Charlie - 7 Months

Since I've only been blogging for a month, this is my first update about Charlie. Better late than never!

Weight: 16 pounds, 3 ounces (as of a week ago)

Sleep: Bedtime is between 7:30 and 8, waking up around 4 am to eat, then going back down until 6:30. He'll take 2-3 naps during the day at daycare, but does not nap nearly as well for us. I plan on working on that when I'm home with him soon.

Feeding: Eating 6 times a day and around 5 oz per feeding, and solids around 6 pm. Going to increase solids to twice a day, now that we've done once a day for a month. Kid loves apples and bananas, but hates all vegetables, like his father. I will change that. We currently mix applesauce with veggies.

Diaper Size: Just moved to size 2, but we won't be in those for long! Kid is growing some thighs.

Clothes Size: 3-6 months, mostly. He just finally grew out of all of his 0-3 month, and almost immediately, the 3-6 are almost too small. Overnight.

Hair Color: The tiny amount of hair he has is brown. He's just starting to grow hair. We joke that switching to formula put some hair on him.

Eye Color: Brown

Milestones: Sitting up, eating solids, bouncing really, really hard and fast in his exercauser and laughing, 'reading' books, yelling at his parents when he's upset (usually dada or mama, but I know he doesnt know what those mean yet), first tantrum when I took something away from him (quite comical), cracking up at the dog.

Nicknames: Baby Boy, Charlie Beluga (remember the Raffi song 'Baby Beluga'?), Mister, Buddy Boy, Baby, Honey (Sidenote: I've never called a significant other 'Baby' or 'Honey'. These have always been reserved for babies in my book.)

  5. Yes to Baby and Honey always being BABY nicknames! Finally someone who gets it!
    Charlie is just so cute, I want to squeeze his adorable cheeks!! Eeeek. He's such a peanut, 3-6 month stuff still - that's great! I cannot believe how fast they grow out of stuff though. It seems as though they hit a spurt and everything really is too small overnight.
    Love that he says Dada and Mama - I'm so impatiently waiting for the day haha.
    Have you found any veggies he likes yet?
