This little miss is 7 months old today.
She’s really gotten the hang of sitting up now. It’s such a great thing, to sit up and see the world with this new perspective.
It was a real challenge to get a smile out of her this morning, but as you can see above, our perseverance paid off. Isn’t that smile just divine?
She’s really got quite a little personality. She still loves to “talk”, loudly and persistently. I don’t know what she’s saying, but she sure says it with authority!
She’s still waking once nightly to eat, but typically she’ll just eat and then go right back to sleep, so we’re only up about 15 to 20 minutes and it isn’t killing up too much. She still isn’t on a consistent daily nap schedule, but I’m still working on it.
Her hair sure has lightened up, too. It’s taken on this soft strawberry blond color, and is soft as a feather. It’s very fine too, so keeping barrettes in is a chore, but its so worth the effort! :)
She’s generally a pretty happy little girl. She loves to watch her brothers play, and also is thrilled by our dog, Ginger. Every once in awhile I’ll catch the two of them nose to nose, checking each other out.
She’s always got something in her mouth these days, but she isn’t fond of baby food in the least. We had pork chops for dinner the other night and she reached out and grabbed mine from me and had it in her mouth in a flash. She just loved it! Maybe she’ll never eat baby food? Maybe she’ll just go from formula to table food…we’ll see.
She’s also learned to fake laugh and cough. We’ll cough/laugh loudly and she’ll copy us; its pretty funny.
Can’t believe this little squirt is growing up so quickly…time sure flies.
