7 Months Old and Im in Denial

It's Sunday December 4 and my babies are 7 months old. How did this happen? Where have my teeny tiny babies gone?  I think it is even weirder that they have been home for five months. Maybe that is why it is still so weird to me that they are seven months old.  Slow down teeny tinies. Mommy is not ready for you to grow up!

During your seventh month we did a lot of fun things. Including:

  • we went to your NICU follow up with the Developmental pediatrician. Both of you did really well scoring between 4-5 months for everything. I was really happy. We go back in March!
  • We had your first Thanksgiving.
  • Emma had her first and hopefully last ambulance ride
  • We went to the pulmonologist. Levi your asthma is seems to be finally getting under control and you only need the breathing treatments every now and then.
  • Emma went shopping with mommy
  • We played with Aunt Jill lots of times
  • Nonny and Poppy Butch visited
  • We had your six month shots. Ouch

Some 7 month facts:

  • You have finally started rolling. You go from tummy to back and with a little help will go the other way
  • you love to be tickled
  • you love to be naked. you laugh whenever I get you undressed
  • You are doing much better with holding your head up during tummy time
  • you still aren't a fan of tummy time
  • you love your car walker but mommy only lets you be in it for short periods of times
  • we found out the hard way you are allergic to apples and pineapples.
  • you take four 6-8 oz bottles and eat two "meals" a day
  • you sleep through the night most nights. You go to bed around 7 and wake up anywhere between 6-8.
  • we are working on taking better naps. You are doing pretty well with your morning nap and then we struggle the rest of the day
  •  you are still doing physical therapy but i am thinking you wont need it much longer
  • You have started to be afraid of strangers. You stick that bottom lip out!
  • your eyes have started to change colors and are very similar to daddy's.
  • Your hair is still really dark and there is a lot of it
