7 months

What the _____?!?!?!

7 months?

I think this is the first time in oh I dunno Landon's ENTIRE life that I have said this month flew by and he was an absolute joy to be around.

I am not going to go all crunchy mom alert on you that is a post for another time. However I can say confidently that it is due to the Amber Teething Neckless. Again I will do a whole separate post on this but it does work 100%

Health: He had his first ear infection about 3 weeks ago. Poor bugger ran a 103.8 temp at 3am, if that doesnt make you run around like a frantic loony toon I am not sure what will. When we called the on-call service they said to just give him Tylenol and re-check it in 45 mins- thankfully it went down to 101 but we kept an eye on it closely.

Sleep: This is on and off still. He is going down between 6/7 sometimes 730pm (thank you daylight savings time). Some weeks he is completely knocked out until 1/130am and I just have to quick feed and he goes right back down until 6/615am. Other times he rolls to his back 3-4 times a night (which freaks him the F out) and starts screaming, eating the bumper, or throwing the blanket on and off his head- in which we have to go in and roll him back over to his stomach. I have no words for his sleep patterns and would like any advice on this flipping to the back situation. I could tie him down to the crib? Duck tape him? Velcro? 

Weight: No problems still- he is starting to stretch out in length but we might need to be upgrading to the "big boy" car seat soon

Likes: We are still loving the Cartoons. Also he is now sitting up in the bath and recently found out that if you smack the water it splashes everywhere so bath time is a fun activity. Grunting big time, like trying to poop grunting but he isnt actually pooping? Does that make sense? Its not the most pleasant sound but he enjoys it so it is what it is. 

We have finally after 7 long months figured each out. You smile, laugh, and our a pure joy to be around. Thank you for making this month easy on mommy. 

Happy 7 Months Baby


  1. Awww, so glad you fully enjoyed this month and it was easier on you! I love his monster hat :)

  2. Velco..this way he will detach easily from the crib...

    just sayin

  3. Ive been hearing so much about these teething necklaces.. will have to try them with next baby!

  4. You are soooooooo funny:

    1) I'm running and buying the teething necklace NOW- my son is teething and between him bitting the boob and being fussy I'm losing it

    2) about Landon's rolling to his back and freaking out -- L O L

    I'm glad you guys are getting to know each other much better!


  5. He really is growing up so ridiculously fast, Lace. Hopefully he figures out the sleep thing sooner than London did [or didn't ... since we still aren't there yet!]

    xo, ashley
