So E is now 7 1/2 months. She can crawl. Not the lopsided crawl as previously shown either. On top of this she can pull herself up in standing position. She loves to do so on my legs. She also likes to hold onto the gate at scream at me while I am in the kitchen at work. It is beautiful to hear.
She has four teeth. With these four teeth she grinds and grinds till my ears hurt. It is like fingernails on a chalkboard...what am I to do?

She is very demanding. If the spoon doesn't get into her mouth soon enough while eating, she lets out an ear piercing scream like death is imminent if she is not fed that instant. How do you show a 7 month old baby that behavior is not acceptable. :)Oh and last but not least.
She now sleeps through the night. Most nights. If she wakes up after 6 am, I will get her and feed her before work. That is the nice thing to do right? Not anymore.

This morning, she woke up at 5 and cried off and on. I had a bad night anyway for some reason. (I think I need sleeping pills, I wake up every hour). Anyway, I ignored her till 5:50. At which point I said "D, go get her and I will feed her." He complained saying she would cry herself back to sleep. I disagreed. So he went to get her like the great husband he is. I fed her in 10 min.

Did she go back to sleep like normal? No. Did she lie in bed with us and cuddle? No. Did she scream and fuss and kick until I put her on the floor to play? Yes. But that only lasted a few minutes. Then she tried to stand up. She had a sleeper on and we have a slippery floor. What happens when you have no balance, are learning to stand and stand on a slippery floor in a sleeper? You fall and hit your head and scream bloody murder.
Yeah that was my morning. Then I had to go to work.

So, moral of the story? Leave baby in bed till time to go to work and feed her there, she will survive.

I love my baby. Maybe one day I will get to sleep later than 5 am. Maybe not. Who knows.

  1. Thanks for the update :) Piper has been waking up around 5 lately. She'll sleep fine as long as I lay with her on the couch or rocking chair where I can't sleep. I wish I could tell you how to make it stop!
