7 months

Happy 7 months sweet Caroline! What a fun time for you - you're learning new skills every day and you are certainly no longer a 'stay in one place' child. You're a wiggle worm and yearning to be on the move these days! You've been sick with the croup all week - you're still running a fever and not feeling well today, but smiling away! Your onesie says "best gift ever" - we all agree!

7 months - December 15, 2011

Here are some wonderful things you're up to at 7 months:
  • you have two teeth! They are your front bottom teeth and they are super cute!
  • your hair is growing, growing, growing and it's dark!
  • you are a rolling machine - you could roll all over the house if we'd let you.
  • you're super wonderful at tummy time - we think it will be no time before you're crawling. You've got a big sister to keep up with after all!
  • you can sit up well by yourself - we use the Boppy from time to time because you're still perfecting your balance, but you love to sit up.
  • you've graduated to the high chair - you LOVE it!
  • you're eating solids and have liked most everything you've tried: sweet potatoes, bananas, pears, apples, blueberries, apricots. You don't like peas or oatmeal so far, but we're working on it. You are eating three 4 oz jars a day.
  • you're sleeping better at night - you have been on a streak of sleeping from 7:00 p.m. - 5:00 a.m. for a few weeks now. And you've gone until 6:00 a.m. a couple of times.
  • you are still napping okay - not great, but enough. Most days a couple of 30-45 minute naps after awake time - especially at school. At home you will take longer naps of up to 2 or 2 1/2 hours.
  • you grab at everything you see - you especially like to grab hair or glasses.
  • you love the constant entertainment that your sister brings to your life.
  • you are jabbering big time - you can say dada, but don't know who you are referring to yet.
  • you are beefing up, finally. At our doctor visit this week you were up to 16 lbs 13 oz. Almost a pound in two weeks - you go girl!
  • you're wearing 6-12 month clothing.
  • you had your first round of steroids this month for the croup - you took them like a champ.
  • you've figured out all the toys on the excersaucer - you like to make the music play the most.
  • you nurse 5-6 times a day depending on your wake up time.
“You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
Psalm 16:11 (NIV)
