7 Months!

I'm getting bad with blogging.  I think the truth is I feel I have so little free time now a days that I prefer to spend it with R2D2 and Joe, catching up on sleep, or reading.

Baby girl turned 7 months last week!  She's growing and developing in leaps and bounds.  I'm not going to lie, I was a little bummed that she wasn't sitting up on her own at 6 months even though the pediatrician in me knew it was ok.  Well, I don't need to worry any longer, she's doing great sitting up.  She also is one big talker.  I can't wait to hear what she has to stay when she understands she has words and can make sentences.  I'm already fearing the calls home from her teachers that she's talking in class.

We didn't have a doctor's appointment this month, but based on weighing myself with her, I think she's about 17 pounds 13 ounces.  Gone is my 5th percentile baby.  She received a box of size two diapers as a gift, so we've been squeezing her into them.  I officially used the last one today, so I guess we have officially graduated to size 3 diapers.  Clothes wise she's straddling 6 months and 9 months.  Most of the 6 month pants are too short for her now, but some of the onesies are ok.  I predict she'll be in solely 9 month clothes by next week.

Once R2D2 turned 6 months she had two teeth erupt!  It's neat watching them come up even more and now I'm getting used to her smile with those two bottom teeth.

R2D2 is sleeping much better now. She's more consistently only waking once a night.  My call schedule has been almost every 4th night and the night after I'm gone she wakes up more often (I think to make sure I'm still home), but nothing like she used to.
I'm proud to say I'm still breast feeding.  She's transitioned to a fair number of solids that we haven't really needed to supplement for the past couple of weeks.  I can tell she's starting to wean and it's making me a little sad.  I'm going to miss our breastfeeding sessions.

Along with talking, I think baby girl's other favorite thing to do right now is play in her exersaucer.  She jumps, and jumps, and jumps, spins herself around, and just has a grand old time.  (Funny, so I reread the previous month's post to see if I miss anything and I basically wrote this same sentence in her 6 month post!)

Oh, her eyes are still blue!
