That sweet face – 7 months


Eline at 7 months:

  • Takes two naps a day in her crib, the first one usually fairly short and the afternoon nap lasting 2 1/2 hours or more
  • Goes to bed in her crib for the night at 6:30 or 7:00 and sleeps until 6:15 – 7:00 a.m., with two feedings in the evening (around 8 and 11:30 p.m.)
  • Sleeps on her tummy, unswaddled, and sucks her first and middle fingers for comfort
  • Still enjoys her play mat and now likes the Exersaucer for short periods of time (with a towel around her for extra torso support)
  • Can roll around the room and does not often stay in one place on the floor, and continues to practice crawling motions
  • Will often give big grins to anyone who takes a moment to interact with her
  • Takes 5 oz. mixed formula/breast milk five times a day and just started oat cereal, which has met with moderate success
  • Has one tooth most of the way in (bottom right) and is teething again, which involves a fever, fussing and crying, runny nose, poor feedings and fatigue
  • Can sit with support but tends to stiffen and prefer to stand on her legs instead, and is still wobbly in her upper body when unsupported
  • Responds to voices and noises (seems to startle more easily since the ENT cleaned out the ear wax) and babbles with a variety of noises, including the recent addition of “buzzing” and spitting noises
  • Loves to be held, kissed, cuddled, tickled and talked to
  • Is generally easy-going and content, a good sleeper and an awful lot of fun



I heart that blonde, spiky hair.





She is very interested in her feet.


Getting sleepy…


Fingers, blanket, cozy crib, and all is right in the world.
