2 years ago I was starting my first round of Clomid after almost a year of trying to get pregnant with no luck. 1 year ago I was celebrating with family and friends at my gender revel after finding out we were having a boy. Yesterday my sweet little boy turned 7 months old and I'm thanking my lucky stars for him!
At his 6 month checkup he was still a chunk - 95th percentile for height and weight. We stick with a traditional vaccination schedule so he had his shots and also a round of antibiotics - he's had 2 ear infections in the last 2 months thanks to a sister who brings home all the Kinder germs. I swear it's like those 5 year old's are kissing each other!
He can get tubes when he's 9 months so we will probably just go that route and save ourselves months of shoving medicine in his mouth. He's had a goopy eye since the day he was born, we at first thought it would go away, then we thought it was because he's had a cold, but it's looking like he's going to have to have his eye duct poked :( I'm worried that if we wait to see if it resolves on it's own when he's a year old that it will be super traumatic for him, better to do it now while he won't remember.

He wears a size 9-12 month clothing - I buy things and I think 'wow that looks huge no way it will fit him' and yep, it sure does. We are no longer cloth diapering, my family was actively working against me on it once he started formula, they would put him is disposables when I was at work and finally I just gave up, not worth the daily arguments. Super annoying, but sometimes you just have to pick your battles.

The best thing to happen in the last month was him holding his own bottle! It's so nice to be able to give him one while I make dinner, I just need a good 15 minutes hands free to get Madison fed and food going.
He already is a pro-selfie taker, check out that grin! Obviously we super love stripes, haha, almost every outfit! He has two teeth on the bottom that are razor sharp, his teething seems to have subsided a bit, we are still using an Amber teething necklace and I have to say I HIGHLY recommend. I was very skeptical, but I've seen the proof on my own kid - worth the 30 bucks.
We are slowly hitting the 'I only want Mommy' phase - he wants to be held more and fusses if I'm within eyesight. That's OK with me, I want to just kiss on the perfectly bald head any chance I get.
He's not crawling, but has been rocking on his knees so I know it's not long until he's mobile. Yikes, it's been a while since I've had to deal with a crawling baby - I'm going to have to baby proof all over again.
We stopped swaddling, but switched to the Zipadee-Zip which I absolutely love! It's a transition item to help babies still feel secure, but not be completely straight jacked once they start rolling over. I like it because he knows once he's zipped up it's bed time, it helps him sleep better. I just looked at the website and it looks like they are sold out after being on Shark Tank last week, glad I ordered months ago!
