Grady is now 7 months old! He is over halfway to a year, and over halfway done being a "baby". Cue mommy tears.
I weighed him at home and he is a little over 18 lbs right now. Definitely bigger than his big bro was at this stage. I am not sure if he has grown in length this month or not. He is wearing mostly 9 month and 12 month clothes!
Thankfully, the disruption to sleep at the end of last month was just a growth spurt 🙌! He is still doing great in the sleep department, and I am so grateful. He typically goes to sleep around 8:30pm and wakes around 6am. He will occasionally wake for his paci once in the middle of the night and go right back to sleep when I give it to him. I am still swaddling him every night! If it isn't broke, don't fix it right?! I am not sure how much longer it is gonna fit him though 😁. Naps are pretty sporadic for Grady. He will usually take two longer ones and a shorter one, but times vary a lot. He doesn't seem to be bothered or effected by not being on a set routine, yay!
This month we started solids. Grady was definitely not a fan at first. After about two or three weeks he finally got better. He has had carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, peas, apples, peaches, and oatmeal. His favorites so far are oatmeal and apples. We are giving him puffs also to work on hand coordination, and poor thing is struggling! He will get the first one in, then all the others he gets to him mouth but then they stick to his fingers and come back out. Haha. We started water in a sippy cup and so far he is taking two different ones fine.
He is sitting up all on his own really well now. He suddenly hate to lay on his back. He will try to go from sitting to the crawl position, but he likes to move his arm at last minute and face plant instead. Then he gets mad and rolls to his back.
He started clapping this month and loves it. He babbles a bunch and mostly says the dada dada sound.
He got two teeth this month! They have popped through but are tiny. They still hurt though😁, and he is definitely turning into a bitter when nursing (which griffin did too and ultimately ended our nursing at 11 months bc I couldn't take it). Ugh!! I still hanging in there for now.
