Binary Boy has grown so much in this past month, it’s hard to remember all the milestones he’s reached! Here’s a rundown:
Cut his first tooth – That was rough, on both of us. He’s had about a week of great naps during the day and sleeping through the night before his second tooth is starting to cut in. I’m hoping these two teeth are the worst of it, if only for his sake.
Started sitting up on his own – I am so, so proud of him for this one especially, because being the little independent boy that he is, he always wanted to be able to sit up from lying down on his own and now that he can, it’s such a relief for both of us!
Started “army” crawling – It’s a bit awkward to watch, but it gets him from point A to point B pretty quickly. Plus, now, he can army crawl his way over obstacles like pillows or even torsos!
Pulling himself up – This is still very early to report, I know, but it’s happening. I doubt it’ll go anywhere for several months, but he tries this on a regular basis if there’s furniture around to pull himself up on. He’s also tried it in his crib and we’ve turned around to see him in a very wobbly stand. Ahhh!
He’s still eating solids, though for several weeks now I’ve cut back the amount heavily after one of my readers brought up that maybe the solids were giving him gas. It worked and he’s not had any gas since. Now, though, he’s starting to want more than the tiny serving I’ve been providing. I think it’s safe to give it to him as he’s almost 7 months old.
We’ve also got the hang of running errands together during the day and he no longer fusses in his car seat unless he’s super tired. Speaking of car seats, we just purchased a new one to graduate from the infant seat and he loves it! I’ve been thinking about posting all the gear I use and giving my thoughts on it because I end up researching everything I purchase extensively, so I figure that someone else should benefit from that research and knowledge!
There’s more to say, but since he’ll be turning 7 months today, I’m just going to get this posted (d’oh!) and start working on the next post.
