It's hard to believe that it's been seven months. I'm fairly sure I start a lot of my baby updates like that, but it's true. The first six months were some of the hardest that we've ever experienced. Finnley didn't eat well, didn't keep food down, had bad eczema, and never slept. Ever.
I know we had it easier than so many others do, but it still seemed almost impossible on 3-4 hours sleep a night. When Finnley turned six months we started sleep training with the help of Good Night Sleep Site Halton (read about it here!) and it was a game changer for us.
Finnley has spent his seventh month being well rested, smiley and interactive. This month we are really seeing his personality. He wants to know how things work - watching his inquisitive mind take in the world is a real joy. And he's got an Irish temper like his Momma when things don't go his way.
I love watching him as he learns to sit, explore and discover how to do things, like making a game of playing with his soother and getting it in his mouth every time. I love that he knows his name and enjoys music, even if I am getting a little tired of the Little Baby Bum songs, he loves them!
I also know that he still has a witching hour. The hour before bedtime feels like another entire day as we try to keep him entertained and happy before bed. But overall this has been the best month to date and I can't wait to see what comes over the next few months as he starts to transition from little baby person into mobile toddler person. Crawling!
Any tips for what's to come, mommas? Any summer time fun tips?
I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
