Thursday, Paige turned 7 months! She is now officially closer to being a 1 year old than a little baby. I have a hard time dealing with the fact she's not an infant anymore and is only going to keep getting bigger.
Paige is definitely a water baby. She loves bath time and going to the pool. I can't wait to show her the ocean! I think she will love it!
7 Month Stats:
(i'm guessing on these since we don't have a check up this month)
Weight: About 16.5 pounds or 7.5 kilos
Length: 26-27 inches?
Size Diaper: Pampers Medium at night, Fuzzibunz Medium cloth and Bumgenius One size cloth
Size Clothes: 6-9 months. She just wore her first 9 month sleeper last night
Sleep: She sleeps from about 7:30-7 am. Most mornings she wakes up before 7. Sometimes she'll sleep till 7:30. Her naps are 9-11 and about 1:15-3:15. She sometimes take a catnap at 5, but I'm pretty sure she's about done with those.
Feedings: Nurses at 7, 11, 3, and 7. The past several days she's been eating closer to 11:30 and 3:30. After the 11 feed, she gets a new food and about 1 Tbs cereal. After the 3 feeding, she gets 1-2 ounces of solid food, with about 2 Tbs cereal.
This month she had: green beans, prunes, pears, peas, peaches, and carrots. So seemed to really like her pears. She makes faces with almost everything else, except cereal. But she still opens really wide to eat anything we give her. I feel like i'm running out of new foods to give her-mostly because of what is available in the markets right now. We are going to Hong Kong this week for visa stuff, and can get cheap avocados. I want to bring some back for her to try.
We've given her a sippy cup a few times with water to get her used to it, but so far she hasn't figured that out yet.
Daniel's parents were here for about 11 days. Paige was a little off schedule with missing naps, and one night was a little fussy. Paige is not a cuddler; those moments are rare. Which is why I love this picture with Sherry so much!
Paige LOVES walking around with someone holding her hands. She loves to stand and hold onto something by herself too. All she wants to do is stand, and I'm wondering if we're going to skip crawling all together.
How adorable is this hoody outfit??? I could die of the cuteness.
Look Mom, one hand!
Speaking of crawling.....Paige can get on her hands and knees and rock, but hasn't figured out yet how to move. She gets SO mad-you can tell she really wants to be mobile.
The past several nights Paige will keep trying to crawl in her crib. Last night she was up from 10-12:30 trying and fussing about it. It was as fun as it sounds.
This is my new favorite picture. She blows me away with how beautiful she is.
It's getting to be almost impossible to get a good picture these days. She is always on the move.
Paige smiles so much, but she never wants to do it for the camera. When I was taking her 7 month pictures I was having the hardest time to get her to smile. Our local friend came over shortly after and Paige couldn't stop smiling. She LOVES the locals here! She always smiles and is super happy to see them, especially when they give her attention.
I think this is the only bow that fits her now. I need to get on that and get some bigger ones.
Paige loves to play on our bed. We have a large wall hanging from India above our bed. And she loves to look at it and "talk" to it.
- Paige is sitting up all the time now without any help. She can go from a sitting position to a crawling position, and rolls all over the place. She will chew on anything she can get her hands on.
- She loves strangers! She will smile at anyone she doesn't know and will let anyone hold her.
- She can sit in a highchair now, which is so nice when we go out to eat.
- Paige plays really good by herself, which is something i'm really thankful for. We try to do room time or alone playtime once a day for about 15 minutes.
- Paige's favorite song is Call Me Maybe. If she's getting fussy in the evening, I play it for her.
I'm pretty sure these next several months are going to be full of change and new things for Paige! We love her so much and just can't get enough hugs and kisses from our little girl!
That's our Paigers at 7 months!
