7 months!

Well we are on the downhill to one year old!
Each month gets more and more fun and less stressful with Carson.

This month:
Carson has learned to give kisses. He will grab my face forcefully with both hands and lay one on me. One time he had been crying in his crib for a while and when I went in to pick him up he grabbed my face and smooched me. He is so sweet.

He is officially a tummy sleeper. As soon as we put him in his crib he rolls over and goes to sleep.

He is in size 6 and 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.

He eats breakfast, lunch, and dinner now!  Usually just puree fruits, oatmeal, and veggies.  I also let him have a bite of my food now and then.

Carson is sleeping wonderfully at night. Usually 8:00-7:30.

He takes 3 naps a day at 9:30, 1:00, and 4:00. His first nap has been around an hour and a half lately and his last two are between 30-45 minutes.

He loves being on his belly all day long. It's hard though because he spits up a lot so I can't put him on the ground for a while after he eats.

He can crawl in circles while he plays but has not figured out how to move forward.

Carson is sitting up really well but will still take a hard fall sometimes. I can't wait til I don't have to worry about it!

He went through a phase when he said babababa and mamamama all day long. After I taught him "mama" he would start screaming it all the time.  Not exactly what I had in mind.

Carson's favorite toy is his jumperoo. He seriously gets some massive air in that thing.

His second favorite toys are all of his books. He loves books and has fun grabbing them out of his book basket and trying to look at them.

Now enough of that. Here are some fun pictures from the month.

 These first few pictures are from our friend Stephanie.  She did an amazing job!  You can check her out at stephaniehydephotography.blogspot.com
