Robert Is 7 Months Old Today

This little guy turned 7 months old today!

That's right Robert, you have been on this earth seven whole months
You have learned so many things this past month! You can pull yourself up all by yourself and you can hold on to the couch as you walk along the edge.
This past month you have also started really using your sippy cup! You also love to wiggle your toes and you giggle every time we play "This Little Piggy".

Here is a picture of you today showing off your new Santa diapers= . For those of you who don't know, Huggies has a seasonal Santa diaper out for Christmas. We have just started venturing into the world of cloth diapers, but I thought these were just too cute for words! So, my little bug will have festive undies this holiday season. :)
 You have been babbling up a storm! This month you have been saying "Dada" and "Nana" and "Kee Kee" (around the kitty cat).

Seven Month Stats
At your Doctor appointment two weeks ago you weighed a little over 18 lbs. You were somewhere in the 60% for weight and height.
You are now wearing 6to 9 month clothing, but the 9 month seems to fit you comfortably.
You wear a size 3 diaper.
You are still nursing, you have been trying new foods this month, including; carrots, green beans, banana, apple and oatmeal.
Oh and how could I forget . . . You have another new tooth! That makes a grand total of two teeth so far!!!

A Letter From Mama
Hello Sweetie,
  Happy seven months! I thank The Lord everyday for you Robert! You are a blessing, a joy and a privilege! I am so thankful for each new step and milestone you accomplish. You are filled with energy and you keep Mommy moving!! I love to watch you nurse. You have the sweetest, most dear little way about you. I love your little profile and the way you purse your lips when you are thinking! :)  I am so excited to spend our first Christmas together. Daddy and I love you so much and we would do anything for our dear little boy.

Here you are in my tummy last Christmas!
Much Love,

Here is a little video of you pulling yourself up to stand. This was taken a few weeks ago.
