7 months

I think the reason I am putting up monthly pictures of Luke is because it forces me to take a monthly picture of him and I am able to document what month each picture is from.

With that said, here is 7 months.

I know, it's a little blurry.... I'm still working on that!

Here is what I have learned with Luke in the past 7 months.

 It will work out!

For some reason "the books" make parents feel that if we rock our kids to sleep and if they are not sleeping through the night at 3 months, then they will have insomnia as an adult.

What?  How does this even make sense?

While I was spending all that time worrying over him not falling asleep on his own when I put him down "drowsy but awake" I was robbed of enjoying his baby breath on my skin while falling asleep in my arms as I rock his little tired body to sleep.

Then one day I looked up and he was 7 months.  He goes to sleep within seconds of me putting him down, he takes 2 solid naps most days, and is a normally functioning healthy baby boy.  Where did the time go.  Man, I should have rocked him more.

Now, I get what you are thinking, "he is only 7 months"!  You are correct... but did you see how much bigger 7 months looks?!

My advise, don't fret... it will work itself out.  A little secret between you and me... he still wakes up at 5am to nurse before getting up for the day at 7am.  You know what?  I am okay with that!

Next up? I see a birthday cake in the near future...
