7 months

really how does this happen that he is closer to a year than not! he is such a big boy with a big personality. i love it when strangers come up and comment on him. it is so funny! some people will say things like your baby has a great tan. right! we spray tan like toddlers and tiaras! or what a beautiful baby girl. really he is in all blue? but i do love that when people comment on his gorgeous smile or dimples i can without being too prideful say yes he is beautiful!


at 7 months capo is crawling backward, in circles and now on August 24th he has figured out how to crawl forward. which has opened up a whole new world to this monkey! and he is a monkey!! no more are his toys any fun because he can reach the garbage or the dishwasher. why would he want to play with his book when the tv cabinet looks much better! our house is not baby proof...yet!


at 7 months he loves to make lots of noise-screams, giggles, coos and of course gurgles. so funny.


he will sit in my lap for books at night and loves to look at pictures, touch the pages and flip it around. even eat it at times. he loves his bath time book and fabric books best. and has been introduced to bubbles he is not sure about them yet. oh! and is terified of elmo which i am not too disappointed about.

capo loves any kind of baby food and for about a week he refused to take a bottle until he got some of his favorite baby food; bananas, or any kind of fruit. i guess he knew there was something better.


he sleeps well but not always through the night! which is hard to go back to blocks of sleep. and it is getting more difficult to put him down because he will fight the sleepiness to see and do and crawl. he now sleeps on his stomach even after us rolling him over and over. several times we have come into his room after hearing small whimpers to find him kneeling with his head down and half asleep not sure how he got into this position but too tired to figure his way out!

baby is getting sweeter each month. now that he crawls he will follow me around and reach for me or grab at my ankles. i love it when he throws his head back and laughs out loud and with a deep belly laugh. i melt. or when he will take a turn singing me a song after i sing one. he can suck you into those dark eyes and he loves to copy our mouth movements.


this was a frustrating month because he wanted to touch and reach for everything but he does not have the gross motor skills to move or control his body the way he wants. i am sure he will be less whinny but things for me will get more complicated as i try to keep up with him.

still no teeth but he chews on everything. he has found a girlfriend at daycare. they try and hold hands and love to sit next to each other. he loves other babies in general but i think those baby girl bows and colors are just so fun!


he surprises me everyday with the things that he is doing! after a nap one after noon i could hear him making noise so I walked in and he had figured out how to pull up on the side of the crib.


I love that he is getting some chub on him! the better to squeeze him with! at 7 months weighing in at 18 lbs 3 oz!! we have a baby scale at home.


he has the longest and darkest lashes ever. I am so jealous.
