Owen is 7 months old today!

At 7 months, Owen:

* Is still 100% breastfed
* Has tried the following foods - rice cereal, oatmeal cereal, barley cereal, squash, sweet potatoes, peas, green beans, carrots, peaches, pears, bananas, applesauce, prunes, turkey, and beef
* Loves eating bananas in his mesh feeder
* Rolls everywhere to get where he needs to go
* Has made some rudimentary attempts at crawling
* Can sit unassisted for a minute or so, but has sat as long as five minutes
* Just cut his third tooth, and it looks like #4 won't be far behind
* Wears a size 3 diaper
* Is finally fitting into his 6-12 month clothes, but can still wear his 3-6 month stuff
* Wakes up once or twice a night, and is then up for the day at around 8:30
* Is starting to be able to put himself back to sleep if he wakes up
* Easily transfers objects between his hands
* Loves to watch the cats
* Loves to watch his Baby Einstein videos
* Loves to roll around on his bear mat
* Loves his activity center
* Can entertain himself for a while in his crib before demanding that we get him out
* Is very well-behaved in public (he always has been)
* Loves his daddy right now. He always get a huge smile on his face when he sees him
* Loves to make this funny clicking sound with his tongue, all the time
* Has starting making these moaning/sighing noises when he's on the boob, like he's trying to talk and eat at the same time
* Sticks out his tongue and makes fake puking noises
* Makes the following sounds - mama, dada, ba, hi, oh, yeah, ooh, doo, fa, juh, boo, aaay (like The Fonz)

And this morning, as a special present for me, he slept in until 11:15! I brought him in bed to eat, then he fell asleep and I put him down on my chest. He kept waking up off and on, but it was soooooo nice to sleep so late. And tomorrow is my day to sleep in too; maybe I won't tell Steve that he slept so late ;).

I hope this isn't a totally stupid question, but what does 100% breastfed mean if he's also eating foods? I always took that to mean all the baby eats is breast milk... am I wrong?

It means that his liquid diet is exclusively breastmilk, no formula :).

Ah, okay... So no water or juice or anything? When do you start those types of things?

I don't give him water or juice, but I think that it really only applies to breastmilk vs. formula, because they couldn't live on just water or juice along. I have given him water in a sippy cup to get him used to using one, and I'll wait a while on the juice.

I cannot believe he's 7 months. That's crazy. A post with no pictures? What the heck?

Too cute, I can't believe how quickly they grow and learn.

Love the fake puking noise....where does he get that I wonder??

Well I think it sounds like puking noises because his tongue is sticking out, and the formation of his mouth makes it sound like that.

Happy 7 months! And yay for sleeping in! Sonny friggin slept till 3 yesterday. After I left the mall, I put Tyler down for his nap then turned the baby monitor @ full volume and headed solo to the $2 theatre for the 2:40 showing of Into the Wild. I'm told Tyker awoke @ 4pm. Such a nice, relaxing afternoon. :)
