7 months

Seven months, baby!

Jude is a great little guy. He has found his voice and loves to squeal. It's sort of deafening. Man, we can't take that kid anywhere without getting a few looks. But he's so happy and cute, what's not to love about that?

Mr. Jude isn't crawling and doesn't have any teeth yet, but I swear it's going to happen any day now. And yes, I've been saying that for about 4 weeks...but seriously, it's going to happen SOON.

This month marked my return to work, and I think we've all adjusted relatively well. He has been napping very well these past few weeks (knock on wood), but not sleeping so great at night. Some nights he only wakes up once to nurse, and I get so excited thinking that he's ready to start sleeping through the night. And then we have nights like last night, when he wakes up every few hours or so. It's a good thing he's so handsome.

Jude eats whatever we put in front of him, and he now weighs more than Delaney did at her first birthday. We think that he's monstrous in size, but really he's only in the 30th percentile in weight. Apparently there are some very fat babies out there throwing the curve. Jude's height is still above average at the 75th percentile mark. Again, not what we're expecting, but we'll take it.

We love this guy, and Delaney is a big fan of her Brother Boy. Life is good.

This picture sort of freaks me out--Jude looks a bit maniacal.

Weight: 17 lbs. 6 oz (30th percentile)
Height: 27 3/4 inches (75th percentile)
