7 Month Update


Height: aobut 27 1/2 inches
Weight: about 16 pounds
Head Circumference: about 17 inches
Vision: Your vision is great as far as we know :) I think it's about time to remove this category!
Movement: You can sit up by yourself for a long time now. You move from sitting up to a crawling position, but no crawling yet. You do an army crawl where you pull yourself forward with your arms and pivot around but that is about it. You should be crawling on your knees any day now. You are a wild woman in your walker. You have mastered going forward and turning. You run all over the house especially away from Dean :)
Eating Habits/New Foods: You are officially eating normal foods!! We started off with spaghetti squash and you loved it. Since then we have tried avocado, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, and bananas. All of which you loved except for the sweet potatoes. You also eat cheerios and puffs now too. You do rice cereal in the morning and a veggie at dinner. You eat about 3-4 ounces per meal. Your milk has cut back to about 4-5 times a day instead of every 3 hours. You also drink a good bit of water out of a sippy cup now.
Sleeping Patterns: Pretty much the same as last month. I am currently in the process of trying to get you to sleep through the night for a full 10 hours, but we are averaging about 8 hours. You now drink a 6 oz bottle before bed so that seems to hold you over a little while longer. The morning nap is like clockwork; an hour and a half after you wake up, you lay down to take a 30-45 minute nap. Then take an mid day nap, and an evening nap with dad on the couch.
Sounds/Words: You said your first word! It was Mama! You say it over and over and it just makes me so happy. I also think you are saying hi, but who knows.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You ate real food for the first time
-You can drink water out of a sippy cup
-You can army crawl
-You said your first word: Mama
-You bowel movements have thickened up and become the color of the food you are eating
New Friends I've made: You made a new friend Dean who comes over to our house every Monday & Thursday. Mommy watches the 2 of you and you love playing with him and learning from him.
Places you went/Adventures: This month we celebrated your first Thanksgiving at both grandparents' houses, you did some black friday shopping, you went to St. Augustine with mommy and Aunt Kelli, you had another sleep over with Grammy while mommy & daddy went to Tallahassee, and (not that this is a good adventure) you got in your first fender bender with mommy. Not a big deal and everyone was fine, but I thought it was worth noting.
Clothes: You are still in 9m for sleepers. These are your current sizes: Gymboree-6, Target-3/6 (The shirts are 12 month, but the pants are 3/6), Carter-6, Old Navy/Gap- 3-6
You are still in a size 2 diaper, but the Christmas diapers are size 3. They are a little big, but I think we are making the jump up to threes once we run out of twos!
