This Little Cutie...

  • Loves his momma.  Always smiles when I come into a room.
  • Rolls around from one end of the room to the other.
  • Loves sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, bananas, apples and anything flavored with cinnamon.  Weird.
  • Just started using a sippy cup but still is a bit unsure of it.
  • Can fit into 9-12 month clothing!
  • Weighs 20 lbs. and is 28 inches long.  He is the same size Will was at 9 months!  
  • Just turned 7 months yesterday.  Where has the time gone?
  • Is on the verge of crawling or army crawling.  He can lift his torso up and move himself around in circles.  He has gotten really good at grabbing his toys in this position.
  • Is still working on sitting up.  Lew and I joke that he will be crawling before he sits up.
  • Loves his bouncer and goes crazy in it when he gets excited.
  • Loves watching his big brother play and smiles all the time at him.
  • Loves for daddy to tickle him and then he clinches up in a little ball.  It's the cutest.
  • Does really well with naps.  But, if he takes a cat nap in the car, he considers that a nap.  We are still trying to recover from vacation and the lack of naps.  However, he is still not sleeping through the night.  I have tried everything I can think of.  He usually gets two good naps a day, he eats 6oz. every 4 hours and he is now eating something at breakfast, lunch and dinner.  I put him to bed between 7-8:00 depending on how he is feeling.  It seems like after 5-8 hours of sleeping he wants to wake up and eat.  He actually eats about 6oz. too.  Everything I have read says, if he is still eating, its okay for him to be waking.  If he is not eating much then he is just wanting you.  So, I am not sure why he is still waking.  Will was sleeping through the night at about 4 months and I definitely was not consistent with his naps like I am with Eli's.  If you have any advice, I would greatly appreciate it!

Don't stress about the sleeping through the night thing too much. Oscar is 9 months, and he still wakes up about 3 times per night. We'll get there eventually!

We have the EXACT same thing with gwen with sleeping through the night. Graham started at about 12 weeks, and here we are with Gwen at 6 months, and STILL not sleeping through the night. She is eating though, and I'm not ready to make her cry it out. On the nights John gives her a bottle, she eats 6 ounces.
