Happy seven months to my handsome little man!
At seven months old Gio is weighing in at a whopping 19.5 pounds, just 6 pounds shy of what his 2 1/2 year old sister weighs!
He really is my big boy and he carries his weight well…. I love his chunky little thighs and hope they stick around for a while. 🙂
Gio is now sitting up unassisted, though I still tend to put the boppy behind him…. just in case! We have wood floors and I keep remembering the time when Isabella fell forward around this age and slammed her head on the floor. I felt terrible.
Gio is eating solids more often and regularly now. Probably not as many variations as my doctor would like to hear at this point – we are slowly introducing foods and I’m sort of doing a combination of baby led weaning as well as baking/steaming and mashing his food up. So far his favorites are sweet potato and banana. He’s become a little bit of a pro using his sippy cups and I now make sure to bring one with us whenever we are out and about.
Lets see, what else is new?? Oh yeah, we have two new teeth breaking through the gums! My poor little man is definitely feeling some discomfort though he is taking it much better than his older brother and sister did when they were teething. He is my tough little man!
Every month I try to decorate his BATZkids milestone blanket in an appropriate way. This month I focused on his older sisters collection of cars as well as his favorite teethers from Baby Bees and Peonies. Gio has been very interested on getting his big baby hands on Isabella’s cars. Luckily Isabella seems to understand that these are not suitable for babies and she does a pretty good job at redirecting him and handing him a teether to munch on instead.
These are a few of my favorite photos of Gio from the last month…
