I’m not exactly sure how accurate his height and weight measurements are this month since I did them myself, but I do know we’ve had a MAJOR growth spurt.  Like, completely blew through his 6 month clothing in a matter of a couple of days and is already wearing 9 month jammies.
He is also blowing through his clothes in other ways too, if you know what I mean.  I swear, they need to have wingback chair versions that go up to their shoulders.  It truly amazes me.
He has the rollover thing down, going from his back to his belly.  And, his belly laughs are getting bigger and bigger every day.  A surefire way to get him to laugh is when Izzy and I fake sneeze.  Brings down the house I tell ya! 
And, the biggest news yet – he is finally sleeping 12 hours through the night!  Thank you Jesus!!!!  I knew he was just getting up out of habit, but I was too busy/overwhelmed/completely pooped to deal with it.  But, all is good now.  That is until the next stage hits and you swear all your hard work has gone down the drain and they’ll never sleep again and “don’t you even try to tell me this is just a phase because it feels totally different than last time” and I should just accept that I’ll never get a full nights sleep again… phase 😉

    So cute! I can totally relate to the growth spurt and blow outs. My 6 month old is in the 94th % for weight. Super chunk. The first thing people notice are her thighs. Total turkey legs;)

    I love your Samuel posts, your updates and the fact that he is BLOWING through his you-know-whats too!

    Lol…and I won`t tell you it`s just a phase re: the sleep, but I`ll cross my fingers for you! Question: does he have any teeth yet? 🙂

    I`m with you re: the whole – accepting the fact that you won`t sleep through the night for years! Lol…

    LOL – he's so dang cute. And the 12 hours sleeping thing is kinda tickin' me off. Ha! I swear to everything holy that if Laney doesn't start taking naps, I may need to be committed.

    What a cutie! My baby is 4 years old, and this post totally brought back memories. I don't miss the blowouts and the sleepless nights, but I do miss snuggling with a sweet little baby 🙂
