7 months!

I have not updated on my little man recently.  I have to say that this past month has been my absolute favorite!  {Do I say that every month?}  Anyways, Jack has really come alive this past month.  He has gotten on much more of a schedule and I kinda like it. :)

He has been sitting really well the past month and is thisclose to crawling!  He gets on all fours and rocks.  He also army crawls and stands on his toes, channeling some sort of yoga pose.  Downward dog maybe?

Just this morning {kinda glad I waited till now to post}, his first tooth broke through the surface!  Tooth #2 is right there too.  Isn't it just like motherhood to want something for your child and then when it happens, it's kinda sad.  For instance, I won't get to see that gummy smile for too much longer.  SAD.  He seems to be following his sister's developmental path, almost exactly.  Sitting at the same time, teeth at the same time, and I assume crawling will be at the same time as Reese too.

He has become much more vocal this past month.  He says "mama", "dada", "didi".  I happen to ADORE baby talk.  It's my favorite.  Jack-man doesn't like to be left alone.  He would actually be pretty happy to just sit about 2 feet away from someone and stare into their face.  Or, at least make sure they are staring into his. He's all about some human contact these days.

He jumps all the time.  In the jumper, the bouncer, on your tummy, in your arms, etc.  It's becoming a challenge to hold him still.

{where's Waldo Jack?}

He wears 6-9 month clothes.  He can still wear 3 month short sleeve onesies, but his arms need the 9 month size.  He's gonna be tall, I just know it.

ON A GOOD DAY, {notice that's a theme from my previous "monthly" posts} he takes two 2 hour naps a day and then a 45 min - 1 hour nap during dinner.  He goes down around 8 and usually wakes up around 7:30 or 8.  USUALLY.  There are mornings he wakes up sometime between 5-7 and takes a bottle then goes right back to sleep.  I'm hoping sure one of these months, I will be able to type something like, "this is what Jack does every day/night."  But so far, I cannot type that.

{Do you see the height on that hair?  People pay good money for that kind of volume. :)}

He loves to grab anything.  Hair, jewelry, clothes, toys, etc.  He's a grabbing machine.  I guess he's just at that tactile stage where he needs to feel everything and then promptly put it in his mouth! :)

Reese is loving Jack.  She wants to give him hugs and tell him good morning/night.  She calls him her "best boy" and tells him how cute he is all the time.  I can't wait to see this relationship develop.

My boy loves to ride in the stroller more than anything.  He hates the car and tolerates anywhere else besides the stroller or your arms.  He's not spoiled or anything. ;)  Thankfully, now that he's slithering on the ground, he does like to be put down.  But please don't leave the room.  Don't even think about leaving the room.

He likes most foods, and is even eating veggies again!  He drinks soy formula, which is good because Reese drinks soy milk, he will also be drinking/eating all things soy.

{Yes, that's frosting.}

He has an incredible little laugh and I cannot handle his scrunchy nose.  His hair is amazing and I couldn't have imagined more beautiful eyes.  He is my favorite little boy and I can't wait to see what the future holds for him!

{GAH.  Love him.}
