7 Months!!

Krew Arthur
7 months

Height and Weight: Basing this off of his 6 month well check 3 weeks ago, I would say he is somewhere between 17-19 pds. Probably 27 inches or so! He is such a chunky monkey to us because of his low birth size when he was born! It's too yummy!

Health: I wake up every single day thanking God for blessing me with a healthy happy baby. I cannot even fathom the thought of something happening to him. He is also getting in his 2 bottom teeth! You can see the right one is gonna bust through any dang day!

Sleep: He is an amazing sleeper! He goes down around 8:30 and wakes around 6:30. Lately he has been waking up hungry around 3:00 AM. That's okay, I put him back in bed with us after I fed him this morning. It was pure bliss. We snuggled and he woke up in the best mood!

Diet: Dude loves groceries! He is still going strong on Earths Best formula and solids. Some of his favorites are apples, sweet potatoes, and carrots. I need to start venturing into more "mature" foods!

Clothes: KMoney is wearing 9-12 month clothes! It is so sad. We made a trip to BabyGap to pick him up some cute Summer outfits! I love shopping for him way more than I like shopping for myself.
Baby Gear Love: Currently he is obsessed with the new tree swing we bought him. He cries when we take him out. It is kinda pathetic. He just sits in there and grins from ear to ear while we push him. I sit and wonder if he gets that funny feeling in his little baby belly!

Crying: He NEVER cries. I don't know how I got so lucky! Of course he cries if he needs something but that is seriously it!
Likes: His tree swing and his new swimming pool. His puppies, and his dada, and of course his Grandpa.

Postpartum:  I think I had a little set back this week. I took a 1/2 hour long hardcore abs class with my bestie this past week and can I just say I think I messed something up in my stomach! My itch to get back into shape has been taken to the extreme and I am paying for it!
Social: My little man is quite the chatterbox. He squeels with excitement and LOVES to hear his own voice. He is getting to be so fun. He follows me with his eyes everywhere and when I come home from work he is like a kid on Christmas! I love it so much!

Milestones: He is starting to crawl backwards! It's so funny to leave him in once place and to watch him and see where he ends up! He is so good with his eye/hand coordination too!

Hey dude,
I can't even begin to tell you how fun this stage with you is. You are so curious and such a little charmer. You smile at me when I get home from work and my heart burst into a million pieces! I love you so very much. You will never understand this love until you have a child of your own. It's weird for me to think Grandma loves me this much. Thank you for choosing me to be your mom and for being so understanding to me while I am venturing through this new mom thing. You seriously rock my world kiddo!

Love ya,

6 months!

Height and Weight:
Krew is weighing in at 16.15 pds and is 26.0 inches long! He has tripled his birth weight and the doctor is so happy with his progress! He is in the 50th percentile for weight and high 40s for his height! If you ask me he is a perfect little bundle of boyness!

Health: KDog is doing so GREAT in his department!! I am strictly feeding him organic formula and solids. This kid loves his groceries! He has a bit of eczema which totally sucks and drives me crazy! His stuffy sinuses have cleared up a ton!

Sleep: He is an awesome sleeper! We have a pretty good schedule set into place. He can sleep just about anywhere which is so nice! I owe that to me working and my awesome babysitters, it's easy to take him out of town because he still sleeps when scheduled! He goes down around 8:30 and wakes around 7:00. Sometimes on the weekends when the house is silent we can get an extra half hour out of him!

Diet: Like I said before kid loves his groc! He is eating 6-7 oz of organic formula every 3 hours. If is in dire need of a nap he will sometimes skip a feeding. We are loving Earth's Best solids for him! He is doing awesome with a spoon, this transition went a lot smoother than I had expected.

Clothes: I don't want to talk about it.
Seriously this subject is so hard for me. It makes me realize how big my baby is. He he wearing 9 month clothes. I am sure by the end of Summer he will be in 12 month. Some of my favorite places to shop are Target, Baby Gap, and H&M!

Baby Gear Love: He loves his bouncer and I feel like it has helped him learn to sit up unassisted a lot more. Also, Grandma bought him Scout the digital dog that you can hook to your computer to say their name and he LOVES it! He pretty much is down for whatever he can stick into his mouth!
Crying: Honestly, I am so so lucky. He only cries if he is hungry, too tired, or gets hurt of course.
Likes: Okay, my child is so happy sometimes I think he is going to explode. He like everything! He LOVES his Grandpa and dogs, baths, walks, standing up, apple slices, apple juice, my cell phone, I'm telling you there is not much he doesn't like.

Postpartum: I am doing GREAT! Finally into the swing of being a full time working mama, and raising my son the way he deserves! I have about 5 pds left to lose but I am working hard!

Social: Krew is so social lately. Especially in the morning, he is just so full of life! He coos, screams, and jibber jabers to everyone! I love it!

Milestones: He is getting really good at sitting unassisted, he now rolls from back to tummy, tummy to back, he loves to eat solid foods, and LOVES to stand up, he is getting really good at standing while holding onto something too!

Dear Krewzer/Max,
My first Mothers Day is coming up. I can't wait, you make this day have so much more meaning. Last year I celebrated a little bit because you were in my tummy. Mama can't even wait to celebrate this day with you in the world, in my arms. My little bug I love you so much I worry about you constantly every single decision I make everyday has to do with you. You are always in the back of my mind. Please know that I don't like to leave you everyday but in order to give you the life that mom had I have to work. I want you to have everything and more. I can't wait to see what the next 6 months has to offer us. I know it will be full of adventure, tears, happiness, and laughs just like the last 6 have been. My love for you is everlasting and grows more and more every single day. You are the most perfect being I have ever laid eyes on. I love you to the moon and back.

P.S. Never grow up.
