7 Months

 Scarlett is 7 months old!!  She is getting stronger every day, holding her head up more, pushing with her legs and finally beginning to push up on her stomach!  She has tried rice cereal, bananas, pears, carrots and sweet potatoes, but nothing seems to interest her quite yet.  She babbles all the time, grabs whatever she can reach (including my hair) and tries to get everything in her mouth.  Still no teeth, though we check every day since it always seems likes she is teething.  This round of chemo hit her hard, so it has taken two full weeks for her to perk up again.  It seems like the ugliness is behind us for this round, so I am looking forward to enjoying her good moods and smiles!

Yay! She is chubby and positively angelic. Give her a big hug and kiss from her interwebs family and friends. I'm still praying for her every day.

Sounds to me like you have a pretty normal 7 month old. My kids did that when they were 7 months.
I'm so happy she has made it this far. Keep on fighting Scarlett!!!

Omg she is so beautiful!!! My daughter is the same age as Scarlett gestationally but 8.5 months actual (she was 6 weeks early) and still does not have any teeth either. I had to laugh bc I also check daily bc she puts EVERYTHING in her mouth also. Scarlett truly amazes me everyday, she is such an unbelievable fighter and to be so sweet through all of this says so much about her too! Such an amazing little princess!

Happy 7 Months!!! Love the pictures, she is such a cutie! I know you have commented in the past about worrying whether she's hitting her milestones or not, but I just want to say that it sounds to me like she's pretty much on track. I'm glad to hear that she's starting to feel better and I will continue to keep praying for all of you.

Scarlett's story continues to amaze me. Your baby girl makes me smile. My 14 month old son and I pray for her constantly. I hope you get to enjoy MANY smiles and good moods from her.

P.S. - AWESOME onsie!!!

Jenn said...

Scarlett is right on track w/everything that my baby girl did. She just got her first two teeth (on the bottom) last week - just shy of 8 months. Scarlett will have them soon enough, and then watch out! :) he he

We love your posts, so keep them coming. As always, we've got you in our daily prayers.

Jennifer said...
