7 months

So looking back Ashlynns 6 month's fun to read how much she's changed!! she can sit up totally by herself now and is a rolly polly machine! In my 6 month post about her she has only rolled over like once or twice. It still amazes me just how much she has learned and how much she grows. She is always going through fun stages like when she stuck her tongue out whenever someone smiled at her. Now she smiles and giggles all the time and instead of sticking her tongue out she does this SUPER huge smile and then squints her eyes reaaal tiny. I tried to get pictures of her doing it but I wasn't fast enough.
She went through a funky stage there for a while where she wasn't sleeping through the night anymore or taking very good naps. It was definitely hard for the working I thought she was teething but she wasn't really fussy enough so finally it just came to me to increase her solid food intake and that did the trick! she just needed more food I guess my milk wasn't doing it enough for her. That is one thing i have found is the hardest about being a mom. I feel like I should always know exactly what to do when it comes to being a mom. Well, I don't always know. I felt so dumb when she slept through the night again for like 10 hours after weeks of no sleep just because I wasn't giving her enough solids. It's all trial and error and to be honest...I just never know if I'm doing it right, but I'm doing the best I know how so I guess that's all I can keep doing. Didn't mean for this post to be so long, guess I had a lot to say

kinda got her squinting...


  1. Such a cute smile! It is hard to know what to do when something changes and then when you figure it out, you're like "Why didn't I think of that sooner, duh."

  2. Hey Cathy - It is so good to hear from you! And I had no idea that you had a beautiful little girl - Congrats (7 months late)!!! How have you been? You look great!
