I cannot believe my little munchkin is 7 months old today. I don't remember my pregnancy flying by this fast and I can't handle it! My baby has 7 teeth (4 on top, 3 on bottom) with her two canines coming through soon, is crawling, eating solids, and blabbing sounds that I know will soon turn into words.
Berlyn is SUCH a joy to be around. She smiles at pretty much anything, is crawling all over the place, and makes me laugh all the time. Whenever I look back at pictures of her when she was just born I can't help but wonder what the next 7 months will bring.
She is about halfway trained on a sippy cup but she is doing good with it. We feed her 6 oz. of formula before her breakfast and dinner meals and 8 oz. for every other feeding. I make all her baby food with the Beaba Babycook (shown below). I steam her food in the Babycook before I blend it up for her. Since last month she has tried plums and squash. Her pediatrician recommended we start feeding her dark meat from chicken because she is growing fast and her bones need the extra iron.

At her 6 month appointment, Berlyn's doctor told us she is off the charts with her weight and height and was the size of a 10 month old baby. I feel like she outgrows all of her clothes sooo fast. I have to keep packing away stuff every week that she no longer fits into. It's so sad to see all the cute little clothes she used to wear, but it's bittersweet at the same time. She is now wearing size 9 or 12 months in onesies and size 12 or 12-18 months in leggings/bottoms because of her LONG legs! I was out shopping today and a lady thought Berlyn was a year old. I couldn't believe it! Next on the list is a new convertible car seat I have my eye on since she has outgrown the one she's in now.
Last weekend Berlyn and I went to spend time with family at my grandma's house. She cooked us all yummy food for dinner and we had a good time visiting with them. Here are a few pictures from that night!

Once again, being a busy busy bee, I will have to update this post with Berlyn's 7 month chalkboard photo as soon as my husband is here to help me :)
