Oops we are a bit behind. The text from this post was written at 7 months but I didn’t get a chance to take any photos until now.
Woo hoo! 7 months has passed us by with not too many changes from last month. Which I am totally okay with, because everything is pretty great right now. She looks like such a big girl to me now, especially when I see little 7 week year olds in my Yoga classes.
Sleep: Still rocking the 2AM feed, with her total sleep time roughly from 7PM-7AM. I feel blessed to have a few hours every evening by myself or with the hubby, even though it does mean if you want to have dinner with us you will be catching the early bird special. I am also excited for the day when she can drop her nightly feeding.
Milestones: Fully sitting up on her own, and can maintain that for awhile although eventually falls over which usually results in a cry fest. She still hates tummy time and immediately rolls to her back when we try that, so it will be interesting to see how and when she crawls. She LOVES to be standing and enjoys her activity center and standing swing thingy so much. Babbling ba-ba-ba- and da-da-da. It will make me so happy if daddy is her first word since she’s already destined to be a daddy’s girl. Still no teeth, but I swear it will be any day now. She’s had all the signs of teething for about four months now.
Eating: We have a great eater on our hands so far! I hope it stays this way. One huge blip she hit was getting extremely constipated very easily, (sorry for sharing this with the world Em,) so the types of food we have had to offer her recently are representative of that. She loves eggs, prunes, avocados, bananas, pears, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes and peas. Peaches and carrots are the two choices she’s not a huge fan of yet. As I write this I realize I need to introduce more vegetables, but we got sidetracked by the P foods (good for the embarrassing issue mentioned above.)
Likes: Continues to love nakkie time and bath time so much it’s hilarious. She’s fairly reserved and quiet but once the clothes come off she is a smiling and giggling baby. I’ll try not to read too much into that. She loves to be tickled and given smooches.
Dislikes: Same as always: car rides, loud noises, and people in her face.
Overall, it’s been a fairly smooth month, not a ton of changes, just more development on what she already has mastered. Even though time feels as if it’s moving lightning fast, it’s so fun seeing each new stage so I try to focus on that.
Can’t wait to see what month 8 brings!
