7 Months Old!

7 Months Old!
Daddy's Mini Me
Rowan turned 7 months old on Sunday.  Crazy to think we're more than 1/2 way to his 1st birthday.  This time last year we were about ready to find out if we were having a boy or a girl.  Now we have a happy little boy living in our house that is FULL of personality. 

Rowan's still growing like he should.  He's passed the 16 pound mark...we think.  He seems like he's A LOT heavier.  Either that or I'm getting weaker...  Next official measurements will be at 9 months. 

He loves food!  He's had a few puffs now and does pretty well with them.  Since they're crunchy (at least until they get wet) he's not quite sure what to do with them.  His face is pretty comical when he starts chewing them.  He had his first allergic reaction to food too.  We're not sure if it's pears or the other brand of oatmeal we tried.  Who knew changing brands could cause allergic reactions?  We eliminated both of them from his diet and we'll try to reintroduce them over the next few weeks to see what caused the reaction.  It wasn't anything major, just a little rash around his mouth.  A third tooth just broke through on his upper gum.  That toothy smile just melts my heart.

I. Want. That. Paper.
Got it!
Rowan started to take his pacifier more regularly too.  He's pretty good at putting it in his mouth when he wants it.  He isn't dependent on it to go to sleep, but he'll actually suck on it for a while.  Here's hoping he only stays moderately attached so when we take it away for good it's not traumatizing for him (or us!). 

He's QUITE determined when he wants something too.  He's good at getting what he wants, even if it's 'far' away.  He hasn't quite figured out crawling yet, but he's good at rolling to where he wants to go.  He's up on his hands and knees quite a bit now, so I think crawling will happen soon-ish.  Until that happens, he's content to roll, scoot backwards, and put his head down on the ground once on his knees for a minute.  Silly little boy.

Sleeping so peacefully
He's still sleeping...a lot!  10ish hours per night is regular now.  My only complaint about that is now I no longer have a 5:30 alarm I have to wake up for.  Great on the weekends...bad during the week when I have to work. 

Other than that, we're loving seeing his different facial expressions.  He's so very expressive and happy.  We are laughing to much around him all the time.  He's really brightened our lives and we couldn't be more thankful for our sweet baby boy.

I love playing!

It's a duck!
