levi {seven months}


Levi,

You are starting to overflow with personality. I think you are going to be a little spunky like your dad. You are always smiling and pretty content most of the time. Whenever we go out people are constantly stopping us because you are flashing them a big smile or to comment on what a big baby you are. We are loving getting to know you more and more each day.

Here is what you are up to at seven months:

You are eating all kinds of fruits and vegetables. You like pretty much everything we put in your mouth, except peas. You gagged and threw up all the peas the first time you tried them. I guess you were trying to tell me that they were gross. You like to eat and you eat a lot. After every bite you make a "Mmmmm" sound. And if we don't get the next bite to you fast enough you start to get mad. I don't think you are starving though because at your last appointment you weighed in at 22 pounds 5 ounces.

You are very sturdy sitting up now. You love to sit up in the living room with your basket of toys and play. You always gravitate towards rings and balls and everything goes in your mouth. If you are not playing with your toys you are in your walker. You LOVE to walk all over the house. You are fast and you have mastered backing up and turning around. I often trip over you because you are always at my feet or following me around. I love that.

You started clapping. You look at your big hands with such amazement as you clap them together. And you get so excited when we say "yeah" as you clap.

You are a great sleeper. You sleep 10-12 hours every night and I can't even remember the last time you woke up in the middle of the night. You sleep with your pacifier and blanket. You are starting to really like your pacifier all of a sudden. You can put it in your mouth all by yourself. You always put it in  sideways or upside down though. So funny.

Your baby blue eyes have turned totally brown now. I love your eyes. They sparkle and get so big when you are excited. I love that you have brown eyes just like your daddy.

Not only do you talk with your eyes, but you talk with your arms too. Your arms pump up and down--like you are flying--when you are really excited or really mad.

You love to be outside. You like being in your pool, walking and running with Mama in your stroller, or just hanging out around the yard. Unfortunately it has been crazy hot here, so we have been spending most of our time inside.

You like reading books now (phew!). No more hitting the books or closing them as soon as I start reading. We always read before your naps and before bed. I think your favorite book is But Not the Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton. I am so glad you like to read with me now!

Happy seven months Levi! I can't wait to see what you learn next...

What a beautiful way to keep track of all of Levi's milestones. I may have to start writing letters to my daughter like this.

I have to admit--I'd be one of those people to stop you and tell you what a beautiful little boy you have, especially if he gave me one of those sweet smiles!

Happy 7th month Levi!

I love but not the hippopotomus... It was my daughters favorite book. I really cannot read it much any more (she passsed away at 8 months old, about 4 months before your sweet Cora) but I wish I could read it to my son... I think he would love it too, becasue it is so cute, I just do not have it in me... some things are just hard, ya know?
OLevi is such a sweet, handsome little, or rather, big guy! Such a blessing!
Peace to you today dear sister...

You made my day! My baby came home to talk to us about proposing marriage to his girlfriend. It seems like yesterday that he was smiling at me with fat cheeks and brown eyes! Enjoy the time...it will go quickly.

What a sweet boy! So handsome. My 18-month old daughter weighs the same as him. I would agree that Levi is quite healthy...but SO perfect! :)

My son is 6 months old and makes the same Mmmm sound when he wants more to eat and I can't feed him fast enough either- must be a boy thing! Love seeing Levi grow, he is such a cute boy and always looks so happy!

I'm thrilled he's doing so beautifully...he is just as gorgeous as Cora was...what a miracle baby he is for you and I am so happy that he brings you such joy, you certainly deserve it. Let the fun continue...he makes you both just glow! Many more blessings upon you all!

He is just precious!

I have to say that he almost weighs as much as my 2 1/2 yr old. She's long and lean! And we LOVE Sandra Boynton books - But Not the Hippopotamus is one of her favorites....actually all the hippopotamus & piggy books!

Enjoy every bit of him at this age. It's truly one of my favorites.
