I know I say this every single month... but I don't know how it is even remotely possible that this girl is already seven months old. I mean... come on. Still searching for that magical potion that slows everything down and makes things move just a bit slower so that I can take it all in and remember every single aspect of this time in our life.
Brooke's quirks this month...
.You still have not been to the doctor for your six month shots (SOMEBODY dropped the ball on getting everything squared away with Tricare and Deers. I will not name any names... but mama can't do anything when it comes to you and your sister without daddy... soooooo. I digress.) so I don't know how much you weigh or how tall you are. I suppose I could do it myself... but meh.
.You are wearing 6 to 9 month and 9 month clothing and you are firmly in size 3 diapers. We had to wear an old size 4 the other day when mommy ran out of diapers for you (second child problems...) and you were swimming in it. Luckily SAMs club is close to home.
.You sit up by yourself. Although you are still a bit unsteady sometimes.
.You ride in the shopping cart and sit in a highchair when out and about.
.You eat an entire container of sitting up babyfood. So the big container at lunch and dinner. You mainly eat fruit but so far have not straight up turned anything down.
.You do not like food of substance. You got a bite of french fry while in Springfield and acted like you were choking to death. Same goes for almost everything else you've tried that isn't pureed.
.You love the exersaucer. And stand up in it... so your leg strength is getting pretty good.
.You pull your knees up when you are laying on your belly but haven't quite gotten the forward motion down yet. THANK GOODNESS. Mama is NOT ready for that yet.
.You now sleep in your crib like the big girl you are. You had no problems transitioning. Which cannot be said for your sister...
.You still take two naps a day but have started fighting them a bit harder. You nap best in the truck going somewhere. But still get in a 45 minute morning one and hour to two hour afternoon one at home.
.You are almost always ready for bed no later than 8. Sometimes as early as 6:30.
.You still nurse in the morning, before naps and before bed. And still require a quiet room with little activity.
.You are still sporting amazing rolls but your hair is laying flatter this month. It is THICK and dark. As is your complexion still. You have different undertones than your sister does.
.You are Daddy's number 1 fan and think everything your sister does is hilarious.
.You are on the go the second you are put down and a busy body pretty much all of the time.
.You picked up growling and blowing bubbles and are always babbling away.
.You are still my easy going girl.
This last month was a big one with lots of changes. My Brookie is no longer a sweet little infant.. she is definitely growing up. And I am very very sad.
