7 Months

7 Months

1 Month

Georgie weighs 16 lbs 11 oz and is 26.5 inches long. Surprisingly he is in the 25th percentile for both weight and height. He seems huge to us! He is toothless. I hope he follows his sisters and waits until his first birthday.

George had a very difficult couple of weeks with screaming bloody murder most of his waking hours and rarely napping. But he appears to have turned a corner! Thank goodness. He did not seem ill but I took him for a check-up just in case. He was given a clean bill of health. Naturally, George turned on the charm and was a happy, bouncing, gerber baby. When the doctor asked about his night sleep habits and I told him he is great at night, he practically showed me the door and did not give me a bit of sympathy. The most challenging part is he is his most challenging in the evenings when the girls are home. We are all working together on the Little Buddy management and this too will pass.

George has taken to solid food. He did not care for avocado on the first attempt. So we moved on to green beans, apples, pears and brown rice. We tried avocado again and he gobbled it up. He usually eats a fruit for lunch and rice with veg or fruit for dinner. Next on the menu: butternut squash and zucchini or courgette. He nurses 5-6 times a day.

George has demanded to be in arms (my aching neck proves it) and has not had much play time on the floor, so little change in physical development. We want him to progress but staying put is nice too. He likes to read books. He LOVES his jumper to get his energy out. He started giving kisses. He refuses to let the girls hold him. But he loves them and when they walk into the room stares at them until they acknowledge him. He can sit up for short periods of time and play with a basket of toys. Time is starting to fly by and he is closer to 12 months than newborn!
