7 Months Old

As of this past Saturday... our little man is 7 months old!
James weighs in right around 20 pounds now and is about 26.5 inches tall.  He is still wearing size 3 diapers and is just starting to wear some of his 6-9 month size clothes.

While he is still not sleeping all the way through the night, he is getting better.  He normally falls asleep around 7pm or so and before we go to bed around 10pm/11pm we give him another bottle to help him sleep longer.  He then sleeps for a good 5-6 hours, gets a snack and then sleeps for a few more hours. He usually wakes up in the morning around 7am - but sometimes he wakes up at 5am in the morning and will be wide awake and ready to go!

James is still loving be able to sit up on his own.  He is pretty good now at scooting himself around on his play mat to get the toy he wants, although he does have the occasional face plant!  The past few days, he has begun kinda flopping himself over one-side of the boppy pillow so that he is in a semi-crawling position.  He will put his arms out in front of him and one leg will be in the right position to crawl and the other one will be stuck under him in the seated position.  I think he wants to crawl... just does not understand how to do it!  

Another new thing he has been doing is grabbing his feet.  He loves to lay down and grab his feet and try to suck on his toes.  It is so cute.  Makes me laugh every time!
