Tracey Ann -- 7 Months

Our baby girl is growing SO fast and changing, literally, everyday.

  Approximately 16.5 pounds -- the perfect size

I'm not entirely sure... she's still wearing her six month sleepers, so her length/height might have stayed constant this month.

Clothing size:
She wears mostly six-month clothes, but I've pulled out a few nine-month clothes.  Most of the nine-month clothes I put her in are more because they are summer clothes and I want her to wear them while the weather is nice.
Breast milk and lots of fruits and veggies.  She likes a variety of food tastes and textures -- the food that is her favorite one day, she won't like the next day.  So far she has tasted avocado, banana, tomatoes, butternut squash, pickles, applesauce, carrots, blueberries, corn, tuna, chicken, peaches, watermelon, melon, pineapple and pears... maybe more, but that's what I can remember.  She is gaining such hand-eye coordination, and grip-strength by our encouraging her to feed herself.  We are LOVING the baby-led weaning we're doing.

She's officially been in her nursery for about three weeks, and she is doing really well.  It has been a great month for us sleep-wise -- she is sleeping about nine-hours at night, then, after a feeding, she will sleep for another two hours.  We nave a really nice night time routine, and we're feeling good about sleeping this month.  During the day, she takes about three naps, each about an hour a piece.  We are all more rested this month.  Praise God!
New Accomplishments: 
  • Reaching and leaning for whatever she wants
  • Rolling over and over and over -- stomach to back, back to stomach
  • Spinning around on her stomach like a bottle
  • Basically, she moves anyway she needs to to get what she wants
  • She has started shrieking this month to get our attention -- we don't love it
  • She's starting to begin to pull herself up, with help
  • Staying home with our nanny a few days each week
  • She's getting better and better at sitting up -- she still falls over occasionally, but she's getting steadier and steadier

  •  Bath time -- bath time is a great time for us each evening and we have a blast
  • Trying new food
  • Blowing raspberries with her mouth
  • Mama and Daddy
  • Lloyd and Lexie
  • Helping Mama and Daddy -- basically being wherever we are and included in whatever we are doing
  • Not much this month... she is such a happy easy-going baby girl
    Places She Went:
    •  Mount Rushmore
    •  Camping for the first time

    Special Memories:
    • Camping for the first time -- Lloyd, Tracey Ann, Hubby and me all in a little two-man tent.  It was awesome!
