Evie is Seven Months Old

*Evie's six month check-up wasn't scheduled until after our vacation.  She was 6 1/2 months during her visit.  Therefore, this post is a 6-7 month update.

Evie turned Seven months old on June 29, 2012.

Weight:  16.9 lbs. (50%)
Height:  25 1/2 in. (25%)
Clothes/Diaper: 6-9 months/Size 3

Sleeping Patterns:  Evie still goes to bed at 6:30pm.  She typically wakes around 6:15am.  She slept in until 7am one day last week! It felt like a little vacation for me! Ha!  She has pretty much dropped her third nap, and is napping at 8am, and noon.  I sometimes try to schedule an errand in the late afternoon, because I know that she'll sleep in her car seat. Each nap typically lasts between 1 hr., 15 min to 2 hours. We had a couple of weeks of adjusting, once we returned from our trip, but I know now she thrives better on a schedule.  She loves to sleep on her tummy, and does almost always.  She still also sleeps with her pacifier.  Thankfully, she is now able to grab it, and put it in her mouth.

Eating Habits:  Evie has 4 bottles per day, and is eating solids 2-3 times per day.  She drinks between 7 1/2 to 8 oz. per feeding. She is currently now, working her way through fruits.  She's had no issues or allergies thus far.  She's a great eater!

New discoveries:  Toys, toys, and more toys!  She is sitting independently, and loves to play with anything within reach.  We are working on big brother letting her play with his stuff. :)  Evie is also constantly grabbing my jewelry.  She has yanked out an earring, one too many times!  I really don't wear earrings or necklaces too much anymore.  

Milestones: Evie sits great, with no support.  She is trying so hard to crawl, and I think she will soon. She has taken a liking to army crawling.  She lays her head on her bumper to sleep, and is now fully capable of falling asleep on her own.  She's continually doing well with making different sounds too.

Places Evie loves:  Her bouncy seat, being held, Bumbo seat, exersaucer, jumper, and stroller.  She also loves being outside.  Both kids are enjoying the neighborhood walks and pool.

Special Friends:  Big Brother Bobby and Parker Wade.

Current Events:  Mud-slinging between Obama and Romney campaigns, 2012 Tour de France,  Olympics Pre-trials, and one of the hottest summers on record.

What We Did this Day:  Ran errands.

Here's Bobby at seven months:

And, here's his seven month update!
