7 months!

I think I say this every new month, but seriously, where has the time gone? It seems like I was just posting Brynna's 6 month stats and pics last week!

Here she is at 7 months:

We have been fortunate that Brynna hasn't been sick a day in her life...until this morning. She woke up with a congested, sniffly, runny (YUCK) nose. At least it's just a little cold :)

She talks more and more, with long strings of syllables- mostly its mamama or dadadada, but I've heard nanana, gagagaga, babababa among others. She loves blowing raspberries and is fascinated by her tongue.
No teeth yet, but lots of drool (more than normal I would say).

She LOVES to stand and has pulled herself up to a couple things just this week. I foresee it happening more and more in the coming weeks.

She loves to sit and play with toys and reaches for certain ones that she "likes."

She has figured out that she can get to her hands and knees from a sitting position, but once there will rock a couple times, plop down to her tummy and then roll right over. Ha! It's the funniest thing to watch because you can almost see the wheels turning in her head. She does NOT like being on her tummy still.

She also scoots a little when sitting and playing, but I think at this point it's still on accident and not purposeful. I don't think she really realizes that she has moved a few feet to reach the toys out of reach LOL! I'm sure crawling is just around the corner!

She still fits into all her 6 month clothes and is in a couple 6-9 month things. The saddest part is most of her 6 month clothes are dresses and stuff for warmer weather, but since it has been unseasonably cold here for the last couple months, she wears basically the same 5 or 6 outfits. I just hope we get some warm weather before she outgrows everything!

She is still nursing 6-8 times a day, including once or twice at night. We are still only doing 2 solid food meals a day- breakfast and dinner- but will probably add lunch sometime this month or next (doctor's orders). She is still trying new foods, but now does some of the 2nd food mixes as well (last night she had an apple/. butternut squash mix). We make most of our own food still, but usually the first try of something is out of a jar (less waste if she ends up being allergic). She has found a few favorites too including rice with apples or pears, peas and carrots. She DOES NOT like overripe bananas though. I've tried a few times with bananas on the verge of becoming banana bread and she will have NONE of it. She clamps her mouth down after the first bite and won't open it again unless I get he something else.

We are still going strong with our cloth diapers and have found that our favorites are still the BG OS we originally bought. I don't really care for the snaps on other brand. I much prefer Velcro- We get a better fit and NO leaks! She has gone from just the infant inserts to the bigger, more absorbent regular inserts too.

She gets more and more of a personality everyday! We are loving EVERY minute!!

That's all I can think of for now :)

Happy 7 months Princess! We love you!

Mommy's going to have to lower that mattress soon! =:o ;)

SOOO cute!! I can't believe she is pulling up already!! do you get her clothes to fit over the CD's??? That is my biggest complaint about them and the reason we ONLY use them at home and NEVER when we go out b/c I want her to be able to wear the little panties and bloomers that match her dresses.

T- congrats. It's hard to believe B and V are both 7 months! Sounds like V and B are doing alot of the same things. Too bad we don't live close so they could play together! Anyway, glad all is well! She's super cute!! :)
