Hi Lovelies, I have been a bit silently recently. Work has been an emotional roller coaster and we just got back from my Best Friends wedding, which was an unforgettable weekend in Washington!!
That said, Sugar Bear (NOT to be confused with Honey Boo Boo's Sugar Bear), is thriving.
Next week she'll be 8 months. So I guess here goes on a 7 month update.
She's a master crawler and she can find any spot of dirt in the house and put it in her mouth. She can easily get herself to a stand and is 'walking' along the couch to get those little pieces of dirt to put into her mouth. She's still very wobbly when you try to get her to walk.
Still NO teeth- pretty sure she's going to walk before she gets teeth!!
She still loves her 'circle of neglect' or exersaucer.
She loves all food- as long as she can do it herself. She can even eat an entire stick of cheese all by herself. Other favorites, chicken, mango, avocado and sweet potato. I will admit, we need to start being more adventurous and just give her what is ever on our plate.
We had two big flare ups of a yeast infection this month. Yeast infections are NOT fun- to the point that we had to cancel a weekend trip to meet our friend's baby. I never thought that I would cancel a trip based on diaper rash!!!! Lots of naked baby time (with towels down), anti-fungal cream, and Palmer's Coco Butter Bottom Butter, (which is our favorite over Desitin, CA Babies, and A+D).
Due to the yeast infection and a rash on her chin (drool?? thrush??), she is now getting probiotics again, once a day.
She's clapping like a mad women- and she claps on purpose- usually after you say YEAH!! She's starting to work on waving Hi. And she loves to GRUNT like a frat boy.
She's growing like a weed- she's almost out of her 9-month clothes, and she's onto 12-month clothes. Seriously- where did my baby go!?!?
Her hair is VERY slowly coming in. And her little birth mark on her forehead is starting to fade, as the Doctor said it would.
Finally, she was a rock star on her first flight to SEA and (knock on wood) she's sleeping at least 11 hours a night (now that I have written this she is going to have a horrible weekend!).
Speaking of weekends, off to a baby shower tomorrow- for a future boyfriend!?? And tomorrow we pick up Grandma Sugar from the airport for the whole week!!
Hope you have an amazing weekend!
Big wet kisses from Sugar Bear.
