7 Months Old!

Where has the time gone?  I can't believe that LolaBean is now 7 months old!  She's changing and doing new things every day.  We finally have 1 tooth popping out!  And man alive it can break through completely anytime now!  She's so fussy on and off throughout the day.  We've had a tough last week and a half.  With the teething, gastric bug, and sleep training, I could definitely use a little R&R!  LOL! 

Onto the sleep training.  LolaBean is a fantastic night sleeper.  She sleeps 11-12 hours a night and usually goes down without any big fan fare.  But she is a terrible napper.  In other words she only likes to cat nap 20 minutes at a time and only in the car or on my tata.  Well this isn't working for me.  I really need her to have a structured 'real' nap.   So we worked on it Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Friday last week.  Monday I actually had really good success, she slept for 1 1/2 hours.  It was GREAT!  Tues, Thurs and Friday were ultimate failures.  I kind of feel like I'm shooting myself in the foot by not working on it everyday, but Wednesday JD was home and we were out doing Christmas returns.  And then this weekend JD was home again and she was too wired to really nap.  She gets sooooo jazzed when Daddy is home.  It's hilarious!  Tomorrow is another day though and we are going to work on it again.  God Help Me and grant me strength and patience to persevere.

LolaBean is almost sitting on her own now.  She catches herself more and more everyday.  And today she finally did a baby push up.  She's been lifting her bum off the ground occasionally.  But so far no signs of crawling anytime soon.  I'm sure one day she is just going to pop up and go after Tonka.  LOL!  She still finds the dogs the funniest things around.  But lately I've been pretty funny too!  :)  And then of course this weekend as she's in the Bio.rne and no one is in front of her she has a giggling fit out of nowhere about nothing!  Man she's funny! 

Anyway, it's getting on to 9 o'clock and I think I hear my bed calling my name.  I'm still hitting the gym every morning, and the sleep training seems to drain me!  LOL!  So I'm off to bed.  I'm thinking of all of you out there in blog land.  Even though I never comment as I'm always on my I.Pad, I'm reading and cheering you all on.  Whether you're still in treatment, expecting, or mothering, I'm reading and thinking of you all!

Much Love!

Hey KS...Lola is BEAUTIFUL!! She is soo soooo adorable! Very beautiful eyes. I am working on sleep training LN10 here too. Been met with some success but you are right...its hard work and its tough to make it your #1 priority when there's so much going on. Hang in there...will pay off!!

She is so adorable! I can't believe she's already 7 months. Good luck with the sleep training that doesn't sound too fun.
