7 Down, 989* To Go....
the 989 months estimate is based upon the current male life expectancy of 83 years.
7 months have passed since Charlie came into our lives. They have gone so fast! He is changing these days at lightening speed! In the last 3 weeks he has perfected crawling, and seems to be practicing for some baby Olympic speed crawling trials, he has pulled up to a stand, and is now determined to be in no other position if he can help it. Two nights ago he was crying like crazy in his room after I put him to bed, so I rushed in and he was standing at the end of his crib, holding on for dear life, because, as much as he has mastered standing, he hasn't figured out how to get back down. Poor guy. He is eating the same repertoire he had last month, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pears, and apples. He has reacted to carrots, so I am holding off on adding anymore until we see the GI specialist tomorrow. We are still struggling to get him to eat more during the day so he doesn't need to eat during the night. He is still a terrible sleeper, waking at least twice every night. Jason and I are still suffering from sleep deprivation, and honestly we aren't sure what to do at this point. I know it has to change soon though, because he is slowly driving us insane. Aside from that small issue, we are so happy we have him. He is so cute, still loves to cuddle, and now follows us around the house like a puppy. He loves to go outside, loves the swings, and adores going down the slide. I am looking forward to having another first Christmas, and seeing him tear all the paper (and eat some), and we are heading up to Boston this week for another conference, so he will get to see all the fun stuff it has to offer. I am dreading the long drive up there, but it will be worth it! Happy 7 months Charlie!
