7 Months Old

My handsome little guy is 7 months old today!  Each month we get to know a little more about Reuben’s personality and preferences.  Reuben is very happy and laid back, he doesn’t like to miss out on anything that is going on around him, and he loves different textures and soothes himself to sleep by scratching/rubbing the different textures around him.  This last month has been a big one for Reuben developmentally.  Here are some of the most exciting milestones:

  • Sitting up for extended periods of time.
  • Scooting or rolling across the floor to get a desired toy (or Daddy’s guitar).
  • 3rd haircut by Miss Liz.
  • Eating in his high chair.  His favorite foods so far are sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, and applesauce.  These are his favorite fruits and veggies because they’re the only ones he’s tried 🙂  I am very proud to say that he loves them all.  Reuben has mixed emotions about his cereal.  Some days he loves it and some days it makes him gag.  Oh well…I prefer that he love fruits/veggies over carbs!
  • Talking, talking, talking all the time.  Reuben’s preferred mode of communication is a very high-pitched scream/squeal.  He doesn’t use this when he’s sad, only when he’s happy.  I think it’s very cute; however, the businessman in the Sprint store we were in last week might disagree.
  • Loves to play Peek-a-Boo and cracks up with a good belly laugh when Mommy or Daddy pop up from a hidden place.
  • Cut his 1st tooth!  I noticed the tooth for the 1st time on Sunday.  It’s the left of his 2 front bottom teeth.
