7 months old

It seems like just a few hours ago I was writing the blog about Elizabeth turning 6 months old and here we are at 7… oh wait, that’s because I was a month behind :)

I am still shocked that Elizabeth is 7 months old, but she is definitely showing signs of being more grown up each day.  Crawling is her biggest milestone this month and only stuck with the drag crawl/army crawl for a week before figuring out how fast she could be if she gets up on her knees.  It also didn’t take long for her to flip herself over and go from crawling to sitting upright.  Then add the ability to pull herself up on shorter items and you round out the month in new skills.  While she can pull herself up on some items, she often gets stuck straddling the book basket or holding onto the stool and needs help getting ‘unstuck’.

June 11

  • Size 3 diaper
  • 6-12 and 9 month clothes
  • Estimated weight at xxx and not sure about height
  • Nicknames: Lizzie, Little Bit, Sister
  • We are working our way through all the fruits and veggie baby foods and have introduced Cheerios, Puffs, flour tortillas, and bread.  Rosa’s homemade tortillas were quite a treat and well received.
  • Elizabeth is a morning person and likes to get up around 6 am some days.  She knows how to sleep through the night, but doesn’t always choose to do so. 
  • We think a tooth may be coming through soon after quite a bit of fussiness and sensitive gums on Daddy’s birthday.
  • When the doctor asked if she could hold a bottle, I had to tell him no since she is still nursing but then asked if it counted that she can hold a sippy cup :)


  • This month also celebrates the fact that Elizabeth has put herself on a two nap a day schedule.  This makes for a much happier baby during her awake time and gives me some time with Taylor. 
  • Elizabeth has discovered our dog Sadie more this month.  Sadie is very gentle with her, but thinks that Elizabeth wants her toy/rawhide(not completely untrue) so is constantly moving away when Elizabeth comes near. 


  • When Elizabeth is awake she is exploring her new world of crawling.  Whether it be chasing after Taylor, finding Mommy in the kitchen, or making a bigger mess with toys than her big sister.

  • We celebrated the end of her 6th month by getting her ears pierced.  Daddy likes for his girls to have a little extra sparkle in their lives!  I think Lizzie was trying to tell Chris that if he bought her the pretty bracelet that she wouldn’t cry too much.  She did great and only cried for a few minutes.
