Seven Months

Wills is now seven months old. I can't believe how quickly he is growing. He has turned into a real wiggle worm and getting snuggles from him has become a treat because it is so rare. He isn't crawling yet, but he has become quite good at scooting backwards. He is especially quick when you let him do it on the hardwood floors. He has also become a big fan of Holly. She loves him too, just maybe not quiet as much. He gives her kisses regularly. Unfortunately his version of a kiss is open mouth with his tongue out. 

Wills is still such an amazing sleeper. We are so thankful. We have discovered that if his afternoon nap is anything less than 2 hours, a cat nap is needed to make it to our 8 o'clock bedtime. We have had him on a pretty strict schedule since I went back to work and recently have tried to be a little more flexible regarding our evening routine and bedtime. He is a pretty social little guy and likes to be out and his schedule was limiting this. So far he has adjusted beautifully to any changes. We just try not to do it more than once a week. 

He is still drooling quite a bit and we still don't have any teeth!!! He is loving eating solid foods and is really interested in anything that Charles or I are eating. He is super quick too and has grabbed things off our plates before we even realize it. He is eating solids three times a day in addition to his formula. He has a grain and a fruit/vegetable at each meal. He has now added sweet potatoes, peas, apples, bananas, rice cereal, oat cereal, nectarines, pumpkin, peaches, yellow squash, carrots, and yogurt to his diet. He is a great eater and finishes everything we give him.
