7 Months

Height and weight are totally unknown at this point...Mr. Bear doesn't go back to the pediatrician until 9 months (hopefully!) so we'll find out then :). We do know that this baby is big. Can't fit into any clothing under 12 months big.

Things to Remember:
-You are wearing size 3 diapers but probably should move up to size 4 once this box is done. You go through them pretty fast!
-You have bumped your head, pretty hard, on wooden furniture twice in the last week and Mommy and Daddy feel like the worst parents ever. Yes, we know it's going to happen, but that doesn't make it any easier :(. You cried for a minute or two then totally toughed it out both times; you're a trooper!

-You are crawling like crazy. You actually do a half bear crawl most of the time; it's really funny. You crawl with one knee down and the other knee up in a ninety degree angle with your foot on the floor. And you go fast.
-You have just started, in the last 1-2 weeks, eating lots of baby food. You go through 6-7 of the Gerber containers a day (no, we don't make our own baby food. don't judge!). Your favorites are blended fruits with oatmeal, sweet potatoes, squash, and mac 'n cheese with veggies. You actually like it all except anything green. Wonder where you get that from? :/
-You are officially a high chair baby! You are in it all the time at our house and every time we eat in a restaurant. You do really well when we go out; you just eat Puffs and people-watch.
-Your thighs are super ticklish, especially in the rolls. Makes you laugh uncontrollably every time!
-You have TWO teeth! Both of them have sprouted on the bottom and are almost all the way in now.
-You are napping much better, usually taking one in the morning for an hour and one in the late afternoon for 1-2 hours.
-You sleep SO well at night; we're lucky parents! You go down around 9:30-10pm, wake up 7am to eat, and go back to sleep until about 9am.

-You pulled up by yourself for the first time last week on our bottom stair. It was a little scary for Momma, but you did great! You've only done it once since, and we're okay with that.

I say this every month but the fact remains the same...time absolutely flies when you have a baby. It's heartbreaking yet wonderful at the same time; watching a baby grow and learn is truly a beautiful thing. We are so blessed to have such a happy, healthy little Bear!
Hope your weekend's been a great one!
