7 months!

Has another month really passed? Hannah continues to be a chill little lady and the apple of my eye. I love to just love on her and squeeze her and attack her with kisses. She usually gives me a little belly laugh so of course I keep doing it.


She really is just so sweet. She loves company, and if left alone will whine incessantly until someone comes near or picks her up.


She loves to eat. She loves sweet potatoes, squash, and carrots and gags instantly when green beans hit her lips. She also likes bananas, pears, and applesauce. She had yogurt for the first time tonight for dinner and inhaled it.


She goes to bed between 6 and 6:30 pm. She still goes down swaddled but breaks out of it more often than not. And while she’s still a lazy bum, not rolling or crawling or sitting up, she can rotate herself in her crib 180 degrees, fully swaddled. I don’t know how she does it. It’s magic. She wakes up between 3 and 4 to eat and sleeps until around 7. Although lately she’s been getting up around 6. This does not make mama happy. Hopefully Daylight Savings Time can give us a better schedule again. She takes 2 naps a day. If she’s up at the crack of dawn we can squeeze in 3.


She adores her sister and will smile and laugh at whatever she does. She loves it when Summer sings to her, and often tries to sing along. Summer is equally as obsessed with her little sister and always wants to know Hannah’s latest status. “Hannah awake! Mom! Go get her!” or “Hannah asleep! Shhhh!”


She still loves that blasted pacifier. But now she’s quite adept at grabbing it and putting it in her own mouth. Sometimes with force, if needed.


If you remember from her 6 month appointment, she hadn’t gained any weight. Well, we had a check up and she had gained a half a pound in 2 weeks, so we’re back on track. Guess I’ll never be taking any birth control pills while I’m breastfeeding ever again!   zDSC_1635

She’s just learned how to blow raspberries too. All day long all I hear is her buzz her lips and see spit flying everywhere. I even caught it on camera.zDSC_1585

Hannah has a lot of faces. Here’s just a couple I snapped while trying to get her to smile.

Seriously, seriously so stinkin' cute! I was going to tell you which picture I liked the best but I couldn't decide- she is so photogenic. She sounds like such a good girl. And Summer is getting so big!

She is adorable! I can't believe she's already 7 months old. She looks like a mini Summer. It will be fun to see what she looks like when she's Summer's age.

You should get Paragard. Best birth control decision I've ever made... even if I only had it for a year and a half it was heaven. I will def be getting it again after this baby!
