Stats ~ 7 Months

Gwen, you are 7 months old...
and this is what you are up to...

Weight - 19.2 lbs

Height - 27 inches

Diapers - Size 2-3 or 3, you seem a lot more comfortable, even though they are a little big, it's better than them being too tight.

Clothes - 6-9 months, and some 9 Months (those are a bit big also, but they work!)
Food - Still some formula, whole grain rice cereal and oatmeal, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes (your fav!), peas, green beans, broccoli, bananas, apples, pears.  Moving on to meats this week!

Sleep - Still doing well.  Some mornings you have trouble sleeping past 5am, but when that happens, I come get you, bring you into bed with Mommy & Daddy and give you a bottle.  You hang out with us until Daddy is ready to get up for work.  You're such a cuddlebug in the morning! :)

Naps - You still nap a few times a day, I try to keep you up in the afternoons, so that you sleep better.  You love to car/shop nap!

Teeth - 2. Still.  I wonder when those top two will make an appearance.  If it fits into your mouth, you are chewing on it! Lol.

-You are CRAWLING!  And I mean, MOVING!  It is so great to see you have this new found freedom, even if it does mean that we need to do some SERIOUS baby proofing! 

-You seem very close to pulling yourself up in your crib and/or other places.  Talk about Mommy being a Nervous Nelly :)

-Your "talking" has started to involve a few consonants, not just vowels.  It is really cute, we've had two "Da-Da's" out of you so far.

-You have started to become extremely aware of your surroundings.  I mean, you always have been, but for instance, today we were at the Dr. and you seemed VERY aware of it (crying when we place you on the scale and the nurse started taking measurements).  But you did well the rest of the loooooong visit! 

-You are learning how to "work" us!  Haha!  Just meaning that you seem to know that crying gets our attention, and we have become VERY aware of the FAKE cry. :)

-Daddy and I were talking yesterday, and we just feel like you grew/changed soooooo much this month.  You're such a little person, and you amaze both of us more and more each day.

Your 7 month doctor's visit was yesterday, Thursday April 20, 2011.  Dr. A was called out for an emergency at the hospital right as we got there and it was a VERY LONG wait.  But, WHAT visit isn't long with him?  Good thing we like him, hehe! 

 Mommy and Daddy love you so, so much! We are excited for your first Easter, and all the fun that Spring brings!
