Parker's 7 Month Update

Saturday, 5 March 2016

This month has been a big one for our beautiful boy! Yesterday he turned a whole 7 months old. Where the time has gone I do not know, but the amount he's learnt in that short time is amazing, and everyday I can't believe how lucky I am.

I last went to the weighing clinic when he was 28 weeks (he's now 30+4), and he was 17lbs 8oz. He's got the most gorgeous rolls and chins for days - I absolutely love the squidge they seem to get when they start eating but are not yet moving enough. He's still in a mixture of sizes, but I really need to take out his 3-6 month leggings, they're basically shorts on him and I feel terrible haha.


He's having 4/5 bottles during the day, although this will vary depending on how long he naps for and if he's feeling extra hungry one day. Food is still his favourite part of the day. He's loves nothing more than munching away on his meals, and gets very frustrated if you don't give it to him quick enough!

I want to say sleep is improving, but I really don't want to jinx anything. We've had nearly a week of waking just once for a bottle now, and that I think I can live with after months of waking every 2/3 hours... one night he didn't have milk until 5am - an actual miracle! We always try to pop his dummy in / rock him before trying milk. But honestly sometimes we'd just rather feed him as he goes back to sleep much quicker, and seems like he wants it too. He sleeps on his side now too, which is super cute.


We've had some huge milestones this month! Parker now sits very comfortably, and if you sit him down he'll sit there happily playing as long as he has toys in his reach. He can reach and lean forward and steady himself now too. After weeks of spinning in circles he can finally crawl forward! He's an army crawler just like his sister - I call him my little caterpillar because he looks so funny wriggling across the room. We also got our first word this month. I still can't believe he said dada first - so much for being a mummy's boy!


We're still no closer to teeth. We've had awful colds, lots of dribble and even a new trick where he sucks in his bottom lip, which I thought may have been linked to teeth. But nope... still waiting!

I cannot believe how grown up and big he looks now. He's developing and learning so quickly, and I know the next milestone is just around the corner. I'm so excited to watch him learn, but just wish he would slow down a bit. I don't think I'm ready for my baby to grow up just yet!

  4. He's so cute! He's only a couple of weeks older than Gabe and I love reading about what other babies are up to at the same sort of age. That's amazing that he's crawling already - Gabe is still at the spinning in circles stage! He is beating Parker on the teeth front though - he's got four already!! Can't wait to see what they're up to next month :) #whatmykiddid
