7 Months/August Update

Bronson and counsin Emma

I know, Bronson is now pushing almost 8 months old and I am just getting around to updating all of you with his 7 month stats, but he is getting to be more of a handful everyday. Yes, this a good thing, but he no longer takes long naps and allows mommy the luxury of spending a little down time online. When is awake he loves to play and wants mommy to spend lots of time playing with him. Is this normal for a first child? Mommy and Daddy are his favorite friends and if he is having a good time he thinks they should be doing what he is doing too.

Here is some cute stuff to keep you up to date:

  • He weighs 14 pds, 10 ozs as of 2 weeks ago and then lost down to 14 pds, 2 ozs (He is about 14 1/2 now)

  • He is 23.5 inches long

  • He says mama and HIIIII!!! All of the time...

  • He is trying to get up on all fours and trying to sit up, we don't count it as sitting up until we see that he can do it without falling over for more than a minute...

  • He thinks that he can do more than he is capable of. You have to keep a close eye on him, because he now pushes your hands off of him. (He thinks he can stand all by himself, and please don't tell him otherwise)

  • He started cereal and then had to stop because of intolerance, we'll start again later

  • He is becoming Mr. Independent

  • He recently went on a visit to Sacred Heart and shocked lots of his nurses

  • He passed his final eye exam

  • He has spent the past couple of weeks scaring his mommy and daddy when he stopped eating a lost nearly a pound. We discovered that this all may be due to a tooth coming in. (The doctor's wouldn't trust mommy instincts that it was teething)

  • He plays with his toys all by himself

Well as I start to write this he is being Mr. Fussy himself, so I can't write too much, but I wanted to get a quick update out before he turned 8 months. As Bronson becomes more mobile I am not able to take as many pictures. I have been trying lately, but being his mommy is a full-time job with no down time. No complaints here, I am loving it. I just wish for less fussy time at night. Thankfully I have a wonderful husband that loves to help when he gets home from work. I hope that you all enjoy the new pictures.

Love from Amber
