Oh, precious sleep... how I've missed thee

Success!!! Jax finally slept all the way through the night last night. It took 5 days, but he is officially used to being in his crib again. And not only did he sleep through the night, but he SLEPT through the night. He didn't make one peep. Which all you mommies out there know can be a bit unnerving when you're not expecting it. But once I checked on him and heard his sweet breath, I was so happy to realize that he did it! It also meant that I got a full night's sleep for the first time in a long time. Praise Jesus!

I can't believe my baby is so grown up already. I never posted 6 month updates, and now he's already well into 7 months. So here's what else is new with my little man...
  • He weighs 19lbs(ish)
  • He wears 6-9 month clothes
  • He is great at sitting up on his own
  • He has zero interest in crawling
  • He loves food and prefers something off our plates to his own pureed food
  • He loves Gerber puffs
  • He is good at standing with support
  • He loves bouncing around in his exersaucer
  • He sleeps stretched out on his back and doesn't move all night
  • He is doing well in the church nursery
  • He loves to give hugs and kisses
  • He is still a snuggle bug (as he has been since day 1)
  • He rocks my world :)


  1. I was going to ask how this was going for you two days ago but you beat me to the punch! I'm glad things are sliding back to normal, although I think the holidays always screw with everyone just a little bit!

  2. I am so glad to hear you're getting some rest too! And I am totally jealous that he is a snuggle bug. Jackson has to be very sleepy or sick to snuggle. Ha!

    Have a great week!
