mama monday [7 month update]

Monday, October 6, 2014

today our little ray of sunshine is 7 months old. i say this every month, but this past month was so exciting! lily:

  • started crawling! [she's been working on it for a while but a couple of weeks ago, there was an ipad just out of reach and she wanted it so badly that off she went, one little arm and leg after the other. she looks like a hermit crab when she crawls. and i love it]
  • sleeps. that's right. bedtime starts at 6:15 with a fun bath, then pjs, saying our goodnights to daddy and beau, some quiet nursing and then crib with her bunny. [she usually plays a little and "talks" herself to sleep. and we had to drop her crib the other day because girlfriend was thisclose to pulling up on the side]
  • reaches for things she wants [and most importantly reaches for me] and,
  • picking things up
  • gives big smiles
  • laughs, like really, really laughs [especially when being tickled during bath time]
lily likes: beau [she watches him like a hawk and beams whenever he comes close], her jumper [we ended up getting the same one she has at day care - best decision ever], eating, the iphone/ipad/remotes [crap, we're going to have to get her the iphone 6 before she's 1, aren't we?], posing for pictures [she hams it up], food [and more food]

lily dislikes: being changed [this one's annoying], and not getting what she wants

we tried formula yesterday [enfamil for supplementing] but she didn't quite like it. we'll keep at it because mama is pumping for like 3 hours a day and it's hard/hard to keep up with lily's appetite. i'm hoping to swap out 1 bottle of breast milk for formula for her daily day care intake but we'll see how that goes. [in the meantime, if you need me, i'm probably off pumping somewhere].

overall, lily is becoming quite the independent lady! so very curious, talkative, and demanding.

and i love every single second of it.

  1. Hi Natalie. I was off for a while but I am back, catching up with you and beautiful Lily who is already 7 months. she is a crawling cutie. Don't you feel like each month flies by?
