Clothes: Ava's wearing 12 month clothes and nothing smaller! We are about to up the diaper size and step in the size 4 territory! This little lady still has the yummiest cheeks and thighs but she has lengthened out a bit and lost some of her chub (so sad to see it go!).
Crawling: at 7 months and very shortly after started standing up. Now she is like a little money hanging on every ledge, table, chair and wall she get her little hands on! While she babbles up a storm she's still not talking yet! I can't wait for her first words!
First Tooth: at 6 months with the second tooth coming in two weeks after! Lets just say those were some seriously fussy weeks!
First Time on a Plane: At 7 months and you can read more about that adventure HERE.
Food: Im still breastfeeding but we did introduce one bottle of formula a day at around 7 months. I'm going to start SLOWLY weaning her off the boob. The formula we started with was Gerber good start (because we had a sample from the pediatrician) and Ava was totally fine with it. We then switched about a week later to the Earths Best Organic brand and have been using that ever since. She's also eating tons of fruits and vegetables (which we started at around 5.5 months). At first they were pureed but now just mushed up with a little more texture for her. Thanksgiving was the first time we introduced her to meat and she gobbled it up! Surprise surprise!
I just can't get enough of this sweet little face!! She is really a happy smiley baby but I can tell already this little lady has some sass! lol My favorite time with her is about an hour before bed. She gets this burst of energy and is crazzzzy! She goes nuts climbing all over us and testing out her vocal skills ;) Im just loving every minute of this stage!!
