Remy - 7 Months

Remy // 7 months
Weight:19ish lbs
Height: 27 + inches


I'm a little late with this month's update but let's blame it on teething.  And ear infections.  And extreme rain.  And life. Yes, let's just blame it on life please.
Summer is quickly approaching and I'm excited to be able to gradually sell and give away all of Remy's winter stuff.  While it is bittersweet I have to say I know for sure that we are done having kids.  I don't even think I could handle a puppy right now in my life.


Here is what Remy has been up to the last month:

Size
She's a biggy girl just like her brother was that's for sure!  Remy still wears size 3 diapers comfortably and I'm sure she'll be in these for awhile.  In clothes she wears 6-9 months and 9 month outfits and pjs.  While a lot of her dresses fit her, I'm finding those chubby thighs are struggling to fit in those baby bloomers.  If only chub looked that cute on me - I'd be a model!


Eating
Remy gets three meals a day now - oatmeal and fruit for breakfast, veggie and fruit for lunch and veggie and YoBaby for dinner.  She also loves her Mum Mums just like her sister did.  We are down to about 4 bottles of formula a day that are anywhere from 5-6 ounces each.  Some days she'll suck a bottle down like a thirsty camel and others she barely wants anything to do it with it.  I get a tub of the Sam's Club version of Similac Sensitive and that sucker lasts me 2 weeks -- holla for Sam's Club!


Sleep
Welp, the sixth month and beginning of seventh month weren't that nice either.  One night Remy woke up at 10:30 and stayed up until 4.  And then was up for the day at 7:00.  I'm crying as I type that memory because it was horrible.  Everyone had horrible colds and hers seemed more chesty than the other two, so I took her to the doctor only to find out the kid had 2 ear infections.  After 10 days of an antibiotic, she has been a much happy camper.  Some nights she sleeps all night while others she will get up once.  I finally got her out of her Zippy sack and have started to put her to bed awake.  Hopefully this will help teach her to put herself back to sleep since she refuses a pacifier.  Still, Remy is ready for bed at 7:00 and is up for the day around 7:00.  Naps are at 10 and 2, with her morning nap usually being the longest.  I'm hoping with our summer adventures will wear her down for longer afternoon naps.  But I think that's wishful thinking.


Milestones
We know have cut teeth five and six (both top ones) and number seven has started making it's debut.  My kid is a shark which doesn't help with the sleeping department either.  Remy sits up pretty good, with the occasional bobble.  She loves to shake her head which doesn't help her maintain her balance very well but it's pretty funny.  Still not a fan of rolling, but Remy girl loves to scoot herself backwards.  I'm thinking she will be crawling within the next month...which reminds me I need to find those baby gates.

Likes
Remy still loves to swing and be outside.  She is super content when we go on our evening walks and just takes it all in as we stroll.  Her favorite time of the day is morning when you get her out of her bed because she will welcome you with the world's best smile.  Squash, sweet potatoes, avocados and bananas are still holding strong in the food department.

Dislikes
Peas and green beans are NOT to be fed to this kid.  I tried to mix them the other day and she wasn't having one bit of it.  Remy has also started with a bit of stranger anxiety and will get sad if she can't see me in her vision.  She hates to be picked up and then put right back down (which is a favorite activity of her Dad's) and also hates scruffly beard kisses (again, DAD).

Remy Elizabeth,
I can't believe that it has been seven months already since you joined our family.  While I'm super sleep deprived and quite certain that my blood has been mixed party with coffee, you my sweet girl are one of the best things that have happened to me!  It melts me to see you love your brother and sister.  One day you will be able to give it right back to them too, which will be fun to watch I won't lie.  We attempted your first pool outing last weekend and you weren't the fan.  But I wasn't either considering the water was -2348 degrees.  I love your smile, your laugh and your baby chatter.  Another month of fun and life, baby girl!  I love you!

xoxo,
Mom

  1. Aww, what a sweet girl! Thanks for sharing the news about her and the pictures. That's funny that she doesn't like green vegetables. I remember this stage with my kids, when the formula got less and the baby food more. Such fun times!
