Hugh is 7 months

  • Date: April 12th, 2020
  • Height: 27.5 inches
  • Weight: 17lbs 8oz
  • Sleeping Pattern: I’ll be the first to admit that Hugh is not the best sleeper. He usually takes 3-4 thirty minute naps per day followed by 12 hours of sleep (broken into 2-3 hour chunks with nursings in between) at night. However, the last week of his 6th month, he was doing one 1-2 hour nap during the day. It was amazing! That only lasted for about a week, one really great week!
  • Eating Habits: So far Hugh has tried peas, broccoli, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, bananas, prunes, yogurt, yellow squash, pumpkin and peaches. He officially cannot stand the vegetables. If he eats vegetables without crying, it’s because he eats them with fruit. He eats 2-3 solid food meals per day, breast feeding after every wake up (morning, 3 naps, just before bed, 2-3 during the night) and one 8 ounce formula bottle before bed.
  • Development: He’s mastered jumping in the Johnny Jump Up. Hugh is also practicing sitting up with assistance. He also sits in the high chair to eat his solid food meals now.
  • Mischief: He is completely and utterly attached to Mama. If he sees me from across the room and isn’t in my arms he cries tears! Even if Logan is holding him while I’m busy using two hands doing something and he sees me, Hugh gets upset. Just for kicks and giggles, Logan has given him to me when he does this to see if he stops crying and it’s almost instantly that he will stop the tears. Haha!
  • Cuteness: He smiles and giggles when he jumps in the Johnny Jump Up when he sees us. It’s so cute!
  • Talking: No talking, but he’ll still say “ahh” sounds.
  • Favorites: He loves his pacifier. He basically has it in his mouth 24/7. He also loves this little baby deer stuffed animal that came off his pacifier when he was little. He loves sucking on it.
  • Firsts: Lots more firsts with different foods, but he definitely loves fruit and despises vegetables. I’m about to move him over to blending what we’re having to eat to help him try more flavors.
  • Concerns: He started getting his first tooth (bottom right) as soon as he turned 7 months old. This might be why he is sleeping so restlessly.
  • A Day in the Life: Hugh gets up around 6-7am for the day. He has his first breastmilk of the day. We almost always go for a walk at this point, so Hugh takes a 30 minute nap while I carry him. He stays awake for another 2-3 hours (has a solid food meal during this time) and takes his second nap around 11am. He wakes up 30 minutes later to nurse and has a second solid food meal an hour later. In total he’s up for another 2 hours before his third nap of the day. Thirty minutes later he’s up and nurses yet again. He plays with us outside and has a solid food meal while we have dinner. He stays awake until about 6:30pm when he gets a quick bath, nursing and formula bottle. During the night, he usually wakes up at 11pm and 3am, but sometimes also wakes around 1am before getting up around 6am to start again.
