Jane is seven months old now! She weighs 19 pounds, 2 ounces, and is 26.5 inches long. She loves to sit up so she can be a little more involved in whatever action is taking place in the household, but still occasionally falls over. This sweet girl loves to eat, particularly stuff like sweet potatoes and squash. Despite her apparent love of food (which is a huge turn around from last month), she still has no teeth but we are constantly on the lookout for them.
Jane is had a bit of a rough month when we found out she was allergic to amoxicillin. Otherwise, she has been doing well. She sleeps from about 7 or 7:30 pm to about 6:15 or 7 am. She occasionally still wakes up at night, but we give her the pacifier and she is back out right away. She doesn't eat between those hours anymore. She takes two naps a day, one short one in the morning, and a longer one in the afternoon with her sister. She absolutely loves toys now, particularly this set of rings my sister got her for Christmas this year and this doll my mom got her, also for Christmas. She spends lots of time on her playmat, but instead of all the stuff the playmat came with, I just stick a bunch of those rings on it and she chews, pulls on, and detaches them to play with. She still loves to watch her sister, take walks and be outside, and swing at the park.
