Seven Months

Caleb has done so much in the past month. He has started eating food, sitting up by himself and a tooth broke through on the bottom of his mouth.

Caleb eats cereal or oatmeal for breakfast and then drinks milk from a sippy cup. Depending on what time he gets up, he has more milk for a snack and then eats food for lunch. He has liked everything we have fed him: peas, green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, prunes, apples, bananas... Caleb usually has another bottle of milk in the afternoon and then eats more food and milk for supper. He does great while eating. He opens his mouth like a little bird and waits for us to feed him.

Caleb loves to play. He plays in his exersaucer in the mornings and watches the dogs outside the window. He laughs at the dogs every time he sees them. His favorite thing to do is still the jumper. My favorite thing for Caleb to do is sit on the floor by himself so I can sit in front of him and play with him. We still put pillows around him because he tips over sometimes, but for the most part he does great sitting up on his own. His favorite toys are the rings on the peg and the shapes in the bucket. Caleb still loves to go outside. Any time he is crying, I just walk him outside and he is happy.

Caleb's first tooth broke through on August 28th. We found out because he bit Bridget at church. Of course, we didn't let him chew on our fingers, so we don't know exactly when it broke through. We brushed his tooth for the first time yesterday. He seemed to like it okay. He wanted to suck on the toothbrush.

Caleb is growing up so quickly! I know he is only 7 months old, but he is so much bigger than when we first brought him home :-) He still sleeps pretty good. He sleeps for about 12 hours at night, waking up once or twice. He takes two naps during the day, each lasting about 45 minutes. Caleb is so adorable! I could just hug and kiss him all day long!!!
