Colin- 7 Months Old!

Colin is 7 months old already. I have not been good at all about updating this blog since I have had him. Things are so busy all the time, so I am going to do my best from here on out and get caught up each month!
Posts will probably be out of order too. This is more of a note to myself here I guess! (this is last month's post, for JUNE.)

Colin is weighing around 18 lbs. 3 oz. and is in the 45%.  He is 28.5 inches long, 90%.  Our pediatrician said he has had a huge growth spurt since his last appointment. Long and lean babies we have...although he definitely has a bit of chub on he lets and under his chin that we loooove so much!  His head was 17.25 inches and in the 40th %.
Colin is wearing all 6 month clothing and 6-9 month pajamas fit him the best. He is still wearing size 3 diapers. As for shoes...we have rarely put him on him. Must be a 3rd kid thing! And it's summer...he doesn't need shoes. Haha!

He is moving all around now...mostly spinning in circles and pushing himself backward. 

He also just started eating baby food about 2-3 weeks ago and is loving it. The doctor actually told me that we are feeding him TOO much food and not enough formula which is why she thinks he is still waking up 2-3 times a night for big bottles but who knows!  He isn't on that great of a schedule. I feed him cereal and fruit in the morning, fruit and some veg at lunch and protein and veg at dinner, sometimes with some more cereal mixed in. He has several bottles throughout the day, ranging from 3-6 oz.  and then a few at night that are like 5-6 ounces. He hasn't really disliked anything yet except for green beans but I give them to him anyways with some fruit mixed in and he tolerates it! He has mostly eaten bananas, apples, pears, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots. Some chicken and beef. And the formula of course! 

He is going to bed around 7:30 and getting up around 6:30-7 am.  He takes 2-3 naps during the day that last anywhere from 45 min-2 hours. 

He is still fussy and spitting up A LOT. We give him zantac for it and it seems to help a bit. Anytime he gets mad he is crying right away. I guess we are sort of used to it now but he is getting a lot better!!  
Thankfully he does pretty well in the car and will go to sleep or play with toys.
He LOVES him pacis and we use the Mam brand.

Fun things we have done in the past month:
Went to Megan's house and played with the Kelly kids
Graydon's preschool program at Anchor Point
Celebrated Grandpa Bob's birthday, had dinner at Osaka and went to the White Caps game (Colin stayed at home with Grandma Jeanne and Nora)
Stayed at Grandma and Grandpa's house for Memorial Day
Went out to pizza place to have dinner with Paul, Naomi and Tucker. Colin was a champ and ate his food there great!
Church/church nursery
Did a great job going to the doctor with Mommy (mommy's doctor)
Played with Grandma Lyn at our house while Mommy and Daddy got to have a date night!
Jazz in the Park started downtown and Colin loved laying on the blanket, rolling and looking all around and playing with toys!
We traveled to the thumb and stayed with my grandparents for the weekend, and also went to my cousin Adam's open house.
