My baby boy is already 7 months old!
I had invisioned a letter to Kian every month for the first year...well I sort of skipped the last few months! I have no idea where the time has gone. Anyway, baby boy you are now 7 months and some change. Wow! It has been a great 7 months. I really couldn't ask for a better baby, let's hope this continues as you get older :-). You have progressed since your last letter at 4 months. You are now around 19.5+ pounds and at a very chunky monkey stage. All round and full of baby fat. However, I don't think this will last too long because you are on the move!
In the last few weeks you have mastered comando crawling or slithering...you are very good at moving yourself across the room on your belly, especially if it is for something interesting like a cord. You move and roll and spin all over now. It's very fun to watch. You are also excellent at sitting and will sit and play in you play area for quite a long time. You are getting more interested in toys but still prefer anything that you aren't suppose to have (phone, cords, space heater, etc).
You still love to eat and seem to be enjoying solid foods more and more. You are constantly trying to take our food away from us! You are also trying to blow raspberries on our cheeks now (or the couch!) and occasionally it works. Most of the time we end up with a very wet, licked cheek though. You love to play peek-a-boo and actually cover your own face quite a bit. You are a massive drooler! You still smile all the time but it is very hard to get you to laugh. And even then it isn't a traditional giggle. You sleep very well and we are able to put you down and you will fall asleep on your own! However, I still like to cuddle you to sleep most of the time :-). You adore Isabel and find her very intertaining and you are finally tall enough to move around in your walker. It is so amazing to watch your personality and new skills emerge! I wish we could just slow down time a little.
Christmas was fun. You managed to tear little tiny pieces of paper off the presents but then wanted to eat the paper. We took to long to open presents and you fell asleep about half way through. I think you're favorite part of the day was when all the family was over holding you and spoiling you! You love to be held!
