Daxton 7 Months

Dax is 7 Months old! I can't believe how fast time is going! He had quite the exciting month.He tried all different kinds of baby foods and FINALLY Sat Up on his own.Dax first foods we're Carrots,then Sweet Potatoes,then Squash,then Peas,Banannas. Those we're the first 5 he tried and boy do I have stories for each. So at Daxton's 6 month appt he told us that we can now start Dax on Baby food we we're SO excited! We obviously had no idea how Dax would react.Carrots we're his first and at first he didn't really know what was happening by the 3rd or 4th spoonful he was enjoying them. We had him on Carrots for 4 to 5 days just to ensure he wasn't allergic and then we moved to the next food of choice Sweet Potatoes. These we're by far his FAVORITE.He would sqeal kick coo babble and try grabbing the food. It was hillarious.Squash was next and he liked it not nearly as much as Sweet Potatoes but he ate it and was satisfed.Then there was Peas. First off the Peas in the container looked disgusting,smelled disgusting so I could only imagine how bad they taste.Dax instantly hated them. He would turn away gag and spit them out. I tried 3 times and the third time was the charm. He ate the entire container I was shocked. I tried for a 4th time and Dax was not having it so I said alright you can be done with these. Since he was such a trooper with Peas I decicded  to try Fruits next my all time favorite BanannasThey we're delicious.I loved them and even made John try them and he couldn't believe how good they we're.I would say these we're his 2nd Favorites.Dax still has 4 to 5 bottles a day at about 6 oz.He is such a little piggy too.He can hold his own bottle and he drink it within 3 Minutes. It's crazy he just goes to town.He sighs and coos and closes his eyes it's so cute to watch.I went back to work when Dax was 6 Months old. So John had to acclmate to working graveyards to staying home with Dax all day.It was definitley an adjustment and he misses me being a stay at home mom.He appreciates all that I do around the house and with Dax.Dax loves his sleep. He takes a morning nap for about 45 minutes a afternoon nap for 2 hours and sometimes a late afternoon nap.He usually falls asleep between 8 and 10 just depends on how tired he is. He sleeps 8 to 10 hours.Sometimes he will wake up in the middle of the night and want to be changed and fed and then he goes right back to sleep.He FINALLY Sat Up. He had tried it at 6 Months and would fall over within a few seconds.We knew it would happen eventually. I sat him up to take his Valentines Day pictures and he was sitting up like a Champ! Dax has the cutest personality.He loves anyone he comes in contact with.He is always smiling and babbling.He sqeals everytime he sees Mickey Mouse or his bottle.He loves his Tonka Truck and loves playing with it whether it is upside down or upright.He loves all the sounds it makes.He loves his Monkey and grabs the tail and also loves the sounds it makes.He is our little Monkey and rolls over all the time.In his crib, on his playmat and will be on one side of the room and make his way over to the opposite side.It is quite entertaining.He is well aware of who John and I are and cries when we leave the room.He loves cuddling and laughing.His laugh is very infectious.Dax loves Showers with his Daddy.Dax is a very contenHDt baby nothing really bothers him,definitley has John's demanor. Dax Finally has a Tooth coming in on the bottom left side.It hasn't cut through yet but I know it will very soon.Another fun exciting month for Dax.We love him so much and our so grateful he joined our eternal family.
