Over a month since I've blogged...so pitiful! So much for doing a picture a week. I just can't hang with the dedicated bloggers. I also can't believe my precious girl is almost 7 months old. Time is flying by and I feel like daily she seems older and older (funny how that works). Exciting in some ways, but it also feels so sad because she feels less and less like a little baby. I think she actually threw her first fit several days ago when I got her out of the bathtub. I'm not sure I'm quite ready for another fit thrower. It seems like we deal with lots of fits as it is.
Fit and all, she is still the sweetest, laid back, content, pleasant little gal. She rolls with the punches, even if she's a tired, hungry, or out of her routine. A true third child.
She wears size 4 diapers and size 9 month clothes. I actually have been looking for some shorts for her and it has not been easy. Girl has got some serious thighs. I bought some 12 month shorts and they were tight on her thighs. She still nurses 5, sometimes 6 times a day, and I gave her her first taste of rice cereal 2 days before she was 7 months old. She was very unimpressed and never opened her mouth. She goes to bed between 7 and 8 and generally sleeps until 7. She still takes around 3 naps a day, with the longest being 3 hours if she has short morning naps.
She got her first tooth (bottom) on May 4th when she was 5 and 1/2 months and got her 2nd bottom tooth several days later. I think she's working on her top teeth now. She also started "school" with Elliott and Mason two half days a week the beginning of June. It was a sad transition for me, but she has done great (except for the fact that she takes really short naps there).
She can now easily roll from her tummy to her back and her back to her tummy. I actually think she does this better than either one of our other kids. Makes me a little concerned that she might be an early mover. Not really ready to run after a third.
Things she loves: sucking her three middle fingers, watching her crazy sister and brother, jumping in the bouncer, throwing toys off her high chair, being tickled, reaching for everything in sight, and baths.
Things she hates: getting laid on or poked in the face by her brother and getting her nose wiped.
The picture below is actually of Elliott at around the same age...you can definitely tell they're sisters. :)
Campbell Mae is well loved! She brings such sweetness into our life.
