Adelyn’s Seven Month’s Old!

How did this last month fly by SO fast?!?! I feel like I was just writing her six month post! (wait I was...since I did it SO late!) January 21st Adelyn turned 7 months old. 7 MONTHS!!! How did my baby get this old already??IMG_09711

I feel like I say this every month, but Adelyn is SO fun right now! She loves to play! Her favorite toy is the one that you have to hit a button or turn a knob and something pops up. She's REALLY good at closing them, we're still working on the opening part! And of course Sophie & her taggie blanket have been a favorites for a long time. She still loves to gnaw on Sophie!IMG_0972

She is so close to crawling. She has been army crawling for about 6 weeks now. The week of January 9th she started getting up on her hands & knees and rocking, but then would go back to her tummy and arm crawl! And she's SO fast at army crawling...I just can't get over it! I'll be down in the hall and she's right behind me in no time at all!IMG_1009

The first two weeks in January she was teething pretty good! She was gnawing on everything, her gums were swollen, and a drooling machine! She took a 3 hour nap Mon, Tuesday, & Wednesday one week and then still slept all night. Finally the week before she turned 7 months old her top 2 teeth made their appearance! Even though Adelyn has been teething she is still her happy self, just sleepy! She started making this new face this month where she smiles (showing her teeth), squints her eyes, and wrinkles her nose, kinda like a cheesy smile! It SO cute!! Her other new face she makes is the fish lips, but they're off center! It's SO cute!!IMG_0983

Right after she turned 6 months old we celebrated her first Christmas. She liked the rip the paper on her gifts, but then would just want to eat the wrapping! Unfortunately the poor girl got sick on Christmas. Christmas day through Thursday she was running 102+ temp and 2 of those days she was on antibiotics. Another ear infection. She had a rough week. Poor girl!! The doctor said if she gets ear infection again we will have to talk tubes.IMG_0998

We were off work for a few weeks over Christmas. During this time we started solid foods with Adelyn. Her first try was homemade apple sauce. Every time she took a bite she made a sour face, but continued to eat it. Then a few days later we tried sweet potatoes and she did the same thing! We laughed so much at our sweet baby's silly's faces!! Eventually she stopped making the face when she was eating, but solid foods went on hold the week she was sick. I have made almost all her food except carrots & pears. She's had apples, sweet potatoes, pears, prunes, peas, bananas, and carrots. She's also had puffs & the Gerber yogurt melts. We will continue to introduce new foods as well.IMG_1003

Adelyn is consistently eating 5 times a day. I nurse her in the morning and at night before bed. And then she has 3 bottles of breastmilk at daycare. She gets either cereal or oatmeal in the morning with a fruit and then at night we usually give her a vegetable and a fruit. I think this month we will add the 3rd meal to her day.
Adelyn finished wearing size 2 diapers this month and I just bought our first box of size 3's for when our stock of 2's run out. And she's wearing size 3-6 mo, 6-9mo, and some 6-12 mo clothes. We're close to retiring those 3-6 mo clothes!seven months
