Month 7 in pictures

Month 7 has turned out to be a busy month for Kaylee! Because we waited until 6 months old to start solid foods she was ready to skip pureed food and moved straight to chunks and thick fork-mashed foods. Here is what she has tried so far (all homemade): apples, pears, bananas, peaches, avocado, mango, zucchini, sweet potato, sticky rice, and carrots. Her favorites are apples, bananas and sweet potato. Here are the many colors of Kaylee:
zucchini and rice


Somedays she refuses to be fed and will only eat if she can do it herself. She's pretty good at it so I let her do her thing.

Just this week we tried out these fun food, teether, chewing things. She loved the cold canned pear slice in this one.

We also started the transition from the bassinet to the crib. We're still in the process, mostly because mommy hates walking all the way to the other end of the house when Kaylee wakes up every other hour. (Our house is a rectangle and we're literally on complete opposite ends) However, Kaylee does seem to enjoy the crib and usually plays and talks to herself for 15-30 minutes before she cries out in the morning. This is what I come into:
excuse the bed head! haha

Kaylee has been sitting up unsupported for a couple of months now and is now headed in the direction of crawling. I stole the idea of the progression photos from our friend Amy whose daughter, Sofia, is 3 days older than Kaylee. Although, Amy captured Sofia's movement much better. :)

She also has an obsession with her feet! Its actually helping her roll over from back to front and is really cute. Unless of course you're changing her diaper and 1) have to battle her for her legs, and 2) have to really watch for her rolling off the table!

And to start off month 8 we celebrated with snow!
Christmas Story anyone?

During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
