7 Months

Weight: 13 pounds 6 ounces
Height: 25 1/8 inches
Diapers: Size 2
Clothes: 3-6 months and 6 months
Sleep: 10-12 hours at night with 2 or 3 naps during the day
Current loves: putting anything and everything in her mouth, playing peekaboo, laughing at Belle and trying to figure out how to get Belle's hair in her mouth - Belle of course is not allowing this to happen
Dislikes: getting dressed, green vegetables and taking her out of the bathtub

It came so fast that I didn't even realize Savannah Kate was 7 months old this week.  The time is flying by - I always thought that was something that parents just said, but it really is true.  She is at such a fun age right now, really exploring the world around her and looking for new toys to play with.  She seriously wants to put everything in her mouth so I have to be careful with what is around her now.  Poor Belle doesn't understand why Savannah Kate wants to pull her hair so much.  She's also making lots of new sounds and I've definitely heard a "ma" sound - maybe it won't be much longer before she says mama!  She's been saying da da for awhile now.

Savannah Kate has started taking some formula everyday and seems to like it just fine.  She's also getting a few ounces of apple juice a day to help with her digestion.  She loves it and I bet it's nice to get something to drink besides milk everyday.  She eats food twice a day.  Usually a fruit and oatmeal or cereal in the morning and a fruit and vegetable in the evening.  I'm not sure how much actually gets swallowed, but she seems to be enjoying the process!  It always seems to end up in her hair, eyebrows, ears, etc...she loves everything about eating, except being wiped down afterwards.  She also doesn't care much for green vegetables so I've been mixing them with fruits and that seems to work for now.

She is finally sleeping now without being swaddled!  This was a huge adjustment to make over the last month, but we have finally accomplished our goal.  I was afraid I would be having to swaddle her until I could no longer find a swaddling blanket to fit.  I know this seems like a small milestone, but it was a big deal for us :)
