7 Months Old!

Axel is seven months old!
Axel is still working on those stubborn bottom front teeth.  He still has nothing to show for it except a lot of slobber everywhere.  I really hope they come soon and he gets a bit of a teething break before the next ones make their appearance.
He can sit on his own like a pro now.  He rarely falls over and will sit and play with toys for as long as he wants to before getting upset and crying for me to hold him.  Axel is definitely a mommy's boy and won't hang out for long happily without having me in his sight.  He does pretty well if I am completely gone from the house, but if he knows I am around, he wants to know exactly where I am at all times.
Food is a bit of a struggle for us as he only wants to eat breast milk directly from the source or bananas.  He shuts his mouth so tight if we try to put any other food in it.  Bottles still don't happen.
Axel can sort of crawl.  He bounces around in crawling position, can pivot really well, go backward, and occasionally makes tiny moves forward.  The forward motion is still really difficult for him and it's a constant source of frustration because the poor boy wants to move so bad!
He laughs a lot.  It doesn't take much to get him to explode into giggles.  It is the sweetest thing.  Pearl loves making him laugh and they have a lot of fun together.  He also constantly makes a noise that sounds like Chewbacca.  We can't watch dialog heavy movies anymore because we can't hear what people are saying over that noise he makes.
Axel isn't sleeping through the night so he is still in our room.  He spends part of the night in the co-sleeper and the rest of the night in our bed.  I don't mind too much.  We have perfected the laying-down-while-half-asleep feeding and he is pretty great at cuddling.  I will probably have a hard time once we get around to moving him into the crib.
See how much he has grown!
