Lolo - 7 mths


You are 7 months old!  Can you believe it?!  I can't!  Pretty soon we are going to be celebrating your one year birthday, unbelievable!  You are so so sweet!  Such a happy little girl.  You hardly ever cry.  You just love life!  How did we get so lucky to have such a great baby? :)

Your little personality continues to blossom.  This month we started doing baby led weaning instead of feeding you pureed baby foods.  You love this so much more.  I really thought you just hated food until I let you feed yourself.  One of the main reasons we did this was because your daddy found an article online that showed what was really was in baby food! No way was I feeding you that!  You love bananas, pears, apples,  and sweet potatoes.  You also love your sippy cup and drinking water from it.  You get so excited everytime I hand you your cup.  If you see mommy or daddy with a cup of water you immediately think it is your water and grab it and put it to your mouth.  It's pretty funny the look of determination you get in your face. 

You are sitting up so good on your own.  You are still talking/babbling away and squealing at times.  You have started reaching for us when we pick you up after work.  It's the sweetest thing.  You recently found your tongue and love sticking it out.  You started mocking your daddy the other night by blowing your tongue at him after he did it to you. 

You went on your first vacation this month to Branson and did so well! 

You have started playing by yourself some in the mornings while we are getting ready.  You love your stackable bowls and sophie. 

You have two bottom teeth coming in at the same time.  You handled them so well and was only fussy one day. 

You have become a little attached to your little blankie.  Recently you started falling asleep on your own for naps in the swing if you are given your lovey.  Now we just have to transition you out of that swing into your pack-n-play for naps...You sleep so well in the pack-n-play at night, but we just aren't quite ready to get out of the swing for naps yet. 

Your cousin Lexi just adores you.  When Aunt Shannon watches you and I come to pick you up, Lexi makes sure to tell me that you are "her mama's wowo" and "no no coco."  She even went so far as to cry so hard because I came to get you.  It was pretty cute.  I hope you guys become best buddies!

The amount of joy you bring to our lives is just unbelievable sweet girl.  We love you so so much!  I don't know how I can grow to love you more everyday, but I do.  I thank God for you every single day and for letting me be your mama :)
