Seven Month Update

I know I say this all the time, but Pete is growing up way too quickly!  I really cannot believe that he is seven months old already.  Pete is so fun to be around and is such a happy little guy.  A cute elderly woman at the grocery store stopped me the other day and very politely asked if she could abduct my baby.  I said no, but of course thanked her for asking first.

Pete does not like to sit still.  Actually, he pretty much hates sitting in general.  He would much prefer to stand up and can bear a lot of weight on those little legs:


Pete laughs all the time, eats solid (baby) food, gets up on all fours and rocks his little bum, scoots himself on the floor (still backwards only) and has two little bottom teeth that poked through this weekend.  He still loves his books and music and is becoming quite a ham.  He seems to know when he’s funny and loves to mimic other people.  He entertains me all day and I just love him so much!

This picture is one of my favorites … he looks like such a little boy.  Where did our baby go?!  I can only imagine what’s in store for us this month but look forward to every minute of it.

Sweet Potato Pete

Pete tried solid foods for the first time a few weeks ago.  His first adventure into eating was with sweet potatoes.  The doctor had warned that he may only eat a few spoonfuls and not to be concerned.  Pete ate the whole jar.  He loved them:

Carrots, on the other hand, are not his favorite:

It is so fun to watch him try new things!  So far, oatmeal cereal, sweet potatoes, pears and apples are his favorite.  Bananas are suspect and winter squash and carrots don’t make the cut.  Next up are peas – probably my least favorite vegetable, but I’ll try not to pass my bias onto the little man!
