Eliot at Seven Months
7 months. Your goo goo’s and ga ga’s are way more prominent these days. You’re easy going but super sensitive—you’ll cry when something’s taken away but super easy to console…the complaints don’t last long. You’re super curious and have just discovered your hands! You’re also fully sitting on your own now, squiggle around while on your belly, but not quite on the move just yet. Next month, I think we’ll have a little bit of a crawler on our hands. Big step: you’re fully sleep trained! I waited to do it because I wanted to keep you in our bed a little longer—I would have kept you in our bed a whole year, really, but the nightly feedings were taking its toll. Training took only about 4 days, but we’re finally getting that full night’s rest we all need. You’re still all about me—you prefer to be carried close in the Ergo than strolled around. Despite the little bit of back ache I get from doing it, I love having you close. You’ll soon be too big to carry, and having watched Margot grow so quickly, I’m taking full advantage of your baby hood while I’ve got you like this.
