Brielle's Development [7 Months]

7 months! I can't believe Brielle is 7 months! 

This past month, Brielle has begun eating solid foods consistently. She eats store-bought baby foods as well as tiny banana chunks and other homemade purrees that I have made for her.

She started sitting right at 6 months and has been perfecting this newly-learned skill ever since.

She's also become super whiny whenever I leave the room or if she can see me from a distance while someone else is holding her.

Otherwise, it's been a fairly uneventful month.

Her schedule has been crazy this past month. The first two weeks, we spent living in other homes as we prepared to transition from our home in Indiana to our new home in Missouri. This always disrupts baby schedules. As soon as we moved, she got back on schedule, but then she started waking up an extra time in the night again when she got a fever, and that lasted for a week (maybe teething?). It's always frustrating guessing what babies are up to. She still is nursing 6 times in a 24 hour period, but now we've added baby food in as well. Her morning nap thankfully has not been too disrupted as a result of going to childcare every morning, but it also isn't as long as it was before either.

Speaking of moving, Brielle did AMAZING in the car! It's an 8 1/2 hour car ride, and we made it in 10 hours- with a baby and a newly potty trained child! I was SO thankful!

Loves: stroller rides, spitting, sitting up, Sophie the giraffe, baths, people, being held, being outside, chewing on things, her blanky, her paci

Dislikes: Mommy leaving the room, short naps, being on her belly for long
