7 months

This precious boy turned 7 months on the 9th. He gave us quite the scare this week. Long story short, he quickly lost all color and became extremely lethargic after spitting/throwing up, Tuesday afternoon. I called his pediatrician's office and they told me to hang up and call 911. Adam met our ambulance at the ER and Collins had lots of tests done, but he looks perfect. Praise the LORD!! 

He has a cold now, but he was willing to smile for his 7 month pictures anyway!

  • He's wearing size 9 months clothes and size 3 diaper. He's 16lbs, 8oz.

  • He's just started saying "Dada" and it makes my heart melt. I LOVE IT!! It's so cute...he's babbling a lot too.

  • He says "Hey". He'll say it to us and the other day while we were at the store, I heard him say it and I looked behind us to find someone smiling and waving to him. He did it again five minutes later and there was someone else smiling and waving to him! :) 

  • He's getting up on all fours and rocking.

  • I still nurse four times a day and he gets a bottle of formula at night around 6pm.

  • He's eating a jar of baby food for lunch and a jar for dinner. His favorites are sweet potatoes, squash, apples, peas, well...really everything!! :) I'm just now starting to break off little bits of food and letting him try. 

  • He's sitting up perfectly now and I love being able to put him down so he can play. He sits in the restaurant high chair and in the shopping cart.

  • He still adores his brother and I'm willing to bet Camper is his favorite person...after his Mama, of course! :)

  • He smiles all the time and is still such a happy baby...WE LOVE OUR COLLINSY BOY!!!

Camper was on the floor and Collins was trying to find him...it's extremely difficult to keep Camp out of these pictures. :)

This is his flirty smile...LOVE IT!

Happy 7 months, Collins!

I can't believe our big boy is 7 months old!
Love the flirty smile...
Kids manage to freak their parents out at times. Don't worry, that will stop, no mother said!
Happy 7 months, Collins!

Toby told me about poor little Collins episode. I'm so sorry you had to go through that, I'm sure it was aweful. Glad he bounced back so well and is doing great. He is truly adorable!!!
