Joley is 7 months old today. Can you believe it? I can’t. It seems like it was not that long ago that she was up all night. Oh wait. It was. Seriously though, it really does seem that time has been moving rapidly. Here are a few things she is up to over the past month…
She is still crawling. Everywhere. There is no keeping her out of stuff anymore. As I am typing, she is playing with the trash bag and is so very angry that I keep taking her away from it.
She is stubborn. So, so very stubborn. I have no idea where she gets that from. 😉
She loves food. Her favorite by far is zucchini. The kid loves her some zucchini. She has eaten carrots, sweet potatoes, zucchini, bananas, avocado and pears now. I made peas last night. Is it bad that I hope she doesn’t like them because they gross me out? Probably, huh? I will give them to her but seriously, I hate peas.
We are still breastfeeding. I made my goal of 6 months and have no desire to stop now. I am even taking medicine that is making me dizzy and hormonal so that I can continue to breastfeed. This may not seem like a big deal to some but I honestly thought I wouldn’t like breastfeeding. I had it in my mind to do it for 2 months. We had a horrible go at it for awhile but things have gotten better. Now, I don’t even want to think about quitting right now (despite all my complaining about sleepless nights and a clingy baby).
She has started to try to drink from a sippy cup. I really, really need to try other ones because I am not happy with any that we have. They leak, are worn and she doesn’t like them. But, sippy cups are expensive and I can’t afford to buy anymore right now. I really want to find something bpa free too because the ones we have aren’t. Easy cleaning is a must too since we have a ton of dishes everyday. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know. We need to get a new safer sippy soon.
She is a mommy’s girl. She will be with anyone and will freak out if I come in the room. She gets a sad look on her face, whimpers and eventually cries if I don’t get to her. If I go and don’t take her right away, an all out fit may occur. Fun times. I love that she wants to be with me but I also know that she needs to be with her daddy and others too. I believe this will get better.
She is sleeping in her crib all the time. She hasn’t slept with me for quite awhile now. Frankly, I miss her.
She loves water. I got a bath seat (not a very good one though) off Freecycle and she takes baths with Johnny. She loves it. She giggles and splashes. It is really cute. I have also brought her in the swimming pool and she enjoys just cruising around the pool while you hold her. I need to get out the float that we have (not a recalled one, don’t worry) and see how she likes that too.
She has started pulling herself up on stuff. I am watching right now how she is trying to pull up on the car table so she can see inside. Little does she know that if she manages to get up there, she still won’t be able to see over the side. The girl is short!
She loves her brother. Johnny is the ONE person that can make her laugh anytime. She adores him and he does her. I am so lucky.
So, that is what Joley has been up to. She is just getting so big. Why must babies grow up so fast?
