The LukeMonster is 7 months old!

(and his mommy is 4 days late posting about it)

The BabyMan is 7 months old now. Whew. That came out of nowhere. We have had a really busy summer and I can’t believe we are already in the middle of July. Luke is just still such a love. We are having a really good time getting to see more and more of his personality.

Some things we want to remember about Luke at 7 months:

  • He is still waking up every hour or two. Tired Mommy, tired Daddy. Luke is cool with it though 🙂
  • Luke has also decided that sleeping in general is for the weak and fights naps. He usually makes it until about 5pm and then wants to pass out for a few hours. That does not go over well. We’re working on it.
  • He sits like a rockstar. No falling over for this boy. Unless of course, he’s done sitting up, then he just s.l.o.w.l.y. tips over. It’s pretty cute.
  • If it were up to Luke (and it’s not), bottles would be a thing of the past. He doesn’t really like them anymore. Unless it’s night time, in which case he must have one.
  • The flip side of his loathing of bottles is that he is eating lots of solids. Lots. If you’ve seen him in person, you’ve noticed his thighs. They are courtesy of all the fruits and veggies you can eat! They are my favorite to squish.
  • We introduced a sippy cup last week and it went over really well. I figured it would take awhile for him to get that it was for drinking, but nope. He chewed on it, then drank 4 ounces of water. Duly noted Luke. We are thinking about putting his formula in them now.
  • The biggest news is that he has TWO teeth now. And I’m pretty sure he’s working on more. They are so cute, and very very sharp (just ask his Daddy)
  • He likes to chat. His favorite sound is ma-ma-ma-ma. I (of course) believe he’s saying Mama, and no one can tell me any different 🙂
  • He sucks in his bottom lip all the time and says mmmmmmmmm. He also sticks his tongue out over his teeth to feel them constantly.
  • We are still LOVING cloth diapers. They are really easy to use and oh so cute. He’s happier, since he’s rash free and we’re happier since we don’t have to buy diapers all the time. Win win.
  • Our poor baby still has a million nicknames. He’s probably never going to know what his actually name is 😉 Some of them include… BabyMan, Baby Skywalker, Little Dude, Luke The Destroyer, Luca-Luca-Monster, Lukie, Lukerton, Yuke,  LukeMonster, Luuuuuuuuuuccccccaaaaaaaaaaaaas, and my personal favorite, George. No kidding, George. My Grandma West calls him that. 🙂 Not because she doesn’t know his name, just because that’s what she calls babies. I think it’s funny and since she lives next door, he gets it a lot.
  • He loves nothing more than tearing up sheets of paper. And then flailing his arms wildly while he holds the shredded paper. My Dad started him on this and it’s pretty hilarious.
  • He’s still Lady Gaga’s number one fan. *sigh* I know people, I know. But he loves her and her Bad Romance.

Enjoy a couple more pictures of our boy. We are the luckiest people on earth to be his parents.

Look at the 2 teeth on the bottom!

Oh that smile!
