Rosie is 7 months old!

I can't believe Miss Rosie is already 7 months old. She has changed so much this month! At her 6 month checkup she was 18 lbs 5 oz. and almost 28 inches. She is 95th percentile for height and 75th for weight.

She has tried lots of new foods this month, including pureed baby foods like pears, apples, peaches, etc and baby oatmeal. She has also tried bites of toast, corn, potatoes, avocado, plums, peaches and other veggies and fruits. She can pick up puffs and cheerios now too. She LOVES to eat!

We are done breastfeeding now and she is now on formula. It was a totally simple process to wean her, I'm kind of surprised. I am feeling very free now, but it is a tad bittersweet. My last baby is growing up and is done with the boob! I am so happy to be finished pumping! Rosie has made the transition just fine. She is so laid back!

I am also happy to say that she has been sleeping pretty well the last few weeks. Most nights she does sleep through the night 11-12 hours, from 8pm-7am usually. She still occasionally wakes up though around 3-4am. She sometimes naps well, 1 hour in the morning and a longer nap in the afternoon, but other times not so much. We are on the go with her a lot so sometimes she doesn't have the luxury of quiet peaceful nap times. 

Rosie loves sitting on her own and playing with toys, especially cups and bowls. She loves to laugh at Lila. She loves to wave and blow raspberries and bat her long eyelashes. She is the sweetest baby! She is trying pretty hard to crawl or at least reach things. She will lay on her belly and spin all the way around in a circle. She still doesn't roll much at all. She loves to jabber and says mama and other sounds all day long!

All in all, Miss Rose is a happy lovely baby! She makes everyone smile with her funny faces and her sweet personality. We love our Rosie girl!

Rosie is 6 months

Miss Rosie has been here for 6 months and it has really flown by. She turned 6 months old on June 26th. We don't even realize it sometimes how much she is developing and growing! She is getting to be such a big girl.

We go to the pediatrician on Friday, so we don't know her height and weight and all of the stats. But, to me she seems like she is about 18 lbs! She has the chubbiest thighs and I love it!

Rosie can sit all on her own now! She can also roll but chooses not to do it very often. She loves to cuddle, give kisses, blow raspberries and bounce in her jumperoo. She doesn't have any teeth yet but is drooling a lot. She is getting more hair and it is very blond. Her eyes are very light blue and she still has those long lashes!

She generally sleeps from 8pm-7am, but wakes 1 or 2 times. We are trying to get that under control! She usually takes two naps, an hour one in the morning and a long 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon. 

We are still nursing, but she is getting more formula now and I am slowing down on pumping (once per day). We will be slowly transitioning to formula only over the next few months. She has tried lots of foods: pureed sweet potatoes, carrots, pears, apples and fresh peaches, bananas and melon. She LOVES eating a ripe peach!

We love our sweet Rosie. She is so calm and mellow and hardly ever cries. She is so content to just lay around and look at a toy or talk to herself. She is so funny and so cute. We love her so much!
