With us being in WA for the summer Payten did not get her 6 month appointment when she was 6 months. So we had her check up when she was 7 months.
Heigh: 26 1/8 inches 50%
Weight: 16.13 lbs 50%
Head: 16.5 inchs
We still have a thumb sucker. She doesn't suck on her fingers much anymore but she sucks on her thumb when she is tired or hungry. The pictures below were taken right before her nap. So she was getting pretty tired.
She usually goes down for her naps really well. I tell her "good night I love you" and lay her down. She will then roll over and go to sleep. However, if I put her in bed before she is truly tired and ready for bed, she will let you know. She now also loves to sleep on her stomach, sometimes I'm not sure she can even breathe because he head looks like it is straight down. I try to move her but she goes back to her same position. So she must be just fine.
She loves eating food...and I'm not meaning baby food. If you are eating around her she has to be eating what you are eating. If you try to give her a bottle or baby food she does not want it because she knows that we are eating other stuff that is a lot better than what she eats. I have to give her a bottle and baby food when we are not eating or drinking, that way she will eat her food good and drink her bottle.
She loves popsicles and shaved ice. If you even think about eating those around her you just need to plan on not having any. She gets very upset if you do not let her lick it fast enough. She makes a very growling upset noise until she gets what she wants. I do not understand where babies learn these things.
She is a very happy baby all the time unless she does not get what she wants then she makes a very mad growling noise.
She goes to bed around 9-9:30 pm, wakes up around 6 and drinks her bottle and then goes back to sleep until 8-8:30 am. Randomly she will decide to wake up a little earlier for her morning bottle. Once in a blue moon she will wake up in the middle of the night. Usually that happens if her day time schedule gets all messed up and does not have her same night time routine.
She takes two two hour naps a day. 1st at 10:30 ish and 2nd around 2:30 ish.
She is trying so hard to crawl to get things but ends up getting very frustrated because when she wants to go forward she ends up pushing herself backwards. She will get up into crawling position and rock her body a little and then gets very frustrated. So it will be interesting to see when she finally figures it out.
She hates to have her face washed after eating, she likes her face washed in the bath tub but not after eating. She also hates her diaper and clothes being changed.
She loves splashing in the bath tub or any water. She could play for hours in water if I let her.
She gets so happy when daddy gets home. As soon as she seems him her face lights up and gets so jittery. If dad does not pick her up right away she gets very mad (little does she realize how dirty dad is when he gets home and needs to wash up before he holds her).
She loves to get peoples attention by face coughing or spitting. When she does both it is pretty funny but when she is constantly coughing to get peoples attention they all probably think she is sick. ;) Little do they know she just wants them to talk to her.
She loves seeing other babies and little kids. She makes squealing sounds of excitement when she sees them and just wants to watch and play with them.
We love this little girl so much and can't believe how fast she is growing and changing. She hates to be held like a baby so when she is half asleep in the mornings drinking her bottle I really cherish those moments. And at nights when she is getting really sleepy and should be put in bed Deven and I fight over having cuddle time with her. She brings so much joy in our lives, we can't even imagine our life without her.
