Penny - Seven Months

Penny - you're seven months old!

Wasn't I just writing your six month update? There is no way that you are seven months old now! Every day you do something new and exciting, we love it. You're such a chubby baby and everyone says so, but we love it. You're ADD WEIGHT now! Not sure how long you are, but you're nearing 28", I would guess. Your hair is light brown and your eyes are gray-blue still.
You're still comfortably wearing 6-9 month clothes, though I fit you in some 6 month outfits still. I'm guessing by the end of this month I'll have your 9 month clothes washed and ready to be worn. You usually wear shorts and t-shirts, just like me! A new thing I do now is put your hair in pig tails because it's long enough.
Your eating habits have changed! You're nursing great, but not nursing to sleep for most naps. You decided to stop doing that recently. I have to say I like it much better! You eat about every 3 hours, except at night, when you go 4-6 hours. In addition to nursing, you're eating solid foods now and having a blast at it. You love avocado, all fruit, sweet potatoes, squash... well, pretty much anything we put in front of you! We've even giving you some beef and you loved it.
Nights are rough again, but I suppose it could be worse. Now that you can roll over, you're a bit more comfortable because you can get to your stomach easily. Sometimes you get wedged against the edge of the bed and cry out for help! Naps are still about 45 minutes, but sometimes you surprise us and sleep longer. We're working on getting to 3 naps a day now and staying up longer in between.
Oh yeah, and you roll over like a champ now! You get to the floor and roll all over the living room. You still prefer sitting up and playing with your toys, though. You're just not a mover and that's ok with us.
This month has been a bit easier on us. We've been filling our days with reading books, trips to the store and pool, and cleaning the house. You want to be by our sides all the time. If we put you down, you start crying. But you're such a happy baby otherwise! You're quick to smile, you love talking (you say Mamamama all day!), and do the cutest things. You've become quite a personality!
I say it every month, but I just love watching you grow. Every day is something new and it's been so wonderful!
