Abby Meets Santa!

Abby met Santa for the first time today and she did great!  No fear of the man with the white beard!  We were so glad to get such a beautiful picture!  What a great start to the Christmas season!

7 months old!

Don't you just love her expression?  This was about as good as I got!  But then again she is cutting two teeth and fighting an ear infection!

Birth: 7lbs 7oz - 19.5" long
1 month: 8lbs 13oz - 21" long
2 months: 10lbs 6oz - 21" long
3 months: 12lbs 6oz - 23" long
4 months: 12lbs 15oz - 23 3/4" long
5 months: 14lbs 15oz - 24 1/2" long
6 months: 15lbs 2 oz - 25" long

7 months:  16lbs 14 oz - 26" long

Personality: Abby has really come out of her shell (especially outside of home!)  She loves to babble and loves experimenting with the range of her voice!  She remains a very laid-back and happy baby!

Eating/Sleeping Habits: Drinks 6oz every 3 hours. She now eats a wide variety of solids (purees) and honestly I don't think there is a food that she doesn't like!  Sleep has been an issue for the last several weeks as she wakes up for a feeding somewhere around 4am but as you can see, she has hit a growth spurt between 6 and 7 months!

Comforted By: Music, rocking, being read to, and cuddling

Developmental Milestones: She is working on cutting two teeth. She can get up on her hands and knees and rock but hasn't figured out how to move forward.  Instead she has her own form of army crawling to get where she needs to go!
