Zoey - 7 Months

Another month here and gone already.  December was a really hard month, so in ways I was happy to say "see ya never" to December 2015, but it also pains me that my Zo Zo continues to grow right before my very eyes.

- No idea on weight.  My guess is the petite princess is somewhere between 14 and 15 pounds.  But let's be honest - probably closer to 14.

- Wears some 3-6 and 6 month clothing.  The 6 month stuff is still a little big but that's ok!

- Happy.  Smiley.  Chatty.  All.  The.  Time.  Smiles for no one like she smiles for Ryan and laughs for no one like she laughs for Cam.

- Hair seems to have sprouted a little more this month.  At least I think so since my Dad commented on it.  If he noticed then certainly there must be some difference.  I think I need to let go of saying her eyes are "dark hazel" because strangers will comment on how pretty her "brown eyes" are.

- Is an army crawling little pro.  I swear she rarely stops moving - especially if she sees something she wants.  She gets up on all fours and rocks a lot but hasn't figured out how to truly crawl and I'm more than fine with that.

- Is trying to pull herself up on things and I am not encouraging it.

- Sits up unassisted.

- Had her first Christmas.

- Two bottom teeth just popped through on New Year's Eve.  They've just barely broken the surface, but they are there.

- Sleep is still hit or miss.  She has slept through the night the past two nights so I'm hopeful we might see some (temporary) light.  I know how much of a roller coaster the first year of sleep is, so we'll see.  

- Naps are overall better.  Hallelujah!

- Had croup and needed two steroid shots to get her stridor and breathing under control.

- Experienced her first snow.

- Gives me the best greeting when I pick her up from daycare.  She practically leaps out of the arms of whoever is holding her and I love it.

- Puts anything and everything in her mouth - especially Camden's toys.  

- Sometimes cries if you take something away from her (thank you for rudely taking your toys away from her, Camden).

- We stopped nursing just a few days ago and switched to exclusive formula.  This may have something to do with why she's sleeping better overnight - she's actually full and satisfied.  

- Loves her some baby food, especially sweet potatoes, squash, bananas, and prunes.  She is not so much a fan of green beans but tolerates them more than she does peas.  And boy is she impatient when waiting in between spoonfuls.

Oh, Zo Zo.  You are such a sweet little lady and so incredibly loved.

Take Luck,
