Ryan - 7.5 months

At 7.5 months old, Ryan's stats are:
20 lbs. 0 oz. (65th percentile)
29.75" long (98th percentile)
17.75" head circumference (64th percentile)

Ryan eats every 4 hours in the daytime and makes it through the night without feeding. It took about a month of trying, but Ryan is finally accepting foods besides breast milk. For 2 meals per day, we feed him about 1 oz of pears, apples, sweet potatoes, or rice cereal at the beginning of the meal, then finish him off with 6 - 6.5 ounces of breast milk.

Prune toes....

Out on a walk at Shoreline Park....

These two videos were taken last weekend. In the early evenings, Ryan is usually extra playful and giggly....

For over a month now, Ryan has been able to push himself into a true crawling position (supporting his upper body with hands, not elbows). But whenever he'd want to move, he'd drop down into a belly crawl. Finally last week, he started to do a real crawl. Now he does half belly crawl and half real crawl....
