Lighthearted and occasionally sarcastic sharing of my experiences with infertility, baby-raising after infertility and life after losing a parent.

I'm amazed that today Micah is 7 months old. Where has the time gone? I've always heard that time passes in the blink of an eye, but I did not truly understand that until I had Micah.
Micah really is growing by leaps and bounds. I think he is just over 16 lbs now. I cannot believe how well he is sitting and moving around - I fear crawling and cruising are just around the corner. My poor puppy - when he discovers how to crawl, I think he will spend all day long chasing her.
We just added in a third meal of solid foods each day. Micah loves to eat - he has been eating peas, carrots, zucchini, sweet potatoes, avocado, green beans, corn, squash, eggplant, apples, peaches, nectarines, pears, pineapple, strawberry, blueberry, banana, mango, and raspberry. We are about to start broccoli and prunes next (I've been terrified of the prunes - he is already a pooping machine!!). I made another round of baby food Sunday night, and did not burn anything!! Yes, that is actually a major accomplishment. This time, I made broccoli and sweet potatoes. I also have green beans and carrots, and I think we might be due for another batch of applesauce.
I think Micah has started clapping! It started at the beach - he would regularly bang 2 buckets together. On Sunday, he actually clapped his hands when he was excited. I'm not yet sure if he understands that he is clapping, but he is in the process of mastering this skill. I also learned that he recognizes us. If you say to him "where is mommy?" or "where is daddy?" he turns to the appropriate person and looks and smiles. He also recognizes the dog by name, too.
We are taking Micah for his 7 month photos on Friday - we will post the pictures as soon as we can! I will try and post some additional video later this week - we have some really cute shots of Micah at the beach (mostly eating sand).
Please join me in wishing Micah a very happy 7 month birthday!
