Seven Months









Size Diapers: Size Three. Going to get her a size four the next time we make a target trip. 

Size Clothes: 6-9 and some 6-12. 

Eyes: Still blue with a light hazel/yellowish around her pupil. 

Hair: Brown with a little bit of reddish tint. 

Sleeping: She's sleeping throughout the night. Yay! She'll go to bed anywhere between 7-9 p.m. and wake up around 7:00-8:30ish a.m. When she wakes up I make her a bottle, she plays for 30 minutes or so, and is ready for her morning nap. She usually has around 3-4 naps a day. 

Eating: She's been drinking 7oz (Gerber Soothe) and eats Earth's Best organic oatmeal for breakfast. She usually leaves around 1-2oz of formula but will drink the rest a little later. She loves banana in her oatmeal and we also tried pears which she LOVES. I usually put fruit in her oatmeal every other day or so. So far she has tried.. green beans, banana, pears, sweet potato and carrots. My dad gave her a little bit of his dessert the other night and she smiled and said "mmmm." Hahaha.. naughty grandpa! But I'll admit, it was the cutest thing ever. So I may or may not have told him to give her another small bite. 

Milestones: 

  • She says DADA!!! She doesn't quite know that Robby is dada (I mean she knows he's her dada but she doesn't know what dada means yet. I'll just stop! I need to go to bed) but she does say the word which makes me so incredibly happy. 
  • She has TWO teeth coming in :)))) 
  • She eats fruit from her fresh food feeder. Don't take that thing away! She'll scream. 
  • She can pull/reach her little hanging toys on her exersaucer. 
  • She can sit-up in the shopping cart. 
  • Robby was sick and coughing (Halloween Eve to be exact) and she started fake coughing. She's hilarious and so dang smart!!!! 
  • She touched the snow for the very first time on November 11th. 
  • Our seventh month old is now giving me attitude. I posted a video on Instagram. I was trying to fix her headband and she gave me attitude. Grumpy eyebrows and all. 
  • Today I asked her if she wanted her pacifier and she opened her mouth without even seeing the pacifier. My baby girl is understanding words :) 

Nicknames: We call her by her name. Sounds so strange but I do call her "bubus" a lot. Don't know why.


Her/Our Loves:
Pears
To scream when she's happy (yes, people stare! I think it's adorable haha)
Little Baby Bum videos on YouTube
Sitting in the shopping cart
When daddy flies her around like Tinkerbell
BATH TIME!!! I bought her these bath letters and numbers and she loves them. Well, she loves chewing on them. There's already teeth marks on them. She also loves leaving notes for grandpa and sending notes to uncle R.J.! It's all her though. NOT ME!!! ;) 
Her teething medicine
FaceTiming

Hates: 
Being left alone
She hates it when we put clothes on her
Teething :(
When I take her fresh food feeder away
Tummy time. We are trying to practice crawling but she's not a big fan of tummy time. Never has been! I'm honestly in NO RUSH for her to start crawling. Not because she'll get into everything, but I just don't want her growing so fast :(

I'm really looking forward for her first Thanksgiving and Christmas. We got her some cute Christmas pajamas that I'll give her on Christmas Eve. My mom use to let us open one gift on Christmas Eve, which was always Christmas pajamas. So I'm passing the tradition on to my little one. When she gets older it'll be fun to add Christmas movies, popcorn, hot cocoa and a candy cane to the gift. I'm also really excited for her to meet Santa Claus. I bought her a really cute outfit just to meet him! 

We also got her her very own Christmas stocking!!! What is Santa putting in your babies stocking? ;) I've been waiting my whole life for these moments SO I CAN NOT WAIT for them and I'll be extremely sad when all her FIRST holidays are over. Daddy won't be here on Christmas once again :( Yes, he's going to miss her very first Christmas and we also got an offer on the house so we won't be having Christmas at our house which bums me out. Oh well. Got to count our blessings right?! ;)

I am also planning her FIRST BIRTHDAY party! I already bought a couple things for it haha. I mean, it is five months away and we all know how FAST five months goes by.

Six Months








Size Diapers: Size Three. We switched to the honest brand. The pampers had a strange smell when she would pee. 

Size Clothes: 6-9 and some 6-12. 

Eyes: Still blue with a light hazel/yellowish around her pupil. 

Hair: Brown with a little bit of reddish tint. 

Sleeping: She's been sleeping A LOT better. She's usually ready for bed around 8-9pm and usually sleeps till 7 being the earliest and 9:30 being the latest. Once she wakes up, we give her a bottle, she plays for about a half an hour and is ready for her morning nap. Her naps don't last long at all though but that's okay. We're pretty lucky with the amount of sleep we've been getting, so I'm not complaining one bit. 

Eating: She's been drinking 6oz (Gerber Soothe) and eats Earth's Best organic oatmeal for breakfast. We've been putting banana in her oatmeal (every other day usually) and she LOVES IT!!! We have also tried fresh green beans (I pureed them in the blender) for dinner which wasn't a big hit. I may have to re-introduce that to her again. We tried carrots (Sunday 10-11-15) and she loved those. She made the funniest facial expression at first but enjoyed it after that first bite. 

Milestones: 

  • SHE CAN SIT UP!!! Yay.
  • She blows raspberries which is sooo cute! 
  • Robby stuck his tongue out last night and made a farting noise and she tried to copy him. 
  • She gets super excited when her videos start on YouTube. We love the little baby bum channel. She mostly watches educational videos. 
  • Eating solids. 
  • Rolling from her stomach to her back a couple times. 

Nicknames: We call her by her name. Sounds so strange but I do call her "bubus" a lot. Don't know why.

Five Months






My baby girl is five months. FIVE MONTHS you guys!!!! How is this even possible?! I know I shouldn't be thinking about this but next month she's going to be six months. Half a YEAR!!!! Ugh.. depressing! I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm glad she's healthy and growing but this whole time-thing is no friend of mine. I miss that little newborn babe :(  

Size Diapers: Size Two. 

Size Clothes: 3 Months (three months is getting a bit small length wise) & 3 to 6 months. 

Eyes: They are still blue but Robby and I see hazel around her pupils. Him and I must be colorblind because no one else seems to see it. Not even her doctor ha.

Hair: Brown with a little bit of reddish tint. Her hair is growing and I'm LOVING IT. She has the cutest chickadee hair! 

Sleeping: Ehh.. She usually wakes up around 4 or 5 wanting a bottle. As soon as we give it to her, her eyes starts to close. If she seems reallllyy sleepy then I'll take the bottle away and put her back in her bed. 

Eating: She's been drinking 6oz (Gerber Soothe) and eats Earth's Best organic oatmeal for breakfast and dinner. We are selling our house so things have been pretty hectic, but when I get some time I want to mash up a little bit of banana to mix in with her oatmeal. I think she's ready for another ounce as well. 

Milestones: 

  • Rolls from back to belly and is learning how to roll from her belly to her back. 
  • She's not the best at it yet but she can grab her pacifier and stick it in her mouth. 
  • She's been grabbing her right ear a lot. I thought she was grabbing it because of it hurting from teething, but her doctor said she recognizes she has a ear, that's why she's playing with it. 
  • She chews on her toes! ha ha. 
  • She recognizes her bottle and spoon/bowl when it's oatmeal time. 
  • She reaches out for her bottle and is learning how to grab it. 
  • She recognizes her name.
  • She got her FIRST rash :( I bought her a soft faux fur blanket from Nordstrom's and when I laid her on it while I was straightening my hair, I started to notice the left side of her face turning red. By the time we went to the doctor's it was REALLY red and hot. We returned the blanket and it went away by the next morning. 
  • She's starting to arch her back.

Nicknames: I've been calling her by her name and I call her "love" a lot. For Example: "you tired love?!" :)


Her/Our Loves:
To smile. Smile at her and she'll more than likely smile back at ya :)
Exersaucer.
We just got her the violet colored bumbo.
I'm pretty sure she has a favorite Disney Princess already. Ariel! One of my favorites. I sing "Part of Your World" to her almost every day and she'll stop and listen to me.

When her blanket touches her face when she's trying to go to sleep. She loves her Lou Lou & Company swaddle blanket. 
Earth's Best Oatmeal.
Her bottle.

I didn't think she would take another pacifier because she's had the same one since she was born, but we bought her the Natursutten Pacifiers and she LOVES IT. Thank goodness because I love those pacifiers!
I've been loving Madeline's Box pacifier clips.
We love Billy Bibs.
Her fingers. She hasn't been talking much and I think it's because she always has a hand (or two!) in her mouth. 
Her feet.

Hates: 
Being left alone.
When we get out of the bath.
When I put clothes on her. I have to do it quick! If she's in a good mood then she's okay.

She gets fussy when she's tired.

Four Months





We didn't get home till later so the lighting was horrible :(

Size Diapers: Size Two. 

Size Clothes: Some 0-3, 3 Months & some 3 to 6 months. 

Eyes: They are still blue! Crossing my fingers they stay blue but sometimes I see a little yellowish/hazel wanting to pop through. 

Hair: Brown with a little bit of reddish tint. She lost a lot of her hair but it's starting to grow back. I'm loving the little peach fuzz though. 

Sleeping: She was sleeping the whole night but now she's waking up around 3 a.m. wanting food. I give her a bottle and she usually falls back asleep. Have any advice? Is she going through four month sleep regression? Help!

Eating: She's been drinking 6oz and I just started feeding her baby oatmeal. She LOVES the oatmeal but she cries because I can't feed it to her fast enough.

Milestones: These are 3 month & 4 month milestones combined. 

Her hand eye coordination is improving. She's able to look at her hand. 

She's trying to sit up. She was even scooting out of her car seat when we were trying to eat dinner. I had her sitting in there without the buckles on. 

She puts her hand in her mouth and chews on her fingers and fist. She's been drooling a ton! She loves holding and chewing her burp cloth. 

She's also been putting her hands on my face and she's touching things that are in front of her. She's getting better at holding onto toys. 

She recognizes her bottle and binkey. She's been trying to hold on to her own bottle. 

She watches her learning videos so intensely. She doesn't take her eyes off of the screen. 

She ROLLED OVERRR!!!! I saw her roll over and went to grab my ipad since my phone had died. I didn't get her first time rolling over on video but she rolled over again, which I was able to get on video for her daddy to see ;) 

She laughs and giggles. She's also ticklish! I can't wait for her to start laughing more. 

Nicknames: I've been calling her by her name.

Funny Moments: I think it's hilarious when she's eating her oatmeal. She starts to cry when I go to get more oatmeal on the spoon and as soon as I give her more oatmeal, she goes "mmmff.. mmmff mmm." I guess you have to be there :)

I also love when she tries to grab my face and I get a nice slobbery KISS!!! I can kiss my baby all day.
