7 Month Break Down...


Cole Richard

aka: Coley, Cole Dog, Chunk, Frank the Tank, Loud-Mouth Larry, Butterball, Bubba

highlights:
  • 20 lbs. 15 oz. (total weight gain so far = 15 lbs. 12 oz.)
  • Can (but rarely) roll both back to belly and belly to back...always toward food!
  • Sleeps through the night (8p-6a)
  • Drools through 2-3 bibs a day...but not a single tooth in sight.
big fan: food, the Johnny Jumper, the ExerSaucer, splashing during baths, grabbing at things and holding on for dear life

not so much: watching anyone eat when he's hungry, getting his face wiped, shots, swings, cold bottles (which is ironic, since you'd think he'd just be glad to have food)

Eli Robert

aka: E, E Dog, Medium

highlights:
  • 15 lbs. 9 oz. (total weight gain so far = 11 lbs. 5 oz.)
  • Rolls...both ways
  • Sleeps...a lot...and wakes up quietly & just lays in his crib (what a joy)
big fan: his thumb, his other thumb, smiling, kicking during baths, touching people (like resting his hand on your cheek while you're sitting with him on you lap), sleeping (anywhere and everywhere at anytime)

not so much: Ummm...I can't think of anything. He's really an easy-going, low-maintenance baby.

Ava Barbara

aka: Ava B, Barbara, Barb, Beanie, Babs, High Maintenance, Princess, Peanut

highlights:
  • 14 lbs. 2 oz. (total weight gain so far = 9 lbs. 13 oz.)
  • CHAMPION roller
  • Days away from crawling (if she could just get her forehead off the carpet)
  • Another big drooler...and also no tooth prospects to speak of
big fan: attention, rolling around on the floor, trying to crawl, being tickled

not so much: being awake and alone in a room, getting her nose wiped, sitting in a stinky diaper for ANY period of time, not being addressed when she begins "speaking"

I want to play with all of them! I have never actually held any of them. Doesn't that make you sad? Can I come over and hang with the trips???

That IS sad, Alexa! You DEFINITELY get one next time we see you. Come over whenever you want. We're usually around.

Too cute! 20 lbs at 7 months!!! Wow!! I have one that still doesn't weigh 20 lbs and she's 15 months!! I think we need some feeding tips :)

They all look adorable and healthy. Congrats on 7 months. It's almost to the easy part. Hee hee - I don't even think I'm there yet. But at least it's easier then it used to be...

AMY! I can't believe that they're SEVEN months already. They are so adorable, and I'm continually amazed at how perfectly God formed all 3 of them--together, all at the same time, inside of your belly. :-)

The babies are beautiful and getting so big! Isn't it hard to believe all the new things they are doing...(sitting up, rolling both ways..etc.) The time is definitely flying for me!

You babies are beautiful! I love their smiles.
