Aiden turned 7 months on Saturday. I just can't believe it.  It seemed like the first 3 months were relatively on track.  But the last 4 months have flown by.  He is just getting so much fun.  He is so alert and I have officially become that parent that whips out the pictures whenever I see you (I am really trying to work on that!).  I can't wait to see what the next few months have in store.  Here are our milestones:

Weight: 15lbs. 13 oz.
Height: Unknown (tall!)
Diapers: size 2
Food: loves everything.  He 's eating solids twice a day and formula every 3 hours still when he hasn't been feed food. Consumes around 7oz a feeding. 
Clothing: sizes 6-9 month.  Right on schedule.

Aiden still cannot sit up unassisted but we are working on it.  Since I've noticed he's about a month behind, I am hoping by month 8 we will have mastered it.  I am almost positive he can say "hey".  Whenever we see him, he keep repeating it over and over. He loves to roll and is so close to crawling.  He can also move to an object if he really wants it. 

Head update:  We went to the specialist Wednesday and great news! No surgery.  The sutures in his head are not fused like originally thought.  The doc did recommend helmet therapy and we went to get scanned immediately after out appointment.  Unfortunately for insurance to approve this we have to work an extra month with Aiden to try and strengthen his neck and torso muscles even more.  We may also even have to go to physical therapy because the muscles on his right side of his neck aren't as strong and that is what is causing so much preference to the left side of his head which is where the flat side is.  We have a follow up in a month for another scan of the head and a fitting for the helmet is they deem appropriate.  A helmet is alot better that stitches.
