Maggie Turns 7 Months
Our baby is growing up! When the 9th rolled around this month I couldn't believe our little girl had been with us for 7 months.
Maggie is full of smiles, she loves to babble and gets very excited telling us all about it. Her favorite toy is her little orange monkey that was passed down from brother. She LOVES that little thing. She also sticks her tongue out all of the time. I will have to go back and see when Vann did this because I remember him doing this as well! It cracks us up.
She sleeps through the night 75% of the time now. When we moved into our new house she was 3 months old. She was a great sleeper and then around 3 and 1/2 months she was waking up around 1:30 am. So when Maggie began sleeping through the night about 2 weeks ago we were ecstatic!
She's finally decided she wants to eat food! At Maggie's 6 month appt she was almost 14 lbs. Trust me she nurses a lot and when I pack bottles she sucks them down and is content. A couple of weeks ago she started eating and really leaning in for the spoon. She's tried sweet potatoes, apples, bananas, green peas, avocados, mangoes, prunes, carrots, green beans, and more. She seems to like the fruits more.
We love watching her try to crawl. Tonight (11/16) we saw her do her best crawl/slide yet. She is almost there. Her brother cheers her along and it's precious. She does like to pull up on things and we joke that she wants to walk more than she does crawl.
We think she's trying to cut her first teeth. She's had some congestion and a hard time sleeping. We will wait and see.
Church and MOPS have been so wonderful. I love seeing how she interacts with others.
She is wearing 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers. She likes her bouncy seat, loves to be outside, and lights up when she sees her brother. We are working on saying "da-da". She knows our names when we ask her to find Daddy, Vann, and Mommy.
