Gracie is SEVEN months today!
The week leading up to Gracie's 7 month "birthday" has been incredible! Gracie started sleeping through the night after her 11:30 PM bottle! She started eating banana flavored oatmeal - her first food other than formula! She bumped up sizes to a solid 3-6 month size. She started rolling over both ways constantly with no aid. AND she started sitting up for a few seconds. Her physical therapist was really impressed yesterday. And today - Gracie is SEVEN MONTHS old! I can't believe I've been looking at her face (in picture or in person) since she was just 3 months old. She has been a part of our lives in one manner or another for 4 months now. She's been home for a little over 2 months!
Gracie is starting to be more responsive and expressive. She gets very excited about eating oatmeal and gets twitchy when she tastes peas! She loves to watch her big sister and Libby loves to make Gracie smile. We are trying to move Gracie away from taking a nap every 3 hours to taking 2 solid, longer naps a day - one in the morning and one in the afternoon... but haven't quite got that down just yet.
I can't believe I actually uploaded 18 pictures for this post... but I just couldn't choose my favorite! Enjoy!
