Happy Seven Month Birthday, Reagan E!
You and your brother continue to love each other. You took your first big girl bath and he joined in on the fun! You two sat in the bathtub splashing and laughing for a long time! Mommy loves to watch you two interact. Your brother has been a great big brother. He asks for you first thing every morning. He loves to give you "ugs" (hugs) and kisses. He will just randomly go love on you without us even prompting it! It's the sweetest thing ever!
We started feeding you solid foods and you have loved everything that you tried! Even if you don't particularly love something, like peaches, you will still sit there and eat! You are SO much better at eating than your brother was. We were pretty sure he was going to starve once we took the bottle away, haha! Eating the solid foods does not change your bottle routine though. You are finally back to eating 6 ounces every 4 hours. At daycare though you are a stinker and usually only eat 5 ounces every 3 hours. It's probably because you're too distracted to eat! You love to see what everyone is up to!
It is still a struggle to get you to sleep through the night. You are still waking up once, anywhere between 3:30 and 4:30. You only want to have a bottle and then you go right back to sleep. It's really not that bad, but Mommy would sure LOVE a full night's sleep! If we had the energy we would start to wean you.... it's coming soon, just not sure when! Maybe over the Holiday's before we start traveling all over the landscape! At least you go to sleep really easy around 8pm and then we wake you up to get ready for daycare at 7:30. On the weekends you wake us up around 8am. You still nap pretty well during the day and are finally starting to get into a routine where you are awake 2 hours, take a nap, awake 2 hours, take a nap, etc.
Your two bottom teeth FINALLY came through this past month! Unfortunately for you they came at the same time. You've been teething for all eternity though so it wasn't that different! You love this little gel teether that we got you. It makes those teeth hurt less! We have given you teething tablets a few times and they have helped as well.
You are such a fun and bubbly girl. You give us the biggest smiles when we go wake you up in the morning or when we come pick you up from daycare. We love your greetings! You smile at everyone you see and are just so happy and pretty! This was one of our favorite things about your brother as well. We love that we have such social babies! You're also still the queen of raspberry blowing. You crack us up. You're always blowing raspberries and soaking your shirt, haha! It's the staple of your personality!
You are wearing 6 month clothes and are about to move up to 6-9mo clothes. You still wear a lot of 3-6 because you are just a tiny girl! Well, not that tiny! You have a big Buddha belly! Haha! You don't wear shoes yet but I think you fit into a size 3. Mommy has not been the best about properly accessorizing you! ;-) We still have you in a size 2 diaper but are about to move you up since they are getting a bit snug! Your hair has gotten so much lighter this past month. The hair growing in on the underside is very blonde! Now your hair is about the same color as your brothers, a dirty blonde to light brown. It is definitely not the dark dark brown that it was when you were born! Your eyes are still a piercing shade of blue. You are just so gorgeous and Mommy and Daddy can't get over how pretty you are!
