7. Freakin'. Months! we're are now closer to her being a year old, then we are to her being just born. it's weird, but that's how i think of it when i say she's 7 months. luckily i'm not at all sad about the fact that she's becoming such a big girl because it really does just keep getting more and more fun. she's got a handful of tricks now (like this one HERE), and she's starting to understand that she can be funny, so she does these little tricks interchangeably and knows how to crack her mama and papa up just right.
she's also a really good eater so far. at 7 months she's still predominantly nursing, but she also likes anything and everything we've offered her, including lentils, quinoa, avocado, black beans, mango, cauliflower, and your obvious baby food choices like apples, sweet potatoes, and green beans. i know that it's really toddlerhood where they get picky, but i'm so grateful for a good eater so far.
she's full on mobile now too. the other day i spent most of my time on my hands and knees baby proofing our home. i wanted to see exactly what she would be getting in to, so i crawled around cleaning floors and baseboards, covering electrical outlets, and moving breakables to higher shelves. a baby on the go is pretty exhausting to say the least! thankfully she makes up for being a handful all day by sleeping through the night still. penny, i thank you for that!
here's to another month of sweet sweet baby hugs, slobbery kisses, and the greatest snuggles one could ask for!
