Seven Sweet Months

Ok, was this not the fastest month of all time? Seriously. I feel like I just posted G's 6-month photos and here we are - SEVEN MONTHS OLD!

Our sweet girl at seven months is so. much. fun. She's mastered the "fake laugh" and prefers to fake laugh instead of actually laughing... She'll throw in a fake cough every now and then and after she does it she'll look at you and smile and you can tell she's pretty proud of herself. She's seriously only giggled out loud a handful of times and does this instead. Fake it 'til you make it I guess.

She's a champion eater and is adding a new food to her palate every 3 days or so. Faves so far: sweet potatoes, butternut squash and (surprisingly) green beans.

Not so fave: carrots. Completely gagged.

Cheese ball.
Her sleeping habits have not improved since last month - she's still waking up at least 2 times a night. At least. Sometimes every hour or every 2 hours. G seems to be handling it just fine - she's happy at daycare and happy when we get home at night. But. This mama is tired. I'm not a nice person when I only sleep 4-5 hours a night. She's not hungry and hasn't needed/wanted a night feeding for awhile now but she has a hard time soothing herself once she wakes up. She either looses her paci or rolls into the side of her crib or sprouts a new tooth.

But she' still so darn cute.
We've let her "cry it out" a few times but I really hate that and usually end up crying right along with her. It's easier to just get up quick and give her paci back and go back to bed but I'm pretty sure that's going to create a bad habit (if we haven't already...) and I'll probably end up having to get up multiple times a night for the rest of my life and walk around being a zombie... me being dramatic? Probably. But I'm tiiiiiired.

Happy as can be.

Other than that though, she's a real peach. She's made our lives infinitely better and we lover her to pieces. Happy 7 Months, baby girl!
