Jaxon is 7 months old!
... weighs about 22 pounds. (95th percentile)
... wears mostly 9-month clothes but also some 12-month clothes. His 9-month onesies and pajamas are starting to get too small.
... wears size 3 diapers.
... has his two front bottom teeth.
... is moving ... everywhere! He is a great army crawler and will also do a "normal crawl" just a little bit.
... can easily go from a lying down position to a sitting position. He makes it look pretty easy!
... has made our life a little more chaotic now that he is moving everywhere. Ha! And we thought we were busy before! Today he discovered that he could leave the living room floor and get to the kitchen. He thought it was pretty funny!
... does not like it if he doesn't get what he wants! He can sure throw a fit. He especially gets mad when bathtime is over. He plays until the water is cold! He grabs ahold of his bathtub when we try to take him out.
... is a great eater. He drinks about 6 ounces in his bottle about every 3-4 hours. I am kind of surprised that he only drinks 6 ounces. He has been drinking that much for several months now. He does usually like a little extra before bedtime though. He also likes about any kind of food we give him. Since his reflux is still bad, I often mix rice cereal in with a lot of his food. That kind of helps it stick to his tummy a little better. This last week his reflux was great. He hardly spit up at all. I was thinking maybe he was growing out of it. Until today ... he spit up constantly. Bummer! He still takes prevacid, and I'm guessing he'll need it for a while yet. Both girls took it until they were about 10 months old.
... is starting to drink a little water from a sippy cup! He's still working on it, but even just after a few days, he is doing quite well! He also likes baby mum mums. I love that he can be a little independent with the sippy cup and feeding himself mum mums!
... continues to be a great sleeper! He sleeps from about 7:30/8:00 PM until about 6:00/7:00 AM.
... continues to love daycare. He gets so excited when I drop him off. They have been letting him go to the mobile infant room for a little while each day, and he LOVES it. He's quite a bit younger than the other babies in there, but he is constantly on the move! The workers said that he gets so angry when they take him back to the infant room.
Happy 7 Months, Jaxon!
