7 months old! (+ a few days; sorry, pal)
It’s been a very busy start of the academic year, so we are way behind on posting! In the meantime, Walt has turned into a sitting up champ (not 100% yet, but longer and longer stretches every day!). And as of this weekend, we have a forward-motion crawler! He can get up on all fours and rock back and forth, but his forward crawling is sort of a diagonal army crawl. It won’t be long before he puts the two together, but he can get where he wants to get to (slowly) now.
Walt is still not a big fan of solids, so we are going to be more consistent in offering a meal or two daily this month to try and ease the MILK ALL THE TIME urge he still has. This month will also bring a real attempt at some cry-it-out, since he’s only had one 4-hour stretch of sleep in the last 3 months. Last night, for instance, I still saw every hour on the clock. This may have been some developmental leap disturbance, but we both need some longer swaths of sleep. *yawn.
Mr. Walter is the sweetest baby ever, though. He hardly ever pitches a fit, unless you’re taking the toy/whatever he’s interested away. ;) He loves Charlie and thinks he is hilarious. Everyone at daycare loves him, and all the little girls (~1 year old) in his room just dote on him all the time. They all say “HI WALL” when he comes in. :) He’s quite the flirt.
