BabyLum is 7 Months!

Our baby is 7 months old today! He randomly sleeps through the night. He's done it about 5 times, slept from 7:30-5. Some nights he will wake 5 or 6 times and then the next night he'll sleep only waking once. I can't figure him out and we have tried everything. I'm just going to accept it and move on. He will be a walking toddler before I know it so I'm not going to stress about it. Some days at work are really hard because I am so tired but he's worth it and I can sleep another day! I've learned to go to bed sooner and that helps a lot. I do think he is getting better though, but it's still really hard to tell with him. 

He still hasn't went back to the bottle since about 4 weeks ago.  He is, however, doing better with the sippy cup and the regular cup. We have started to give him more cereal and rice so we can add more breast milk in there for him to get during the day time and that seems to be working. I do hope once he masters the sippy cup I can give him some of the breast milk I have been freezing. He still loves to nurse though and nurses on demand when I'm around pretty much all the time. I can't even count how many times he nurses during the day. He gets so excited about nursing and it's just the sweetest thing.  He probably eats around 28oz of baby food per day. He LOVES to eat and will eat about anything you give him. Sometimes I can't feed him solids fast enough!

He's wearing size 3 diapers and some nine month clothes but mostly twelve month. The other night I got some PJ's out of Landon's drawer and put them on Liam and they fit. So yeah, that was my sign to go through the boys clothes and organize them. 

He still loves to jump.  He's learned to get a running start on the doorway jumper and make himself swing back.  It's so funny to watch..I need to get a video.  He's sitting up by himself.  He can hold himself up when he stands next to something for just a bit.  He can get up on his arms but won't bring his knees up yet to crawl.  He sure does try to kick those legs though and will rotate all over the floor and roll this way and that way. 
He has the cutest smile ever and loves his big brother.  Landon is really starting to interact with him more too...he calls him BabyLum!
