7-Month Update...sorry so late

I'm sorry I haven't updated lately. I am having a problem with motivation...I don't seem to have any.

Delilah is now 7 months old. I can hardly believe it. We had a weight check and she came in at 13 pounds 12 ounces. She is gaining about an ounce a day, super glad to hear. She also measured in at 26.25 inches long. This makes finding clothes that fit her very difficult. Length wise she fits into 3-6month clothes, but width wise she is still in 0-3months. I guess I will be safety pinning her pants again. Luckily dress season is just around the corner...hopefully.

Her biggest achievement happened in Therapy last Wednesday. She rolled from tummy to back all by herself, 3 times!!! I was so excited. I actually teared up. Even Sally was blown away. The progress she has been making is extraordinary. She loves tummy time now. She lifts her head high and will hold it, until she decides to roll over. She is trying very hard to roll from back to tummy. Soon! Still having issues figuring out what to do with the arms. She also likes sitting up more. I put her in her Bumbo chair or high chair and she beats on her little piano.

Her personality is beginning to really shine through. She is always smiling and babbling to herself. Every morning I wake up to her babbling up to the butterflies that hang over her crib. She likes to make noises at me while she is eating. She is also grabbing at her spoon and holding her bottle all on her own. This makes meal time very messy, but I guess I have to get used to that.

I can't say this enough...I love this little girl.

  1. Delilah is lucky to have you as her mom! PWS can be a shock to the system ... we know as we have a 5 year old boy (Dante) with PWS. I can let you know that our children are awesome and it gets easier.

    Dante is running, talking, learning to read and is excellent at playing dominoes. You can find us at Let us know if we can help in anyway.
