Happy 7 Months, Livvie Lu!

Olivia is 7 months old today. She is getting so big and showing so much personality these days. She is still a very happy-go-lucky girl! And EVERYTHING goes in her mouth these days. She has a few teeth in (the middle bottom teeth and one upper) and is getting more, which I'm sure is the reason for the constant chewing on anything and everything she can get hold of.

In the last few weeks she's started sleeping through the night about 90% of the time. She falls asleep between 7:30 and 8 and is up between 6:00 and 6:30. Yay! She is still drinking 5 oz bottles about every 3 or 4 hours, but also has cereal/fruit in the morning, a veggie in the afternoon, and a "dinner" at night. If she still seems hungry after her dinner, I'll give her some yogurt too. She usually will eat about half before she is full and starts spitting it back out. Then you know she's done. She mainly just wants the spoon. She LOVES to hold that spoon and shove it in her mouth.

Looking for her dropped spoon...

I tried to get a really cute pic of Liv on her actual "7 month birthday," but these were the best I could do. The first one might have been a winner, but it's blurry. Doh.

Then she just kept blinking from the flash. By the time I turned the flash off, she was done with posing. Oh well, better luck next time!

Happy 7 months Livvie Lu. We love you!


  1. Don't expect her to quit putting things in her mouth after she stops teething. You put everything in your mouth all the time. I thought you were a little crazy, but guess it's just a trait. I think there was even a 3-month period where you ALWAYS had a weeble wobble sticking out your lips. You would put the small part in and the bigger rounded part sticking out. Luckily there was no way you could swallow it. Good times, good times.

  2. Even with her eyes closed, that Livvie is one cute baby!
