7 Months Old!!!

I can't believe that my little man is 7 months old already! He is getting so big so quickly. He cut his first 2 teeth at 5 months old. He figured out how to roll over (back to front) at 6 months, and now he is working on sitting up on his own and he is cutting another tooth on the top this time. He's such a big boy now.

He has been doing great with his hearing aid. We just had it adjusted last week. They started him out on a lower volume to help get him used to hearing sound. He went in for a 2 week check up and they wanted to wait another 2 weeks before adjusting the volume. They want to wait until he can sit on his own before making another adjustment. This way they can put him in the booth to test his hearing with it so that they can be more precise in the adjustments.

We've started on baby food. He's been eating it now for about a month. He's not a fan of green beans, they make him gag. He isn't a fan of peas either but at least he doesn't gag on them. His favorite is sweet potatoes and just about any fruit although he loves peaches. He's been doing very well with the baby food. He can be quite the piggy at times.

Last week Finlay was introduced to musicals. I took him with us to my niece's high school musical (Oliver). He did great for the first half, slept right through it. In the 2nd half Matt ended up taking him out b/c he was wanting to just be on the move (so like his brother there LOL). I figure they are never too young to introduce to the musical arts. He likes it when I sing to him, most of the time it will calm him down right away (also just like his brother). I don't know why they like it when I sing I'm a horrible singer! Guess they just take after their mommy and like music.
