Wyatt Update


Stats
7.5 months old
Around 18 lbs - Still a little dude
2 bottom teeth
Size 4 diapers
Clothes size 6 or 9 month

Eating
We moved to three meals a day. This means we poop more times a day.  Hoping this is a temporary adjustment phase.
We are still nursing, maybe 5 to 6 times a day
Wyatt digs veggies
Fruits are just tolerable
No longer a vegetarian since sampling turkey
Working on foods with texture.  Had our first non pureed food, quinoa with grated zucchini and cumin.  He likes it aight but gags on it every other bite or so

Sleep
Two to three naps a day around an hour and a half. We are attempting to drop the third nap but this only happens when the first two naps were good and we go to bed earlier
Bedtime is from 7:30 PM to 6:00 AM. He usually wakes up once a night but this is getting closer and closer to all night.  I got a 5:00 AM wake up today.

Skillz
Being a perfect baby when we are out in public and saving his bad side for mommy
Pulling up on everything (stroller, toilet, couch, coffee table, crib, toys, mommy leg, daddy leg, any toy that gives him a boost)
Standing - the only way to play. I started putting his toys on couches and coffee tables so he can play while standing
Escaping at diaper time.  Little dude is fast! I have to have a new toy almost every time to keep him laying on his back.
Drinking from a straw. He figured it out on his first try
Staying on the magical blanket boundary when we sit outside
Smearing baby food into his eyes at every single meal. Hurts so good!

Dislikes
The post meal wipe down
Stroller rides. I think I just realized that the stroller isn't so bad.  I am usually putting him into the stroller when he is already grumpy.  The past few days have been happy stroller times.
Waking up from naps and bedtime.  Babies his age are supposed to wake up happy but he has missed this milestone.  He needs a minute or two of mommy time before he can put a smile on.
Monday night softball games.  Don't mess with my schedule Mom!
Church nursery 

Likes
Sitting outside and watching the wind blow the trees
Swinging in baby swings
Reading books
Leaving the house. I am not making this up. I think he gets bored at home too.
Pears.  He doesn't like many fruits, but this is the one!
Being in the Baby Ergo backpack
When Daddy comes home. He saves his biggest smiles for this moment.  I am a little jelly.
New toys. He gets so bored of the usuals.
FaceTiming / Skyping with aunties, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.  It puts him in a better mood.  I wish I knew if it was because of the shiny phone or the relatives. :) 
If you're happy and you know it clap your hands.  He hearts this song.
Pretend eating his hands, feet, back.  This is when you get the really good belly laughs.
Car seat....hurrah!
