7 Months

Little A is doing well. I must say this every month, but seriously seven months already? Every day she amazes me just a little more. I love everything about her and I could not even imagine a day without her.
What she's up to...
Addison now eats 3 meals a day, usually two fruits and one vege. She still drinks 5-6 four ounce bottles as well. She's in size 3 diapers and 6 and 6-9 month clothes. She sits up very well now and loves to play longer because she can sit there. She is very much attached to me lately. I can't say I blame her I'm a pretty cool mom ;) (I kid). She goes to daycare 2-3 times a week now (aka Grandma) and has been doing great there. Three to four hour naps are the regular. How Grandma does it I have no idea. I can only get her to sleep 1 1/2 hours at most. (Which if you've read my other posts is awesome since she used to only do 30 minute naps). Though it does depend on whats going on. She naps much better in her crib where it's dark and quiet of course.
No signs of crawling very soon but she does try to scooch on her belly, especially if she can push off something. She is starting to reach for me when I go to pick her up and helps pull herself up. We are trying to get her to use a sippy cup for water. So far she just bites it then gets mad. Guess we'll keep trying!
We started sleep training, for good this time. The first night she did exceptionally well. Per the doctors suggestion I gave her some water when she woke up (12am). She sipped on it, drank less than an ounce and didn't want anymore. She kind of curled into me like she would go back to sleep so I held her for a second then laid her back down. She was a little fussy so I turned on her rainforest waterfall said night and left the room. Less than a minute later there was no fussing. She was back asleep! She slept until 5:30am! At that time I feed her (being it had been 9 1/2hrs) and put her back in bed. She slept until 7:30, and played in her crib until I came in and got her at 8am! Night two didn't go as well. After her being awake and crying for an hour with it only getting worse I gave in. Yeah, I am not cut out for this!! I'm going to keep trying but an hour was just too long.

Oh wow! Addison has changed so much even since my last visit! The teeth are too precious! OK, and I'm totally dying at your comment on my blog... your photography absolutely leaves mine in the DUST! You are just amazing, and your portrait shots (or people shots... you know what I mean, right?) are just FANTASTIC! I'd love you to take shots of MY family! You're really exceptional at it!

And the last 2 shots I'm just dying over. The b&w and the silhouette! LOVE them so much! xo

Sorry it took me all day to get back to you! Sports, sports and more sports on Sunday afternoons - LOL! :-) For the collages on my blog... if you see a white border thing separating the pictures, those are from MCP's actions "Magic Blog-it Boards." If I do collages without the white separating lines, those I made myself in Photoshop. There was a tutorial somewhere awhile back... I want to say Paper Heart Camera, but I'm not positive? Hope that helps! :-)
