Another month has flown by and Harry (I very rarely call him Harrison now, even though I wasn't keen on Harry to begin with) is now 7 months old. I have no idea where these last 7 months have gone but it has been the quickest and best of my life! This month I have noticed the most change in him, his personality and his characteristics. I feel that he looks so different recently, and is looking a lot more like Amelia in some photos. Every still says he looks a lot like myself too, which sometimes I see and sometimes I don't. He's really filling out and seems to be getting heavier by the day. I have no idea how much he weighs but I'm guessing at least 18lbs! He's now fitting into 6-9 month clothing and the tops fit fine, however the bottoms are always far too big so he does still wear 3-6 months sometimes.
This month we've had a few new milestones, he started sleeping through the night! I couldn't believe it as I hadn't been doing anything differently at all. He used to wake every 3-4 hours but for a 5 days in a row he slept all the way through! He has since woken a few times whether that be at midnight or 5am but he will always go straight back to sleep after being fed. I feel so relieved that he likes his sleep, compared to his big sister who co-sleep with us and then wouldn't sleep through the night until nearly two and a half! I think it's partially down to not breastfeeding as he isn't clingy and the fact that we used the SnuzPod for the first 5 months instead of co-sleeping in bed next to me. What ever it is, I'm thankful and couldn't be more happier!
Harry now has a third tooth coming through, I only happened to notice the other day when he was laughing as he doesn't make any fuss with them at all! He's still always such a happy content baby, and will sit and play on his own or with his sister. I love now that he's getting older and is more mobile they can play together, although Amelia thinks its funny to drag him around the living room by his legs which definitely isn't funny!
I can't believe that he'll be walking soon, if he's anything like his sister who started at 10 months god help me!
