Emily is seven months old now! She is officially closer to a year old now than a newborn. Sad! We love our little girl but it is so bittersweet that she is growing so quickly. I try to soak up every stage she is in, while she is in it. This is such a fun age!
Size: She wears nine month clothing and wears size three diapers.
Sleep: Basically the same as when she was six months old. She is going to bed a little earlier these days and has sometimes let me put her down for a couple of hours at night. Baby steps ;).
Eating: Emily still nurses every 2-3 hours. She can go a little longer now without eating but we enjoy breastfeeding! I've also given her a few new solids. She seems to prefer banana over everything else but she does enjoy apple cinnamon Graduate's puffs! We cheated and gave them to her a little early.
Playtime: Emily loves to look at books now! It's fun to read to her throughout the day. My mom and dad have bought her a bunch of books. Her favorite right now seems to be "I Like Myself". We put Emily in a baby swing at the playground for the first time a few days ago and she liked that. She rolls around all over the place and can get what she wants that way. She also loves to watch other babies/kids. She is very observant and allert. She also loves dogs! She is constantly reaching for Jexi and my parents dog, Tyler.
Learning: She is slowly learning how to put her puffs in her own mouth. She has done it a couple of times. I have been practicing having her sit up but she can't really do that yet without support. She started being able to turn herself around in her activity seat. Rolling is a breeze for her! She is great at reaching for things/people she wants.
