Lainey 7 Months

Size: You weigh 16 lbs. 3 oz. (38%), you are 27 in long (84%), and head is 16.5 in. (24%). I guess the good thing about going to the doctor all the time is that we always know your size! You wear about 6 months or bigger clothes (need longer pants though) and size 2 diaper.

Likes: Your favorite thing is to watch Cambry. And if she comes over and talks to you and "gets" you, you really love that. You like to chew on your toys and chew on your feet. You like to be outside and look around. You think it is funny when Daddy whistles or makes funny noises. You still like baths, as long as big sister doesn't attempt to rinse your hair. The changing pad makes you act so silly for some reason - you always slam your legs down over and over again.

Dislikes: Tummy time for long periods of time, getting dressed after bath, and medicine. Oh medicine. You can keep your mouth clenched so tight it is like a fortress. You are on reflux meds again and it is an ordeal every morning getting you to take it. Which is crazy because the medicine is actually good! The Zantac you used to take was horrid, but your Prevacid is banana pudding flavored and it tastes like a banana sno cone. But then again you love peas but won't eat fruit. Hmmm. Your taste buds are crazy. Oh and you had your first ear infection last week so you are on antibiotics for that. More meds, lucky you!

Working on: Oh gosh what are we not working on these days? We are really working on tummy time, and rolling over. Also trying to sit up. You started PT and OT this month.

Sleeping: You are very good at going to sleep! We still swaddle you and give you the paci but when you are tired I lay you right down and boom you are asleep. It's like you don't even like to be rocked. You take 3 naps a day. Usually your middle nap is the longest - about 2 hours. The morning nap is about an hour and the evening nap is 30 minutes. You go to bed around 7:30 pm. You wake up around 4 am to eat, and then will sleep until 6:00-6:30ish. You usually wake up one other time at night needing a paci. Although ever since your ear infection last week you have gone back to eating twice a night. I have been allowing it because you had such a small appetite the past week so I wanted to get more feedings in, but now that your appetite is back we need to cut out the 1am feeding.

Eating: You eat every 3 1/2 hours or so. I am still trying to introduce you to new fruits and veggies. You like peas, squash, and sweet potato. You ate carrots ok the other day. And a very small amount of bananas. You still don't like apples or other fruits, but we will keep trying.

Now that you have recovered from your ear infection you have gone back to giving us lots of smiles! It is still hard to get a laugh out of you, but sometimes we can and it is the cutest thing. You don't have any teeth yet, but I love your gummy smile. Your hair is getting longer and longer, and I think your eyes are going to be brown. Usually they look dark grayish/hazel but today in the light they looked brownish. We love you so much little one!
