7 Months Old

The boys turned 7 months old on the 17th of this month. They are really starting to notice things. They both hold their hands up to both Jimmy and I to be picked up. They will whine when they want something and if you take something away they want they try to hang on to it and began to whine. Both roll over, back to front and front to back. Both are eating solids like champs, although if Karter is too hungry he will throw a fit in the highchair. He can be very impatient. To fix this I give him an ounce or two of formula before I feed him his solids and that does the trick. Neither one is sleeping through the night yet. Kolton will get up once anywhere from 2:00 to 4:00. Karter sometimes is once a night and sometimes twice. They go to bed anywhere from 6:00 to 7:00. Sometimes they take a bottle before they fall asleep and sometimes they don't. If they don't they usually will wake up anywhere from 9:00 to 11:00 for a bottle, or at least Karter does. Then he will wake up again at about 3 or 4. EVERY night Karter wakes up about 4:00 or 5:00 no matter what, he wants his binky and it usually falls out several times before he goes back to sleep.

Kolton can sit by himself for about 20 seconds before he falls over. Karter is still working on it. Both put weight on their legs and like to stand up. They also have began to interact with each other, holding their hands out and smiling and talking. I am really enjoying this age. We are getting just a little more sleep, and for the most part they are happy babies. Karter can get a little cranky and fussy sometimes, but it does not take much to make him smile.

Since the weather has been nice for two days now we have taken walks and they both seem to really enjoy them.

Kolton loves those glasses. He hates the sun in his eyes. I found these glasses that go with an outfit his Nanny got him, he never tried to take them off. Made the walk much more enjoyable for him. Karter needs a pair, I'm going to have to find some for him.
