Judson - 7 months

Age: 7 months

Height: we don't go back until 9 months

Weight: we don't go back until 9 months

Milestones: Judson is sitting up unassisted, pulling up and trying to crawl, eating lots of baby food, babbling all the time, and such a funny little guy! He said "mama" the other day, which totally melted my heart! He's still in his infant carseat, but we'll be moving him to the convertible seat soon because he's almost too long for the infant one! Judd can pick up small objects with his fingers and gets very close to putting them in his mouth.

Sleep: Judd is still sleeping really good! He sleeps 7:30pm-7am, and most nights he doesn't wake up at all. He takes two naps- 9am and 1pm. Lately he's been taking a short afternoon nap, so he's been taking a third nap around 4-4:30pm. But overall- he's a fantastic sleeper!

Eating: I am still nursing Judd 3x/day PLUS we give him a bottle of pumped milk right before bed, and he gets 3x meals each day. He loves chewing on Puffs, and we'll be adding in some finger foods soon.

Clothes size: 9 and 12 months

Diaper size: size 3
Teeth: none yet!

Favorite toy: He still loves all of big brother's legos, hot wheels, balls, etc. We got out the activity table and he really loves standing at that!

Likes: big brother, eating, sleeping, being outside, the dogs

Dislikes: being overtired or hungry

Personality: Judd is still very easy-going, unless we're off schedule or he's hungry.

Best moment: We had a fun month! Father's Day at the stockyards, a trip out to the lake, lots of fun playdates and swimming!

Worst moment: Judd had an allergic reaction to something (doctor thinks it was contact dermatitis, meaning he touched something (like grass) and then touched his eye). It was really sad!

Looking forward to: Moving into our new house!!

Life Lately

As I was drafting up Judd's 7 month update, I realized I haven't posted since Judd's 6 month update! Yikes! We've been super busy and I just haven't even had a chance to stop and think! Here's a quick update on what's been going on! (I apologize for all the iPhone pictures)

We celebrated Father's Day with a super low-key weekend. We went to the Fort Worth stockyards with Josh's dad, watched the cattle drive, ate lunch and headed home.


We've had a few playdates with friends. Finger painting, library storytimes, and lots of swimming!

Judd had an allergic reaction to something (doctor thinks it was contact dermatitis, so he touched something (like grass) and then rubbed his eye). Poor guy! It broke my heart seeing him like this!

We started potty training with Jacob over the 4th of July weekend, and it honestly couldn't have gone any better. We're basically 1 week in and he's only had a handful of accidents. He hasn't gone poop in the potty yet (only in his undies), but I've read that's pretty common.

Judd celebrated his FIRST FOURTH by pulling up!! Crazy kid!

And of course, we had to take some pictures of these little firecrackers because they really do light up our lives! :)

In addition to just every day life, we purchased a new house! We've decided to keep our current house and rent it out, so we are now landlords! Kinda scary, but we definitely see the financial incentives too. 

We did a month lease-back to the sellers of our new house, so we don't actually move in until the end of July. Our first tenant moves in at the beginning of August, so we're approaching a SUPER BUSY few weeks! We've been crazy setting up new utilities, lining up painters, frantically trying to find a new school for Jacob closer to our new house, finding a new swim school for Jacob closer to our new house, etc., etc., etc.

I feel like my life is just one big unending to-do list! If anyone knows where I can buy a clone, let me know!! :)
