Watching a baby grow and change is so much fun, and especially once they hit about half a year old and you start to really see their personality shine through. Charlie at 7 months is pure sunshine. He's one of the most smiley babies I've ever known, and if you were to be around him, I'm sure you'd feel the pure joy he radiates. It will be interesting to watch him grow, and to see if his perpetual smile sticks around. I'm pretty sure it will!
Charlie has four teeth- the top and bottom two- and is working on the ones on both side of those top two. His teething symptom is a runny nose, and we can tell right away when it's going to be a rough, teething day based on that.
He is napping like a champ on a schedule. His naps are 9-11am and 1-3pm. Nighttime sleeping is still spotty, but getting better. Some nights he will wake up just once, although those always seem to be the nights I stay up way too late so I never get to catch up anyway. Of course!
He is fully sitting up on his own but still likes to roll around on his back and tummy.
Crawling. Kind of. He's great at going backwards and army crawling anywhere he needs to go, but true crawling hasn't happened yet. He'll get up on all fours and rock back and forth, but hasn't yet made the connection.
Food is going well. He's been eating "real food" 2-3x a day and loving it. His favorite so far has been a carrot and broccoli puree.
No binky and no thumb sucking. No lovie either!
Still nursing and showing no signs of slowing down. Henry stopped right on his first birthday so I'm curious to see what Charlie is like.
Loves to be worn all of the time.
Laughs and smiles all day long. I know Moms probably say that about their kids often but seriously, this kid is ALL smiles, it's adorable.
Loves to be tickled and sang to.
Enjoys bouncing in his bouncer and "walking" in his walker.
His favorite thing is playing with the O-Ball and rolling in back and forth with Henry. So much laughter!
7 months old is the best. Nothing beats going into Charlie's room in the morning and being greeted by those big green eyes and that smile. His all day babbling leaves us laughing all day long, and I can't wait to watch Henry and Charlie begin to play more and more. I'm already getting to see little glimpses of it, and it's pretty amazing. This time has truly flown by, and it's hard to believe we're getting close to the summer, which means we're getting closer to his first birthday. What!
Love you so much, Charlie boy. And like I say in every post, you are our sunshine!
