7 Month Update

Yesterday Aaron was 7 months, 4 days old. That is the day that he was sitting on the floor with us, leaned over, put his hands on Jory's leg and pushed himself to a standing position. He then took one arm off, balanced himself and took the other arm off. He stood alone for several seconds. This was such a fun game that he has taken to doing it everywhere, on everything. He is very proud of himself!

Aaron is now a 'Cruiser' - he walks while holding onto the furniture for balance. He has also picked up a lot of speed with crawling and is getting harder and harder to keep up with.

He has taken to saying 'Mom' all the time. He has never said 'Ma Ma'. He says 'Mom'. He also says 'Da Da'. These 'words' are part of his constant babble. He is very talkative.

He is also very curious. It is amazing to watch him notice new things and have to figure them out. He has figured out how to open drawers and cabinets, too!

He is taking 'Big Boy' baths in the tub and he loves it! Such a fun time for him. Of course, now he's trying to pull to a standing position in the tub which makes Mama work extra hard.

Aaron is still an excellent eater. Since the last time I posted about food he's tried several new ones - corn, sweet potatoes and lima beans. He loves them all. Sweet potatoes, lima beans and butternut squash are his three favorite, in that order.

Aaron is now sleeping 12 hours a night - 6:30pm until 6:30am. He takes about 3 hours worth of naps during the day.

WOW!!!!Lots of firsts! I think it's cool he's saying mom instead of ma ma. What an individualist!

It sounds like he's going to keep you plenty active with super crawl and now his cruising moves.
Don't forget to try the brussel sprouts and beets while he's eating anything you give him!
He looks wonderful--healthy and happy---I would love to be able to reach through the screen and pick him up!

Love--OH mom/gma (I've been at the lake place, so couldn't check in before today).
