7 Months Old

{This post is now 2 weeks overdue!  Life has been busy around here.  Austin has hit some major milestones in the last two weeks that I will not be posting here because technically they will go in the 8 month post!  But hopefully I can get a seperate post up soon because they are sooo cool!!  Stay tuned!}

For some reason 7 months seems so much older than 6 months.  I guess because we have officially passed half a year and are heading to 1 year old.  I hope the next 5 months go by slowly so I can soak it all up.


Austin is on the move this month!  He is officially crawling and he is all over the place.  It only took him a few days to get it down and when he did, he was off!!  As the days go by he is getting faster and faster and we have quickly learned that we can't keep him in the living room playing while we try to do other things.  Nope, all eyes need to be on our boy as he moves around the house looking for things to grab and put in his mouth.  At this time his favorite "toys" are shoes, stray leaves that make it inside the house, sunglasses, whatever we are eating, cell phones, etc. 


He is still wearing 3-6 month clothes but I'm sure I could move him up to 6-9 any day now.  He is wearing size 3 diapers.

He is now eating 3 meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner.  He does very well with baby food and has started with puffs.  He wants what we eat and when we are out to dinner he has had lemons, limes and tortillas.  I'm currently on the hunt for more things he can eat when we are out to keep him distracted at the table. 

I put him in the front of the grocery cart and in a high chair at a restaurant for the first time this month and he loved it!!  He was so cute in the grocery store and everyone wanted to smile at him and say hi!  He was in awe.  I was happy because without his car seat in the basket, I could get more groceries!


He is still sleeping great.  Two naps a day and about 12 hours at night.  Occasionally when Daddy is home he tries to skip nap time!  Daddy is just too fun!

Austin is finally getting a little more hair and it is very light blond, so for the most part he still looks bald!  He still does not have any teeth which is fine by me!  Recently people have started saying that he looks like my dad.  We think he has the Bohne eyes and forehead, but for the most part he still looks a lot like Tayt!

I'm back at work which means Tayt is in charge during the day while I work.  We are so thankful for this time with our boy and grateful that he will spend his first year at home and not in childcare.  God definitely knew what he was doing in our lives!!!

We love that his personality is starting to really come out.  He laughs out loud all of the time, yells to get our attention, smiles and snuggles.

This month has been busy....He spent the first night away from us at Lovey and G's, went to the Todd Family Reunion and to visit his Mimi (Tayt's mom), went out to eat a lot, went swimming and took a lot of morning walks in the neighborhood.

Happy 7 months baby boy!  You are our whole world and we love every little bit of you!!!!!!!
