7 Months

Took the picture and updating 7 months a little late.  Lil miss has been pretty sick this week and not in the mood for pictures or blogging.  She's had the sniffles a few times, but this was the first time it affected our sleep and had to stay home from daycare.  Last Sunday I think we were up every half hour and I finally just held her in the rocking chair most of the night.  The nights got a little better through the week, but her cough got worse and she wasn't eating well at daycare.  She also had a few big spit ups from all the mucus.  Doctor said she just has to fight it off, but gave us a prescription for a steroid given her "history" with breathing troubles to have at home if we need it to open her airways.

She saw her nicu doctor on Monday and no surprise, she still needs the monitor at night and napping.  She is still having up to 17 second apnea spells and heart rate drops too.  So, we will be going back again in December.  She also saw the OT that day who graduated her as she is meeting milestones, but since we go back for her monitor we will see her again too.

She weighed 13 pounds 15 ounces.  She is still nursing at home and having up to 6 ounce bottles, but smaller since being sick.  She's been eating oatmeal, sweet potatoes, pears, banana, or squash twice a day.  She has 2 teeth on the bottom.

She still mostly wears her 6 month clothes but we've put on some 9 months just to mix up her wardrobe.  It's cuter when the clothes are snug though.

Rolling over still just happens rarely and on accident.  She can sit up on her own briefly and she is doing more with her toys now.  She waves her arms when she is excited and is starting to notice her furry brother, Benson, and thinks he's pretty funny.

She is talking a lot more now and the first word she understands is up.  She starts to try and sit up if we say it when she's laying down.  It's so funny so we have her do it all the time.

How cute are her leg warmers?
