{amelia}: seven months

These pictures are getting harder and harder to do! Sitting her up was the easiest solution :)

You can find her past updates here:

One month
Two months
Three months 
Four months 
Five months
Six months

Weight/height: not sure on either, as she hasn't been weighed since her six month appointment. I'd guess she is over 17lbs now.

Hair/eyes: her hair keeps getting blonder and blonder! It's also starting to grow. Eyes are still very blue.

  • playing hide and seek
  • if you do silly dances for her
  • the tags on anything
  • jumping in the jolly jumper
  • leaning sideways to look at people when you are holding her
  • babbling/squeeling 
  • bathtime

  • being tired
  • depending on the day, getting her diaper changed 
  • having her face cleaned
Eating: still breastfeeding and a bottle of breast milk before bed (since we got home from Ontario, she has been fighting her bottle for some reason). We have also started to introduce more food. She's had: green beans, peas, carrots, blueberries, apples, prunes, peaches, chicken, avocado, banana, sweet potato.

Sleeping: before we left for Ontario, she started waking up between 3-5am and would only settle if I nursed her. I decided to up the amount of milk she gets before bed and that seemed to help. She didn't sleep very well in Ontario (probably so many new places and not our same routine) and I'm hoping to get her back on track now that we are home. She still goes down between 7-8pm (usually closer to 7pm) and has 3-4 naps per day. They range anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. She is a big tummy sleeper!

  • went on her third and fourth plane ride 
  • got to experience the beach- eating sand included while in Ontario
  • went on the swings for the first time and loved it!
  • wears size 3 swaddlers during the day and size 3 baby dry at night
  • wears mostly 6 month onesies and pjs, but the pjs are starting to get too small
  • no teeth yet (but constantly putting stuff in her mouth) and no desire to crawl
  • loves to sit up and is getting stronger and not falling as much
  • is so curious and loves to watch everything going on around her 


  1. Such a sweet girl! LOVE her bog smiles! :) I'm sure she will get back on track now that you are home for a while. The sideways lean is so cute!!

  2. I can't get over how beautiful her eyes are. She's just the prettiest little thing. I love seeing her sitting up! I remember the days of the sideways lean. Oh man, with my chunky monkey, that got heavy in a hurry!

  3. The sideways lean is hilarious! Such a funny girl! She has the most beautiful eyes! 7 months already is crazy!!

  5. How is she 7 months?! I love her eyes! They are yours I think :)

  6. Oh she is cute! She has the best smile and I just love her blue eyes! And that "side lean" photo is awesome! She must have some great core strength. :) I hope that you get her back on a sleep schedule - I am sure being in a new environment really threw her off!

  7. She is such a happy girl! I can't help but smile everytime I see a photo of her smiling!!
