7 Months! Where Did The Time Go?

Emma is a growing little girl. On Tuesday we went into the doctors office for her Baby Well Check.  She now weighs 18 lbs 2.5 oz., is 27.75" tall, and her head circumference is 45 cm. She is one healthy, happy, baby girl!

She is now sitting up on her own and can bend over to pick up a toy without tipping over. She also has her first tooth coming in on the bottom. It broke through early this week. So far not much fussing about it either. She just had a bit of trouble sleeping the first couple nights and wanted to nurse about every 2 hours. But we are now out of that routine and she is back to her happy self and sleeping through the night again.

We also have been introducing more solid foods with bigger chunks to gnaw on. She does really well and loves her baby puffs, mum mum crackers, tiny pieces of banana, and can even down a graham cracker without any trouble at all. She is also very good at drinking from a straw!

We love our little Emma. And I just wish this stage could last a bit longer.
