Piper - 7 months

Is this not one of the most gorgeous babies you have ever seen? I just love her adorable face.

Piper can sit up for short periods of time, but honestly, she is nearly always in my arms or on my back (riding in the Boba) so she hasn't had much practice. When she is on the floor, she immediately rolls around and is able to scoot a little bit.

We quit swaddling her to sleep - cold turkey. She rolled over onto her face one night (while her arms were still tucked inside), so I decided for her own safety, she had to give it up. And now she's actually sleeping better, so that's a win. She still wakes up once or twice at night to nurse. Most days, I can put her down to sleep while she's still awake and she falls asleep in her crib after just a few minutes of fussing. She still ends up in our bed most nights, but I'm trying to limit that now, because she did roll off the bed once. (Fortunately, our room was a mess and she landed on a pile of laundry, so no harm done.)

She likes sweet potatoes and mashed bananas. And Puffs. Oh boy, does she enjoy Puffs. We said hello and goodbye to rice cereal and oatmeal. Those don't interest her.

She squawks and squeals quite a bit, but she is a very happy baby. We are so lucky to have her.


  1. She looks more like Libby in that last picture than I've ever seen her look! Her big lips are so pretty.
