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!
