John- 7 Months Old!

7 Month Stats: 
17 lbs. 1 oz.

Hard to believe our baby boy is 7 months old already!  Where is the time going?!  

John John scoots around on his tummy well and has perfected the army crawl.  He likes to do this planking thing which is what I think he thinks is going to really get him moving.  He gets on his hands and knees to crawl traditionally, but he doesn't crawls too much yet that way.  

He remains the happiest baby ever.  He cries when he's hungry and tired, and sleeps easy peasy for about 16 hours a day.  We absolutely love his dimpled smile and happy nature!

Sweet Child Of Mine...

Just some random photos from our winter....

John's First Solid Food!

Well, the six month mark means that John John got to try his first "real" food.  As Emilie explained to my mom the other day, "My mom makes John John smashed peas, and she makes ball peas for me and Marin."

John actually had his first rice cereal at about 5 1/2 months.  His doctor told us to go ahead and try it if he seemed interested, and boy did he ever.  He sits with us at the dinner table and would watch us eat with his mouth wide open and leaning in.  As I told Jason, it almost seemed cruel not to give him something, he clearly wanted to eat with us so badly.

He liked his cereal, but after he was six months I made him peas, and his LOVES those.  He gobbles them right up!  Next I'll try carrots and maybe sweet potatoes, zucchini or winter squash and then move to some fruit.
Not so sure about this cereal, Daddy.

John John- 6 Months Old!

6 Month Stats: 
15 lbs. 15 ounces (25th percentile)
26.5 inches long (50th percentile)

We can hardly believe that HALF A YEAR has passed since we welcomed our sweet little John John to the world!  He is the BEST baby.  He never cries.  He sleeps like a dream for 12 hours a night, and two naps a day.  He happily plays with this noggin stick rattle (a clear favorite- from Auntie Molly) on his play mat.  He babbles, says dadadadaddadada, sits up really well, army crawls, scoots backwards, and gets on all fours and rocks back and forth.  

We are all absolutely smitten with our John John!  He sticks his tongue out constantly.  It's so cute, but kind of a picture steeler.  :)  Life with this little guy is certainly fun!  We love watching him grow.  He watches everything his big sisters do!  The poor kid probably has the entire frozen soundtrack committed to his conscience.  Do you see therapy in his future?  Me too.  :)

Another baby!

Don't worry, it's not mine.  :)  My brother and sister-in-law are having a baby boy at the end of this month, and we are BEYOND excited!!  It's a boy, and he and John will be just 7 months apart!  I have no doubt that five-years-in-the-future-John rejoices for the diversion from his life in the all pink and glitter palace.  

We know Katy and Jake will be wonderful parents and my mom and I were so excited to throw Katy a shower to getting the spoiling off on the right foot!

Hooray for Grandmas!
