7 Months

Hunter turned 7 months last Friday. He's doing well with solid food, although he did have a food strike about a week ago and wouldn't eat any solids for nearly 3 days. I don't know what was going on, but we're back to normal now. As much as he loves to put things (toys, remotes, phones) in his mouth and chew on them you'd think he'd love food. I've tried some new things like biter biscuits (basically a really hard cookie perfect for chewing on) or puffs (kinda like dissolve in your mouth cereal) and he's not the least bit interested. He actually gagged on the puff. I guess we're not ready for that just yet. He doing really well with a sippy cup. He definitely likes to put that in his mouth. He mostly chews on the spout, but he is getting a tablespoon or so out of it. I think the biggest thing to get used to is the taste of something other than milk.

This is the latest development:

He's not crawling yet, but the day he turned 7 months he started getting up on his hands and knees and rocking back and forth. Since then I've seen him pick up one of his hands. It won't be long now!

Before you know it, Hunter will be addicted to Puffs--trust me!
