7 months

I couldn't decide which picture and there wasn't one great one so you got four! Sloane is now 7 months, and has made progress in the last month. We don't think she has grown too much but she can no longer wear her 3-6 months footed pajamas; she has long legs. She still sleeps about 12 hours a night and takes two naps a day. She has stopped taking a nap in the evening even though it is obvious she is sleepy. She takes 4 bottles a day and eats a fruit and vegetable during the two afternoon feedings. She eats whatever I feed her without a complaint.

8:00=8 oz. bottle
12:00=fruit or vegetable & 5/6 oz. bottle
4:00=fruit or vegetable & 5/6 oz. bottle
7:00=8 oz. bottle

Here are some things Miss Sloane can do:

*sit without support
*turn in the direction of a voice
*babbles more frequently especially when playing by herself
*work to get a toy out of reach
*rake object with fingers and pick it up in her fist
*stand on legs holding on to someone
*push up and put weight on arms straightened
*get on her knees
*notice when Lily is nearby
*stick her hands out for Lily to lick

Sloane is still such a happy baby. She has started to become more vocal about it too. The only syllables detectable are ma-ma-ma which she says usually when she is upset. Sloane hasn't cut any teeth yet nor do we see any approaching, but she puts everything in her mouth and has been drooling since she was 3 months old. She isn't crawling yet either but she can get on her arms and her knees just not simultaneously. She still smiles at everyone who talks to her. Her favorite toy is our dog, Lily. She started to really notice her this past month. She likes to watch her and tries to grab any piece of Lily she can reach. Sometimes she just looks at Lily and laughs when Lily is doing nothing funny at all. Her favorite though are licks from Lily; doesn't matter where either!
