Charlie is SEVEN months old

I realize that this place has been dead lately.  As usual in the summer, we are OUT!  But Charlie Baylor is changing quickly and just (actually two weeks ago) turned 7 months old.  Here's what's up with him these days: 

He had his 6 month check up in July and was in the 95th percentile for height, weight, and head circumference.  He's a big boy, but he is full of laughs, smiles, and so much joy.  

Although I tried some solids with him over the last couple months, it was just recently that Charlie started eating solids.  And boy is he eating them!  He actually much prefers mashed food on a spoon to his regular bottle.  His favorites are sweet potatoes, peaches, and yogurt.  Boy has a sweet tooth.  I've had to mix some of the less sweet foods (green beans for instance) with pears or peaches to get him to take them. I've noticed that he is a much less messy eater than Savannah was.  That's a little nice. 

Charlie had a ROUGH first few months.  But he really has become fairly easy going.  He lets us take him anywhere.  He goes with it when we force him to skip naps.  And he'll eat on the go if need be.  Isn't he pretty?

Other new things:  
Sleeping three naps a day, but unswaddled now.  
He's also able to roll from back to front, but only seems to do it in his crib when he's trying to not sleep. 
He stands up for long periods of time holding on to things.  And he can pull himself up sometimes. 
He loves to dig.  Cupboards, boxes, drawers, laundry baskets...get it all out boy!

We are so thankful and grateful for this guy.  Not that we wouldn't be anyway, but I think those really hard to take days have made all our good days with him so much sweeter.
