7 Months

Today my baby is 7 months old!

She weighs about 17lbs.

She is about 26 1/2 inches long.

So Harper, what have you been up to this month?

Your laugh is contagious!

You tricked us for a couple of months by sleeping soundly through the night because long gone are those days! You get up on average 2 times a night and nothing soothes you except to a) nurse you, b) cuddle you, or c) nurse AND cuddle you. Unfortunately c) usually wins out because I'm tired and don't stand my ground. I'm working up the nerve to make you stay in your crib and cry it out though. We did this with your brother when he was about this age and I think it's your turn now. Let's hope it works better for you than it did for him because we are all tired...including you, Missy!

I think I'll go ahead a take a nap...for 10 minutes.
 You are nursing around 6 times a day and eating one solid meal (usually at dinner). You've tried carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, peas, bananas, and pears this month. I started off introducing just one per week, but then got too impatient. I learned my lesson though because your skin broke out and you got your first diaper rash (it was really bad, you poor thing) and I'm not sure which food it was from. So you are back on just carrots again and I'll go slower this time to see which food was the culprit.

I love this stuff so much I think I'll smear it all over my body!

You rode in the shopping cart seat for the first time this month. Look at how big you look! 

This is going to make grocery shopping so much easier for your momma.

At least until you're old enough to complain about Bubba touching you ;)

You had your first Thanksgiving and loved all of the attention from cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents. I think you were a little jealous that you didn't get to eat the food, though. Your eyes perk up at the sight of food and you are so curious.

Bring on the turkey!

Your reflux is still going strong. GRRRR. That's all I have to say about that.

What's the big deal, Mommy? I just like to keep you on your toes!

You are such a content, happy baby most of the time and it's great! But, when you are mad you are MAD. You usually only get like that when you're extremely tired and you're fighting sleep. Otherwise you are pretty relaxed and chill. You still aren't mobile at all and don't show much interest in rolling around or scooting or crawling -- you are the complete opposite of your brother in that respect. Which is totally fine with me, ha! :)


Harper, I'm not sure how it's possible because my heart already feels like it's going to burst, but it seems like my love for you grows with each passing day. You are such an incredible blessing in our lives!

Oh that precious little girl. *sigh* She makes me smile. :) For the longest time, I thought she looked just like Harrison, who looks just like Rickles. But as she's growing, she's looking more and more like her beautiful mommy. :)

Love you guys!!
