Ava 7 months!

Currently about 16.5 pounds. She is wearing 6-9 month clothes. 

This past month was not the greatest healthwise. No colds thankfully but she did get a bout of roseola about 2 days after she got her 6 month shots. Poor thing was miserable and hardly slept. She hardly sleeps as it is, so it was terrible. She had two days of fever and then a rash for 4 days. 

I want to sleep! I want this child to sleep! She still won't sleep for more than 3 hours straight! It's awful. Most of the time she is up every 2 hours at night. Sometimes I wonder how much longer this will go on before I collapse from exhaustion. My muscle knots are aching more now and I've started to get migraines. My skin has not been great. I hate this. 

She is in 6-9 month clothing and some 12 month. 

Still breastfeeding and I've contemplated weaning her because I'm her human pacifier at night and maybe she will sleep, but it's too hard. I do love our bond and it's still the best thing for her. She lost interest in solids for about a week but has slowly been eating a little bit again. 

It's better. She's been more independent so at least she doesn't need to be in my arms all the time like she used too. 

She is a little crawling machine and said her first word "da-da" two weeks ago. She's also started to pull herself up a little higher but not on her feet yet. Today we started baby sign language so we'll see how that goes. If I stick with it, it can take up to two months before she does her first sign. 

Have a great Monday!


  1. Is something wrong with her eyes? they seem far apart with a flat nose bridge.

    1. Nope. Not at all. They look perfectly spaced apart to me. She has my almond shaped eyes. ;) Perhaps the camera angle from above makes it appear to you that she does not have a prominent nose bridge, but it's there.
