Seven-month update :)

This month Joel celebrated his first Halloween and Thanksgiving. 

Joel also started eating three+  meals a day...usually yogurt and a bottle for breakfast, 4 oz. of baby food for lunch, then either cereal or baby food again for dinner & various amounts of formula in his bottle throughout the day.   We introduced "puffs" this month.  So far he's tried sweet potato & blueberry...he likes both, but blueberry is his favorite ;)      We've tried juice & water in a sippy cup, too, but so far, no go!  Joel loves his bottle & I'm pretty sure he doesn't have any plans of giving it up anytime soon. :)

He continues to laugh & giggle...so thankful for such a happy baby!!  Joel reaches out for us to pick him up, and he also started giving hugs, well his version of a hug {burying his head into your chest and snuggling in}...too cute!!   He still doesn't roll over much, but he sits and scoots around on his butt to get where he wants to go!  He rocks back and forth until he does a face plant on the floor...he tries so hard to crawl, but isn't quite there yet.

Joel loved Thanksgiving dinner...sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, soft sugar cookies, and pistachio dessert :)

We put our Christmas tree up last week & Joel is intrigued by all the sparkling lights...he sits and stares at them for long periods of time, while he smiles!!  The next update will include Joel's first Christmas...I think he'll be happy with what Santa brings ;)

I don't have a whole lot to update this month, and I may add more later, but wanted to say "happy 7 months"  - even if I am a week late  :)
