Gentry Claire at 7 Months!

Gentry Claire turned 7 months old on January 27. It's hard to believe that 7 months have passed since GC entered our lives. We are loving this age and stage. She's so much fun and a joy to be around. She's showing quite the personality these days and we love it! 

- You had a check up on February 8 and weight 17 pounds, 4 ounces. 
- Size 2 diapers (barely) we are finishing the last pack of size 2 diapers that we have. 
-  Size 6 month, 6-9, and 9 month clothes. 
- You love to sit up and can scoot around to get things you want. 
- You haven't crawled yet, but you can get up on your hands and knees. Crawling will come soon!
- You are still great sleeper and sleep from 7:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. (yes!)
- When you wake up in the morning, you just lay in your crib and "sing" or babble. You don't cry! 
- You say "ba-ba-ba," "da-da-da," and lots of other babbles. 
- You don't care for bananas or jarred green beans. I make most of your food and you seem to prefer it. 
- You still get 4 bottles a day and eat breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner, too!
- You nap well at home, taking 2-3 naps per day, but have a hard time napping at school sometimes. Most days you are SO tired when its' time to go home.
- You like taking baths and chewing on the wet washcloths. I think they feel good on your gums! You like to have one toy in each hands while you take your bath.
- You have two bottom teeth.  
- You still don't laugh very much, but you are all smiles most of the time!
- You like playing on the floor, mostly with rattles or toys that make some kind of noise. 
-  You've had a hard time at drop-off on Sunday mornings, but settle quickly once we leave you. 
- You like playing with Scout. You pet her and let her lick your fingers. 
- You have a sweet personality and smile at most everyone. You are friendly and aren't scared to go to other people. 
- You are easygoing and adapt well to changes in your schedule or if we are away from home on the weekends. We can take you pretty much anywhere. 
- You sit in highchairs at restaurants now (unless you are asleep) and really like being a part of the action. 
- You tasted Broccoli Cheddar soup at Panera last week and LOVED it. 

We love you, Gentry Claire and can't wait to see what this next month brings!

We woke up to a nice dusting of snow today.
 Not enough to really do anything with, but enough to go out and snap a few pictures. 

It was her first snow, after all! 

We took it all in and then ran back inside to get warm! 
It's cold here today.

Happy First Snow Day, little girl!
