7th month, the many faces of Kalea

Kalea's 7th month stats, done at home:
16.4 pounds
27 inches

She is growing like crazy, seeming to get bigger every day.  Her hair is coming in really quick and she is so close to having a tooth pop through on the bottom.  

Kalea loves our cats, sometimes squealing in delight when she catches a glimpse of one of them near her.  She has started to hold her own bottle part of the time when she is eating.  So far she has enjoyed all of the food we have introduced to her, and really enjoys eating it.  Her favorite seems to be sweet potatoes, but really everything she has enjoyed.

We keep watching her hang out on her belly as it seems like she is so close to crawling.  She gets up on her knees pretty well and can push herself up really well, but never at the same time.  She gets so mad sometimes when she is stuck on her belly since she hasn't quite mastered the concept of rolling from her  belly to her back, though she has done it a few times.

She is still going to work with me on a daily basis, but she now spends most of her time playing in an exercauser, hanging out in a bumbo seat, or napping.  She used to ride around with me a lot in a baby carrier, but that has gotten more difficult as she has gotten bigger and more wakeful.

We still have Kalea sleeping in her cradle in our room, more so because I am not ready yet to have her in another room.  Pretty soon she will be too long to sleep comfortably in it and will have to move to her crib.  She hasn't gotten so big in it that when ever she moves around her weight shifts and makes the cradle rock which wakes her up.  She gets tired sometime around 7:30 to 8:30 at night, and she definitely makes it known that she is ready for bed.  

As she becomes more and more interested in her surroundings, her personality shines through for everyone to enjoy.  It is so fun to watch as she enjoys taking in the world around her.  She especially loves to make it known that she has found her voice in the early morning hours.  She is a morning girl and usually wakes up very happy.

Looking through the pictures I took of her for her 7th month pics, I couldn't believe how many different looks I got out of her.  Please enjoy the wonderful blooming personality of our little love.
