laurelai at seven months.

girlfriend turned seven months old and is rocking it like a boss.

 still in 0-3 month clothes but getting longer, and i've noticed her feeling heavier, though she doesn't have another weight check until next month so i don't know exactly what she weighs.  we've started trying some baby foods, but she has such a sensitive gag reflex that it's not going super well.  i've done baby-led weaning in the past with my kids, but i think we're going to try actual store-bought baby food at first, since it's so finely pureed.

she goes to bed around 8 p.m. and wakes up two or three times before 8 a.m. the next morning.  i'm getting seriously ready to sleep through the night for once, but since nursing is going so well, i don't want to mess with the schedule for now.

she's strong enough that she can crawl out of the bumbo on her own, which means she's had a bruise on her face at any given time over the last week or so.  she's strong, but maybe not the most graceful.  yet.

she's still not crawling, but she's close.  she gets up on all fours and rocks so hard she scooches the pack-n-play across the floor during naptime.  when she really wants to get going, she gets her feet up under her, but that clearly gets her nowhere.  she'll figure it out.

what a stinkin' cutie.  i could just eat her up, i love her so.
