Makayla Jo | 7 Month Update | October 9, 2012

Dear Makayla, 
You are now 7 months old! Closer to being a 1 year old then a newborn. Your age right now is definitely my favorite. You are so fun and learning new things and tricks each and every day. It is so true when everyone says every age just gets better and better! 
Height: unknown his month
Weight: unknown this month, probably around 17 lbs
Clothes: 6-9 month clothes, Some 12 month pants.

 Feeding 
 You are having about 5 bottles per day (6-8 ounces), around 7 am, 10 am, 1 pm, 4 pm, and 7 pm. 
You are also eating solids 2-3 times per day. You LOVE peas, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, apples, and pears. Sometimes you get oatmeal too, but it constipates you.
You are primarily eating home-made baby food, it is so easy for us to make a couple of batches on the weekend and freeze it. We’re stilling trying to teach you how to hold your bottle, and girl, you are LAZY!!!
Sleeping

You love to sleep just like your mommy and daddy. You go to sleep between 7:00 and 7:30 every night, and generally sleep till 7 a.m. every morning. Some days you are up at 6:30 a.m., and some days we have to wake you at 7:15 am for the day. Of course on weekends you get up at 6:30 a.m. ready to play! Bedtime routine has remained the same. Books, Bath, Bottle, Bed. You take about 2 naps per day, which can range from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours, it just depends. Your naps are still pretty unpredictable.
Personality
You are a chatterbox. Your “talking” is the cutest thing i’ve ever heard. You’ve said “mumm mumm” a few times and I count that as your first word. But, this past weekend (Oct. 13th), you started saying “Daddaaa Dadddaaa” and that is all you say now! Your dad is on cloud 9. You are such a happy girl and give the biggest, dimply smiles to anyone that will give you attention.
Play Time
You are crawling around the house, fast! You are pulling yourself to stand on the couch, coffee table, and you are even taking steps while holding on. You love your Leap Frog Activity Table so much! You also love your Little Tikes Swing we hung in the backyard. You are almost over your Jumperoo, but we can still get you to enjoy it for a short period of time. You LOVE electronics. Our phones, computers, remotes, cords, wires, you name it, if you are not supposed to have it you want it! You are climbing the stairs like crazy, we must keep the gates up! You started sitting up in the grocery cart and you love looking at everything. You are infatuated with the dishwasher and you would climb in it if we let you.

Ear Infections
So happy to say that you haven’t had an ear infection since the end of August. This is great news, you are still seeing Dr. Melissa about every 2 weeks. Still no swim lessons, I think we’ll wait till next summer.



Day Care
You still go to Day Care twice a week. I always watch on the web-cam. Last week I watched you steal a toy from another girl and then she pushed you over. It was so funny and sad at the same time. You need to learn how to stick up for yourself! We still love the staff at daycare, but one of our favorite teachers moved. We hope they can find someone really great to replace her.

Teething
We thought you were cutting some teeth last week due to extreme fussiness, however we still can’t feel/see anything (even though your Grandpa swears there is one on top).
