Campbell | Seven Months

Weight: 14 pounds, 1 ounce according to the baby scale we have at home.

Height: I always forget to measure his height. Lately, while I'm rocking him to sleep, I just stare in amazement at how long my baby has gotten.

Sleep: Campbell sleeps 11.5 hours every night. He takes 2 naps a day that range anywhere from 1-2 hours.
Eat: I'm still nursing Campbell 5 times a day. He now eats breakfast, lunch and dinner and we've introduced finger foods to him this month. Campbell loves to eat! My Dad calls him a human disposal. Every time I start walking Campbell to his high chair, he lets out a happy squeal. It's so funny! Meal times are still a little messy but within the last few days, Campbell has gotten really great at feeding himself. Most of the food goes in his mouth now, instead of on the floor or in his lap.

Clothes: Still in 3-6 month clothes and size 1 shoes.

Diapers: Size 2 Pampers
Likes: Eating, baths, being outdoors, Ivy and Madison, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Doc McStuffins and Wheel of Fortune. Campbell loves sitting on the floor and playing with his toys. That's what we spend the majority of the day doing. His favorite toys right now are his tambourine, stacking rings, cell phone and Sophie. He likes to watch me stack his rings then he likes to unstack them. We do that over and over and over and over. Campbell still really enjoys laying on his back and every morning, after breakfast, he plays in his jumper for about 15 minutes-20 minutes.

Dislikes: When there's no more food left. He cries and cries once he finishes his meal. He also doesn't like for me to wipe the mess off his face and hands. Campbell still doesn't like for me to rub lotion on him after his baths. He doesn't like when clothes go over his head. Sometimes he gets mad when we put him in his car seat but he gets over it pretty quickly.

Milestones: So many fun milestones this month! Campbell started sitting up which has been so wonderful and makes life way easier. He started eating soft finger foods and he also takes baths like a big boy now.

Month Seven: This has been such a great month! Campbell is so happy just sitting on the floor and playing with his toys. I hope I don't jinx anything, but naps are a piece of cake these days. I knew once we dropped that 3rd nap it would make nap life way easier.....and it has. Campbell doesn't fight them anymore. He falls asleep almost instantly and even if he wakes up when I set him in his crib, he looks at me, closes his eyes, then goes to sleep on his own. Campbell's reflux has also gotten much better this month.

All About Campbell: Seriously, Campbell is such a big sweetheart. He smiles all day long. He's pretty easy most days and is good about going with the flow. He seems to be so content now that he's able to do more "big boy" things like sitting up on his own and feeding himself. He's happiest when his Mommy and Daddy hang out with him together. Campbell LOVES when Ivy and Madison give him kisses. He gets the biggest grin on his face. We try to go for a stroll through the neighborhood every day because he loves it so much. He still takes a bath every day, thinks its funny when we pretend to eat him, and focuses really hard when we say Momma and Dada--although he has yet to say either. Campbell loves looking at himself in the mirror and if I were as cute as he is, I would too! The months are starting to fly by now and a part of me is sad about that. However, it's so exciting watching him grow and learn new things every single day. This baby is starting to turn into a big boy!
