Seven Month Birthday

Dearest Kylie,

You are seven months old today! Here are some of your milestones for this month:

You’ve gotten so much stronger in your sitting muscles. You can lean way over to the side and in front of you to pick up a toy and then you can sit back very upright.

You love sorting through your playthings. You enjoy flipping over your plastic buckets of toys. Then you’ll pick up a toy, examine it, put it in your mouth and then cast it away for a new one.

You can hold two toys at once, one in each hand. And you can pass a toy from one hand to another.

You can grasp objects between your thumb and fingers—not quite the pincer grasp but very close to it.

You are log rolling to get to what you want during playtime.

You’ve made a shift during mealtime. You prefer soft foods that you can gum. You prefer real bits of peaches, pears, bananas, carrots and green beans rather than the strained variety. You can feed yourself saltine crackers, cheerios and banana puffs. You’ve also added oatmeal, American cheese and tofu to your diet.

You are laughing more and more these days. You are particularly ticklish under your chin.

You weight 15 lbs, 6 oz. which is a gain of 13 oz. You went from a size two diaper to a size three.

You make your mommies smile every day and we are so happy you are doing so well.
