7 month update!

Topic : Daily Glimpses

Miss Clarabelle June is now 7 months old.

Time has flown by and yet…moved slowly too.

I look back at pictures of her at 1 month and I’m amazed at how much she has changed.

1 month old

And here she is at 7 months…

7 months!

I mean, are you kidding me?
Look how much bigger she is!!

And she has a for real tooth…

Lower left and it’s sharp…

She’s a really happy kid!

Unless she doesn’t nap, then it’s serious business face.

Not gonna give up the smile today.

She loves being outside and we sit on the front porch and blow bubbles.

Sunshine, CBJ, perfect spring day

We also do a morning walk, which she loves.

We use the Baby K’Tan- love it!! .

When we’re in the house she plays on stacked blankets which I move from room to room so I can get things done with her near me.
She likes banging bowls together A LOT.

Bowls, ring toy, hours of entertainment.

She also models outfits from my Aunts, this one was a gift from Aunt Becky- very serious business in this one.

Love the hair, love the rolls.

She is sitting up great, not crawling but she does some face planting in her attempts to go forward.
She loves books, my hairbrush, paper, and playing with nalgene bottles.

She does not like- napping.
She’s moving around in her crib now but is happy so, she can grab her feet in there as much as she likes!

She also does not like- getting her clothes changed.
But we do that many times a day so gotta get used to it as some point I guess.

We’re still exclusively breast feeding.
Not sure when the Baby Led-Weaning is going to start but I’m sure I’ll have pictures of her with carrots or something when it does.
We’re not in a rush with solids, our pediatrician agreed that if she’s happy and growing- all is good.
He also was a fan of Baby Led-Weaning which made me feel even better about our decision to start her on solids that way.

At her 6 month check-up she weighed 20.3 pounds and since I carry her quite a lot, I’m gonna give her another pound cause she feel heavier to me!

Our days are busier as she loves to get out and see people and socialize.
The days also revolve around her naps…or lack of naps.
As she become more aware of her surrounding she really would rather be awake…which is cute till she’s cranky ALL day and by 5:00 p.m. it’s a melt-down.

Work in progress people.

Still doing the “No-Cry Sleep Solution” and we are making progress..mostly at night though!
: )

We’ll see what the next month brings, I have a feeling it will involve some pool time…which I am so excited for, the swimsuits are SO cute!

    Emma, I have the same problem with Tess who is not quite 22 months. Still nursing and sometimes refuses to eat. We add raw sprouted protein to her smoothies. Not a huge amount but just a little. She will almost always eat eggs, pancakes and bacon (I'd very easily be ovolactovegetarian but Daddy is a meat eater) or eggs, guacamole, Brown rice and black beans. Or avocado. Those are my only two "go to" meals. And carbs. She'll eat cookies or crackers for days. Glad the doctor was supportive, I've been thinking about going there as well. I'm sick of the weaning conversation.

      Scrambled eggs are a hit so I'm going to keep offering, avocado too.. I was impressed by Little Flower, it is so refreshing to be in a place that supports breastfeeding. Not a formula pamphlet in the place. And applause for continuing to breastfeed? Makes me want to go daily! It's far by driving standards (least from our house) but worth it to be able to not get hassled about parenting choices.

    Wow, I'm so glad we aren't the only ones who have gone through all these ups and downs with nursing. G is still nursing strong at 14.5 months. There were times when I swore he was weaning himself (8/9 months, and I cried and cried), and nowadays lately he nurses like a newborn. Some days I have so much milk that I'm still spurting and needing nursing pads, other days I think he looks at me like, "Turn it on, mama!" I think the lesson after we have put all this time in it should be: our babies and our bodies know what to do! :)
