Seven Months!



Clothing Size:  3-6 months

Diapers:  Size 2

Feeding: At Aniston's six month well check, we were given the go-ahead to increase the amount of baby food in her diet and to move on to Stage Two baby food.  We were also told that it was fine to feed her smushed table food, but we haven't done that yet.  Aniston begins her day with a breakfast of oatmeal cereal, some sort of fruit, and four ounces of formula.  For lunch she has some sort of protein in the form of a jarred dinner, a vegetable, and four ounces of formula.  At dinner she has oatmeal cereal again, either a fruit or baby yogurt, and four ounces of formula.  She has a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack (four ounces of formula each) and also has a bottle before bedtime.  She loves baby yogurt!  The jarred dinners have been kind of hit-and-miss.  She loves the chicken and sweet potato dinner, and tolerates the chicken noodle, chicken and rice, and chicken and vegetable ones.  She's not a fan of the dinners that are just meat and gravy.  (Not that I blame her at all for that--they smell horrible and can't taste any better than they smell.)  We've only tried chicken so far.  She's beginning to like green beans better, but still prefers sweet potatoes over any other vegetable.  She loves all the fruits.  We tried pears for the first time this month.

Hair/Eyes:  Aniston's eyes are still blue.  Her hair is a light brown with a reddish tint. Her hair is really growing!

Sleep:  Aniston usually goes to bed around 8:30 and wakes up between 7:00 and 7:30.  She's still a good sleeper and sleeps through the night most nights.  Lately we've had some trouble with her wanting to take naps really late in the evening (around 5 or 6), and that throws her schedule off.

--Papaw Ricky (my dad).  My dad retired a couple of years ago, and he keeps Aniston while Bradley and I are at work. Aniston absolutely adores him!
--Lucy and Ethel
--Anything that makes noise
--Talking to people on the phone
 --Tags of any sort.  She loves her taggie blanket!
--People watching at restaurants and while shopping

--Having her diaper or clothes changed.  I tell people it's like wrestling a wild animal to change her, especially in the mornings.  They think I'm kidding, but it's no joke.  I'm almost sweating by the time she's dressed.
--The carseat

Fun Stuff:   
--Aniston licks everything now....including the schnauzers if they get close enough.  :-/

Mommy's Point of View:  
   Our little girl is the light of our lives!  Not a day goes by that I don't marvel at how blessed we are.
