7 Months

This month has been very busy with all the Christmas celebrations. It was so fun to experience Christmas as a parent and watch you enjoy all the festivites.  Daddy and I thought very hard about traditions we wanted to start for Christmas.  We may not have it profected yet but we have a good start.  The traditions we did start; we put our tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving and won't take it down until Epiphany is over.  On Christmas Eve we made cookies for Santa and Daddy read Twas the Night Before Christmas to you.  We let you open one gift on Christmas Eve and we got you new PJ's for Christmas morning.  I look forward to Christmas in the future as we teach you about the birth of our Savior. 

Weight: 15.8 lbs - 25% percentile

Length: 26.5 inches - 50% percentile

Size: You are wearing 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers

Feeding Schedule: You are eating 3 meals a day now.  Barley and prunes for breakfast, veggies for lunch, and barley and veggies for dinner.  You nurse 4-7 times a day now. 

Sleeping Schedule:  You go to bed around 7pm give or take a couple minutes.  You still wake up at night but you are getting better.  Everytime I think I have your sleep schedule figured out you change it up on me. 

Likes: You still love to be swaddled, baths,  putting everything in your mouth, pacifiers, watching Max run around, sitting up, rolling over, spinning in a circle on the floor, playing in your jumparoo, Mommy & Daddy reading books to you and singing!

Dislikes: Getting your nose or face wiped off. 

Events: This month we had several Christmas celebrations.  We started the Christmas celelbrations with the Sparks family.  All your cousins had so much watching you open your gifts and chew on the wrapping paper! We later had the Strobel Christmas and had fun watching you and Ben open gifts and be together.  You also played baby Jesus at Grandpa Strobel's church.  Mommy was very worried because you were a little fussy but you never made a peep. Your 1st Christmas was all I had hoped for and more!
