oliver at 6 and 7 months

I was a slack mommy and didn't do a 6 month update last month, so I'm doing month 6 and 7 together!

And each month picture continues to get harder and harder! He's been teething so everything must go in his mouth!




Oh, and the facial expressions this kid makes. 





6 months

Weight: 17 lbs 5oz
Height: 27 inches


He had his 6 month checkup and handled his shots like a champ! Didn't even need Tylenol unlike months 2 and 4! We celebrated his first Easter this month!





Clothing
Can still wear 3-6 month in Janie and Jack, because they run big but otherwise wearing 6 and 6-9 months and 9 month footed pajamas because he's long! Wearing size 3 diapers.

Eating
Drinks formula 5 times a day, 6 oz in each and 8 oz in his bedtime bottle. He drank his last bottle of breast milk right before he turned 6 months and now he's only drinking formula. We use Baby's Only and LOVE it!  He eats solids once a day, 1-1.5 oz. He loves sweet potatoes, apples, and butternut squash.

Schedule
Eats at 7 am, 10 am, 1 pm, 4 pm, and 6:30 pm. Then he's in bed by 6:45-7 pm. As for naps, they're about 1 hour 45 minutes-2 hours from when he woke up. So they usually end up being at 8 am, 11-11:30 am, 2 pm, and then takes a catnap in the car on the way home from my mom's at 5 pm. 

Sleep
Literally the day he turned 6 months, he dropped his middle of the night feed and started sleeping 11-12 hours at night now. I started giving him his lovey to sleep with and I really do think that has helped him to learn to self soothe. Whatever it was, I am SO thankful he's sleeping through the night now. He still sleeps in his Baby Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit. 


Likes
He loves his Bright Starts Bounce Bounce Baby Entertainer I can put him in it and it'll keep him busy for awhile.




Dislikes
He's been teething pretty bad this month and has two bottom teeth coming in. That can make for a fussy baby at bedtime!








7 months


This may be my favorite month yet! He's become such a happy, easy going baby and has the biggest squeals and laughs. He's easy to take out to restaurants because he can sit in a highchair now. He's just so much fun!




Clothes
Oliver can still fit into some 6 months clothes but they're getting tight. So he's pretty much wearing 6-9 month and 9 months now. We also started size 4 diapers this month.

Eating
Still eating 5 times a day, same times as 6 months. We started feeding him solid food twice a day this month. I gave him sweet peas for the first time and he loved it.




Schedule
Schedule is pretty much the same as month 6 but he did drop his 4th nap. 


Sleep
Still sleeping 11-12 hours at night with no middle of the night wake ups. I put him down to sleep around 6:45-7 pm and he plays with his bunny lovey for a little while then falls sleep. He's usually up for the day around 6:30-7 am. His naps are can be hit or miss. He sleeps anywhere from 45 minutes-2 hours.


Likes
He loves his Skwish toy and going for rides in the shopping cart!






Dislikes
Being in the same spot for too long. He gets bored!
