7 Month Update

Our sweet baby is 7 months old today.  It's finally been really nice outside, so we have been spending as much time as possible outside.  She just loves to be in the outdoors.  There is a park right down the street with a baby swing and the grocery store is within walking distance.  We take walks now whenever we can.  This week, we went to the zoo.  Her favorite animal, I think, was the bobcat.  She followed it around with eyes as it walked around its cage.  I can't wait until she gets a bit older and she is really more interested.

She loves to stand and play outside the exersaucer.
Anne is sitting up without support now.
 She is a 100% daddy's girl.  She loves to eat papa's hat first thing when he gets home from work.

This month, we celebrated Anne's first Easter.

Eating: She is still nursing around the clock.  We have started introducing solid foods.

So far:
Thumbs Up: sweet potatoes, green beans, applesauce, avocado, peas, squash, carrots, bananas

Thumbs Down: Oatmeal, spinach, peaches

We have to try some new foods and introduce these again.  She likes her vegetables best when slightly warmed with butter.  She will occasionally eat oatmeal if we disguise it well with other foods she likes.

Sleeping: She still doesn't like to take a daytime nap.  Her sleep pattern has been all over the place this month.  She still is getting up every 3 hours during the night to nurse.


* She loves to stand.

* She can sit all by herself unsupported now, so we have been practicing that new skill

* She has really started to show her personality.  She laughs and smiles a lot now.

*She is not crawling yet, but she is starting to draw her knees under herself and lift.  We might have a crawler before long.

* She is showing the signs of an impending tooth on the bottom and the top.

* She loves to explore her world and has to "taste" everything.
