I can't believe my chubs is 7 months already. Before you know it I'll be making him a birthday cake. I think Hy looks chubbier in this picture than he really is. He is suprisingly only in the 50% for most everything- and at this stage, brody was FIVE pounds heavier and FOUR inches taller! Brody was a beast. Hyrum is such a sweet little guy, he and I have lots of fun bonding moments together..
At 7 months Hyrum::Rocks back and forth on all fours
::crawls backwards, a little
:sits unsupported w no problems
::can lay down from a sit without bonking his head (he sits all the way forward so that his face is touching the floor then he rolls on his side, haha
::eats all sorts of fun baby food- doesn't care much for peas but still eats them!
::talks all day (baby talk of course)
::says "mama" (according to Tony.. I think it sounds like MUH MUH MUH)
::wakes up at least once in the middle of the night still
::still nursing (I take my babies up to the year so I can skip using formula (not that I have anything against it)
::still obsessed with water and will splash in the bath till I'm soaked. He doesn't even care when he gets his face all wet
::still no visible teeth
::there is not one inch of him that isn't ticklish
::chubbiest thighs (i think it runs in the blood- both my babies were this way)
::not a fan of strangers but warms up eventually
::taking three naps.. but I can foresee one of those going away reeeeal soon.
::around here he's known as spit up king, baby h, hy, squishy, chubs, hyrum man, & happy hyrum
::we play games where I call him stinker for little things (like when he grabs earrings, his feeding spoon, stuff he shouldn't, etc) and he just cracks up & keeps doing it. I love it!
basically I thought I could make these pictures last till he was a year. I'm thinking it's more of a "first 6 months" thing because this was literally two seconds later. Now that he's mobile, I can't keep him in place to save my life.... doesn't matter if I give myself the fastest shutter speed possible.
SO this is probably the last blue-blanket-picture you'll see. And I had big plans for this one, too (in the way of animation, since that's been the trend) but he's just. TOO... over it (;
