7 months in!

Isla has now reached the 7 month mark!
the 6-7 month time period has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for this momma.

Around 6 months Isla was not as interested in nursing, and by about 6 and 1/2 months she decided to completely wean herself from breast milk. this was not a peaceful protest, this was a 'show me that boob and I will freak out on you' kind of protest. Needless to say, I was pretty sad about it. I was really enjoying our nursing moments, and was certainly planning on breastfeeding until Isla was at least a year old.

This month Isla also went from a non-crawler to a belly-crawler to a full-blown-get-around-on-her-own-on-hands-and-knees-crawler. She also learned to sit all on her own.

But this was not quite enough for our little go getter. Isla seemed to decide that these accomplishments were a bit too easy for someone who was about to turn 7 months. About 2 days before that 7 month milestone she started to pull herself up on pretty much anything she can get a hold of; a chair, a basket, her bumbo, her besty Jillian or the cat.

Where did my baby go? my tiny little baby has turned into, what her dad calls, a teeny houdini!!

This week we have also been working through some temper trouble. I'm hoping that it is mostly a little tooth that is trying to poke through, but we have been starting with saying 'no temper please' and if it really gets out of control a little bit of crib time never hurt anyone :)
