Well, Molly is still getting up during the night. We tried one night to see if she would just go back to sleep on her own, but as it turned out, she need a diaper change badly. She was also really hungry. She hasn't been eating very good during the day the last few days. I don't know if she is trying to cut her top teeth now, or what the problem is. Anyhow, our sleep schedule has been greatly compromised. She has had us spoiled until now. :D

Change in sleep patterns...

Molly has been waking up around 11pm for the last few days. Last night it was a little later...around 1a.m. I am not sure what has caused this change in sleep pattern. I usually give her a bottle, and she goes back to sleep. This in no way has changed her from getting up early. She has been getting up between 4:30a.m. and 6:30a.m. for a few weeks now. She naps good during the day, so I am not sure what is up. I did read that babies her age, or a little older will start to wake up more because they feel they are missing out on something. I hope this is just a phase, and she goes back to sleeping through the night.

She got up at midnight, and again at 2:45a.m. We are going to try not getting her up, and just seeing if she will fall back asleep. I am wiped today. :(

I had a feeling...

Feeding Molly solids has had it challenges that is for certain. Some days are better than others, and the amount of messiness varies. Some days she barely gets anything on her at all.

I decided to feed her in just her diaper last night, and I guess it was a good call. She managed to hit the spoon several times, and fling food all over her, and me. I am usually not amused with this, but I had to laugh.

I think she just wanted to take a bath on purpose. :) She loves the water. So she got her way. A bath was going to be the only way I got all the little bits off of her.

It will be an interesting site when she will be able to feed herself. I know my brother was quite the messy eater as a baby. I believe my mom said he would hook his toes on the edge of the tray, and rub his dinner plate on his head when he was done.

Trying to crawl...

Molly is really wanting to become mobile. She really puts an assertive effort in doing so, but she just hasn't gotten her arms as strong as her legs. Her legs are extremely strong. When she is in her crib, she will lay on her tummy pushing her head into the mattress, with her butt up in the air. She mostly ends up pushing herself backwards. It is a start though...

Tonight, she was cute. I had her lamp on , and it was projecting her shadow onto the bumper pad. She just thought this was fascinating. She would reach out for it, and try to grab it. Too cute!

She is such a smart baby. It is just so fascinating watching her blossom, and grow. Babies really are unique little creatures :)
Funny, how a sad percentage turn out to be bad adults.

Molly thinks Baby Einstein rocks!

She has a couple of the Baby Einstein VHS tapes, and a DVD. She loves them! If you want her to be quiet, and sit mesmerized for a good while, pop in a Baby Einstein tape or DVD. It is so cute watching her, and her reactions. Generally speaking babies have short attention spans, but Molly doesn't when it comes to these DVD's and tapes. They really are good, and we plan on getting her more.

Nestle' FDA Warning Letter

Greg found this warning letter from the FDA regarding Nestle' Good Start formula in doing a search for buying the product in bulk. Nestle'has not responded to this letter on their website, or the FDA website. We have had Molly on this product from the beginning. So, I guess we are going to have to find a different formula, as we don't like the fact that Nestle' lied about nutrition values on their packaging.

you can view the letter here:
FDA warning letter

A friend of mine had a friend that called Nestle' about this because her child was on the Good Start formula as well. This is what Nestle' told her.
They said Canadian standards are different from the U.S. and that we have a different product. The numbers for the Canadian product are just fine. The U.S. is also fine because Nestle' in Canada checked into it. The U.S. said their system of testing was different which made the results wrong. They are all well aware of this warning and it is invalid.

7 months...

It is hard to believe that 7 months ago, life as we know it dramatically changed. Into our life came this tiny being, that has forever changed us. Molly is 7 months old today, and everyday is a new experience. She is growing, and changing so much. It is hard to believe that this much time has already passed. Before we know it she will be graduating from college!!
It goes by so quickly.

Da-Da-Da-Da Molly

Molly has become quite prolific the last few days. :)

Instant G.R.I.T.S.

Molly got two cute little onesies from her Grandma in Alabama for Christmas.
They are from the Girls Raised in the South(GRITS)

I thought they were just precious.

Tooth # 2 is coming in...

Greg noticed today that tooth #2 is peeking in right next to tooth #1. Tooth #1 is barely above the surface!! :)
