7 months postpartum

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.

We ended up getting the Ikea highchair, picked up these Ikea bibs, and Ikea training cup (he doesn’t quite “get it” yet), and Ikea spoon set. Ikea, you sure are budget friendly!

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:

  • Raffi
  • 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.
