7 Months

I can't believe how old she is! It is really crazy how fast they grow. It was difficult to get a picture of Mackenzie with her bunny. She wouldn't stretch out for me so I had to do it myself (as you see in the picture).

Her stats:
We went to the doctor for Mackenzie's "6 month" appointment a week ago. The doc had a baby a couple months ago so it messed up our 4 month appointment. Then, I was gone to NC for what should have been the 6 month appointment, so we got exact numbers a week ago.

Weight- 15 lbs 2 oz. (yeah she gained 2 oz in a month, but the doc isn't worried so oh well).- 30%
Height- 27 inches- 90%


At 7 months Mackenzie is talking all the time.

She is rolling over both ways and moving all over the floor.

She turns in circles to see everything around her.

She can feed herself little gerber puffs.

She reaches out for mommy and daddy when she wants us.

She gets so excited when one of us walks in the door when we haven't been around for a little while. By excited I mean she flaps her arms and giggles.

She loves food. But isn't extremely interested in nursing anymore.

She likes being tickled, sit on daddy's shoulders, and be thrown in the air.

She is now getting on her knees and rocking back and forth.

She scoots backwards and gets frustrated when she gets stuck against a wall or other object.

She is spoiled rotten by Daddy, but is ready for Mommy to stay with her all day. (only 1 more month!!!)

She has started undoing her diaper while we are trying to put her pants back on.

She is opening the wipe container and taking wipes out.

She loves to go on walks in her stroller. Daddy took her on a little trip to the river and she loved sitting by it and watching the running water. She actually cried when they left.

She rolls onto her tummy while we are trying to change her diaper.

Today I found her sitting up in her crib after her nap. She was crying so I went to get her and was so confused.

Daddy is teaching her how to clap and say YAY!!!

She loves singing the wheels on the bus, itsy bitsy spider, patty cake, etc.

She gets very mad when we leave the room when she isn't coming with us.

She still isn't sleeping very well at night, but we are doing all we can. Maybe one day it will get better!

That is all I can think of at the moment.
