Happy 7 Month-Day Emma!!

Our baby girl is 7 months old today!!! Emma is now sitting up unassisted like a big girl :) She has done WONDERFULLY with weaning and is now only nursing once a day. She still doesn't care for pacifiers. 

Emma eats baby food 3 times a day! She loves bananas, carrots, mangos, pears, sweet potatoes, & oatmeal. She does not care for apples (which I think is funny), yellow squash or green beans! Emma LOVES eating banana flavored puffs! I break the puff in half b/c they are still kinda of big for a 7 month old. She is so cute chewing them with her gums/2 teeth. 

Emma is getting better at sleeping through the night. She is still wanting to be fed around 10:30-11pm and has been sleeping till about 5am before waking...this is progress!

She now babbles: "Mama", "Dada", and "baba"

How did I miss this one?? Man they DO grow up fast!!! Do you make your green beans? I found that at first MY homemade green beans were not the right texture for Addison. I switched to store bought and she loved them....then after a while went back to homemade and she loved them. Just a texture thing. Also---what kind of apples did you make your applesauce with? The things she likes are SOOOO healthy too :) Great pics of her.

I tried to make my own GBs with Reese and failed so I just went ahead and did store-bought GBs. I even tried giving her a bite of something she liked alternating the GBs but no...she clamped her mouth shut!! LOL :) I guess it took me 28 years to like GBs so I can't complain too much!! For applesauce I used Fiji like you said and it turned out so much better!! Reese loves it...Emma does not!! Its so funny b/c everyone likes apples :) I'll try a dash of cinnamon in the next batch.
