Happy 7 Months Hadley Elizabeth!
That picture… we visited some friends a few hours down the coast a bit, and we took the opportunity to spend a day at the beach. Hadley was not a fan at first (in her defense, I had stripped her down b/c she peed on her swimsuit, she was hungry and it was windy and all that). She eventually got over it, but this pic was too funny not to use.
Big changes at 7 months. She finally has teeth. She woke up Saturday morning with a little tooth sticking out of her gums. And she woke up Sunday morning with the second one. Two teeth in two days. No warning either. I mean, she has been “teething” (drooling like a rabid dog and mauling everything) for a few months it seems like. But with Cady we would see a white speck under the skin to let us know there was a light at the end of the Teething Tunnel. I inspect her gums daily and there was no sign that an actual tooth was close.
She is still not crawling. She, as you know, scoots like a pro. She can also pull herself up. So I truly think that she is going to be one of those babies that never crawls. She is just going to go from scooting to walking overnight.
This weekend she also started making the “da” sound with huge regularity. I’ve tried to preempt the “dada” and I’ve been pushing “mama” but no luck.
She is still a big, growing girl. She is in size 4 diapers (I think I am buying size 5! the next time I buy a pack). She is wearing 9 and 12 months clothes (she even wears some of Cady’s 18 month stuff). She loves solid foods. So far she has liked everything we have given her. She is a huge fan of squash and zucchini. She loves her orange veggies too. I am loving making all her food for her too. I really like being able to control everything she is eating.
We love you Hadley Elizabeth!
