Seven Months Old

Archie is a whole seven months now and there are so many fun things to report!

He is really crawling now, sometimes stink bug style, sometimes dragging one foot.
He can pull himself up on furniture and cruise a little.

He's got a little hair fixation, and laughs whenever he gets the quickest touch of my hair.

He will often bang toys around rather than just stuffing them in his mouth (although he still does that a lot too).
He "reads" books aloud to me when he can get them open.
His babbling has increased with occasional real words ("mama" and "ball") that I'm not sure he really understands yet.
He's still working on signing; nothing new but he's getting better at milk, diaper, eat, and more.
He also claps and waves bye-bye.

Maybe my favorite milestone this month: he can feed himself Cheerios and baby puffs.

My least favorite thing about Archie lately: he's really regressed in the length of his sleep stretches. He'll often wake up every 4 hours to eat, probably because he is growing so much.

Thankfully, we didn't have to take him to the doctor this month so there aren't any official stats to report but he got mistaken for a one year old just the other day and he fits most size 12 or 18 month clothes.

Showing off his new argyle socks.

He loves to play the piano...

... and peek-a-boo.

We love you Archie!
