7 months old!!!
My baby is seven months old today!!! Squirt is such a joy to our family. He loves to laugh and be loud with squeals that hurt our ears. Often when I pick him up he grabs my cheeks with both of his hands and puts his open mouth up against my mouth to give me a big wet kiss. He still loves his nursing time, but eats about six jars of baby food per day in addition to some baby cereal. He probably weighs in at around 18-19 pounds and his big Sweeney melon-head is probably half of that weight! He has always been a good sleeper and patient when awake in his bed, just playing and talking when he's waiting for us to come and get him. Lately he has been waking up at 5 a.m., not hungry but ready to start his day - just like Sauce used to. Hopefully he'll get the message soon that when he's just laying there alone and it's still dark out, that no one else is ready to wake up! We love our "wittle wuke" as Rufus calls him and look forward to each day with him.
