Emmett: 7 Months

Weight: 17 lbs 15 oz (41%)
Height: 27 in (38%)
Head Circumference: 18 in (97%)

Milestones: Emmett is now pushing up on all fours. I bet he'll start crawling pretty soon (I am SO not ready for that). He loves imitating sounds that we make, although he still hasn't figured out how to imitate "mama" or "dada". He sits for long periods of time now, and he only falls over whenever he is ready to roll around on the floor. He loves giving kisses and getting them.

Sleep: We were doing really well with sleep training (he only woke up once a night, and I was able to soothe him back to sleep without feeding him). And then the RSV happened, so we're starting at square one. DJ and I just got back from Mexico yesterday, so we were able to enjoy 3 nights of uninterrupted sleep (Thank you, Lord! Oh, and thank you grandparents. Haha!).

Favorite Things: Red is still this little boy's favorite color. He loves playing with colorful toys (and he likes eating them too). He could spend hours in his activity bouncer- he especially loves pushing the buttons that play different songs. Emmett also loves sitting in his high chair at dinner. We give him a few toys to play with while we eat, and he throws them on the ground and thinks it's the most hilarious thing.

Health: This last month was a little rough on our little buddy with RSV. It was not fun for anybody. He used a nebulizer, inhaler, antibiotics and steroids for two weeks. Thankfully, he's made a full recovery! Also, he's continuing to gain weight, which we're super thankful for!

Eating: Emmett eats two solid meals a day, is still breastfeeding, and we occasionally supplement with formula. He has now eaten sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, prunes, peas, green beans, and asparagus (and rice, of course). I think we're going to start introducing more fruits this month.

Here are a few pictures of him, since I don't think I post nearly enough. :)

First off, he is beautiful and I love his name each time I see it. Also, I was wondering if you were doing baby food or doing the baby led weaning?
