Caroline Grace {7 Months Old}

Caroline Grace,

When it comes to you, describing how much I love you cannot be done in words.  Your smile captures me each time.  Your funny and loving characteristics are infectious.  I oftentimes find myself thinking about your mom and I taking a day off of work just so we can spend more time staring at you in disbelief of your perfection.  I cannot get enough of you.  I love you so much.


7 Month Highlights:
  • Two weeks ago we had your six month check up and learned that you weigh 14 lb, 7.5 oz (15%), 25" long (10%) and 42.5 cm head (50%)! No surprise there, you are a perfectly petite little lady!
  • We also learned at your appointment that you had your first ear infection.
  • You're definitely not interested in crawling but you do attempt to pull yourself up on things and love standing. 
  • You say "dadda" only when we aren't trying to get you to say it and are learning to wave.
  • You smile all.the.time.
  • Your favorite toys are the exersaucer {still}, jumper, blocks, Winkel Rattle, stackable rings and links!
  • You are eating 5 six ounce bottles of Earth's Best Organic Formula a day plus oatmeal in the morning and a pouch of organic fruits or veggies in the afternoon. 
  • You are so cuddly and only take naps on the weekends in our arms which we love.
  • At daycare you love buggy rides, music class, sitting on the outside patio, playing with the other babies and your teachers!
  • This month we celebrated your first Thanksgiving and you met Santa. Celebrating this Christmas with you has been our greatest joy to date.
At daycare Caroline's new favorite activity is visiting her friends in the bouncer. Her teachers send us pictures all the time of her just hanging out with the other babies. Such a social little thing...



  1. So incredibly precious, ahhh, her smile is truly infectious! And thanks for making me cry before 8 in the morning! ;) ugh, the sweet note from daddy was too much. I would have to say my favorite picture as of late is Caroline's major side-eye towards Santa!! the best! After reading this post I said to myself, "I want one!!!!" haha, we truly do want a sweet babe to love on. Hopefully someday soon! Thanks again for sharing your sweet family! xo

  2. she is so beautiful! what a happy baby :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  3. Her faces kill me! Such a ham! It also cracks me up to hear her stats... our mammoth boy was 13 lbs at his TWO month! Haha. Quite the opposite! Such a cute little peanut!

  4. Dear Caroline,
    Your sweet and cuddly face just lights up all the pictures!! I love how your whole face expresses all the emotion you are feeling!!

  5. Seriously her picture in front of the tree is perfection - she could be a baby model!!

  6. Such a sweet, sweet baby! Love her updates every month! And may have just purchased that same darling Little Me Christmas pj set for our little gal for her first Christmas next year:)

  7. I love that you get pictures from day care!!! She is SUCH a cutie, and I love her expression with Santa!! Too cute!

  11. SO sweet! That is one happy little girl...and I still cannot get over that look she's giving Santa. ALSO, the whole "you have to crawl before you can walk" thing may not apply to her :)

  12. Love the one by the tree with Baby's First Christmas. How did you get the tree lights to do that? Let me guess with your 50mm lens? I am so asking Santa for one. Is it easy to use?

  16. Oh I just love the first picture with Santa! She's kind of, huh, who's this? And those pictures from daycare, how precious!

  17. I haven't seen one of your monthly updates in a while so I was so happy to get caught up! I need to check out some of those toys for Ryder, because I feel like he's getting bored with the few that we have. Glad you are enjoying your first Christmas!
