Seven-Months Old and My First Christmas

Seven-months this past Wednesday and no pediatrician's appointment this month (yay!). Here are some pics though (among the MANY that mommy and daddy took):

Laughter is Contagious!

Addy is easily amused! She's cracking up over the sweet sounds of a . . . zipper, of all things!

Six-Months Old

Six-months old last Monday and finally went in for my pediatrician's appointment this morning.  Here are my stats (I'm definitely a healthy girl!):

1. Weight 17 lbs 14 oz.

2. Height 26 1/2 inches

3. Head Circumference 44

They had me do a vision screening (for lazy eye) today, and I passed.  AND I took my shots like a champ!  Here are some pics from the past month (ENJOY):

Seven and Seven

A big thank you to Cherish this Baby for giving me a Kreativ Blogger Award.

Here are The Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Write 7 things about yourself that people may not know (BONUS: My 7 Favorite Things List follows).
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs, letting them know they’ve been nominated.

Since this is Faith’s Blog, this will be 7 things about her (she told me what to write ;)

1. I am officially eating food now. I’d say “real” food, but it sure doesn’t look anything like mommy’s and daddy’s. I started off with Rice Cereal, then went to Oatmeal. I’ve also eaten carrots, bananas, apples, and prunes. My favorite so far are apples. Looks like I’ve inherited mommy’s sweet tooth!

2. The time change did affect me a little, but I am still sleeping through the night, and can usually fall asleep without needing a nighttime bottle.

3. I enjoy bath time and have recently become fascinated with putting my feet in my mouth. Those 2 thoughts go together because I usually stick my feet in my mouth while I’m in the tub.

4. I’m currently wearing Size 3 diapers and anywhere from 3-9 months in clothes (it’s amazing how the different brands range). Mommy is always on the lookout for the perfect pair of shoes for me (apparently shoe sizes for infants vary across the board by brand as well); she’s already taught me that a girl can never have enough shoes. Can you say Mini-Blahniks? Or Children-Louboutins?

5. While we’re on the subject of footwear, I am the master sock-houdini. Those things have practically no chance of staying on my feet. Maybe mommy and daddy should try these Stay With Me Socks:

6. I enjoy sitting up on my own and standing up with a little help. I am still not a big fan of tummy time. Whenever they try to put me on my tummy, I just roll myself over to my back because I like it better that way!

7. Mommy and daddy have tried pacifier after pacifier but I only have 1 favorite (it's not even the fancy kind), and I spit the others out because I know the difference. They always think they can get away with giving me another pacifier, but they finally buckled down and bought me some more of the one I like!  And because my cheeks are so chubby, the plastic leaves a ring around my mouth but it goes away.

While I’m on the subject of things I like, for my second list of seven I’m going to share my favorite things list (these are things that I have used and have really helped mommy and daddy along the way so far):

1. Bouncer (also dubbed my "Poo Chair", mine wasn't even one of the fancy kinds)

2. Diaper Genie (they forget how great this thing is because they're not always surrounded by my smell ;)

3. Itzbeen (because neither mommy nor daddy have any concept of time!) 

4. Miracle Blanket (or as they have dubbed it, The Baby Straightjacket)

5. Germ Guardian Nursery Sanitizer (has been great for my bottles, pacifiers, and toys)

6. Umbrella Stroller (again, nothing fancy here, but this thing's a great ride)

7. Wipe Warmer (makes getting my bottom wiped so much easier!)

And I nominate:

1. Dee @ Two of a Kind Working on a Full House

2. Holly @ Caring for Carleigh

3. Jackie @ Starting Over in New Orleans

4. Kate @ When Hello Means Goodbye

5. Kirsten @ Just The 3 Of Us

6. Lea @ Nicholas' Touch

7. Sara @ Life Goes On

Five-Months Old

Five-months old already (last Friday), and it seems like time is just flying by so fast! No pediatrician's appointment AND no pesky needles this month (yay)! I did, however, get to meet my cousins for the first time and join mommy and daddy at the Walk to Remember. Here are some pics:

Not Me! Monday

This is ALL mommy right here (because, you know, Faith is so perfect and all):

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

It's been awhile since my last Not Me! Monday! post because it seems that I'm more off my game when I'm pregnant and totally losing it (if by 'it' I'm referring to brain cells).

I did not go shopping during my 'lunch' break at work last week. I shouldn't shop when I'm supposed to be eating lunch, right? And since I didn't go shopping, I did not get more than a handful of stuff to the register only to discover that I'd misplaced my wallet.

I did not run to through the store like a mad woman trying to figure out where I would've set my wallet down (because I didn't go shopping, remember). And I did not run frantically back up to the cashier to tell him that I still couldn't find my wallet only to look down and see it on the ground in front of the register.

I will not go shopping during my lunch break again . . . EVER!

While we're on the subject of shopping, I did not start [online] shopping for a dress to wear to a wedding that I may or may not be invited to. The couple just got engaged and haven't even started planning yet! That would be silly of me, now wouldn't it?

And since I hate shopping so much, I have not been frequenting Etsy for weeks on end and found yet another online shopping obssession. As if I needed help in that department . . .

I did not replace working out this weekend with Wii bowling and Wii tennis instead. Video games most certainly do not count as exercise.

I did not sit in pajama pants for the majority of the morning (and afternoon) yesterday. That's just lazy! And I, for one, never sleep in on the weekend!

Not Just Another Picture Post

Okay, I'm starting to get a big head (literally AND figuratively) because mommy and daddy tell me how pretty I am all the time. They decided that it would be a good idea to enter me into the Gap Casting Call. My entries are below, if you want to take a look at them. And, if you feel so inclined, feel free to Vote for ME! There are clickable links above each picture. At least that way, I know other people think that I'm pretty too! Spread the word, tell a friend. You can vote on EACH picture once every 24-hour period, through November 17th. Thank you, and I'm ready for my close-up:
