My little stinker is 7 months old, today. Every time I write one of these monthly posts, I am in disbelief of how fast time goes by. However, I am just as ecstatic I am able to be with her every day to watch her as she grows.
We worked on getting her to go to bed almost 2 hours earlier than she usually does, so Mommy and Daddy can spend time together every evening before bedtime. It didn’t take long at all- after making her stay up (a.k.a. we entertained her for almost 2 hours straight) and skip her last nap of the evening. She now gets story time at 9pm, cereal bottle at 9:30, and is out for the count by 10pm. Once we decide to start sleep training her (we’re thinking this week so pray for us!) we will put her to bed about an hour earlier than we do now.
In other 7 month news; she has learned how to blow air in our faces. She inhales (making the funniest inhaling sounds ever) then she puckers up her lips, and blows the air out. It’s hilariously adorable. She also likes to be held so she can stand on her legs. She can’t do it without us helping her but she quite determined. She can also sit on her own without any assistance which is pretty cool.
Since the last post when she had her first meal (peas) she has now also tried carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes, avocados, bananas, pears, and apples. She likes them all, but her favorites would definitely be sweet potatoes, carrots, and bananas. When she’s eating her food and she’s REALLY enjoying it, she does her “I’m so happy to be eating dance.” (She’s for sure my kid because I dance and hum when I enjoy my food LOL) Big brother, Ares, also tries his hardest to clean up after her too…
Oh, and did I mention she has a tooth coming in?! We can officially see it when she smiles big enough for us to see her bottom gums. She’s been teething like a champ too, because she hasn’t been anymore more fussy than usual. Lucky us!
Princess J celebrated her first Christmas and NYE as well. We had a great time with family and friends on both occasions. Here go a few family pictures from both occasions; and I’ll be back in a month to update you on Miss Jordyn Denise again 🙂
