Everleigh Isabella Kelley - 7 Months and Counting

Everleigh’s Monthly Photos: This mommy's attempt to capture our Baby Bear's growth in relation to her “Letter E"... Continued.

Right before our scheduled trip to the valley for our sweet little bear's baptism... Everleigh turned 7 months old.  I know I've said it before, but I still can't believe how fast this is all going.  Before her, we had no real basis for time.. it just went.  Months would pass and we wouldn't even notice.  Now, we can see her growth.  Milestones come quickly and she changes right before our very eyes.

Teeth:  Waking up on her 7 month birthday with TWO new teeth, she's almost ready to gnaw on some yummy ribs. ;)  On this day, she has a total of five teeth... with another one coming two days later (for a total of SIX!! Four on top, two on bottom).

Solid foods:  Are NOT a problem and so far (since her 6th month check up on April 8th when we started solid foods) she has tried...sweet potatoes, squash, broccoli, corn, chicken, brisket, pulled pork and loves pears, apples and bananas.  I have a feeling this little one is NOT going to be afraid to try anything new.. lol.  Gotta fill in those cheeks somehow I guess!  ;) 

Sleeping:  Since her last check up, she has been successfully sleeping in her crib, on her own, all night.  Going down between 8:30 and 9:30.. she'll sleep til 7am, sometimes waking up at 4am...but will to put herself back to sleep 15 minutes later. 

Stats:  At her last check up she was in the 90 percentile for height and OFF the charts on weight.. ;)  A "bit" larger than the average doctor wasn't concerned being that her height and weight were proportional to eachother.  She weighed in at 19lbs 14oz and was 27 1/4" inches long. 

Happy 7 months sweet girl :)
Mommy, Daddy and your furry sister Macie LOVE YOU!!

Seven months later, she FINALLY discovers her gold letter "E" and
quickly decides of better ways to take pictures with it.  ;)
