This was a month of many firsts. You rocked the cutest 4th of July outfit and your grandparents came to visit for the Holiday. Your father also shot fireworks off outside of your bedroom and I almost killed him.
Sleep: You my darling, are back to sleeping through the night with an occasional waking. I have also started singing/humming Silent Night to you as we rock. I have no idea why (aside from the fact that I love Christmas), but you seem to love it.
Clothes and Diapers, etc: You are still in size 6-9 clothing and size 3 diapers.
Bath: You love Splishy Splashy time and we have finally removed the baby seat so you can sit in the tub on your own. Your father continues to bathe you as it still stresses me out.
Medical: It only took 9 months, but you were finally diagnosed with your first ear infection. You showed zero signs as you were still cheerful and ate well. However, you had a fever one night so we took you in. Thankfully, it was only in one ear and explains your occasional waking during the night. Chomp! Chomp! Your first tooth finally popped out (your bottom right) as well. This month was also your first "black eye." Apparently you dove face first for a toy at school and wound up with a bruise under your eye.
Food: We went back to nursing after formula so you are still on mommy's milk. During our nursing sessions you have started moving around a lot and nurse in the weirdest positions. Maybe because your ear was bothering you? You get 2 bottles at school that are around 7 oz each. I usually send two solids for you to have during the day as well.
Stats: You weigh 18 lbs 6 oz and are 27.2 inches tall. Your head measured at 42.4 cm. You are a petite girl!
Development/Mannerisms: All you do is crawl and love to push yourself up to a standing position. We started using a highchair when we go out to eat. It has gone very well and you love people watching. I personally love our high chair/grocery cart cover! You started clapping mommy's hands, but one day when I walked in to pick you up from school you started clapping for me. Ha! Recently you have shown much more interest in playing with your toys which is great because you are easily entertained.
Appearance: Your hair
is still a light brown color and you have enough to rock some serious high ponies! Your eyes are still a gorgeous blue and you have better lashes than I
do. Your toe and finger nails are sharp and always out of control.
