Esther is 7 months

Weight: 16 pounds

Sleep: You have your momma a run for her money for about a week and a half. You were waking up about every 40 minutes and crying. I would put your binkie back in and you would go right back to sleep. Thankfully for now, this phase has passed. 

You go to sleep like a champ. You know what your bedtime routine is and you go down without a problem! We always pray before you go to bed. Usually I open my eyes and you are smiling. I think you find it silly to have a head over you with closed eyes talking. Obe of these days you will understand! 

Social: You have really started to babble. You love to talk and to have people talk back to you in your language.

You went through a major attachment phase this month. We started to think that you were not going to be ok without mommy or daddy in your sight. You seem to be doing a little better with going to others, at least part of the time!

Likes: You like to be around other little kids and watching them play.

Anything that you have goes right in your mouth. Still no teeth, though.

Dislikes: Still don't like tummy time and really have no desire to move.

You don't like to be hungry. Usually hunger is what brings on the most tears!

Firsts & Milestones: You have done a lot of big girl things this month.

You started foods. So far you have had rice cereal, green beans, avocados, butternut squash, and a few bites of banana. You are not 100% sure what to do, and still like to stick that tongue of yours out when eating.

You also moved to your crib in your own room. I was a little nervous how you would do, but you did great! 

Sitting. You are starting to do better at sitting independently. Still can't want away, but you will sit for a little while all by yourself. 


  1. I'm glad to hear that she's sleeping well. She beautiful, and, no, that wasn't too many pictures. :)

    1. Thanks, Sandra! I am so glad that she is sleeping a whole lot better.

  2. Eeek--- how has it been 7 months? Remember when you were preparing for birth, reading breastfeeding books and hoping she would feed well?? Got what you wanted- a grateful breastfeeder who is growing SO BIG AND HEALTHY :)

  3. I know right?! Hard to believe it has been 7 months. Now to move from reading about breastfeeding to reading about sleep!
