7 months


Brecken is 7 months now! I thought 6 months sounds old but 7 months sounds so much older! He is now closer to being a year old than he is to being born... so crazy! Not much has changed since the last time I blogged. He is still moving and crawling everywhere and pulling himself up on everything and standing. Brecken still wears some 3 - 6 month clothes but is mostly wearing 6 - 12/ 6 - 9 month clothes. I don't think he has grown much in the last month, but he has certainly been learning new things. It is so much fun to see the new things he is discovering to do.

6 months old

     I am finally getting around to blogging his 6 month photos... now that he is almost 7 months old. I can't believe he is already half-a-year old! My baby is growing up! This 6 month marker has brought HUGE changes in the past couple weeks. He went in for his 6-month appointment a couple weeks ago and was 26.3 inches long and 16.4 pounds.
     At 5 months he started army crawling, then progressively got faster and now just two weeks ago, he has been crawling on his hands and knees. Breck still does a hybrid of army-crawling and normal crawling but he is FAST - it a matter of seconds he is getting into something like cords, paper, bags, remotes - you know, the things he isn't supposed to have.
    Just last week he started pulling himself up on things. If I thought it was hard to keep track of him when he was crawling everywhere, its even worse that he can pull up on things now! Breck also has two teeth through so that probably explains the moodiness and waking up multiple times per night. That has to hurt! Poor Baby!
    I've also tried to start feeding him some solids. We've been doing the rice cereal for a while, but he does not like that. I tried some veggies first - sweet potatoes and green beans but he didn't like either. He does like the fruit though - apples, peaches and pears. I'll have to go back to the veggies and make him learn to like them as well as cereal!
    There has been so many changes this month, but it is so fun to see him grow and discover new things. He is our little joy!
    

Obviously, it is getting harder to keep him in the chair for the pictures!!
