Layla is 7 Months!!

Well by now you are 7-3/4 months, but regardless, you are still 7 months! My goodness I love you so much!  Your little personality is coming out more and more everyday and I love it.

Let's see. You still wear a size 4 diaper. You have a big round bottom! It is sweet and squishy! You wear 18 months, although some are too small depending on brand, you also wear 18-24 months and a lot of 24 months. You are at a weird size. You have rolls upon rolls on your thighs, so everything fits tight on them, so 24 months work better, but if it is a dress a 24 month is too big. It is tricky! You weigh 24.9 pounds according to my scale.

You are still nursing and unless something major happens that will continue for at least another 5-7 months. Sometimes you will eat your oatmeal or rice cereal for breakfast and sometimes you won't. It's funny how one day you love it and the next you make the funniest faces and turn your head and won't even allow it near your mouth. You LOVE pears and bananas and you just moved up to the 2nd stage foods and you are eating a lot of mixed fruits. You HATE peas, you spit them out if I can even trick you into taking a bite. You eat puffs and yogurt melts and are doing a wonderful job of getting them into your mouth.

For the last month I have been saying you are going to crawl "any day now". Well, still no official crawling, but you still do your inchworm or military crawl and can get around like that with no problem. You get up on a four and rock back and forth and I just know you are about to take off crawling, but them you go back down on your tummy and propel yourself forward my pushing off the ground and stretch your arms out and move forward. You also can roll very strategically and get exactly where you want.

You have started trying to pull up. I see some bumps and bruises in our near future!

If I take something away from you you throw a fit and start crying. If I give it back to you you will stop. It is amazing to watch this happen with a baby. Already working her parents!

This week you have started saying "Mama mama mama". You usually say it in threes and there is absolutely no association between the word and me. So, yes you saw Mama, but it is just jabbering. You don't make hardly any d sounds, so we haven't heard Dada yet.

You love to play patty cake, peek-a-boo and have Mommy clap your hands. If you are crying I can sing "Jesus Loves Me" and you stop. Ella sings this to you all the time and you love it. You LOVE your big sister. You love seeing her in the mornings and just laugh when she runs around the house acting silly.

You are still such a good sleeper. You go to bed at 9 p.m. and wake up at around 9:15-9:30 a.m. (Sometimes you sleep until 10 a.m.). You take a nap from 11:30- 2:30 and another evening nap from about 5:30-6:45.

I love you sweet girl and can't wait to see what next month will bring!
