Emmie - 7 Months


Happy 7 months! And what an exciting month it was! We were actually in Atlanta on your 7 month birthday, thus the delay. You have grown and changed so much in the past month that I can barely believe it. You are SO mobile now and are constantly on the move. Every day, you become less of a "baby" and more of a "person". It is so much fun to watch! Here is what has been going on with you lately:

Loves: Going on walks, swinging at the park, meeting new people and having them talk to you, eating, feeding yourself, being tickled, being tossed in the air, being held upside down

Eating: Nursing 4-5 times per day and eating solids twice per day. I'm pretty sure you're ready to drop to 4 nursing sessions and will be dropping the fifth session this week. You have been eating solids like a champ lately. You absolutely LOVE feeding yourself puffs and yogurt melts and are taking down those plus 4 oz of baby food at breakfast, then puffs/yogurt melts plus 8 oz of baby food at dinner. I can't wait to start making the transition to "real food" in the next couple of months. 

Sleeping:  You still sleep so well! 11-12 hours at night (lately 12 -- ever since we put the blinds in your room back up...it must have been the early morning light waking you up) and taking two naps per day. Your morning nap is usually around 9-10:30 and afternoon nap is 2:30-4 or so.

Clothes: 6-9 month/6-12 month. Size 2 diapers. 

Firsts: Lots of firsts this month! First time eating "real" solids (non-purees), first time flying on a plane (you did great, as expected!), first time pulling up (and now you do it all the time...uh oh!), first time waving "bye-bye", first time swinging at the park, first time visiting the mountains, first time meeting your cousin Baylor and Aunt Jenni.

Here's what happens when we try to change your diaper. You immediately turn over and try to crawl away!

And our photoshoot was a bit of a challenge this month. 

 Smiling and posing...

Oh, let me grab that camera!

What?! The camera is not for me? Alright, see ya later!

So we move to the floor to try to get you to cooperate! 

 And that lasts for a minute or so.

 Hiking in Gatlinburg. The Smoky Mountains!

So excited to be with family in ATL.

Swinging at the park for the first time. 

What a fun month! As much as I hate watching time fly by and you grow up, I love the sweet little girl you are becoming!  


  1. Could this baby be any cuter?! I loved seeing her at my shower and during our shopping trip. Can't wait until Hadley can join in on the fun! You need to get her the Boston terrier onesie so she and Hadley can match!

  2. she clearly seems like a lady on the go and nothing will stop her!! what a cutie
