little big Mr. Nolan,
You are seven months old and continue to grow like a weed! Food is your newest adventure and you are trying to eat everything in sight! You have decided that you don't want to eat anything that is a puree' or offered to you on a spoon- I think that you have forgotten that you are still a baby! You like to gum on anything that you can get your chubby little hands on and you really go to town. I think one of your favorite foods is pasta!
You are starting to get into everything and really want to play with anything that Everett has and Everett doesn't want you to play with anything. It seems that sibling rivalry is starting early with you two! You also started moving forward this past month- not full out crawling but you have places to go and people to see! And another fun development that we had this month- you went pee and poo on the potty! We practiced elimination communication with Everett and are going to start incorporating that into your daily routine too. :)
We are still cosleeping and that is going pretty well still. You pretty much sleep all night but you also nurse on and off throughout the whole night as well! I don't mind it so much because I know that you are getting the nutrition and comfort you need. You only want me to hold you at night and there is pretty much a zero percent chance of me being able to put you down after 4pm every day. Sometimes this frustrates me because I have "things to get done" but I try to remind myself that this wont last forever!
Here's what you've been up to this past month:
11/29/13: First Black Friday shopping trip (Best Buy)
11/30/13: Pushed up to a sitting position from being on his stomach
12/01/13: Started getting up on hands and feet and rocking on your knees
12/05/13: Started sucking your thumb
12/12/13: Started picking up food and feeding yourself
12/13/13: First time to pee and poop on the potty
12/14/13: Rolled from your back to front
12/16/13: Moved into 9-12 month clothing
12/17/13: Started moving forward/belly crawling
Momma and daddy love you to the moon and all the way back!
