Caroline – 7 Months

Sweet Caroline turned 7 months on Tuesday, and here I am blogging about it two days later! We just got back from an amazing vacation to Los Angeles, where we stayed in a beautiful beach house in Malibu and took an awesome excursion to Disneyland. Needless to say, blogging was on the back burner! However, Miss Caroline is getting bigger and bigger. I can’t believe how fast her first year is flying by.

Caroline Lately:

  • 16 pounds. At her last doctor’s appointment, she was in the 32nd percentile for height and weight. She’s a petite little thing!
  • Wearing 6 month clothes and they fit comfortably.
  • Still in size 3 diapers
  • Her eczema isn’t flaring up as much lately, although I do still have to give her scalp a coconut oil rub down every now and then due to flakies.
  • Still on breastmilk. She nurses when she’s with me, and takes a bottle of pumped milk when she’s not.
  • Eating 2 “meals” of solids per day. Usually breakfast and dinner. She’s eating mostly oatmeal, some fruit, veggies. Some purees, some not.
  • She loves to pick up food and eat it. We give her puffs and I have also given her black beans and peas and she eats them this way. So I guess we are kind of doing a modified Baby Led Weaning.
  • 7:00 bedtime and going strong with that
  • The poor girl currently is getting over croup. We had to take her to urgent care in Malibu. (Side note: Now that was a sight – the doctor could have been Joan Rivers’ younger cousin with the very youthful face, Chanel pearls, and Cartier love bracelet. I guess only in Malibu.) She’s been quite a trooper, traveling while sick, but it’s certainly been tough on her.

Milestones / New Things:

  • Sitting up unassisted no problem.
  • Scoots around everywhere, especially on her back and pushes off with her legs. She’s kind of like a crab.
  • She’s almost up on all fours. Please, no mobile baby.
  • We can now sit her in the grocery cart with Kennedy! No more need for strollers, baby wearing, or carseats in the grocery store. Much easier on us.
  • Still has two bottom teeth and no sign of any more coming in at the moment.
  • Rolling over and sleeping on her tummy. I, of course, put her on her back, but she seems to prefer her tummy lately.

Likes:

  • Big sister is probably her most favorite person ever.
  • Sitting in her high chair and playing with her food.
  • Pulling and grabbing at everything
  • Jumping around in her exersaucer

Dislikes:

  • Applesauce. I don’t know why. She just always makes a face when eating it.
  • Overtired is probably this girl’s worst enemy. She hates it!

Happy 7 Months, Sweet Caroline!

    I don’t like being over tired, either. We all know how I require regular naps. Can’t blame the sweet girl!

      I KNOWWWWWW. I hate this!! Why is she getting so big???? We moved her up to her crib when she was almost 4 months old. Basically when she was too big for the bassinet.

    She is so adorable and looks so grown up! My 6 month old is standing and trying to walk. I’m freaking out over here.

    She is getting so big! I’m glad ya’ll had a great time on your trip! We are STILL dealing with Colt’s eczema (mainly on his ankles and feet now). We recently purchased some pretty great lotion that I read about in my eczema group (I think it’s called free and clear – we bought it at CVS). And Colt had croup a few months back, that was noo fun at all!
