Eliza Rose: Things to Remember, 7 Months

It’s hard to believe that Eliza is more than halfway through her first year.  The time really has flown by (even the days that seemed like they’d NEVER end!)…

At 7 months Eliza weighs 13 lbs., 13 oz. and is 26 inches long.  She’s the same length as LP at this age but is 2 pounds heavier (considering all the stress we had a couple of months ago about her losing weight I’m very happy about this!).  She’s still only in the 6th percentile for weight but hey, we make little kids!  She’s just recently outgrown most of her 3 month sized clothing and is fitting pretty well into the 6 month stuff…

Eliza LOVES to eat.  She gets very excited when we put her in her highchair and gets mad very quickly if you haven’t already prepared her food.  In other words, we have to get her meals ready and on the tray before we sit her down or be prepared for some yelling!  So far she’s eaten everything we’ve put in front of her- and she particularly loves carrots (steamed just enough to be soft for her to chew but firm enough for her to grab and hold), sweet potatoes (wedged and roasted), bits of chicken and hunks of steak that she can gnaw on for a while…Yogurt and applesauce are also big hits!

At 7 month Eliza knows her name and all of our names and will look for someone if you ask her where that person is (Where’s LP, Eliza?  Where’s Gabby?)    Big Brother is probably her most favorite person in the house, followed closely by Gabby.   Of course, she’s always happy to cuddle up with Mommy or Daddy too…

Eliza is a solid sitter but hasn’t started moving around much otherwise.  She still doesn’t enjoy being on her stomach and flips herself over pretty quickly if you lay her down like on her tummy.   She loves to stand up and to be held up in the air like she’s flying.

She’s still sleeping about 12 hours every night (cross my fingers, knock on wood!) and usually just takes little naps during the day- maybe an hour in the AM and an hour and a half in the afternoon with a twenty minute catnap just before dinner.

She’s the sweetest, our little Eliza Rose!
