~111~ Ethan's 7 months old!!

It's incredible to me just how much can change in a month! I am really starting to feel like I have a little boy now and not a little baby! Here's what Ethan's been up to: 

Weight: I weighed him on my bathroom scale a couple of days ago and based on that he's approximately 15Lbs, 9oz.  Considering at his 6 month appointment he was 13lbs 12oz, that's quite the big jump! I'd say we've hit a growth spurt. 

Activities: We haven't done a whole lot out of the ordinary this past month. With school in full swing, we've mostly been just hanging out at home and relaxing on the weekends. At the end of the month.  The biggest thing I'd say is EATING!!  We started solids using the baby-led weaning method, meaning that we complete skipped the puree stage and went right to whole, real food. So far he's had carrots, cauliflower, snap peas, avocado, bananas, watermelon, pear, oranges, whole wheat bread, and whole wheat waffles.

 It started out with uncertainty at first, but he's loving it now! It's been awesome to watch his skills develop.  He went from having a hard time picking up things and getting them into his mouth to easily grabbing what he wants and being able to turn his hand to get it in his mouth.  He still doesn't have any teeth, but he has some strong gums! I'm not sure how much he is actually ingesting, but at this point in time I'm not concerned about that since his main source of food is still breast-milk. 

Favorite things: Waffles! He can't seem to get enough.  Ethan also loves "flying" and standing up. I'm pretty sure he's going to start walking before he crawls. 

Not so favorite things: Honestly, there's really not much he doesn't like! The only time he really cries or fusses is when he's overly tired, hungry, or sick of being in one position for too long. 

1) Ethan is a professional roller now! He can easily roll from stomach to back and back again over and over again. He's quick about it too.  He fell off the couch for the first time a week ago while Jake and I were switching spots :( Luckily it wasn't a far fall and he landed safely on the carpet. 

2) Sitting by-himself.  He's still not sitting completely upright (again, those darn cheeks), but he is able to sit independently for quite a while without toppling over. I'd call that a success!
