Paisley Grace: 7 months

Our little girl has so much personality! I cannot believe she is already 7 months old.
At 7 months old she:
– Has THREE teeth! Two on the bottom and one on the top! (The top one came through on March 15th!)
– Is a pro at sitting up by herself! Her pediatrician said at her 6 month appointment that she was very advanced as far as sitting up on her own goes.
– Weighs 16 lb 15 oz! She’s hit a growth spurt and is now wearing 6-9 months clothes and size 3 diapers!
– Loves eating all fruits and vegetables (except for peas – we’re working on it)
– Has been sleeping through the night consistently! FINALLY!!
– Doesn’t roll over anymore. She refuses to. Weird, right?
– Smiles constantly. When she smiles her little bottom teeth show and it’s so cute.
– Cracks up laughing after someone sneezes! Maybe she will learn to say “God bless you” one day, but for now – it’s hysterical.
– Had her first ear infection. Ugh it was so sad. But the antibiotics cleared it right up!
– Loves books. She can just lay in her crib or sit on the floor and play with a book and be completely content.
– Said her first word on March 16th: MAMA!! Paisley always says “Mama” and “Baba” (no “Dada” yet – sorry, Gus!)
– Loves to play outside – especially loves to swing!
– Has some funky hair. I know. Most of it fell out and now she’s left with what we refer to as her “toupee” or punk comb-over look. She pulls it off! 😉
– Is working on learning to crawl. I think we’re starting to get close. She will push herself backwards and spin in a circle but hasn’t quite figured out that she can move forward.
– Doesn’t like to take naps. Not even a little bit. At daycare, they usually tell me she had a great day and then follow it up with…”but she didn’t sleep well.”
– Is a total daddy’s girl. She lights up as soon as he comes home from work.
– Only has to wear her boots and bar at night!! This has been a huge praise and a very happy adjustment for our family!! (She will have to wear them at night until she’s 4 years old – but she doesn’t seem to mind a bit!)
– Loves to play with her feet!
– Is going to be home during the day spending time with mommy A LOT more often now! She will only have to go to daycare about 2-3 days a week when I go to practicum. (Which definitely is better than our normal 5 days a week!!)
– Tries to put everything in her mouth! Time to baby-proof the floor for sure!
– Is so silly. Our monthly photoshoots have become quite the task. She is very aware of everything going onaround her and is very easily distracted! (See below)
