Louisa is 7 months old. (She will be 8 months old in 4 days.... Like I said, I do these in bits and snippets.)
Height: 25 inches
Weight: 15-1/2 pounds
Size: 3-6 month
Favorite things: Alice, Tim, and me. She is firmly in her stranger danger phase. She also enjoys her wooden keys and chewing on Sophie the Giraffe.
Developmental Stuff: Not much new to report. She is babbling more and experimenting with volume, both loud and soft. We were joking around with her the other day because one of the medicines she takes is used as a supplement for body builders. We said, "Louisa, are you a beefcake?" and every time we asked her she made this strange growling noise in response and tensed herself, like a wrestler showing off their muscles.
She holds her bottle herself now all the time. She likes to pat your face while you hold her, which is one of the most heart-melting things ever. She also loves to pull hair while screaming like a yeti, which is not the most heart-melting thing ever.
