At Seven Months

Dear Munchkin,

You are growing so fast!  I can't believe that we are already in the second half of your first year of life.  You are Mommy and Daddy's sunshine and you make us laugh and smile throughout every day.  You did not have a well baby visit this month so we will wait and see how big you are actually getting in a few months.  You are wearing size three diapers and you're all over the board in clothing size.  I official put away the 0-3 month clothes recently but you are still squeezing into 3-6 months as well as 6 months.  Your shoe size is a two.  This important information because you are a girl after your Mommy's love shoes!  Picking them out, playing with them, eating them, tapping your feet on the floor when you wear them.

You sit up so well on your own now and you're so close to crawling.  You lay on your belly and bounce your face and hips into the floor but you haven't gotten anywhere yet.  You are grabbing anything in your reach and putting it straight in your mouth...even your brother's toys.  Anytime you grab something of his, he takes it from you and says, "no, no, sister".  You added "mama" and "hey" to your vocabulary and grunt when you want something.  You've also started to protest when we take something form you.

You have expanded your culinary likes to puffs, yogurt, yogurt melts, cheese puffs and you love mum mums.  You love sitting in your highchair when we are eating and you were introduced to a sippy cup though it was not successful.

We have been out and about this month and you will smile at anybody that gives you the time of day.  We took you to see Dr. H. because you had a terrible cold.  You were pretty miserable but you kept smiling through it all.  You had some vaccinations this month and your brother called you "boo-boo girl" all week.  We have all picked up on it but it got shortened to "boo girl" and often just "boo".

We love you, our sweet smiley girl and look forward to what next month will bring.
