7 months old!!

Sweet Whitt turned 7 months old on the 2nd of February. I know I say this all the time, but I CANNOT believe that my baby is already this old. He was just born!! He's huge!!

My little 6 lb 7 oz boy is now 17 lb 6 oz and 27 inches long (at his 6 month appointment), the exact same size that his big brother was at the same age. This is so amazing to me, especially because they look exactly alike and have such a special bond.
He is almost sitting (still needs a little help with the Boppy), has his two bottom teeth, and is still learning to eat baby food. I'm loving the Babycook that my parents gave us and have had lots of fun making all of his food, although Whitt would be happy without it. :) He has a few little gross motor delays that Grayson also had, so we are in the process of setting up some early intervention and occupational therapy. No biggie, although I do wish this stuff was easier for him.

Best of all, though, my screaming, crying, colicky boy has turned into such a happy little baby. As long as his belly is full and he has a mommy, daddy, or brother (we're working on the sister thing) nearby, he is happy, happy, happy!
He is FINALLY sleeping through the night (7pm to 7am) and napping on a schedule---one long morning nap, one long afternoon nap, and one short late afternoon nap. Hallelujah!! :)

Sweet Whitt is my little love and I honestly feel lost without him. We do pretty much everything together, and I am so happy that God blessed us with him. It's hard to believe that he'll be crawling, walking, and turning one before we know it! Happy 7 months, my darling boy!

What a sweet little boy! Hope to get to see him again soon!

He is absolutely adorable. He really is a twin to his big brother.

Could he be any cuter? You must spend the entire day kissing that sweet face. It's hard to believe that he's already 7 months old. I thought it flew by with two kids but it must really fly with three. What a complete God gift! :)
