7 months old!!

I’m a little behind in posting due to the holidays, but Emmy Cate turned 7 months!!  Our 6 month pediatrician appointment ended up being a few days before her 7 month birthday, so here are the all-important stats:  She was 17 3/4 pounds (75-80%) and 27.5” (80%) and her head circumference was 43 cm (50%).  So she has stopped growing quite as fast and is not quite as big for her age as she was at her last appointment.  She got 5 wonderful shots, inluding H1N1 and the regular flu shot so hopefully we have a well baby this winter!!

Here is what she has been up to lately:

1. Shaking her head, although she doesn’t yet know what it means

2. She understands the word “kitty” and will look around for Bits whenever we say it.  She also understands what the remote control will do so when you pick it up, she automatically looks at the TV.

3. She is eating 3 bottles a day (about 24 ozs.) and about 6-7 jars of baby food!  She is a very healthy eater and her only real dislikes so far are bananas!  Her favorites are yogurt and oatmeal, apricots, carrots, chicken, turkey, and the cheddar corn puff gerber graduates.  She isn’t really into bottles anymore and much prefers solids.  She is getting the sippy cup thing down, but she still has a way to go before mastering it!

4. Still sleeping from 8-8, not waking up any longer for any bottles (yay for good sleep for mom and dad!!), then taking two good 1.5 – 2 hour naps a day.

5. Smiling, smiling, smiling!  You just look at her and she is grinning!!  If you get the camera out, then you get even bigger smiles!!
