7 Months {Justus}

December 28, 2012

The months are flying by, and Justus is now closer to his first birthday than he is to the day he was born. We celebrated 7 months just days before Christmas.

At 7 months, Justus is: 

  • 20 lbs., 2 oz., and 29 inches long
  • wearing 12 months clothes
  • still exclusively breastfed/not had any non-mommy-produced food yet
  • taking 2 to 3 naps/day
  • usually eats 1 to 3 times at night
  • sleeping with Mommy and Daddy at night and in our bed for naps
  • climbing and crawling a lot
  • generally a happy boy
  • very healthy–has not been sick yet (though, since I’m posting this a few days past his “month-day” he has since gotten his first cold, on Christmas Day, nonetheless–seems to be more of a reaction to the dry air in our house at nights)
  • often seen going around with his tongue hanging out of his mouth
  • loves to chew on my Camelbak water bottle spout
  • doesn’t seem to have separation anxiety yet
Learned:
  • how to splash in the bath
  • to go from crawling to sitting on his own
  • to play in a kneeling position

We’re so thankful for this little guy, and continue to pray that God will use him, specifically to show justice and shalom in our broken world.
