oliver at 6 and 7 months

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
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!

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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

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