Little Breckie is 7 months.
We thought long and hard about what to name her and finally decided on Breckyln. So we named her Breckyln. But then it just turned into Breckie once she was born. I call her Breckie so often that when someone calls her Brecklyn I'm like 'who?'
Sometimes I'm even tempted to call her Breckie O. because her middle name is Olivia and it kind-of sounds fancy like Jackie O.
Regardless of what I call her, this little girl is awesome.
She's been army crawling/scooting everywhere all month long. Her shirts are FILTHY. All of them. All of the time. She's on the move.
I think she's getting two more bottom teeth because she has been C.R.A.N.K.Y. all week.
She likes to chew on things... like rubber parts from her bottle:
Suckers still in their wrappers:
Everett's popsicle wrappers:
Sunglasses (this is a favorite):
Dirt and rocks (this is Jake's least favorite):
Tomatoes from Costco salads:
She will scoot all over the house to find my purse to chew on it:
So far she's a pretty decent eater. Here is her first strawberry:
Her's is way more dramatic than Everett's.
So far you know that she's had rubber, suckers, popsicle wrappers, dirt, rocks, tomatoes, purses and strawberries but she's also had spinach...
broccoli, peas, cauliflower, beets, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, winter squash, butternut squash, chicken & apples, pork & pears, beef & onions, bananas & avocado... blueberry smoothie once and pumpkin pie :)
So far she enjoys stroller and bike rides and being outside in general. (I wish we looked a tiny bit more high class than we do in this picture!!)
She's been getting on her hands and knees lately but doesn't actually crawl yet. She'll also do some fancy plank work and she tries really hard to climb things (like the stairs).
She slept from 10 pm to 6:30 am without eating maybe twice this month. Most mornings she has 2-4 empty bottles in her bed. One morning it was 5. She always goes right back to sleep if you feed her but if you don't she will keep you up until you do!! Jake tried a few times to just let her cry but was certain she was about die so he just fed her and all was well :)
But she sleeps from 6:30-6:30. Once it was even 4:30-6:30. She just eats a lot in between!
Breckie is wonderful.
She laughs A LOT when we chase Everett around the house and she gets really excited whenever she thinks we're going to chase him. I just hold her on my hip and she kicks her legs and waves her arms and just starts laughing. It's adorable.
She's really wiggly and flimsy. Everyone is alway commenting on her big eyes. And her dimple.
She's just perfect.
