7 months

Carson and Avery turned 7 months old yesterday!
Their shirts say "Thing 1" and "Thing 2." So cute!!
At 7 months Carson and Avery:
-Can finally sit up on their own.
-Are on the move. Avery is getting very fast at crawling. Carson is army crawling all over the place.
-Have added pears, avacado, green beans, and carrots to their diet.
-LOVE the dogs. Especially Carson. They smile and laugh when the dogs walk by or try to lick them in the face.
-Have gotten very good at putting their paci's back into their mouths. Avery especially loves her paci. She often steals Carson's paci out of his mouth and puts it right into hers, it's really cute! Little paci thief!
-Love to play together. They roll around together and climb all over each other. It is so fun to watch them play.
Avery is a very active girl!! She doesn't sit still for long, especially now that she's crawling. She is so happy now that she is able to move around and get what she wants. Avery can push up onto her knees, which has helped her be able to empty out a few baskets I keep under the coffee table. She loves to empty out the bib basket. She pushes up on just about anything including her brother. She often uses Carson as leverage to pull herself over or push up. She has started pulling Carson's hair and grabbing his face. She plays a little rough. Avery is eating 4-6oz. five times a day and still 1-2 times at night.
Carson is my sweet boy! He is very tolerant of Avery's rough play, but does let her know when he's had enough. Carson is pushing up on his hands and feet like he wants to bear crawl. He'll push up and lunge foward onto his face, it's so cute. He is trying so hard to crawl, but his arms just keep getting in his way. He's getting pretty close to figuring it out, so I don't think it'll be too much longer. Then life around here is going to get really crazy!! Carson is eating 6oz five times a day and occasionally still getting up to eat once during the night. He sleeps through the night a lot more often now. Yay!! He still gets very excited when he sees his bottle and will grab it and put it into his mouth. He loves to eat!
Sweet babies! Happy 7 months!
