7 months old!

{Photos were tough this month – she wanted to crawl right off the chair! T-R-O-U-B-L-E!}


At 7 months, Meredith is:

  • Wearing 6-9 mo clothes and 9 month clothes
  • Wearing size 3 diapers (they are too big around, but 2s were too small lengthwise)
  • possibly transitioning to 2 naps per day
  • Sleeping from 7:30 pm to 6:30 or 7 am – through the night consistently!
  • Eating solid food for breakfast (at 8 am) and dinner (at 5:30 pm). She has gotten a little pickier and now will spit the green veggies back out at me if she has several bites in a row, so I have to trick her by giving her a bite of fruit, then a bite of veggie.
  • Nursing 5x/day - at (roughly) 7 am, 10 am, 1 pm, 3:30 pm, and 7 pm.


  • Sleeps on her side or tummy, sucking 2 fingers now (instead of her thumb like last month), but still keeps Kitty right next to her face.
  • Army crawls (as I have mentioned)
  • Prefers to play with anything that is not a toy (computer cords, remotes, phones, shoes) or her brother’s Matchbox cars
  • {those two previous facts mean that I have got to find some time to better baby-proof our house! I constantly find her with something she should not have in her mouth!}
  • As of her last doctor’s appointment (Friday), she weighs 15 1/2 pounds.


A comparison: Russell at 7 months (left) and Meredith at 7 months (right).

Happy 7 months to our Sissy girl!
