Jack Ryan...you are seven months old! I can hardly believe it!
So, other than grabbing your sign and not letting mom take your picture, what are you up to this month?
You wear mainly 9 month clothes, but some of your sleepers are 12 months.
You are now the proud owner of two teeth! The second just poked through! I guess you will have your two front teeth for Christmas!
You are still not completely able to sit on your own, but you are getting very close.
You have no interest in rolling from your back to your stomach. You hate being on your stomach, so why would you want to go onto it?
You love to watch Wheel of Fortune! It cracks mommy and daddy up! You get so excited when it comes on!
You have started to eat baby yogurt at breakfast and having a snack each afternoon. You really like yogurt melts and puffs.
You have had some tastes of "people food" lately. You have had mashed potatoes, sweet potato, a bite of hamburger, and french fries. We won't mention the little tastes of cool whip and pudding we have teased you with too. On Christmas you will get your first taste of turkey!
You are definitely starting to play with your toys more. You love anything that plays music or has lights.
You really like looking at the Christmas tree and all of the Christmas lights that are up right now!
You still go to sleep between 6:30PM and 7:00PM every night and sleep until at least 7:00AM. You happily stay in your crib and babble for another 15-25 minutes until we are ready to get you up.
You have now had two ear infections and are currently taking medicine to avoid a third...your right ear is nice and red...we are trying to avoid a Christmas trip to the ER, so the doctor went ahead and gave you an antibiotic.
You aren't sure what you think of naps. You typically take a nap in the morning (not that long after you get up) and then you eat your breakfast of either oatmeal or yogurt. You then sometimes decide you need another morning snooze after playing for a while. Other times, you stay awake until time for your afternoon nap.
I am pretty sure that your daddy is your favorite person right now.
When I go to pick you up from your crib in the morning, you give me this big grin and kind of yell a little. It's like you are saying good morning to me. Then, when I pick you up, you put your hands on either side of my face and just smile at me. It's like you are saying "well hello mommy, let me take a good look at you." It honestly is my favorite part of the day!
You are honestly a very good baby. You are mellow most of the time...you don't cry that often.
You are pretty spoiled by your grandparents and parents!
We can't wait to see you open presents on Christmas!
We love you very much!Apparently paper is very tasty!
You really wanted that sign...no matter where we put it!
