7 Months Old

Matty has made it to 7 months despite my bumbling efforts as a second time parent. I swear the differences in how you parent your second (and I can only imagine subsequent) child compared to your first is INSANE! I thought that I was relaxed with Everly, but compared to Matty, she lived in a bubble. With a rough and tumble sister like his, the boy has to learn to be tough! He started a new trick yesterday where he pushes himself backwards to a wall and then pushes up to get on all fours. It’s pretty fun. He still sleeps like a special ops officer on duty, nothing gets past him! He does not care for solid foods at all. Hmmm. Not sure what we are going to do about that one. He is a major, major fan of Toopee and Binoo (spelling?) though and has been known to laugh out loud to their antics- oh that darned cat and mouse team. He loves baths and he smiles as much as he frowns, which is a good thing and makes for great photos because he quickly changes from one to the next and it makes for some great candid photos…


Above is Everly at 7 months compared to Matty at 7 months. Evie weighed 18 pounds, 4 ounces and was 27 inches tall. Matty weighed in at 21 pounds, 4 ounces today and is 29 inches tall. He weighs what Everly did at one year old and is the same height as she was at 10 months. Everly was 9.5 months when she started to walk, and smaller in size than Matty is now, yet he looks too small to be walking. Funny how that works.
