Caroline Rose: {Seven Months}

Weight/Length: About 15 lbs. and hanging out around 24.75 inches long.  Girlfriend is rocking all those delicious baby rolls on her legs and arms. I may or may not be guilty of squishing her little legs while I'm rocking her to sleep. 

Hair and Eyes: Brown hair and blue eyes. Her hair got lighter for a while, but has started to darken again, so I think she'll be a beautiful brunette!

Diapers: Size 2 Pampers Swaddlers diapers 

Clothing: She can still easily wear 3 mo. tops. Most of her rompers and bubbles are 3-6 month. Dresses are pretty much whatever - she can wear 3 month or 6 month sizes in those. 

Favorite Things: Her Disney Baby Einstein Exersaucer, playing with these little silicone dipping sauce bowls, her singing bunny rabbit that her Nana gave her, as well as this (practically antique) play rotary phone that I had as a kid.

Likes: Right now, our petite princess loves: sitting up, standing up with support from mom and dad, riding in the shopping cart like a big girl, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and being around her doggies.

Dislikes: Eating solids, (still prefers her milk, but we are getting there), getting her diaper changed, daycare (yup, we're still there...more on this journey later), being sweaty (she gets it from her momma and prefers to be cool.)

Milestones: Well, I suppose we can count eating solids, but she hates them : ( We're sticking with it and it is getting a bit easier. I think it's just a texture thing, still. 

She is starting to army crawl and scoot using her elbows and knees. Now that we've mastered sitting, we're starting to become mobile!

No teeth yet, and I'm a-okay with that! A dentist friend told us that the longer they take to peek through, the better.

Other Changes: She will imitate someone when they say, "Uh oh!" It's adorable. (Isn't this exciting stuff to read? Ha!) She has also started this thing where she'll wake around 4:00 a.m. EVERY. DARN. DAY. She'll wake, cry, we'll change her diaper and then she'll go back down until 7:00 or so. Not a major event, by any stretch, but it is really strange. I blame it on our ghost ; ) (More on that later, too! ha!)

Mama Thoughts: 
Month six was so much fun. She was fun before, but now she has just come alive! She squeals, laughs, smiles and reaches for people, (mostly her momma...and I don't hate that!) Her personality is becoming more and more evident, which is pretty cool to see. She has also started recognizing certain people and that's fun. We FaceTime all of her grandparents and every time my mom (her Nana) gets on the phone, her head will turn and she'll give the biggest grin. She is also super intrigued with Stephen's dad, her BopBop, which is hilarious. She will sit on his lap and just stare at him and grin and giggle. It's so funny!

It's bittersweet that she's growing so quickly, but I am loving this age right now. She still loves to be rocked and cuddled. And, I can still dress her without protest ; )

Mother's Day was downright amazing this year. (Well, duh. Because I was a mother.) Caroline "gifted" me with a new pair of sandals and a bouquet of pretty roses. She also took me out for breakfast with the help of her daddy ; ) The two of them make my world go 'round.

Until next month, friends. 


  1. Happy 7 months, sweet Caroline! :)

  2. Happy 7 months! She is so adorable! :)

  3. Sweet, little peanut! Keep trying the solids. Gracie had a hard time with them too (mostly actual table food), but one day, it just clicked for her. I had convinced myself that I must have the one child in the world who'd have to eat purees for the rest of her life, but she figured it out. :)

  4. Exciting stuff? YES!! Love hearing about your little C. I gotta keep up with my granddaughter-in-law!! LOL

  5. She is beautiful! We had a tough time with solid foods as well. It was definitely a texture thing for Mila, but finally got better :)

  6. I remember your ghost! I need an update!!

  7. Happy 7 months sweet Caroline! Ghost huh? I cannot wait to hear more on this lol...


What'cha got?
