Today Abbie turned 7 months old!
Weight: I think about 17 pounds.
Health: All good now. She had a little bit of a stuffy nose about a week ago (that I think she caught from me), and a pretty bad diaper rash – both are gone now!
Sleep: Ugh. Still going through issues with her sleeping…although sleeping on her tummy seems to help her – here’s hoping it continues to help!
Social: She is shrieking and laughing all over the place! She loves to hear her voice!
Diet: Formula, Purees, and Finger Foods – we’re doing a combination of purees and baby led weaning. She loves scrambled eggs, peaches, yogurt, pears, and broccoli.
Clothes: Officially moved her into the 6-9 and 9 month clothes…I think a few of the 6 month clothes would still fit, but they’d be really snug.
Baby Gear Love: Nothing too new here – loves her jumperoo and her shape toys. She loves sitting on the floor with all her toys and shaking them. She also has really been using her lovey at bed and naptime, at least at home. She doesn’t seem to need it at daycare.
Crying: Only when she needs something or is tired.
Likes: Jumping in the pool, playing with mommy and daddy on the big bed, going up and down the stairs (she gets the biggest smile – it’s hilarious), the kittens, feeding herself.
Nicknames: Abs, Abbiecakes, Squirt, Bug, Buggie
Postpartum: Feeling great! I’m planning to do a post in my weight loss later in the week.
Milestones: Abbie is getting so close to crawling…She now leans forward from a sitting position to get on her tummy, and can scoot backwards a little….good thing we’re getting baby gates soon!
My dear sweet girl,
Every day your personality comes out more and more. Lately you’ve started giving me kisses, and I love every slobbery second of it. You are always so excited to see me and such a happy baby. You’re really starting to be more independent, but you still always look for us to be around. We had a great month, and I can’t wait to see what the next one brings. I love you more than anything, sweet girl.
