7 Months Old!

Flora is seven months old!
Flora has been teething all month.  It has been pretty rough for us both.  She now has her two front bottom teeth and things have seemed a little better the last few days.  I'm hoping we are past the worst of it.  She has developed some pretty poor napping habits which I think is related to the teething.  She very rarely naps in her crib for more than ten minutes at a time.
She is a fast crawler and zips all over the house now with no trouble.  She loves to climb things and can usually be found standing while gripping onto something.  Flora is pretty stable now, but hasn't tried to stand without holding onto things yet. Although she seems to love being mobile, she still would prefer that I hold her all the time.
Flora has started eating puffs and other baby snacks in addition to purees.  She still mostly nurses though.  We have encountered some issues with biting as a result of teething, but I think we are past that at least for now.
I have to watch her like a hawk because she will put anything in her mouth.  Pearl and Axel are not so great at keeping their tiny things off of the floor and coffee table so she regularly finds things like stickers and little bits of food.  She also seems to be desperate to consume the remote control.
Flora can wave!  She is so happy, funny, and loves to play.  She brings our house so much joy.
See how much she has grown!


  1. She has a great smile!! Boy, those are some short naps. :( Hope that's short-lived!

  2. I think I say this each time, but seriously: her SMILE! So infectious :) I bet she's just as adorable waving to everyone now too!
