What a joy! This little seven month old girl is still smiling! She's a squealer, a giggler, and a bubble blower. She's so happy that random people in the grocery store stop me to tell me how blessed I am to have such a sweet baby. But, I already knew that!
At seven months, Hollin:
*has two front, bottom teeth breaking through
*has eaten oatmeal, butternut squash, mango, avacado, and mum mums
*plays with a sippy cup of water while I'm feeding her solids. she's gotten much better at actually drinking some water out of it.
*wears 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers
*sticks out her tongue when she grins
*rolls more and pushes way up. she scooted a little the other day...backwards.
*is sitting up on her own better, but I still have to stay pretty close
*slept through the night once, but usually wakes up once or twice. She is great about eating and then going right back down
*takes a short morning nap and a one to three hour afternoon nap...usually closer to one hour than three
*rubs her eyes when she's sleepy. She also rolls her wrists around (same motion as knocking on a door). I've only noticed that she does this when I'm rocking her to sleep.
*is great at entertaining herself. She likes her playmat, baby einstien jumper, and the kickin' coaster. She has also started sitting in the chicco clip-on high chair. Now she can hang out in the kitchen while I'm getting Zane's lunch fixed, loading the dishwasher, etc. It's great!
*has started scratching everything, just like Zane did. These kids are very interested in textures.
*squeals and coos, but no 'words' yet
*gets SO excited when Zane gives her attention
