7 months

7 months (yesterday) 

Not our typical "monthly picture", but 1. she hates changing. She hates being on the changing table in general, it's taking away play time. So I don't wanna make her mad by making her put on a onesie for 5 minutes. 2. she doesn't hold still for longer than one second. So goodbye decent poses, hello blurs and weird positions. 

Height: About 27 inches
Weight: 15 lbs 4 oz
Feeding: Breastfed + about 2 Tbsp solids twice a day. In the morning I give her 1 Tbsp of fruit + 1 Tbsp oatmeal cereal and for supper time I give her 1 Tbsp of a vegetable + 1 Tbsp of rice cereal and sometimes a little bit of pureed meat (1 tsp or less). 
Sleeping: She's gotten better. At ECFE the past two weeks we've been talking a lot about sleep and I learned how important it is for her to fall asleep on her own, without us having to rock her or put her in her snugamonkey, etc. She sleeps 10-12 hours at night, but has been getting up about twice during the night, probably because she's teething again. She takes two naps during the day that are each an hour or more. 
Clothes size: Mostly wearing 6 months. We have some 6-9 months she wears and I'm starting to put her in 9 months stuff just for fun. She can still wear her 3-6 month onesies too. 
Diaper size: Still size 2
Development: Doesn't stop. Everyday she is doing something new. She has started to use her little vibrating seat to stand herself up. YEP, stand herself up. She holds onto the coffee table and stands. So now she crawls at a speedy fast rate and can stand herself up. There are no limits to what she can get into and sabotage anymore. We are constantly amazed at how fast she can get into something. I set her down in her bedroom so I can go to the bathroom, and a couple seconds later I hear her crawling into our bedroom trying to follow me. Oh yeah, she is also my shadow. 
Personality: She's hilarious. She loves to babble and be loud. Happiest baby ever. I can't begin to count how many times she has hit her head on something and didn't even make a peep. She might be invincible. She is curious and constantly exploring, as well as constantly making sure I'm within eyesight. Little mama's girl follows me everywhere. It makes me laugh :) Oh and she tried to hold some little boy's hand at ECFE and succeeded. So she's a little flirt, too.

Mira's favorite things:
-Her sippy cup with juice
-Getting put in her carseat when we're at home (that means we're getting out of the house to do some fun stuff and be around people)
-Food time. Especially solid foods. She gets soo impatient when I'm preparing it and bangs on the tray and pants. She still gets impatient with the boob food time too.
-Taking the DVD's off the DVD rack and making a mess
-Trying to eat the DVD's
-Attempting to crawl into her carseat
-The vacuum. The second I turn it on, she makes a b-line for it and doesn't let it out of her sight. 

Mira's not-so-favorite things:
-Getting put in her carseat when we have to leave somewhere (that means we have to go to boring home and probably take a nap). She squirms and pretty much makes it impossible for us to strap her in.
-Getting her face wiped off
-Getting dressed and getting her diaper changed. She rolls around and tries to crawl away. Makes it pretty interesting when she has a messy diaper...
