I remember being 7 months pregnant and thinking “Huh, 7 months hey? That took a while”. I felt like meeting my baby in 2 LONG months was soooo far away. Well, now he IS 7 months old and I feel like he should be just 3 weeks old at this point. I say this in every.single.post about him (and you’re probably sick of me repeating myself) but the days are not going by as slow as everyone said they would. time is a super fast airplane jet for me. Lol! Zoom!
Bebs is a tall (big?) boy. I know this because everyone keeps telling me this. For me, he’s still my sweet lil’ bubs, and I want to keep him little, for a little longer. I’ve almost gone through his entire wardrobe of clothing sizes because he’s outgrown them so quickly.
Every square inch of him owns me 💚. He’s everything dreams are made of and being his mama is theeee best feeling! My newest hobby: Finding outfits to match my baby. We were twinning (again) on our last day of Mama + Baby group (you self graduate when bebs is 6months+). We formed great friendships within these past few months with Mama’s who have babies the same age as @minikerms. Luckily we plan playdates all the time, so we’ll still continue to see everyone 🙌🏻.
This 6th month was a few more firsts! First set of teeth (lol), first high chair, first taste of puree foods (hasn’t met a food he hasn’t liked, yet!), first taste of peanut butter (well….peanuts mashed into a puree), and now he sits unassisted for a bit.
Raffi has been on repeat the last few months here at home. Finally I decided to do a bit of Googlin’ and find other kid-friendly artists to listen to. Here are a few faves:
- Elizabeth Mitchell
- Laurie Berkner
He surprisingly took his 6month needles like a champ. Not even noticing the first of three go into his leg. And as soon as he started wailing after the final needle, I scooped him up quick, and gave him a cuddle and rock and he was settled down!
My fantastic friend Nicole keeps giving us hand-me-downs and I absolutely LOVE it. This month baby got a “command center” as we like to call it (lol), since he’s sort of on the move (scooting around for a toy when he wants), this keeps him contained and also happy since there’s toys attached to it.
And finally, we had a few fun excursions with a baby and mama “dance” (workout) class. It was tough. I naively thought it was going to be a sing-along lightly dancing class. But it was a legitimate workout baby wearing class. I was soaked by the end of it BECAUSE I WORE A LONG SLEEVED SHIRT. Y tho.
Also had a first experience at a music class at the library. It was pretty fun! Going to hopefully sign up bebs for a little mama and me music class some day soon. That’s all we got for now, folks!
Thanks for sticking around all these months/weeks without me blogging as often as I used to. I’ll get into the swing of things again one day.
