Blair is 7 Months!

Blair,

The last month you have grown and changed so much!  We have gotten to experience a lot more firsts with you and look forward to many more.

You weigh between 15-16 pounds and are around 27 inches tall.  You just moved up to size 2 diapers.  You were 3-6 month clothes, although I have put you in some 6-9 month clothes, but they are still very  big.  You wear size 1 shoes.

You take a bottle at grandma's house every 3 hours and nurse on demand when at home.  You typically go down for the night around 7:30 and wake to eat at 3:00, then we have to wake you around 6:30 to get ready for the day.

You have started solids and love to eat!  So far you have had: Bananas, sweet potatoes, squash, apples, peaches, pears, and carrots.  You do so good eating!

You are a crawling/scooting machine!  We put you down and you are off in an instant.  You have mastered getting from your belly to sitting in no time at all.  Just in the last few days you have started to pull yourself up on things.  You love when mommy or daddy lay on the floor with you because you can pull yourself up on us.

We went camping for the first time last weekend and you did so good! We fixed you a little 'bed' on the floor and you slept very well.  You played with Mady, Aubrey, and Sid.

You also got to go to your first fair this past month.  You stayed with Grandma Pfoff while Mommy worked.  You got to meet a ton of mommy's friends and spent lots of time being passed from one person to another.

You love to take baths.  You have started to love to play in the water and it's so fun to watch your face when you splash- you think it is hilarious.

In the last few days you have also started to really love on Kuba.  You reach to pet him anytime he is close and try to crawl on top of him when he's laying next to you.

And one of the biggest milestone we have reached is you got your first tooth!  It's not completely up yet, but on August 17th we were able to see it for the first time- it goes up and down, but you have it!








We love you so much baby girl.  We are so lucky to have you in our lives and we enjoy watching you learn new things and grow each day.  You could slow down, but we cherish each and every memory with you and look forward to many more!

Love,

Mommy & Daddy
