Moose: 7 Months Photo Update



How Big?: He is still a big boy! He is over 18 pounds, and he has put on even more height this month. 
Clothing Size?: We are done with 9 month clothes! (He can still manage maybe a few things, but absolutely no 9 month onesies.) He is in all 12 or 18 month clothes.  Pants are really long on him, but the 9 month pants squeeze him too tight! 
What/When is he eating?: Moose is ready to eat off of our plates! He just needs a few more teeth for that! He loves to eat carrots and sweet potatoes.  
Sleep?: Because of some MAJOR developmental milestones, our awesome sleeper has had some trouble sleeping lately.  Poor dude has been teething, and he has been sick.  With a big confluence of things, momma and daddy are adjusting to getting up earlier and some nights in the middle of the night.   
Movement?: YES!!! This guy can CRAWL.... AND he can PULL UP to standing. 
Milestones?: OMG. Everything all at once! Seriously, he was not even sitting up a month ago. Now, this kid can sit up, pull up, crawl (like a pro), and a million other things.  He tried to crawl up the stairs... we need a baby gate. He almost has a top tooth. He had his first Halloween, and his first Thanksgiving! Sheesh. One month of crazy fun!!!! 
Hardest Moment(s) of the Month: First time being sick :(  I cannot even explain how tough it is to watch your baby be sick.  Pathetic, I tell you! 
Best Moment(s) of the Month: Oh so so so many! Watching Moose light up when he sees lights.  Watching him eat sweet potatoes right off my plate! Freaking out when Sam let him crawl up the stairs. 
Looking Forward to: CHRISTMAS! HOLY SMOKES FOLKS
Here's a photo recap of our last month:

Halloween with my tiny fireman! 

My little ham learned to pull himself up.



Watching your kiddo be sick is really tough. We took him to the doctor, so that we could be sure he was okay. 

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Daddy let him climb the stairs and almost gave me a heart attack. 

Daddy helped Moose top the tree. (It's good that daddy helped out because Moose might have eaten the star, otherwise.) 

We wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas! 


Lots of Love, 
The Rileys!
