So yea, she is now 8 months, but I'm just getting around to posting her 7 month picture and update. If you only knew the half of the craziness that has been our life! I finished orientation at the hospital last night so we are on the verge of a much calmer existence (at least we have our fingers crossed for that). I'm only going to work one or two nights a week! So much better than three!
Anyway, this kid is so awesome. Looking back at my letter to her - at seven months she had gotten the hang of sitting up all on her own and had broke her first tooth! She got the bottom, right, front one in first and then not too long later the other bottom front came in. She didn't seem too bothered by them, but she does sleep crappy the nights they break through. Unfortunately, the first one came through on a night that Grant was on his own and I was working. He practically threw Edrie at me in the morning. Poor guy - he was so exhausted! At seven months she was also taking big strides in trying to eat. She had tried...banana, roasted cauliflower, avocado, salsa, tomato, apple, pear, mango (a favorite!), broccoli, carrots, hummus (she loves!), butternut squash (she couldn't get enough), potatoes (she adores!), and more. At that time she was definitely swallowing a bit, but mostly she just gnawing on things and trying them for flavor. She is so much fun and gets more independent ALL the time. She likes to sit on a quilt and play with her toys - gets them all out of the basket, examining and tasting them. Then she squaks and flaps her arms when she is ready for something new!
The outtakes from 7 months...
oh my goodness - those lips!
check out the thighs! I LOOVE to squeeze them!
