Katie is almost 7 months old already. She is doing great. She is sitting up all by herself for long periods of time and playing with her toys. She is scooting around on her tummy but no crawling yet. Lately she is loving looking at herself in the mirror. She just squeals and laughs at her reflection or at pictures of herself or other babies. Its the funniest thing. She is grabing her toys and moving them from hand to hand and she is getting such better control. I think she is saying "mama". She says "mamamamama" but I am not sure she is directing it at me. She is just talking all the time now. We also started giving her other foods, she has had sweet potatoes and green beans so far. She is doing well with them.
Katie is 7 months, one week old. She is "talking" lots. She is saying mama, it is so sweet. She is really enjoying sitting in the floor and playing with her toys. She still loves to look at herself or other babies. We went to the YMCA and got in the pool for the first time. She loved it, she kept splashing and kicking her legs. She would splash the water in her face and keep on playing. We are going to start a mommy and me baby swim class. I am excited about that. She seems to really love the water, which makes me very happy. When I work out at the Y she has been going to the childwatch program they have, so far she has done very well. I was nervous about that because she has never been to any type of daycare or anything. It was really nice to get some "me" time and be able to not have to worry about her. I just can't believe how much she is grown and how much I love her. She is also doing well with solids. She has now had sweet potatoes, green beans, peas, squash and bananas. She seems to like everything we give her.
Katie is 7 months, 3 weeks and 2 days old today and she got her very first tooth. It is her bottom left tooth and boy is it sharp. She ran a fever yesterday so I guess it was from the tooth. She has never had a temp before so I was nervous about that. You could just tell that she did not feel well. She also napped a lot yesterday, poor baby. She seemed fine today though. She is growing so fast.
Katie is 8 and a half months old now. We just had our first beach trip and had a great time. She really like playing in the sand and in the water. Katie is finally rolling from her back to her stomach now. I don't think it will be long before she is crawling. She is trying to pull herself up to standing now. She eating her solid foods good too. Although she still prefers breastfeeding over other foods. She is getting so big.
I just love this child so much, she is just the cutest thing in the world. She is rolling around everywhere. Its like all the sudden she figured out she can roll to get where she wants to go and she is gone. She is rolling wall to wall. She is so funny. Last night she was in the tub and she loves it. She was splashing and playing with her ducks having a blast. I let her play until the water got cool. She has also been sleeping better at night again. I hope it continues. That second tooth should be here any day also.
Katie is now 9 months and 4 days old. Right on her 9 month birthday she broke her second tooth through, the other bottom one. Then on Friday I took her to for her 9 month check up. She weighed 18 pounds and 8 ounces which is in the 50%. She was 29 inches long and her head was 45.5 cm which are both in the 90%. I didn't realize she was so long. She has a big head for all those brains she has. They also checked her hemoglobin, it was 11.7 which is normal. The doctor said for us to start eating 3 solid meals a day and to keep on nursing. She said that Katie looked great. She wasn't concerned about her not really crawling yet and to not expect her to be walking by the time she is one. I also made her 12 month appt which made me so sad. I can't believe how fast time is going. She is growing up right before my eyes.
Katie will be 10 months old tomorrow, wow how the time has flown. I can not believe that in 2 months she will be 1 year old. I am so not ready for that. Katie is not crawling yet but she is still rolling everywhere. She is close to pulling herself up also. We have been doing well with feeding her 3 meals of solids a day and she is still nursing about 5 times a day. She is just the sweetest thing ever. She is so cute when she snuggles with you. We went to the beach and she had a great time playing and eating the sand. She would kick her legs when the waves would come up. She is such a good baby and I am not ready for her to grow up, I wish she would stay this age forever.
Katie is now 10 months and 1 week old. She is now giving kisses. When I say "Give mama a kiss" she will put her head forward towards mine. Sometimes she lands on the lips and sometimes not. It is so sweet. She is also learned to sit up by herself from lying in the floor. She is so close to pulling herself up, she gets half way up and then just sits back down. Katie is now eating almost everything we eat also. She is a good eater and she is still nursing about 5 times a day. I will be sad when our breastfeeding days are ov er although I don't think it will be anytime soon.
Katie is about 10 and a half months old now. She is learning some attitude. When she drops a toy or something she starts screaming. She seems to get easily frustrated when things don't go her way. I guess every baby is like that. Its like she can go from being upset to happy in no time. Her top gums seem swollen to me a little so I guess those top teeth are maiking there way in.
