Seven Months

You started the month sitting up like you've been doing it your whole life. Suddenly the world around you changed as you could see things from above, so to speak. You now love sitting more than anything and get pretty annoyed when you have to lie down, for a diaper change or otherwise. And you love trying to stand. As a matter of fact, you don't want to let us sit you down, and instead you constantly stretch your legs out to reach the ground.

You've become a master grabber. You make it pretty clear that you want something by just reaching out, and you won't give up even if it means leaning all the way over. It's a dangerous habit you have, but you're determined to get what you want! (Wonder who you get that from...)

This month you increased the arsenal of foods you've tried: salmon, mozzarella, kiwi, orange wedges, potato, pancakes, pineapple, pear, cauliflower, oatmeal, cucumber, mum-mum rice crackers, and puffs all made the cut. You love solids and are not willing to be left out of any meal if we're eating in front of you.

Overnight, it seems, you became a big kid. You're vocal about what you want- with loud eh's and ah's if you're not getting proper attention, whines if you need something, reaching out to get us to move you over, and big smiles when you get what you want.

You're the happiest baby we know. You flirt with any stranger that will give you the time of day, and get so so excited at hanging objects- all four of your limbs shake with delight. Let's not forget the welcome you give us when we come to get you from a nap- that smile could make the hardest heart melt a thousand times over.

Speaking of sleep, you're still not a fan of the nap, but you seem to love your new bedroom. You're the best-est, smiley-est, funnest baby we know and we hope you stay like that forever!
