Dylan - 7 Months

This was a big month for Dylan! He is getting much better with baby food and has tried pears, sweet potatoes, peaches, bananas, squash, carrots, apples, green beans and peas so far. He's pretty particular about the temperature and does a gag-shutter-shake-sputter if it's not warm enough for him. After he gets a few bites in he usually gets with the program and can now plow through the whole jar in one sitting. He is just about sleeping through the night again too. Bedtime is around 6:15pm and there were a few days when he slept straight through until 7:00am. Usually he wakes up around 3:30, nurses and goes right back to sleep. He is now rolling like a champ in both directions, sitting unassisted (though he still tips over), scooting in circles and getting up on his hands and knees. He loves to put any toy in reach in his mouth and is a slobbery mess most of the time. He laughs and coos all the time and is starting to babble with B sounds too - super cute!

We took Dylan to a pediatric ophthalmologist this month to check out his blocked tear ducts. They used a probe to break up the blockages in both eyes but he healed too fast for the ducts to stay open. We re-probed them today but if they close back up again he'll have to have surgery to place a tube in his tear ducts. We're praying that the second time does the trick. 

All in all it was another great month with our amazing baby boy : )
