Grace: 7 Month Old Update

She’s 7 months old!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! *dances like a crazy person*

Is she still too young to start planning her birthday party? I’m so excited I can’t wait!

 

She’s how big!?

Last month she was wearing size 6-9 month size clothing, but now she has a wider range of sizes. Her legs are thick and chunky so for pants/leggings she wears 9-12 months or 12-18 months depending on the brand, buy her torso isn’t long and so she can still wear size 6-9 month bodysuits in some brands. Other brands though she’s in 9-12 months!

Length: 71 cm (28 inches)
Weight: 8.6 kg (19 lbs)
Diaper Size: 3 (because I’m trying to finish a box. After this box I’ll start using cloth diapers and size 4)
Clothes: 6-9 months and 9-12 months

 

Milestones

Sitting Up: Seemingly overnight she went from needing support to sit to sitting with confidence. Now, she whines if you put her on her back. She wants to sit and grab every toy in sight

Playing Favourites: Since she’s so confident in sitting up now, I usually let her play with a few toys around her and she always reaches for the Mega Blocks. It’s her favourite toy! Specifically the red one.

Paying Attention : “Grace. G.R.A.C.E” and she turns her head and looks at me. SHE KNOWS HER NAME. Every time someone engages in conversation with her I find myself asking them to call her name just to see her respond.

Loving Daddy: Okay, so loving daddy isn’t a milestone, but she knows the time he comes home from work and every noise in the area of the door causes her to whip her head around to look in anticipation.

Pick Me Up: If I tell her to come she lifts her arms into the air for me to pick her up. She ever reaches out to others if she wants them to hold her!

 

Sleeping

She only sleeps on me again even though we were making progress with the mattress, but you know what, it’s okay. I’ve prayed over a thousand prayers for a healthy baby and sometimes when things get frustrating or don’t work out exactly how I want them I always have to humble myself and remember that. Every night I get hold my sleeping baby in my arms and that’s good enough for me.

Eating

Still eating all the same foods shes been eating at 6 months!
