henry’s 7 months! (and 1 1/2 weeks now) i know i say this every month, but it goes by so fast and he learns so much. this past month henry perfected standing, including pulling up to stand and standing at one place and then switching to another nearby place. it’s his favorite thing to do. he would stand morning, noon and night if he could – and tries, with his new “i’m going to stand (and usually cry) instead of sleep” routine. he also started crinkling his nose when he smiles sometimes – heart melting. and let’s see…he also loves eating finger foods. so much that i think he’s getting tired of purees, which is not cool considering i made him a bunch of purees and i’m running out of ideas for soft finger foods. he eats a lots of bananas and sweet potatoes right now.
recently we’ve been practicing crawling. he’s getting there, slowly, i think. his new technique is with one leg up, which is one less up than his previous technique like a monkey. though with all his standing and walking around things, he could still walk before he crawls. so taking his picture is getting harder and harder – this one he tried to both crawl off the chair, and stand up on it. some outtakes:
here’s a month-by-month comparison. i love seeing not only how much he physically grows, but how much his hair grows too.
