Ephram at Seven months

Wooohoo! We have had a relatively healthy month other than allergies. So exciting! Ephram still loves to be held, but is content to chill in his excersaucer more than he was. I seem to be the main culprit in him wanting to be held all the time. If he can see me or hear my voice he immediately decides he needs to be picked up. Whoops. I am trying to get better. It's just so hard because he is so snuggly!

Sleep is still overall awesome. We had one night this month where he was up every 1-2 hours and it was awful. He sleeps for about an hour in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. If we are out and about in the morning his nap suffers and he sometimes will need a cat nap around noon and then his regular afternoon nap. He occasionally still needs a cat nap in the evenings too, usually about 20 minutes. He used to wake up screaming and irritated and that has improved greatly. Now he just lays in there and plays and chatters too himself until someone comes to get him.

We had another check up with Dr. Smith this month. He thought Ephram's scar looked a lot better and we did not have to do another steroid shot. He did recommend we start using preparation H on the scar to help with the redness. We don't have to go back again for three months.

His love of food continues. He has not turned up his nose at anything we have offered. He is mostly eating fruits and vegetables. I did introduce oatmeal and tofu this month. Hopefully next month I will add a little more variety into his diet. He is still taking a bottle 4 times a day and usually drinks 7-8 oz each time.

Seven Month Stats:
Weight: 19.8 lbs (65%)
Height: 27 1/2 in (61%)
Head: 18 in (92%)
Clothing size: 9 months and 9 to 12 months
Must haves: wubanubs, lillebaby carrier, big brother
I don't have exact dates for these, but he has discovered his feet and they go in his mouth on occasion, he started "talking" this month and he is sitting up like a champ.

Brothers side by side:

Wills                        Ephram

Ephram was crying and Wills said "It's ok Ephram. Calm down. Take a deep breath." and then he let out a big breath. Too bad big brother doesn't take his own advice!
