Charlotte is such a big girl! She has learned so much in the last months since her 6 month post. It's crazy how fast she picks things up. She's crawling, scooting, getting into everything and anything she can get her hands on, teething, not sleeping, and growing growing growing...
CHARLOTTE'S 7 MONTH
18 lbs. 13 oz.
27 inches tall/long
Well obviously I am just a tad bit biased because I'm her mom but she is the cutest little baby girly in the world. Just had to point that out! ;)
But honestly, my poor little girl has had a rougher month than usual. She is teething, we moved so she'e way out of her comfort zone, and I hate to say it but since we have hardwood floors now pretty much all over the house she keeps bonking her little chin on the floor and it's just so sad. Our apartment was mostly carpeted before so that's what she was used to. I've been trying to keep her on a soft blanket but...let's be real...she doesn't stay in one spot for more than 2 seconds. Ha!
So...remember that post I made about how amazing I think sleep training is? I still think it's awesome but after a month of sleeping through the night...she no longer does. Ha! Basically her schedule is...nothing. She doesn't have one. We moved two days after Christmas and it was hard for all of us, especially her, to sleep in a new place. She's also smack dab in the middle of teething. I decided to wait a few weeks after moving into our new house to start sleep training her again. Her naps are sporadic as well. She just naps when she's tired or when we get in the car. But usually, there are only 2 or 3 naps per day: a morning nap, an afternoon nap, and sometimes an early evening nap depending on how cranky she is around that time.
The only thing that regularly happens is that we try to start her bedtime routine around 8pm. She eats, gets a bath, I put lotion on her, pj's, maybe a story, then I nurse her to sleep.
She still nurses on demand, and will for a few more months at least. I now give her Gerber oatmeal cereal in the morning after I've had my breakfast, and then at night before her bath I give her more oatmeal cereal and a baby food of choice.
Charlotte is in 9 month and 12 month clothing. She's a big baby!
She is juuust about to finish up her size 2 diapers and then in about a week she'll be in size 3. I know...I'm cheap.
Like I said last month, I feel great! I don't feel "postpartum" anymore. I feel completely back to myself which is awesome! I'm still taking my prenatal vitamins because I am still nursing but other than that I'm just...me!
