Missing You......

We miss you so much Leo....the house feels empty, we feel lost and we cannot do anything without thinking about how you were always involved in every aspect of our lives from eating meals to going to bed.  We hope you are enjoying the never ending treats, endless lakes to swim in and playing with all your friends in doggie heaven.  We love you!

7 Months

William celebrated his 7 month birthday on the 12th at Dulles Airport as we prepared to visit Brae and Brumps in Washington State :)  More on the trip coming up in the next post but lets just say that William did an AMAZING job for his first flight :)

Height/Weight - Guessing about 22 pounds and at least 29 inches long.
Eating - 5-6 oz of Formula about every 3-4 hours.  We are up to three meals a day.  Typically breakfast is some oatmeal cereal and a fruit (loves prunes, pears, mango, blueberries, peaches and banana's - although the only fruit he likes to eat (not pureed) is banana's and blueberries and he sometimes tolerates mango's.  Lunch is little as we are just starting to introduce and is usually leftover breakfast mixes (he really like the spinach/pear/pea and sweet potato/carrot/banana pouches.  Dinner is usually an orange veggie (his favorites - sweet potatoes, carrots, butternut squash) and a green veggie (green beans, peas, spinach - likes some days doesn't others) and some type of finger food.  We introduced noodles last night to help with him feeding himself and not always having fruit at dinner and he loves them.  We are going to try the meatball recipe that Ms. Ashley gave us tonight.
Sleep - I hate to write anything on here but lets just say that his sleep is pretty good.  For the most part he sleeps from 7:30-8:00 p.m. to 4:30 - 6:00 a.m.  We were a little screwed up with time in Washington state and are adjusting back but anymore than 6 hours makes for a happy momma most of the time.  He takes about 3 naps a day a morning nap for 1-2 hours, early afternoon for 1-1.5 hours and sometimes a catnap before dinner for 30 min- 1 hour.
Play - Will still loves anything that makes noise or sings.  He loves to reach for toys and laugh.  Loves trucks and legos and anything that will allow him to stand and play.  He loves to sit on the kitchen floor and play with the measuring spoons.  He has started to play peek-a-boo with blankets.  His favorite still remains anything he can bang that makes noise.  He LOVES to take my glasses off and have me put them back on.  Did I mention that he loves my cell phone as well....I couldn't hear people very well for a few days because of the drool he left in it :)  We now have TWO teeth....I cannot believe it so anything that can go in our mouth and can be chewed on is a big hit :)

Like -  Mickey Mouse, taking walks in his Bob stroller, playing on the floor, going from sitting to laying and rocking his body forward to get what he wants.  While he isn't crawling yet because he can't seem to figure out to move his hands, he is able to get around by scooting on his belly and using his legs to push himself forward....kinda like a modified army crawl.  He still loves to chew on things, especially cold things, loves his baths and swimming around, reading books, playing with/petting/grabbing leo, sitting outside watching daddy do yard work, eating, bouncing, playing with singing toys, loves skyping with people, loves to flirt with the ladies, rolling around, hitting boxes, eating puffs and teething biscuits and naps on Mommy and he loves when mommy holds him!

Dislikes - laying on his back when he wants to sit, being tired but not going to sleep, hasn't been a big fan of his changing pad on top of his dresser lately, when he is tired and cannot reach something.

He really is amazing and changes so much each day!  We just love him to pieces!!

Look at all that hair!!

And we are sitting and trying to stand.....

Still working on the crawling as we like to surf and kick our feet in the air instead but we are getting there :)  So proud of our little man! 

Again, sorry for the delay in posts but I've been busy spending as much time as I can with our little guy and am trying to see as many friends as possible before we leave for our Washington trip :)

The official 6 month stats a few weeks ago at the doctor:
20 lbs 4 oz
28 inches long
90th percentile all around so he is doing great!!  Happy and healthy baby boy!

We are starting to pick up food and put it in our mouth...although it takes awhile and we just grab everything and hope it makes it :)

Until next time, here are some picture updates :)
