Seven Months

Wyatt is seven months old! I can’t believe how big he’s getting.


We tried several more foods this month: carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, and peas. Wyatt is such a good eater – he eats everything we give him. I think he particularly likes sweet potatoes though.


He is so smart, and he’s laughing and smiling even this month, if that’s possible. His sense of humor is developing. He also definitely recognizes and prefers that Derek or I hold him now. He does alright with everyone he knows, but sometimes he’ll get afraid if a stranger is holding him and he doesn’t see Derek or me.

One day when we were packing for vacation, I picked Wyatt up for a minute, and then glanced down and noticed he was starting at the wall. Then he got this huge grin on his face. I realized he was staring and smiling at the picture of Derek and me on the wall! It was so cute.

He loves looking at himself in the mirror. He’ll just stare at himself, and then he’ll start to smile – then he’ll glance at me in the mirror and then back at himself, and sometimes he’ll get a huge grin and then hide his face in my shoulder! It makes me laugh every time.

Wyatt went on his first vacation this month, and he did great! I think he got a little overwhelmed at times at all the new places, but he was so smiley and happy most of the time.


He also went on his first plane ride, and he did wonderfully – we got a couple comments from other passengers saying they didn’t even realize he was on the plane (even though we couldn’t get him to sleep for very long).


He also met his aunt and uncle for the first time this month.




We had our first trip to the beach! He wasn’t a fan of the sun, but he liked it when I carried him and waded in the water.




When Wyatt gets excited about something, he’ll kick his little legs and smile. I haven't mentioned it before, but for several months he does this thing where he kicks his right leg up and down when he's bored - it's so funny! I think he originally started doing it to bounce in his bouncer, but he'll do it anytime now. We joke that he's practicing for future sports.

He’s also been “talking” a lot more in the last couple of weeks – he’s using his tongue to make noises, and I can tell he’s trying to figure it out. He says “momomomomom” now (emphasis on the m’s), but I don’t think he’s quite associated it with me yet. Sometimes he fake-coughs, just to get us to look at him, and then he’ll give us a big grin.

He’s getting cuter by the second.

My Sweet Wyatt,

You are growing so fast! I know I say that every month, but it’s true. I’m just soaking in all these sweet baby moments, because it won’t be long before you’ll be crawling and walking, and soon you won’t be my baby anymore.
It melts me every time you cry and I pick you up and you sniffle and lay your head on my shoulder.

I think it is the sweetest thing when you grab my hair with your baby fingers.

You make my heart smile when you laugh at all my silly jokes (I only do it to make you laugh, and you deliver), and our giggling fits brighten my day.

I don’t mind the slobber at all when you give me one of your wet kisses.

I love every minute of it, Sweet Boy, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Always,
Your Mama

He's so cute Callie!! I love how smiley he seems. And it looks like you got to relax a lot more at the beach than I've gotten to with Krew. He was too fidgety and anti-sun and anti-water for me to do much other than take care of him. I'm glad you had a good trip!

He's getting so big! I was just thinking that I hadn't read anything about Wyatt in a long time! I'd love to hear about how just day to day life is going for you!

This is so sweet Callie and I laugh every time I read your Wyatt updates because Donovan is so similar. The fake cough is hilarious to us. Every time D does it, Dustin and I both say "faker!" and Donovan will laugh. Wyatt is just precious. Love those pictures at the beach. Hope all is well. I feel so out of the loop since going back to work. I can barely keep up with my bloggy buds. :)

I love your beach pictures! We just got back from our first beach vacation and Liam wore the same little shark swimsuit and top!

I hope Liam does the fake cough thing you and Meghan are talking about soon bc it sounds adorable :)

It's hard to believe he's already 7 months! Time goes fast! A friend recently gave birth and seeing her tiny newborn was so surreal. I can't believe Eden was that size just 5 months ago!

Nicole said...
