Little man turned 7 months old last week and we celebrated with a trip to Grandma’s house! Month 7 has been a big one for Cade as he learned to do all kinds of new things! He is still sleeping like a champion at night and taking three naps a day. We are still struggling to take naps at daycare, but we are working on it. He loves to eat and has started to wave his arms up and down when he sees food coming his way. We are working with him on picking up food with his hands so hopefully we will get that skill soon. He is getting more and more mobile and is super busy when he is awake. He loves all things that he can put in his mouth and thinks that the basset hounds are hilarious. He still is just a joy to be around and is one of the happiest babies I know! As a family, we bought a house and we are excited to get settled in our new home where we will watch Cade grow into a little boy. More on the house to come later.
At 7 months, Cade’s favorite things are
Playing with the dogs
Daddy is still a favorite as it turns out. Cade is super happy all the time, but no one can make him laugh quite like Trey can.
Going to the grocery store – He loves to people watch. I think he is going to be social like his daddy.
At 7 months, Cade learned how to …
Sit up – He’s been working on this one slowly and is finally at the point where I will leave him sitting on the floor by himself without wondering if he is going to faceplant. This picture is from his official “I can sit up day” on October 9th.
Push to sit- Right after he learned to sit up, he figured out how to go from laying on his belly to sitting. This of course means that he know sits up in his crib when he doesn’t want to take a nap!
Scoot – He is never in the same place if I leave him in a room and then come back. So far, he has only learned to go backwards which typically means he backs himself up under furniture.
Rock – He’s rocking on his hands an knees like crazy! It won’t be long before he is crawling all over the place. He has figured out how to lunge himself forward for now which seems to satisfy his need to reach his toys.
Cade’s “first” activities for the month …
Swinging – I’m not sure why we waited so long to do this one. He was all smiles! So much so that we bought a swing to put up at our house.
Riding in the grocery cart – Another big hit!
Not pictured is Cade’s first tooth! He won’t let me get a good picture of it, but he had a bottom tooth poke it’s way through at 6.5 months and is working on his second one. Teething was a little rough, but for the most part, he handled it like a champ!
And now for some favorite pictures…
