Sadie is 7 Months Old!

How did I become a Mama to a 7 month old?  

What is Sadie up to these days?
  • She weighs 15 lb 15 oz (35%), and is 25.5 inches (25%) long.  
  • She is in size 2 diapers.
  • She still wears some 6 month clothes, but is mostly in 6-9 month outfits. 
  • She continues to eat 4.5-5 ounces from a bottle or nurses 15-20 minutes.  AND, she has gotten to start solids this month!  She LOVES getting to eat real food!  She eats solids twice a day - in the mornings, she has 1 ounce of a fruit with 1 tablespoon of rice cereal and a 3 ounce bottle; in the evenings, she has 1 ounce of a vegetable with the same amount of cereal and a bottle.   
  • We have been letting her play with a sippy cup just to get a feel for it, and just yesterday she figured out how to drink from it!
  • Sleeping has been really off for Sadie this month - she's had a hard time adjusting since her last surgery, and she's been getting up a once or twice a night (she hasn't done this since she was a month old!).  Hoping this is just a stage, and we'll be back to normal soon!!
  • New things she has started doing this month - she can turn the page in her board books when we read, she can reach and knock the toys off the ledge in the bathtub, she gives big open mouth kisses on your cheek when you ask for a kiss (so so sweet!), she has found her ears and plays with them a lot, and she has started shaking her head "no".  
  • Some of her new favorite things - still loves bath time and playing in the water, is playing more purposefully with her toys, and loves for you to sing - Jesus Loves Me, Jesus Loves the Little Children, My God Is So Big, The Wheels on the Bus, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and 5 Little Monkeys are her most favorites.                                                                                                                         
The past month has been fairly low key!  We've been at home a LOT due to lots of snowy weather, and Sadie and Mommy have enjoyed it!!
One of the biggest changes this month has been Sadie has started eating solids.  Her first food was applesauce.  Besides rice cereal, she has had apples, pears, bananas, prunes, sweet potatoes, green beans, squash, and carrots.  She has LOVED every single thing she has eaten!!  I'm hoping that she's going to be a very good eater, and not too picky!
Sadie also got to experience her first snow...
...and, a few weeks later got to see a really BIG snow (for Alabama anyway)!
And, our sweet girl got to celebrate her first Day of Love with Mommy and Daddy!
My, how quickly 7 months have came and went!  What a blessing this girl is to us!!

Happy 7 months, Sadie Hope!!
