7 Months--Logan

Logan Michael, you are SEVEN months old!

What have you been up to?

*I'm not sure what your stats are, but you seem to be growing at an appropriate rate.

*You are still wearing size 3 to 6 month clothing.  You wear size 6 to 9 month pajamas though.

*You are still in size 3 diapers.

*Unfortunately, the nighttime diapers are just not working for us.  I usually change you in the middle of the night when you eat, otherwise we have a leak every time.  I'm hoping this changes when you give up your middle of the night snack.

*Speaking of sleep, your schedule is as follows--up around 7 (roughly), naps at 9 and 1, and back to bed around 7.  Your naps are about an hour and a half to 2 hours long.  You also still get up once a night to eat.  You were waking twice some this month, and I'm not sure why, but we seem to have gotten that fixed.

*Olivia gave up her middle of the night feeding on her own around 7 1/2 months.  I have mentally prepared myself for this milestone, so you have two weeks to get it together! ;)

*You can easily roll from back to stomach and from stomach to back.  You do this most when you are in your bed.  Somehow you always end up in the corner of the crib.  You sleep on your stomach for most of the time.

*You love to chew on things.  You put most toys in your mouth.  You would put everyone's fingers in your mouth if they would let you.  Your teeth hurt!

*You know what the word "milk" means.  You also know what the sign language for "milk" means.  We even think we saw you do it the other day!  You love your bottle!  You get 4 bottles in the day and one in the middle of the night.  You are still taking the same 30 to 34 oz.  I am hoping we drop that middle of the night bottle SOON!

*You aren't a huge fan of solids.  You still have a tongue thrust and the food just isn't as interesting to you.  You've been doing better as time has gone on though.  This month you have had avocado, sweet potatoes, green beans, pears, bananas, peas, apples, squash and peaches.  You've also had oatmeal, which you seem to enjoy.

*As of right now, you are only eating one meal a day and it is usually dinner.  You eat about 2 ounces.  You may eat 3 ounces if it is something you like.

*Your sitting has gotten better and better as the month goes on.  You still topple over some, but you can last for a long time most of the time.

*You are just now starting to raise yourself up farther on your arms.  You still hate to be on your stomach, so you don't hang out there for very long.  I am anticipating you being a late crawler like your sister.

*You like to have screeching matches with your sister.  You also try to copy sounds made with the mouth, and blow bubbles often.

*You seem to be in the beginning stages of stranger danger, but it's not too bad yet.

*You seem to enjoy being out and about.  You sometimes get bored with things at home.

*You like when we sing to you, and your favorite song is "The Noble Duke of York".

*You've started clapping your hands! At least in your 7 month way.

Happy 7 Months, Bubby!  We love you!
