Preston turned 7 months old on Sunday!
Sorry Preston :-).
He is almost over his little cold and has been sleeping TONS the past couple days making up for lost time.
Preston thinks baby food is ok (although I don't take the time to give it to him nearly enough), but what his hearts truly desires is real food. We've started giving him the little Gerber crunchies (I try to keep the kids gluten-free as long as possible until we can tell if they may possibly have Celiac, which gets very tricky when it comes to baby finger foods) and although he chokes on them, he loves them.
Preston is gaining confidence in his standing and is slowly figuring out how to get down. He still finds himself in predicaments quite often though and yells out for someone to come and rescue him.
He doesn't like it when Addie throws her fits - when she starts crying in her loud, dramatic fashion, he starts crying too.
Preston knows what he wants! He likes to be free exploring when he's awake and when he is hungry or tired he lets you know.
He is not a cuddly baby, much to my dismay, but he is happy and friendly and loves to be where the action is.
His current favorite things: remotes, real car keys, glass cups, cords, balls, the night light in his room, his pacifiers and his soft blankies...oh, and the ornaments on the tree, of course :-).

Months 2, 3, 4
Months 5, 6, 7
(it is definitely getting a little tricky to get him to sit by the bear :-)
He would much rather be trying to get the camera or climbing over the bear.

I love how you use the bear to track his growth. I can totally see him in a suit with a missionary tag standing by the bear to show his man size in comparison ;-)
