7 Months

Ellington, you are 7 months old now! What you you up to at 7 months?
  • You wear 6-9 month clothes and a size 3 diaper.
  • You have started sitting up for a few seconds before falling over!
  • You just started sleeping without your Miracle Blanket. It takes you MUCH longer to fall asleep now. You seems to have a lot of fun playing in your crib!
  • Your favorite song is the Itsy Bitsy Spider-with motions of course!
  • You still love fruit waaaay more than veggies. Bananas are still #1 for you.
  • Your separation anxiety is getting a little bit better. You have let Mommy stay in church and Sunday School for the last two Sundays!
  • You take 3 smaller bottles during the day (4-6 ounces) and one big one before bed (8 ounces).
  • You have baby food 3 times a day.
  • You still take 3 short naps a day, but Mommy is really trying to encourage you to just take 2 that are a little bit longer!
  • You have started using your hands so much lately to accomplish a purpose! You are now more able to play with your toys and have figured out how to play in your exersaucer. You also tried several times at supper a couple of nights ago to pull Mommy's plate off the table!
  • You go to bed between 7-7:45 (it just depends on when your last nap was) and wake up anywhere between 6-7:15 (it just depends on if you've woken up during the night to eat...if you have, you sleep later).
  • You sleep through the night some nights, but not always. You are old enough to make it through the night, but Mommy can't stand to just let you cry in the middle of the night so she usually gets up and feeds you if you are really upset.

Ellington, we love you so much and it is such a joy to watch you grow!


  1. i still love those stickers for the onesies!!! such a cool thing.

    her smile is so sweet! so many sweet milestones... it just reminds me of how quickly they grow. what a beautiful baby girl you have!

    so happy the separation anxiety is getting better. it's so hard! yay for getting to sit through an entire service and sunday school!

  2. yay for a new post! e looks so sweet:) glad i got to see y'all this weekend, and miss y'all already!

  3. I love her month birthday pics! I want you to do a post where you put all of them up so we can compare and see how she's grown!

  4. I simply don't know if I can allow her to be seven months....that is like headed to not being a baby anymore....I don't know why, but seven seems really different. Oh well, as much as I like babies, we don't really want her stay one.
