Catelin at 7 Months

7 Months Old!
Our “Little Miss” is getting more and more personality every day.  She is so happy – she even smiles through her pacifier..and when she is not happy, we hear it loud and clear.  :) 
She’s still sleeping about 11-12 hours a night and takes two 1.5-2 hour naps during the day.   I put 3 pacifiers in her crib so if she wakes up early (around 6:30), she will grab one and put it in her mouth (then she’ll sleep for another 45 minutes – 1 hour).

If Catelin is in her chair or exercauser and I walk into a room, she expects me to immediately go and pick her up.  If I walk by, she starts to whine until I pay attention to her.  As soon as I get her she wraps those adorable little arms around my neck.  It is so sweet.  The other day, she was whining for me to get her and I swear she said “mama” – I know it was just a babble, but it was as clear as day (my mom even witnessed it)! 
The girl has some crazy hair – it is growing but isn’t long enough to lie down, so it just sticks straight out.  It cracks me up…I am so looking forward to putting bows in that hair!
Are you talking about me?!
She still does not like to roll over.  She can do it and has done it numerous times, but she just doesn’t like to.  She sleeps on her back (where as the boys rolled onto their stomachs and slept that way starting around 4-5 months).  She loves to sit and play with all of the toys surrounding her.  Since she doesn’t like tummy time, there is not much happening in terms of crawling…but I am in NO rush for that.  It will certainly add another dimension to the craziness that is our household. 
Catelin is also BIG for her age- she is very long so she doesn’t look super chunky (even though she is well over 20 pounds).  She is wearing mostly 9 and 12 month clothes right now.  The girl loves to eat and is now through pretty much all of the stage 2 baby foods.  We will probably start some finger foods next month; you should see the way she looks at the boys’ food – it is hilarious how much she wants a real meal!  Her formula drinking is beginning to slow down (now taking roughly 24-28 ounces per day) and she is holding her own bottle. 
As far as MJ and Ty- well, they just love her to pieces. 


Happy 7 months, baby girl!
