7 Months & the Pumpkin Patch

October 13, 2015

We made it to 7 months without any causalities on the parent or baby part. 

Survival all around. 

Naps for everyone!

Ooo is that grass?

Weight: 17.4 the week of the virus, but I'm sure we are bigger by now. It's been about 3-4 weeks since the last weigh in. 

Length/Height: Who knows

Eyes: more hazel, they go between blue to green/brown depending on what he's wearing

Hair: Brown like Mama's!

Clothes: 9-12 months

Diapers: Size 3 all around, day and night, but we are working towards 4's. 

Likes: We've gotten Mama clingy. Harrison loves bathing in the kitchen sink and splashing like crazy. He loves biting my finger when I put teething oil in his mouth and laughing, same goes for blowing raspberries at us. The more we react the funnier he thinks it is. Basically he likes to think he is scaring Mama. Peek-a-boo is a big one right now. He loves eating, but loves nursing more. The child likes to be on the go and see people. 

Dislikes: Not being within clinging distance of Mama. 

Eating: He went a week where we really liked chicken and broccoli. Oddly enough Chicken Tikka Masala was a hit one night. He eats anything we set in front of him, minus cereals and puffs. He doesn't manipulate them well in his mouth and gags, I think it's because they stick to his tongue. 

Sleeping: We relapsed. Mama hasn't slept all night in weeks, thank you teeth, virus, teeth, cold combo. I thought maybe it was a CIO issue, nope. He goes down fine if I put him in bed awake, he's been waking up hungry. I'm assuming growth spurt. 

Milestones: He sits unassisted for long stretches very well and is army crawling. He made it across the nursery to get the humidifier with his wonky army crawl. 

If I had to describe our seventh month in one word, it would be: Object-permanence, with a Mama and Daddy carrying Psychology degrees we were sure to hit a month that could only be described by a developmental milestone. He's learn that we possess the ability to leave, and he thinks we are never returning. 

Mommy notes: Two teeth, in one month we gained two teeth. Hence the dark circles and lacking of working out on Mama's part.  

Cute with Daddy, attacking Mama. 

Our first time at the Pumpkin Patch last weekend. 

It didn't go over well. 

Clearly next time I plan to ask a stranger to take our picture I should put on my sunglasses if I'm going to insist on taking off my makeup after work.

In my defense it was a week of zero sleep and I had 4 cups of coffee to look awake. After that little sleep my skin gets oily and I can't stand makeup. 

Even though he looks as miserable as can be this is my favorite pic from the evening. It's hopefully not, but it would still be cute if it was, a foreshadowing of Christmas. 

Can you tell mean ole Mama woke him up from an unintentional car nap to stick him with some pumpkins?
