7 month update (2 months late)

since it has been 2.5 months since i have posted and 2 "month" milestones...it is official that I am a terrible blogger....but i think i already knew that.  i guess i'll post 7 and 8 months separately...that way I don't mix it up.  forgive me if i talk about 7 month milestones in 8 months, or vica versa...but you won't really know anyway.

so here we go.  7 months (aka July 20, 2013)


weight: somewhere near 20 lbs...
height: LONG...i assume she is still near 90th percentile 
medical: happy healthy baby. we had a run in with diaper rash for the first time...and if you are still reading at the 8 month update you will hear more about this...overall...very very healthy



sleep: we decided to "cry it out" from 6 months on. my rule of thumb was that if she woke up after 5 AM, i would get up with her, if it was before we would let her cry.  we only let her cry for 15 minutes at a time before we go up there and comfort her...thankfully we have never had to do this more than once. she has been sleeping pretty good now...still working on sleeping through the night


clothes/diapers: 9-12 months depending on the brand. size 2/3 diapers..she upsized during the month.  



diet: we have started food.  she has made her way through many fruits and veggies...so far peaches is the only thing she doesn't like.  she is a great eater, and is always ready to try something new.  i have home made all of her food so far, except for cereal she eats in the mornings.  


milestones: this was the month of mobility.  she went from being able to move around a little, to full on crawling. with crawling came sitting up.  so she can go from back to belly to crawling to sitting and back to belly...there is really no stopping her now.  que the baby proofing. she also became a lot more "vocal" this month, which included a lot of growling(?)...i guess she is just testing her range.




likes: eating, drinking from the sippy cup, playing with "Gerry" the giraffe above her changing table, bath time, trying to pet rigsby, being in the stroller


dislikes: she is starting to become impatient during diaper changes, being put down in the mornings while we get ready for work, swimming!
