7th month

Language. Katelyn continues to be chatterbox, she is officially saying dada all day long. She has recently starting yelling dada in a raspy voice. She is going to be a death metal singer when she grows up.

Motor Skills. She is now sitting with no assistance she will still tip over if she leans to far but for the most part has mastered the recovery. She also is rolling around like crazy. When I put her down for her nap I always come back to find her in a new position.

Growing up. Food is now becoming a big part of her diet we have now added the following : peas, split peas, chicken, beef, chayote, yuka, garlic, onion, beans, broth, split peas, pinto beans, cabbage, yogurt, strawberry, and blueberry. She has also started finger food, she has had yogurt bites and puff cereal.

On the down side of growing up Tooth #3 made its debut on 3/30 (lower right lateral incisor) this one was a surprise tooth. She was at her first swim lesson and when she out out of the pool she started crying hysterically we look in her mouth and sure enough the tooth had just cut through. it was quite a shock because we were just showing off her first two before class so we knew there was no 3rd one yet.

Another down side was that she finally got her first cold, I think it was harder on me than her, I hated seeing her congested and not being able to do much about it. I set up her humidifier and suctioned her nose as much as possible, and had her sleep sightly elevated, but aside from that there was nothing else I could do.

Now that she is getting older its easier for me to go out and do stuff with her, she can go longer between feedings and she is much easier to entertain. This month we have started going to story time and swim lessons as mentioned above.

Focus. she is getting much better with hand eye coordination, she now holds her sippy cup or bottle and everything that is within reach is grabbed and brought straight to her mouth.

Sleep. has gone out the window.
