7 Months

Yep that's a mosquito on his face! We've had a wet summer.

Stats: Hayes didn't have a Dr appointment this month, so I tried measuring him at home. Haha that boy does not want to be held down, or stay still!

Milestones: Hayes is still doing an army crawl to get around, and man is he fast at it! He had a lot of firsts this month. He got his first tooth about June 24th. We call it his little fang. He should be getting another one anyday. He also started sitting up for long periods of time on his own around the 4th of July. He is so cute, you can sit him somewhere and give him some toys, and he will usually play for quite awhile. He also got his first cold on July 5th :( Luckily he is such a good boy, and he still slept through the night, even when he couldn't breath good. Thank goodness, because mama got the cold too! And the big one! That's right he now sleeps through the night EVERY night!

Feeding: That boy is a chow hound! He usually has 4 meals of solid foods a day. He also has a few bottles, and while he was sick we gave him some diluted apple juice to keep him hydrated. We have not found any food that he doesn't like. He had strawberries, raspberries, watermelon, pineapple, pork, chicken, tomato, Nilla wafers, Oreo(bad Papa haha) cottage cheese, and probably lots more that I can't remember right now.

Behavior: Hayes seemed to be more content for longer periods of time. He is getting into everything though. He loves anything with lights or a cord. He is very determined about what he wants. If he is playing with something he shouldn't, you can pick him up, put him the other room, and within a minute he is right back to the same spot.
Love, Love Love this picture!

Sleep: Oh glorious sleep! Since about 6 1/2 months Hayes has slept through the night every night. His naps seem to be getting more consistant too. Most of the time he takes two 1 1/2 hour - 2 hour naps. During the work week he is in bed between 7 and 7:30, and then sleeps until I get him up at 6. On the weekends, I try to get him to stay up till about 8:30 then he will sleep until 7:30 or 8!

Clothes: Hayes is still wearing anywhere from 9 months to a 2T. He is still in a size 4 diaper also.

Since I am a horrible blogger(really I shouldn't even be considered a blogger) I guess I should recap last month also.
Chris and his brothers Brian and Kevin and his nephew Tyler

Chris's brother Kevin came home for and visit and brought our little Hannah French fry hehehe. That same weekend 2 of our nephews had their graduation party. The actual graduation was 2 weeks before that. It was so good to get to spend time with Kevin and Hannah.
Ariana, Hannah, Grandma Mary and Hayes

For the 4th of July we just ended up staying home and having a BBQ. Hayes was jsut too little for the fireworks, so we didn't want to go anywhere that might scare him.

Hayes and Grandma Mary
Oh so the graduation party was June 30th which was also mine and Chris's 5 year anniversary. We had Ariana that weekend, and it was also my company picnic that day too, so we haven't celebrated our anniversary yet.

At my company picnic they had a raffle, and mine was the first number called! I won a Keurig!!! It is the Platinum one from Costco that is $150, haha happy anniversary to me!

I took some vacation time on July 5 and 6 so I thought I would have a nice long weekend. Summer weather had finally hit, and Hayes and I came down with horrible colds! So we never even left the house. Grrr

Oh one more quick story, we went strawberry picking, my mom, grandma, brother, Hayes and me. Hayes was in the stroller, and when we went to get the buckets, and the girl asked "does he want a little bucket?" I looked over at my brother thinking why would you want a small bucket, then it dawned on me she was talking about Hayes. I just laughed and told her he is only 6 months old. Her jaw dropped.

Anyway sorry this is so long.
