Avery turned seven months old yesterday!
I picked up this hat at a Gap Outlet yesterday and couldn’t resist using it as this month’s “prop”. It is ridiculous and I love it.
This last month has been a developmental explosion (as other parents told us it would be) and it’s been so fun to watch Avery eagerly try new foods, wiggle across the floor (she currently prefers the worm move) and attempt to stick her entire foot in her mouth.
I think she might also be working on a first tooth, as sleep these last few nights has been a little rough.
Good thing she’s pretty sinkin’ cute.
Oh, and thank you all for the feedback on highchairs from our six month post. We used Laura’s Albee Baby tip and scored a Stokke Tripp Trapp for $180 (with no tax and free shipping!). I’m still on the fence whether to pay another $70 for the baby set. So far we’ve just been using the included harness which seems to be ok (though she does slouch a bit to one side if she’s tired). I might keep an eye on Craigslist as I’ve seen them pop up from time to time. Thoughts?
One last thing – did you read this blog post about work-at-home moms? Even though Avery is still little and on a (somewhat) predictable schedule, it’s a topic that I’ve been thinking more and more about lately. I know we’ll need to tweak our current set-up as she gets older and it’s good to know that others are asking for help.
