7 Months

Weight: unknown

Height: unknown (Her next appointment isn't for a few weeks)

Sleeping Habits: Arya is a keeper, not a sleeper.  We're still not sleeping through the night.  She still needs to be nursed/rocked to sleep all the time.  She goes down around 7 and will either wake up once at three to eat and then go back to bed until 5:30/6 or she'll wake up twice, once at around 11 and then again at around 3 and still up at the ass crack of dawn.  Then there was that one super fun week where she was up for 2 hours in the middle of the night for no good reason, not crying, just up.  Hanging out.  Thank God that's least for now.  I did make one attempt to let her cry it out and then broke after about 30 minutes of crying.  Not sure what we're going to do, but I'm open to suggestions ::yawn::  Her naps are awesome at least.  2-3 naps per day 1.5-3 hours long.  Woot woot!

Eating Habits: We still EBF and she takes bottles of pumped milk when I'm at work.  She eats every 3-4 hours.  She'll take 4-5 ounces in a bottle. She's eaten sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, bananas, peaches and apples, some purees, and some table food. Sometimes she loves her food and other times she's only about the boob.   

Milestones: Sitting like a boss.  She's got it down pat.  We also have two razor sharp baby teeth poking through on the bottom.

Best Thing This Month: All the Christmas festivities.  She went to see Santa, decorated the Christmas tree, and went on the Polar Express train ride.  I love this time of year. 

Challenges This Month: It's still sleep, it will probably always be sleep.  

Looking Forward To: Christmas.  I'm loving everything about this season.

7 months!!!! What?!! She was just born! I'm thinking she'll surprise you and miraculously start sleeping through the night in a few months. It'll happen. Otherwise, she sounds like a wonderful little lady! And so stinkin cute! Damn, I better get another girl. :)
