7 Months

Dear Carson,

You are over one half year old now.  I know that is obvious since you're 7 months old.  It's just that this monthly milestone makes you much closer to being a boy and a little further away from being a baby.  

You're doing more things on your own than you once did.  I can already see your independence and desire to try new things.  It won't be long now and you will be crawling and chasing after your puppies.  You get really frustrated when you want to follow them and struggle.  

You continue to amaze everyone that meets you by just being you.  They can't believe what a great baby you are - and I am so happy I get to be your mama.  

I don't know how I got chosen as yours, but I'm so thankful I did.

7 Month Update
Weight:  19 pounds
Length:  27 inches
Nicknames: The Milkman, Milk Monster, CT, Hungry Hungry Hippo, Bubby, Monster, Buddy Boy, Stinka, Bubba
Sleep: You generally go to bed around 8:00 and wake up around 6:30 a.m.  Sometimes you will wake up earlier, talk to your hands/toys and fall back asleep.  Lately, you've gotten so tired from all the playing and you have started going to sleep much earlier.  Your naps are still short, but you are taking 3-4 a day.
Eating: All the veggies and fruits!  You like everything.  You've also tried eating small pieces of banana and avocado.  You would rather smear them all over your high chair and play in them than feed yourself though.  You have also tried the little yogurt bites - you aren't quite sure you like those yet.
Clothing: 6-9 months

  • Playing
  • Your Fisher Price Seahorse
  • Bath time - especially now that you are sitting in your bath seat and playing with toys
  • Walks/Runs with Mommy
  • Your "wubby" 
  • The pool/water
  • Your jumparoo
  • The dogs!!  You follow them (with your eyes) everywhere...it's only a matter of time before you are chasing them around the house.
  • Sweet potatoes and mangoes
  • Yogurt bites (I think they are too sweet)
  • Being hungry
Exciting Moments:You got 2 bottom teeth!
You are scooting around and army crawling around the living room floor to get to your toys.
You tried yogurt for the first time (I mixed in mangoes so that you would like it better)
You are working on your sippy cup
Momma's Milestones:
I am running an 11 minute mile with the jogging stroller.

I currently weigh less than I did before getting pregnant.

A little look at the last 7 months...


  1. I can't believe he's 7 months already!

  2. So bittersweet. I can't believe he's already 7 months... whenever I see his updates I can't believe it and then a part of me aches because I know my little one is days away to 6 mo... I'm going to cry just thinking about it.

  3. I can't believe he's 7 months old!! and what a cutie he is! Lets get together soon :)


  4. Gets cuter each month. Congrats on the weight loss.

  5. so cute! I get sad at how fast it goes!
