7 Months Old

How did Evie get to be 7 months old? We cannot believe it! She's so big. Evie weighs 16 pounds and is 29.5 inches long. She is the perfect size and so fun to hold. Evie is starting to move around a lot. She gets into crawling position and tries to get things.

Evie Facts:

Evie wears a size 2 diaper and her clothes are 6-9 months old. Her footed pj's do not fit unless they are 12 month size. She can't stretch her legs out.

Evie LOVES to eat. She eats pears, apples, bananas, squash, carrots, green beans, peas and carrots. Her favorite way to eat is with her mesh feeder and she loves grapes and watermelon. She still eats every 3 hours or so. Mommy wishes we could stretch that out but it's not happening. 3.5 hours is the longest she can go.

Evie likes tags especially paper ones. She eats them. Paper is one of her favorite things to play with. She enjoyed playing with a Junior Mint box on our recent road trip.

Evie loves dogs especially Hattie, Murphy, Gracie and Carney. She likes to pet them and will even let them kiss her. Their toes are especially interesting to Evie and she likes to reach for them.

Evie likes to go out and about. Shopping is fun for her in short increments. Evie still sleeps best in her crib. She naps in the morning for 1-2 hours and again in the afternoon for 1-2 hours. She usually sleeps in the car on road trips. Evie loves her new carseat because she can see out the back of the car and experience the world around her. Evie likes to go out to eat but does best at lunch especially if we can sit outside. Straws, plastic lids and napkins entertain her while we eat.

Evie likes people but needs to warm up to you before you can hold her. She also really likes her Mommy these days and does not let me leave her sight. It's sweet but I want her to be comfortable with other people too.

Evie is so happy when she wakes up from her naps. I love to hear her squeal and see her kick her feet. Once she can use those feet to move - she is going to be really fast!

Evie is still not sleeping great at night! We have had her in 4 different beds in the last week so I am sure that does not help. Hopefully, she can settle back down and sleep through the night again. Mommy is so tired and needs to sleep!

We are enjoying her more and more each day. Happy Birthday, Evelyn Claire!
