7 Months Old

Well, another month has passed and our girl is now 7 months old. I know every parent says this, but time really does fly!

Hannah won't go to the pediatrician for another check-up until she's 9 months old, so I'm not sure of her weight and height right now. However, here are some of the things she's been up to since May!

  • She still loves the exersaucer. It's her favorite thing on earth. She could play in it for hours and never get bored. 
  • She is sitting up! Hannah started sitting up by herself at about 6.5 months old. It really just happened out of the blue one day, but we were so excited about it! She can sit for 10 minutes or longer and be content as long as she has a toy to keep her occupied. 
  • She has figured out how to get up on all fours. She rocks back and forth, but hasn't quite learned how to crawl forward yet. She started doing this at about the same time she learned how to sit up. I'm pretty sure crawling is right around the corner. 
  • Hannah still doesn't have any teeth. I thought FOR SURE she would have some by now, but nothing has popped through. I don't see any that are making their way up, either. We might not see any for a while. 
  • She is still in size 3 diapers and wearing 9 month clothes. 
  • She isn't a good sleeper, and never has been, but things are improving. She'll generally go to bed around 8 p.m. and sleep for 4-5 hours before crying and wanting to eat. Once she eats, she will go back down for 2 hours or so, and will cry again. At this point, we typically put her in bed with us seeing as it's around 4 a.m. and we all need some sleep. She may fuss a little bit around 5, but usually she'll sleep in our bed until she's up for the day between 6:30 and 7 a.m. 
This summer is pretty busy for us, and Hannah is taking two plane trips in July. Her first trip will be to Colorado for the wedding of our friends Adam and Lisa. We leave for that on June 30. Nate's parents are coming with us to babysit while we are at the wedding. I'm very nervous about the entire thing, but I'm also looking forward to seeing our friends get married and enjoying Colorado Springs!

On July 27, Hannah will be flying to Pittsburgh with me for a college friend's wedding. My parents will be coming with me and Nate will be staying behind to work. She'll be a seasoned flyer in no time!
