Yoga Baby; 7 Months

Time is flyyyyying! I just posted his 6 month update, and now we're well on our way to 8!

Loves: (this category was formerly called "likes" but he mostly likes everything, so we're limiting it to his favorites) He LOVES standing up! Holy smokes. If he's sitting and you put your hands out for him, he grabs on and pulls himself to stand. I blame hubs for starting him at 2 months so now he thinks that when hands are out, it's time to stand. Anything related to standing, he loves.
He loves when we sing -  his favorite is the Winnie the Pooh exercise song. He loves when we babble with him "Dadadadadadadada" "Nananananana" "Babababa", etc.

Dislikes: Falling over from sitting and hitting his head on hard(ish) surfaces, but he so rarely falls over now. He still dislikes naps, but his newest dislike is when I leave the room. Luckily he can usually be distracted by other folks, but if I leave him alone, he is a very unhappy dude.

Sleeping? Still mostly great. I think some foods upset his tummy and he has rough nights every now and then, but in general he sleeps from about 8-630 every night. I wish he would sleep in later in the morning. Usually 630 is on the late end of the wake up spectrum, but naps are getting more regular, so I can't complain too much.

Accomplishments:  He pulls himself to standing in his crib and nuna.
No crawling yet, but he is starting to figure out forward movement. He uses his toes inch forward while he reaches for his toys.

Eating habits:
Still nurses 5-6 times a day and has solids twice a day. Most days it's closer to 5.
We've added quite a few foods to his repertoire. He's now had peanut butter, eggs, yogurt, blueberries, and broccoli.

Favorite Foods: peanut butter banana cereal is the beeeeeest. He pretty much loves everything though. Fruit mixed with oatmeal tastes like pie. He's really into that. He loves sweet potatoes and corn, and he's the only baby from our yoga group that likes avocado.

Last Wednesday, he weighed in at 18 lbs 4 oz. He's definitely slowed down gains-wise.

Still the same rise setting on the GroVias. We've been having some frustrating leak issues lately. So I'm playing with fit until we figure it out. 
We did a couple of days on sposies recently to get rid of a rash with aquaphor (not cloth friendly) and he's definitely in size 3s.
