Seven months came up on us so quickly, and we’re going to be at a year before we know it (or maybe I mean before we are ready!) It seems like Cameron’s learning or doing something new everyday, and we are still staring at him in amazement.
7 Month Stats (as of 3.7.13):
Weight:19lbs 4oz (with clothes on)
-Getting up on his hands and knees. (2/18/13)
-Actually making a few crawling movements forward, though with no particular destination.
-Eating puréed fruits and veggies, and “chewing” on steaks and ham until the flavor is gone.
- First ‘solids’ in his diaper, which means no more explosions at least for now. (Cameron probably won’t be happy this is in writing.)
“A Day in my Life”- Saturday, March 9th
1:45am: I’m sure you don’t remember wearing a diaper, but when it is full it is uncomfortable. My diaper is full so I’m awake, but daddy comes in and helps me out. No lights are turned on so I know I must go back to sleep after.
5:10am: I think it’s about time for mom to get up, so I let her know I’m hungry. She indulges me and we snuggle while I eat. Then back into my crib I go for more sleep.
8:05am: I can see the sunshine peaking through my curtains so it must be morning. I look around and notice the camera attached to my crib- looks like a good toy to me!
8:10am: Mom gets me up, gives me a clean diaper, I get dressed for the day, and we go see if daddy is wake. He’s not so we go downstairs to play, and mom gets my bottle started.
8:30am: Mom and I head upstairs so I can eat while she and dad ready for the day.
9:00am: My belly is full and I’m ready for an adventure! Dad loads me in the car seat while mom packs up a bag of bottles and food. Next stop Kostas! (Otherwise known as our favorite Greek place.)
9:30am: Mom and dad sip coffee while I get to enjoy some sweet potato and applesauce. I also get to sit in a big boy high chair, it allows me to better reach for things on the table. Oh, the lady gave me a straw!
10:30am-1:00pm: We’re on the road again! Mom and dad want to check out SUVs to give us more room when we travel. I find it boring so I just nap off and on. We drive a couple cars, but I’m good and just take it all in. What’s that smell? Oh ‘new car’!
1:00pm: We stop at our favorite VW dealer too, mom and dad seem well known here. People think I’m pretty cute too!
1:15pm-2:30pm: Dad gets his car serviced so we test drive another SUV. I stay awake for this one, and also flirt with anyone around.
3:00pm: Mom and dad get lunch, which means I get more sweet potatoes and apple sauce! I have been snacking on bottles throughout the day but I’m really liking this eating thing.
4:30pm: Back at home with Dad to play with my toys and crawl around. Mom heads out for groceries.
5:15pm: Tired from a long day of being good, so fall asleep on dad’s chest.
6:00pm: Mom’s back from shopping, and I wake up as I hear her come in. Dad and I head to the kitchen to help. I play with the whisk on the floor.
7:00pm: Dinner time. Mom switches it up with some carrots, and I also get to practice picking up puffs.
7:30pm: Play time before I get my shower. Mom builds a tower and I knock it over selecting a colorful block to chew on.
8:30pm: Mom gives me a shower then dad gets me dressed for bed. Then a get a big bottle.
9:00pm: I fell asleep while eating but wake a little as mom and dad kiss me good night. Dad puts me in my crib and covers me with my blanket. So cozy, see you in the morning!
See you next month!
