Well, another month has come and gone and this little dude is already 7 months old. Time sure does seem to fly…and I’ve discovered that time doesn’t only fly when you’re having fun, it also flies when you’re sleep deprived and/or not having fun.
This guy has his good nights and bad nights and we just have to keep reminding ourselves that it won’t last forever. Not only are his nights bad, but he doesn’t take much of a nap during the day. Sometimes he’ll take two short (45 minutes or less) naps, other days he takes one long (1-2 hours) nap…and it doesn’t seem like we’re ever going to get him on a steady schedule, but I know that this too will work itself out with practice and patience.
As you can see from the pictures, he’s sitting up pretty steadily on his own now (just not in the tub!). He’s babbling more and more every day, and he’s saying “mah mah” which tickles me to no end! I know he doesn’t know what it means, but I’m just glad that he’s saying that before Da Da! All those endless hours of whispering Ma Ma worked! He also makes a ba sound, and he loves to scream in delight whenever we play with him.
He is a such a sweet baby and we all just love him to pieces…and I hope he knows it.
