7 months old already!

Hello everyone! Just popping in to brag about my Munchie for a bit, share some pics, and all that other proud Momma stuff!

Ivy is 7 months old today! She is still SO tiny (compared to my older kids), she is finally wearing size 3-6 month clothing, and the other day I had to adjust the rise on her diapers from the smallest setting to the second to smallest setting. But small as she is, she's TOUGH, and smart! Now that she has been sitting independantly for 3 months, her core muscles are incredible, and she will now do sit ups... if her head is on any incline at all she can sit up from a laying position without using her hands for leverage - it is quite creepy, looks a bit like something out of a bad vampire movie!

Speaking of vampires, we still have no teeth, but red bumps on her gums that come and go where you can see where the teeth will be... as they were a few month back when this started, it's her upper eyeteeth that look like they will come through first.

Not crawling yet either, which is just fine with me ... she gets into enough already! The co-ordination is just not there yet, she gets up on hands and knees, then moves either her hands (and just stretches her legs out behind her) or her legs (and forgets to move her hands, faceplanting into the floor). But she's a rolling, scootching, spinning terror at times, so I'm in no rush to see her actually crawl! She also will pull herself to standing position any time she can get a good grab on anything stationary, be it a laundry basket, the side of the couch, an older siblings leg, the dog ... pretty funny to see, since she's so short, and she tends to get excited that she's up, let go nd topple over, but she'll learn!

Sleep - thats something we don't do. Nothing to brag about there, just for other parents of "wakeful babies" it sucks, I swear it will get better, my older two never slept either. But it pretty much bites while it is happening. She takes one 2 hours nap a day if she is laying ON me. Otherwise naps are 7-12 minutes (not exagerating) and she sleeps no longer then 2 hours at a stretch at night.

Eating - Ivy has a HUGE appitite, and refuses to eat anything bland. no baby food for her! Her favorite foods are: pasta of any type, garlic bread, hummus, red peppers, blueberries, yogurt and popsicles... she doesn't care what is frozen as long as it is frozen, so I puree veggies and fruits amd freeze them in molds for her. She's still breastfed as well, and I'm still pumping for another family too.

So, thanks for letting me brag and update, sorry it ghot so long as usual. Here's a few new pics of my itty bitty pretty one!

Mmmm, coffee cup!

Got into Sissy's bubble gum (no worries, she was being closely watched!)

    I love hearing Ivy's updates! Especially since she is so close in age to avery and is also a girl :) sorry about the sleep difficulties...sleep has been a struggle with us too. It's amazing to watch them practice their skills and learn new things constantly. I am SO with you on the no-crawling-yet thing. I am happy to wait because once they start they won't stop!

    Oh, Goobie! She is so beautiful. I must be hormonal (do they start getting stronger again?) because I cry nearly every time I read baby updates or a birth story. :) I love all the photos, especially the one of her holding the "Camp Day" cup. She has beautiful eyes. You can see her personality - she is petite and sweet, but strong. She won't be one to let others walk all over her. That's a nice combination. She reminds me of the Shakespeare quote, "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" from a Midsummer Night's Dream...
    Thanks for sharing!

    Being a mommy has been the best thing by far in this life. I'd have 10 if I could, but I'm older.....So, I am going for one or two more! Most likely just one. :)

    Just realized I didn't put it down - we have not had her weighed recently, but I stood on the scale with then without her, and we think she's right around the 16 pound mark - where my other kiddos were at about 3 months!

    LOL want some of them?! I run a daycare so I have toys for all age ranges all over my house all the time. So my bookshelves are cluttered, my craft drawers no longer close, and there is stuff everywhere, I just tell people "excuse the mess, my kids were making memories"
