7 Months!

Today is New Years Eve and also Jake's 7 month birthday! 7 months! Jake is a boy on the move these days! He is rolling all over the place, and scootching side to side and backwards. He is definitely getting ready for the next phase of crawling. Jake continues to be quite the eater, which is evidenced by those cheeks, and the fact that I am sure he weighs more than Samantha! Jake is very chatty, especially when he is eating, and of course he is happiest when his belly is full! We are starting to let him cry it out a bit when we put him down for bed. I am not sure how we ever managed to do this with Samantha, especially since she was our first. For some reason, I am having a much harder time with Jake crying it out. Maybe because in the back of my mind I am worried that he will wake up Samantha. Chris is much more level headed about the crying. I find I just have to go to an area of the house where I can't hear the crying and let him deal with it! We are going to have to start looking for a new car seat in the new year. Jake is just getting too big for the infant carrier, and it takes quite the arm strength to carry him around in the seat! Potentially taking both Jake and Samantha out of regular car seats posses problems, but we'll have to deal with them eventually! I love that the infant carrier allows me to put him down on the ground if need be. I think we may have to resort to the stroller more often for Jake once he's out of the infant carrier!
