Abiageal || 7 Months

I swear that she just gets cuter and cuter every time I post one of these updates! Also, why can't I back date these so that it seems like I have my life together and posting these updates on time. Going strong on the 2 week late update ;)

As of September 21st (6 month vaccinations!),
Weight: 18.4 lbs (75 percentile)
Height: 65 cm (35 percentile) 
  • We took our first vacation to Glasgow, Scotland and she was actually a pretty good little traveler! She slept for most of the 3 plane rides there, but it was a little more rough on the 3 plane rides home. 
  • Abby is full on crawling now! She's slow, but she does know how to disappear quickly when I turn away for a minute.
  • On that note, separation anxiety has kicked in. She wants Rob, but usually screams and cries when I leave the room. She's hard at making decisions, just like me, haha.
  • The same day that she started crawling, she started pulling herself up to stand on things. After a full 4 weeks of toppling over like a downed tree, she's finally getting the hang of slowly dropping to her bum to get herself down.
  • Her screaming stopped, but it's back!
  • We both got a head cold for the first time (for me since I was 15 weeks pregnant!) but we survived!
  • She had a fun sleepover at my Aunty Kim's and apparently didn't sleep very well, but that's typical lately.
  • From 10 hour nights to the occasional 6 hour stretch before waking up for a bottle and diaper change, but she'll generally go back down pretty easily. 
  • She's finally started to hold her own bottle! The Dr Browns bottles are a little harder for her to hold, but the Avent ones are easier.
  • Abby tends to not like purees and prefers little pieces of food. Yesterday and today, she enjoyed a chicken and strained vegetable puree though, so who knows! 
It was so nice going on our first family vacation and things went better than I was anticipating. I worried about money and about being in a different country all together with what's been going in the world. We're home, we're safe, and we had a great time. Next on my bucket  list is the wizarding world of Harry Potter but Rob disagrees, haha.
