Seven Months

Well, Qade is well into his seventh month now and I thought I should post a quick update on what he’s up to. Hee hee, well it may not be quick now that I think about it. 🙂 Let’s see, Qade turned 7 months the week of Thanksgiving, and the next week he finally got the hang of crawling!! He’d been going backwards for awhile, but when I pulled out that wrapping paper that’s all the motivation he needed to get going in the right direction. Now, of course, it makes BOTH of our days a little more exciting as he is exploring new and grand adventures like, electric cords and outlets, and mommy is trying to keep him from those very same things. 🙂 We’re having a great time! He has been responding to his own name as well as “Bubba” for some time now. Qade is just loving his baby food and cereal! He’s still not thrilled with the fruit, but he’s a veggie lover for sure! I’ve been sneaking in a bit of fruit by way of “Oatmeal with Bananas.” This week we’ll probably add “Rice with apples” too, just to see how it goes over. He’s also getting quite a jaw workout munching on “Biter Biscuits” and rice rusks, but he’s not too into swallowing. He likes to munch and spit it out. Pretty funny, but quite a mess too! We have been transitioning to a 4 hour feeding schedule, and he’s done very well at it. The last 2 nights he has woke up shrieking at the top of his lungs and I’m not really sure why, but figure he’s just adjusting a bit to the schedule change. He is still going to bed between 7 and 8, closer to 7 usually. 🙂 And gets up around 7am. Nice night! He is still taking 3 naps a day, but we’ll see how the next week goes, I may start to stretch his afternoon nap a bit and go to 2 naps. I figure the more sleep the better for a growing “wittle guy” but I don’t want the night time scene repeated, and maybe he’s just getting too much in the days. Qade loves board books! He thinks they are mighty tasty, but he likes to hear mommy or daddy read to him too. He still only has the 2 bottom teeth. The top gums have been pretty mushy for awhile, but nothing’s coming through yet. He is wearing size 3 diapers and is grown out of some of his 6 month jammmies. Today I put him in a 6-12 mo, outfit. How they could figure it would fit that large of a range is beyond me, but I think he looks swell in it. He loves to stand “by himself” holding on to the coffee table or the crib, but hasn’t been able to get himself there yet, although he is trying for sure! Hmmmm…. well, I guess I really can’t tell you EVERYTHING although I wish I could. He’s just so much fun! He talks and laughs all the time, and we just have the greatest conversations. 🙂 One day maybe you’ll be lucky enough to meet our boy. Till then I shall attempt to keep you up to date via blog world. 🙂 Ta ta
