6 and 7 months

Today Spencer turns 7 months old.  Holy cow!  I absolutely cannot believe how fast the time has flown.  In fact, being the slacker (aka crazy busy) mom I am, I didn't do a 6 month post, so I'm doing both today!

6 months:

Spencer weighed 19lbs  ozs and was   inches long.  He's easily meeting all his developmental milestones.  He is sitting on his own, saying one consonant (of course it's "da"), getting up on all fours, putting everything in his mouth, and babbling like crazy.  He loves, loves, loves sweet potatoes and bananas!  He really does not like apples and peas.  He recognizes us when we pick him up from daycare and gets excited to see his favorite teacher.  Diaper changes are often a struggle and we had our second ear infection this month- ugh!

7 Months:

(Holy Cheeks, Batman!)

At his ear recheck apt, he weighed about 19lbs 14ozs.  He's now rocking back and forth on all fours and crawling backwards (which really frustrates him!).  He can stand up at the edge of a table or a piece of furniture if we put him up there.  He can get from sitting to all fours and back with little difficulty.  He continues to say "da" all the time, absolutely no "ma".  He did do a "buh" once, but I haven't heard that repeated.  The other day in the car when I was singing a Christmas song, he definitely was making singing-like noises in his carseat.  My heart totally melted!!  He still loves sweet potatoes, but is much more tolerant of his green beans and his peas.  He is actually getting finger foods into his mouth, though it takes one or two tries. 

That's my little buddy for the past two months.  Love him like crazy!!!!


  1. I don't blame him for not liking peas. Always my least favorite too!
