Here is Maggie’s 7 month update. She is really starting to move. She is trying to scoot and it resembles an inch worm. She is more proficient at going backwards. It is kind of funny to watch. She can definitely get places, and is on the move. She is also starting to do “rocky-rock” as we call it. She gets up on her knees and rocks back and forth. Parker did the same thing, and that is when we named it . It looks like she will scoot and crawl before she will sit up. She is very unstable on her bottom.
She loves her brothers! They can always get her to laugh and giggle. She loves to watch them play. She is starting to talk (growl and grunt at us). She is very curious about everything. Chase told me “we should just call her curious because she wants everything.”
She has had a really bad cold and cough. She sounds awful. One of the problems with being a younger sibling. You get everything the older kids get. Guess she will have a strong immune system.
Appearance: She is still very long with most of her length in her legs. She has very long legs. She must take after her Grandma Green. Her hair is growing very slowly, but looks to be reddish brown. She has very blue eyes. She is such a mix of her brothers in appearance, but you can definitely tell they are all related.
Sleep: She moved out of our room to her crib. She loves her crib! We put her pink blanket down and tied it to the crib slats. We left one corner undone so she can grab the fringe. She sleeps in that corner, on her side, holding onto the fringe, and sucks her thumb. Pretty much the cutest thing ever!! She wakes up once or twice a night to eat and then goes right back to sleep.
Diaper Size: Still in size 3.
Clothing: She wears some 9 month clothes, but mostly 12 months.
Height: Not sure
Weight: Not sure
Head Circumference: Not sure
Eating Habits: We tried solids with her. We have tried baby oatmeal, rice cereal with water, rice cereal with breast milk, rice cereal with formula, rice cereal with apple sauce, and plain apple sauce. She isn’t having any of it! She acts as if it is totally revolting. We are questioning if she is our kid. Food-revolting!?!? Just kidding, but it is kind of strange. We are just going to give her some time. I am sure she will come around. She is still nursing well about every 3 hours. She also get one bottle of formula at night now.
Development: I mentioned some of this above. She LOVES her thumb. She sucks it all the time now. We love it. She is just a joy, and we are so grateful for our sweet, happy little girl!
