My Baby is 7 Months!

This picture cracks me up!
Mama and Baby love. And the penguin, too.
Trying strawberries for the first time! She didn't actually bite it, since she doesn't have any teeth and all...

She crawled backwards right into her "cave".
One of her very few happy moments the past few weeks.
Sucking her thumb! These have got to be my favorite pictures.
Family love!
She's so precious.
Anything anyone has, she wants it. All the time.

I can't believe how fast time has flown by! Although in the thick of things, it seemed like time could not go fast enough! But here we are...7 months since I birthed this beautiful and amazing child. She always does something new and exciting. Every day. She is so close to crawling, it isn't even funny. Every single time we put her on her back, she rolls right over to her belly. It is the cutest thing ever. When I kiss her elbow, she laughs the heartiest laugh I have ever heard. When she's on her belly and not rocking back and forth (her new trick!), she will flail her little arms and legs about and it is hilarious! She talks all the time and has the sweetest voice I have ever heard. Every time I look at her, she smiles and that just melts my heart. Whenever anyone has anything, she wants it. It doesn't matter what it is. The past few times I've been in a restaurant, she has sucked on the bottom of my glass. It's kinda gross, but she likes the cold and it keeps her quiet! She always wants my cell phone, too. Or the camera. Or the laptop. She's my pride and joy. She's funny, beautiful, talented and oh so smart. I can't wait to see what the future brings. And I hope it brings more sleep for us both. 

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl! We love you!

So big! There is a saying that goes something like, "the days are long, but the years are short." I think that sums babyhood up perfectly.
