29 Weeks Old!

Avery is 29 weeks old today, or roughly 6 1/2 months. I can't remember if I have blogged about this or not, but I am happy to report that we are "successfully" on new schedule. Of course, there are days when it runs smoothly and other days when it does not run so smoothly. After going to the doctor a couple weeks ago and finding out that our little runt isn't so little anymore, we (Matt and Lauren) decided to drop her early morning feeding; Avery has decided to drop the feeding about 75% of the time. When our schedule goes as planned (usually 4-5 days per week), here is what she does:
8-8:30am: wake up
10:30am: nap #1
12:30pm: wake up
3:00pm: nap #2
5:00pm: wake up
6:30pm: nap #3
7:15pm: wake up
8:30pm: bed time
The next thing that we will work on is dropping that last nap (nap #3). Sometimes she takes that nap, and sometimes she doesn't take that nap...it all depends on when she wakes up from nap #2. Over all, I LOVE this schedule!!

She eats very well these days, also. She eats 1-2 "jars" of baby food each day (along with bottles). She can drink water out of her sippy cup, and she can feed herself Puffs (no teeth yet, but a friend of ours had some the other day, and Avery really liked them; plus, they just dissolve...no chewing with teeth required).
