7 Month Stats



Daisy had her seven month check up yesterday afternoon. She also had to get three shots which I wasn't expecting. Ug. I hate shot days. She handled the first one okay, the second one not great at all and by the third she was hysterical which is such a rare state to see her in. Made my heart hurt but, we got through it without any drama. I brought some celery and some bread in a bag and as soon as she had gotten her last shot I pulled out the celery stalk and she was happy as a clam to start chomping on it. She can't really get anything but bits of and she likes the taste so it works for me!

I kid you not; Daisy had everyone in the office wrapped around her finger. She was smiling, laughing and grunting at every patient, pediatrician, assistant and office clerk in the building. The pediatrician couldn't stop laughing at how active and silly DAisy is. Have I mentioned that Daisy is a total ham and will flirt and be goofy with any stranger. She loves when people look at her and smile at her. It cracks me up!

Daisy has actually slowed in her weight gain for the first time in seven months. She is 17 pounds 3 ounces which isn't even a pound of gain in almost two months. She did however go through a crazy growth spurt in length. She is now 27 inches long! That is over 2 inches longer than at her last appointment. That could also explain some of her crabbiness...well, that and the 5 teeth she is still working on. The pediatrician opened her mouth and then seemed shocked when she saw how many teeth DAisy is working on. "wow, she is getting all of her teeth at once," was her exact reply. Then she said she must be in a ton of pain right now...that would definitely explain the crabbiness. Head circumference is 43.2 inches.

I'm not going to ramble on any more as Daisy will actually be seven months old on Sunday this week and I will do her official 7 month post with pictures and all of the latest details revolving around her amazing little life:).

  1. :) She is so precious - of course she had all the attention in the office!!!

    I love that she loves celery - I haven't tried that with Aaron - good tip. I am sure it feels great on their gums with new teeth coming in.

    I hate shot days, too - I am so thankful for the nurse at our pediatrician's office - she is QUICK!!! It's over before the first tear drops. Then I can grab up my babies quickly for comforting.
