7 months old...really?

Where did my little baby go? Where is she?!?! I know she was here just a little bit of time ago......babies grow up way too fast! Savannah is already 7 months old! She's huge! And she's acting more and more like a baby and less and less like an infant!

Weight: 18 lbs 14.5 oz
Height: not sure
Clothes: Still fits in 6-12 well, but she can wear some of her sister's 12-18 month rompers!!!! 3-6 is out of the question!!!!
Sleep: She seems to be getting a little bit better at sleeping. We put her down at 8, she's up to eat between 11 and 12, and then again around 4. This morning she slept in until 9. Oh it was wonderful!!!!
Teeth: still just the one, but I have a feeling that's going to change VERY soon!
Mobility: Savvy is moving!!!! She scoots backwards and she can rotate herself 360 degrees! Her new thing is when she wakes up in the morning she rolls onto her tummy and then proceeds to cry because she is stuck and doesn't know how she got there!!!
Food: Savvy is getting food every day! We have been working on oatmeal and baby food, and yesterday she even got a little bit of mashed potatoes!

Savvy LOVES the water. She has been to the pool a few times and we just got her a blow up pool for the house. I hope her big sister learns to love the water as much as she does, because both Mitch and I want to spend lots of time at the pool this summer! She also loves her bath time and splashes incessantly while in there! She sits very well, and rarely topples, although she hasn't learned how to get herself INTO sitting yet!

My BIG girl Scarlette is going to be 3 years old in 3 months. Now THAT is absolutely crazy! She is doing amazingly well and seems to be progressing at a much more rapid pace recently. We practice in her stander every other day, and she tolerates it and her braces well. She is getting baby food twice a day and usually averages about 6-8 spoonfuls per feeding. The trick is, we have to have the tv on. The distraction helps her eat. We don't understand why, but we don't care! Whatever makes her eat we will do! We have also been practicing sitting and standing unassisted daily. She can sometimes sit for up to 30 minutes before toppling. Unfortunately she does not know how to right herself or get herself back into sitting, so we need to make sure the area is well padded. Scarlette now weighs 23 lbs 14.5 oz and we are so excited! I can't wait until she hits 25 lbs. At one year old she was just 11 lbs, so she has come so far, and it's amazing to witness. There have been a few issues with her tubes, and it's looking like she may need them replaced, as well as a tonsillectomy for her breathing issues. Now that she weighs so much more than she did last October (19 lbs, what her sister weighs at 7 months lol!) I think the doctor will be more keen on removing her tonsils.

Here's a picture of the girls from Father's Day yesterday! Everyone had lots of fun!
