Bennett's 7 Month Update


My baby is 7 months old!  The last month with Bennett has been my favorite time with him so far!  His giggles are unceasing and his dimples are so darling!  We celebrated Bennett's first 4th of July in Southampton, my favorite place on earth, and we are so lucky to be able to spend the rest of the week out here with my sister and brother-in-law and Bennett's cousins!  My heart has been exploding all week watching them play together on the beach!..

Bennett is an excellent eater and hasn't shown any signs of allergy to the solid foods he's tried so far!  We actually introduced peanut butter and eggs to him by direction of his pediatrician because newer research has shown that earlier exposure to foods that cause the most common food allergies decreases the likelihood of developing an allergy to those foods.  He LOVED the peanut butter but the eggs not so much (it was a texture thing).  (This probably goes without saying but please don't give these foods to your baby unless directed by their pediatrician!)  We got Bennett this Table Chair to use over the 4th of July weekend and later on when we go out to eat.   He's so petite that he often has trouble supporting himself in the standard restaurant highchairs.  This was such a great purchase and he loves sitting in his new chair!!

Bennett's favorite book by far is "The Little Blue Truck" .  We were so excited to recently find out that there's a 2nd book in the series called "Little Blue Truck Leads the Way" and had to pick it up.  It is so cute!!  Bennett loves turning the pages of these board books, and he is so fascinated by the illustrations.  Every little baby should have this series in their library :)

I had discussed in the 6 Month Update that I was on the hunt for a few new toys for Bennett; so we got him a  Little Einstein Discover & Play Piano.  It has 3 different sound modes so you don't have to listen to the same sounds over and over.  It has sounds ranging from classical music to animal noises.  It is so cute, and Bennett is obsessed with it!  We also bought him the tray for his Bumbo Floor Seat.  He loves to sit in his seat and play with his toys and snack on his puffs.

With the exception of this vacation, Bennett has been sleeping very well!  He usually sleeps through the night or wakes up once to nurse briefly.  We put him down at 9:15 PM and he usually wakes up at 7:00 AM.

Another big highlight is Bennett has 4 tiny little teeth coming in; 2 on top and 2 on bottom!  I can tell there are times when he's uncomfortable but generally he has been handling teething like a champ!  He loves gnawing on his teething necklace  or Sophie giraffe when his gums need to be soothed.
