I have tons of photos and updates to put on here some time in the next week…but for now, let’s get you caught up on the monthly updates.


L and N are 7 months old! (5.5 months adjusted)

Food – Six 5 oz bottles per day. (Now drinking normal 20 calorie formula)

Accomplishments – Grasping!

Other – Wearing 6-9 or 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers. Sleeping habits are still roughly 11:00-5:30 or so. Wakes up during the night about half the time.


Weight – 12 lb 9 oz

Food – Goal of 6 4 oz bottles per day.  Still struggling with mucus issues so we’re using Pedialyte as well.

Accomplishments – More smiles, possibly responsive ones sometimes!

Likes – Cuddles, his pacifier, being talked to.

Other – Wearing 3-6 or 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers. He wakes up once per night most nights.  Sometimes he just wants to snuggle.

Moments I don’t want to forget (and need to provide photos of later)

  • Our first family walk!
  • Experimenting with tastes of cereal.
  • Seeing their hands discover textures, and become notably more active
  • Easter trip to KY and introducing them to so many loved ones.
  • Their first wagon ride!  🙂


And now…their 7 month photo shoot!
