My Baby Girl is 7 Months!!

Hard to believe it has been more than half a year since our little girl joined the world. Every month just gets better and better as we share things with Avery and watch her grow and change. Here are her stats as of February 2, 2011:
  • Avery weighs 20 lbs, 5 oz and is 28 inches long (she has come a long way from her 7lb 7oz birth weight!)
  • She is wearing size 3 diapers and is in 6-12 month and 9 month clothes.
  • We are upgrading her car seat to a *convertible one this month, her little feet hang off the infant seat and she is too heavy to carry in it anyway! She will have this car seat until she is 65 pounds!
  • Avery is rolling allllll over the house! She will scoot on her belly by pushing her feet into the carpet and then when she really wants to move, she will just roll over and over to get where she wants to go. We think she will officially crawl this month!
  • She loves to sit on the floor and play with toys in front of her, especially ones that make noise
  • Avery LOVES music and singing! A sure-fire way to get her to smile at you is to sing Wheels on the Bus, Ants Marching or Hush Little Baby
  • She is an eating machine! She gobbles down sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, apples, pears and bananas. I made some baby food for her and she isn't a fan, but I am going to keep trying!
  • Avery is getting the hang of her sippy cup, and we keep giving it to her to practice with
  • We took her to the beach last week, and she took a nap most of the time. I am going to have to get over my intense dislike of sand pretty soon...
  • Avery is still getting over her first cold and ear infection, poor baby
  • She says "mama" "dada" and "baba" pretty regularly but doesn't seem to be associating them with me, Alex or her bottle yet.
Enjoy the pictures!
*The convertible car seat we chose (after MUCH research and mommy-friend advice, is the Britax Boulevard CS

The sign is back!
