Seven months

I think the biggest thing going on with this seven month old is that she wants her mama ALL THE TIME. It makes doing much of anything else kinda difficult sometimes, but I have to admit I will be sad when the pendulum swings to wanting daddy all the time.

Other new things:
Still no crawling, but she sometimes gets one knee under her for a second. So it's coming.
Sits up on her own
Still babbles a ton - ba is her favorite - but is starting to make little "pfff" blowing noises too
Finally weighs enough to use the Moby Go carrier!
Loves sucking her toes
Likes it when I flutter my fingers against her lips while she makes noises (so it sounds like "babababababa") - she tries to do it herself too

She's also a foodie. (Heh.) She has liked everything I've put in her mouth, and I've put some interesting things in her mouth. Besides the normal jarred/pouched food, I have made some (apples, sweet potatoes), and she sometimes gets bites of what I'm eating, including mild salsa, pickles, all kinds of sauces, lemon, and yesterday she had a couple of bites of cod. Yum. She's gonna be a good eater.

She also continues to be the happiest baby ever. She frequently babbles and sings herself to sleep, and barely fusses (unless mama leaves the room in the evening).

Love this kid.

    1. Thanks! :) But she's no Carter's baby, apparently - how'd they approach you?

  2. she is super adorable! Kate can't figure out crawling either, she's mastered slithering, and can get up on her knees, but can't figure out what to do next. Love the updates !
