Collin & Carter: 7 Month Update

Where has the time gone!?  I feel like I seriously JUST updated about their 6 month stats!  How are my boys already 7 months - ALMOST 7.5 months old?  The changes they have been making these past few weeks is so much fun!  Maybe it's the season and experiences that come with it, but regardless - they are SO MUCH FUN!  I think Callie would agree to this :)

Seven Month Update

Food - They are officially eating us out of the house!  3 meals a day and a lot at that!  We are using the Gerber Baby Food (I have some made in our freezer, but haven't pulled them out yet...I'm not sure I would be able to keep up making it everyday for them...)  We have found they are drinking fewer bottles now because of all the food they are eating, so that is nice!

Sleep - Both boys are sleeping in their cribs...FINALLY!  Carter pretty much sleeps through most nights, so when it is your night to have Carter, you are in luck :)  Collin still wakes up, but lately he has been going back to sleep rather easily!  Whenever a new tooth is cutting, it's going to be a hellish night.  

Clothes - Both boys are in 9 month clothing...I know, I can't believe it either!  They are growing like weeds I tell you!


Weight - I'm going to make this really easy for you - both boys are weighing in at 17 pounds...they are the exact same weight!  Crazy!

Height - Both boys are 27 inches long as well...getting nice and tall :)

Diapers - Both boys are in size 3 diapers (I swear they are making this post very easy for me!).  Although Collin typically will have the massive blow out diapers...I swear, Callie NEVER did this.  Carter doesn't do this too often either, but it is a GUARANTEE that Collin will!  And it's GROSS!


Health - We have finally gotten everything under control and figured out.  Both boys have dealt with double ear infections, colds, teeth coming in, and bad coughs.  This has lead to many sleepless nights, restlessness and feeling uncomfortable.   I mean - if you are constantly dealing with a pain in your mouth and not feeling good, how would you sleep and feel all day?  Exactly - that's how my poor boys felt...and then it was two - so that's how Josh and I felt!  You know it's bad when people at work comment that I look tired :(
Both boys have their two bottom teeth, and Collin is cutting his top teeth...won't be long now!


Fun Facts - Where do I even begin!!!??  Collin is sitting independently, rolling ALL over, twisting in circles, going up on all fours and rocking, and has began scooting himself!  This little man will be crawling soon!  He is a HUGE eater, so happy and smiley and has the biggest, bluest eyes I have ever seen!  I fall in love with him every time I look at him :)
Carter still hasn't rolled from his back to his tummy, but we're not comparing, he'll do it on his own time.  He is so stiff that we've been working on getting him to sit up - which he is doing now!  Way better!  He can now sit independently and reaches for toys!  He is a talker!  He is constantly blabbering about something :)  He has this sweet "tuft" of hair in the front that makes him look like an old man...a hair cut may be in his near future :)  He has the deepest and silliest laugh!  He has these ticklish spots that get him going every time :)  He is so easy to fall in love with, especially when he gives you his sly smile :)






These boys are so much fun!  They are so much more playful now and laughing all the time!  They are very happy boys, go with the flow and entertain themselves (which I think is a HUGE skill to master).  I love when I hear them laughing out of nowhere, only to look over and see they are making each other laugh!  I can't imagine our lives without these two knuckleheads...they have brought so much joy into our lives...and Callie simply adores having brothers :)  There are times you can tell she misses the attention, but now that they are playing, she really enjoys playing along with them :)
