We have a 7 month old!

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Claire turned 7 months yesterday! She is still the most mellow baby! She is definitely in the put everything in her mouth phase! She has the sweetest laugh and it is even sweeter when Kenley is the one who made her laugh! I seriously can not imagine having a sweeter baby. Sometimes I think that she is extra sweet to me because I have to forgo eating dairy for her :)!

She had a Dr. appointment the day before yesterday and weighed 13 lbs 8 oz. Her head circumference was 42.5 cm and her length was 62 cm. She did great at the appointment except for when the Dr. placed the tongue depressor in her mouth to look at her throat.... she gaged and threw up all over me. Fun! :)

The doctor actually thinks that Claire is sleeping for too long of stretches at night! What?!?! She sleeps from about 8:30 or 9 until about 7 in the morning! I definitely do not plan on starting to wake her up! I think that if she is a great sleeper I should continue to let her be one!

We started her on cereal yesterday too!
I was waiting until she seemed ready. I'm still not sure if she was ready but we tried anyway!
She hated it! She probably only swallowed half of a bite. I think I might try giving her some avocado today instead of the cereal because I wouldn't really want to eat that cereal either.

This is not the typical Claire face :)

Sometimes I get a little discouraged about how much work two little ones is, but then I look at Claire and can not imagine my life without her in it. Her sweet face definitely snaps me out of that funk! I am so thankful that God has given us these 2 sweet little girls!

She's a cutie pie. Seems she is doing very well and sleeping very well! Our little Mary is 4 months and not sleeping through the night - so I say...DON'T WAKE THE BABY!!
Have you tried feeding her avocado? Rich in Omega 3's and easily digested!! Great first food!

Oh Claire you are so cute I can't wait to meet you and she your Mommy, Daddy, and sissy! I agree with you too Keri, let the baby sleep! That is one of the craziest things I have ever heard! I have to say I'm honeslty a bit jealous because Aiden is not a good sleeper, but then again David did spoil me...I love the bib as well, absolutely perfect...I can't believe our babies are getting so big! See you next month! PS Jim got his motorcycle from one of his marines :) I've only riden once, but is sure was fun!
