Austin // 7 Months


My baby is a vampire. He has cut 3 teeth in the past week: one bottom front tooth and the two front-side teeth on top... hence, he looks like a vampire. The other bottom front tooth should cut through any day now.

Teething has resulted in a slight sleep regression, but he never wakes up more than twice per night, and it's never for longer than 10~ minutes, thankfully.

Nothing to report in the movement department. He'd rather stay in one spot than try to inch around.

He doesn't like sitting on his own very much. He can do it, but doesn't want to. When I try to get him to practice sitting, he uses his legs to either stand up instead, or to strain against me until he's lying flat on the ground again. Lazy bum. Haha!

He doesn't mind being on his tummy anymore, though! He even sleeps on his tummy half the time these days. Bum in the air and everything.

He frantically scarfs down any food he can get his little fists on.

I can pop bits of what I'm eating (soft things like peas, tiny bits of fruit, egg, shredded cheese, etc) into his mouth and he'll enthusiastically gum them down.

He tried using a sippy cup for the first time a couple weeks back and mastered it within seconds.

He loves to be held upside down by his thighs, or to hang his head upside down off my lap.

Dancing around to Disney songs with me always puts a big grin on his face.

He gets dozens of kisses per day. With cheeks like that, I can't resist.

I love how he snuggles right into my chest when I take him up to his room for naps or bedtime. The moment I start closing the curtains, he pops his fingers in his mouth and tucks his head under my chin. He welcomes sleep; it's like he knows he'll feel much happier when he gets some rest.

He can't take his eyes off Doug when he gets home from work. He breaks into the biggest smiles when any of us lock eyes with him. He gets especially bouncy and happy when I've been away from him (even for the shortest time) and he sees me coming. If he keeps being this cute, I won't be able to deny him anything! My goodness!

We love this kid. In case you were wondering.
