This is the second year in a row that I have been sick for Thanksgiving! Ok, it isn't thanksgiving yet, but I am having thanksgiving at my house with Jordan's (my husband) mom tomorrow. And I have a nasty cold. I can't breathe. Not just through my nose, but I feel like I am not getting enough oxygen. If I need to move, I am out of breath. ::Insert baby cry from me::. I have people coming from Alaska staying with me Thursday night, I do not have time to not feel good! Darn you annual cold!
I have been busy taking care of this little terror. I am truly blessed to be this little lady's mama.
One nice thing about not being able to breath out my nose, is I didn't have to smell Adeline's poop today! :) And trust me... they are stinky! :)
You should follow along my journey of taking a photo a day for 365 days!

July flew by in a blink of an eye! I feel like just yesterday I was tearing up that she was 6 months old.. and now she is over 7 months!
Adeline is so close to crawling! Every day I think "today maybe the day"soon!
She has officially entered the "I only want my mommy" phase. It is adorable but I do feel bad that others don't get to enjoy her as much as I do!
She also doesn't like social settings- at least big ones. This isn't all that new.. but it has just intensified as of the lately. In fact she usually gets exhausted and has a huge meltdown about 30 minutes in. It really stresses me out. I feel like I can't socialize, and that I need to leave. And when she cries everything in my body screams at me to do everything in my power to help her.. which obviously is stressful for the body. I know people understand but still I dread social functions.
Breastfeeding is still going great. Although she is a biter at times. OWWWE!! I am not sure how long I will last once she cuts teeth!! I will continue to pump- but nursing may go out the window if she bites with teeth!
Speaking of teething she is definitely teething- her pediatrician said that she is getting 4 teeth on her bottom teeth! Hopefully soon some will start poking through! But I just can't imagine her with teeth!
Adeline is still hooked on the nuk! I am totally fine with that- from the beginning I knew I wanted to use it.

Well you didn't expect me to be on time with this post, did you?! :) I did however take her pictures on time! She turned 6 months on July 3rd! WHICH THESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN ON TIME!! :)
I can't believe Adeline is 6 months old!! It makes me so happy and sad! All in the same breath! I feel like time is going by way to fast! I know every parent says that.. but I really mean it!
Her sleep has greatly improved! She wakes up anywhere from 0-3 times a night! Its funny how quickly I forget what those sleepless nights were like! I feed her once during the night if she wakes up, if she wakes up more she only gets snuggles and pacifier. I still swaddle her, she gets out of if she wants too, but most nights it really helps her to fall asleep.
She is a happy smiley baby. She loves to be tickled, and often times she smiles and laughs at you, even if you aren't even looking at her ( she is unaware the world doesn't revolve around her).
We started baby food and she loves sweat peas, carrots, and mangos, prunes and squash are runner ups. And she HATES peaches and bananas! She literally screams and cries when I try and give her those things! She really picked up eating really quickly! It is what made her sleep through the night! I had never had her sleep through the night until she started baby food! So I love it!
Breastfeeding is still going great. I pump during the day and nurse at night (if it isn't the middle of the night, I nurse and then pump) I don't have an oversupply at all- I wish I did! But I make just the right amount! However my supply dips super easily! If I am stressed out my supply takes a hit, and I will have to supplement her with formula- usually about 4 ounces once.
THINGS SHE LOVES
- car rides
-baby wipes- they are the best toy
-Porkchop (her brother)
-when daddy tickles her

( i am super late on this post! Lots of things have kept me busy! I will update you all soon! )
My dear sweet Adeline is 5 months old! And on her 5 month birthday she rolled belly to back twice!! Go Adeline! She sits on her own very well for about a minute before she folds in half or topples to one side.
She still wakes up to nurse 2 times a night and I am up a few more times putting the pacifier in her mouth.
Her hair on her side is filling in nicely! Yay!
I am still nursing and pumping. I don't have an ounce extra of breast milk (I'm even taking the max dosage of fenugreek) but I'm not short anymore! Yay!
You had your 4 month doctor appointment at 5 months and your pediatrician said you are doing fabulous! He told me you are ready for solids.. But we are still waiting. You are 68% for height and 53% for weight and 35% for head! :)
