7 Months

Well February doesn't have 30 days, but I guess I'll count today as 7 months.
Weight: 13lbs 10oz (this was in the middle of Feb. we had to go to the urgent care for a fever of 102 due to an ear infection)
Length: ?
Eating: She is finally back to eating a good amount with bottles and she does solids twice a day now.  She nurses in the morning, 3oz of solids around 10:30, 5oz bottle at 11:30, 5oz bottle at 3:00, nurse around 5:30 when we get home, 3-4oz of solids around 7 and then nurse again right before bed.  She definitely loves her solids.  We have tried so many foods and she really eats pretty well, but she is not too interested in fruits.  She loves carrots, avocados, and peas.  we have also done butternut squash which she likes.  As far as fruits we started with peaches (did not like), pears (eh?), apples (not so much) and bananas.  She liked the bananas the most but we definitely have to mix the vegetables in to get her to eat fruits.
Bedtime:Our bedtime routine is still the same.  She is in bed around 9:00.
Awake: She is awake for about 2 1/2 hours at a time right now.  We start our day at about 6:15. 
Naps: She will take about a 30-60 minute nap in the morning 9-10 and then a 2 hour nap from 1-3.  We still do a 45-60 minute nap in the evenings from 6-7.
Diapers: size 2
Clothes: We have made it into the 6 month clothes although they're kind of baggy.
Favorites: She sure has figured out this army crawl thing.  She just goes so fast now.  The minute you put her on the floor she is gone.  She hasn't figured out the real crawling on the hands and knees but why does she need to if she can army crawl?  She will get up on her hands and knees and rock but that's about it.  Every now and then she will pull one knee up one scoot but then drops to her belly.

A Little Update

Sorry I have been MIA from my blog for awhile.  These past few months have been really crazy over here for us.  I had lots of traveling for residency interviews.  Those are all done thank goodness.  Then I went back for what's called a second look.  I got to spend the morning with the residents to see how things run on the floor.  A great way to really get a good look at how the program runs.

This month's schedule has been crazy as well.  I've been working until either 8pm or 10pm depending on which shift I'm on.  It's been a great month other than getting home so late.  I either get home just in time to put Alexis to bed or she is already asleep.  I just have 4 more shifts to work, then it's off to the next rotation.

At the beginning of February Alexis had her first cold.  She had a fever for four days, coughing, snot etc.  It was so pitiful.  Then she was better for about a week and then new fever of 102.8 and nice ol' ear infection.  She is now finishing up some antibiotics for the ear infection.  Her routine is still thrown off from being sick.

I submitted my residency rank list this week.  I will find out in 3 weeks where I'm off to for residency.  I'm just glad it is out of my control. :)

I'm hoping to get back into the swing of blogging again.  Sorry I've been gone.
