7 Months Old Today

I Like Frog Eyes.

Our child has exotic tastes I guess.

This afternoon after I am finished with work we will go to the Cty. Family Clinic and get a weight on her. I measured her length this weekend and she is 29 1/4" long, which put her over the 100th percentile. She's a long baby. It looks like on the growth curve that her length will slow down to about a 1/2 inch a month. I didn't measure her head yet.

She went to bed better last night than she has the past couple days, but she still needed to be rocked for quite a while whenever she woke, which was 3 times. Plus, I had to use the booger sucker (that's what we call it) in the middle of the night. She screams as if I am torturing her. Silly girl, I am only trying to help her breathe better so she can nurse more efficiently.

We have figured out that she has an allergy to ibuprofen like mom has and pretty much has the same reaction as I do - throwing it up within a few minutes of ingestion. I suspected it last time she was sick and puked a few times during the course of her illness, always after having ibuprofen. The thing that was nice about ibuprofen is that it lasts longer - twice as long as acetominophen. Well, now we know and she'll only get acetominophen.

You can tell looking at this picture that she is all stuffy and miserable.

What are you doing?

So, last night was her party at daycare. The babies exchanged presents and Luis bought her some pajamas from Old Navy and a Care Bear. Imagine getting your first gift of pajamas from a boy at 7 months old. Luis is going to be crawling any day........he almost has it. Isabel doesn't seem so interested in crawling. Maybe she will be one that will go straight to walking. It was kinda funny though, he was trying to crawl and was on all fours rocking back & forth (he just can't figure out the moving arms & legs at the same time part) and Isabel grabs for him and knocks him over. She was just trying to touch him, but it was funny in my mind because she could have been thinking "Hey, knock that off, you're making me look bad" and then pushed him down.

The daycare lady got her this really pretty dress set (it's a sleeveless dress with a velvet jacket and tights). She gave our family this holiday candle -- now out house smells like pine, which we were lacking this season with the artificial tree.

I gotta say - I do like that as the "author" I don't have to type in the security letters. So much nicer.

I haven't been here in a while and I have to say that she looks like she's grown a lot in the last few weeks. I love her facial expression in the What are you doing? photo.

I took away her Baby Tad and am holding it by my ear.
