James turns 7 months old!

Stats: 28.5 inches long & 18 pounds

Sleep: Still not sleeping through the night! To be honest though, I think I have kind of surrendered to the cause. I have an awesome (seriously awesome!!) husband who gets up with James 2x a night. Once at 11 pm (Rob is still basically awake at this time) and then again at 4 am. I am a complete train wreck if I don't get enough sleep and so I am very grateful Rob gets up with James. He is getting better about not wanting a bottle when he wakes up though, just needs a little TLC then back to sleep. Maybe we are almost through the woods-?!

baby suspenders just kill me.

Eating: James started on solids this month! He started out with squash (after a week of oatmeal and rice cereal), which was totally not a hit. He went on a strike and wouldn't eat anything from a spoon for at least a week. After that week he caved and finally started eating again. 

Things he likes: Oatmeal, green beans (they are his favorite!), sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, water (he thinks water is the best treat in the world!) I'm glad he likes the healthy stuff because I eat too much junk and need to be better about what I eat- I'm glad he doesn't take after me!

Things he hates: Rice cereal, puffs, anything sweet.

a happy boy after trying carrots for the first time

Sitting up on his own, getting up on all fours, rocking back and forth, he can take one little move forward with crawling, jabbering (blah blah blah blah)

trying out carriers- after about 3 we finally found one we liked.
We ended up with the Baby Bjorn (not pictured)

feeding puffs to ducks at the park-
it's all we had and James won't eat them anyway

Fun Facts:
-Went on an airplane for the first time
-Fed the ducks
-Had his first friends, Max and Hannah
-Went out to dinner and breakfast
-Moved up to size 3 diapers (they are still pretty big on him though)
-Went swimming again at the rec center

this guy LOVES bath time!
