The 7th Month

Today, my beautiful little girl, you are 7 months old!  I seriously have no idea where the last 7 months have gone.  The time truly has flown by.  Your dad and I were just talking tonight about when you were first born and how tiny you were and how your little self would fit so snuggly on our chests.  Now, when you decide that you actually WANT to snuggle your long little legs hang off of us and you completely cover us! 
Things you have accomplished and amazed us with this last month:

* You have become so much more verbal...the coos and oohs and ahhs are more frequent.  As is the YELLING!  And when I say yelling... I mean uncontrolable, baby velocirapotor kind of yelling!!  Apparently you think this will get our attention....IT DOES!!!  We really can't help but laugh...but reallly, what the hell are you doing???  The sheer volume of noise that is coming out of your mouth is incredible....there is a possibility that you will loose your voice....we'll see how that works for ya!
* You CAN NOT sit still!!!  You stiffen your body and fling yourself about if you are unhappy with your current situation.  You've managed to escape you bumbo by doing just stiffen your body and roll your little self right out.....let me tell ya Houdini....stop doing that!!!  It freaks mommy out!  You're also able to pretty much sit all by yourself.  Except for a few spills and screaming fits, you do really well!
* You love to stand....this goes along with the not sitting still thing.  You are nosey and need to know whats going on with everyone and everything.  You aren't holding yourself up yet but you are bouncing and moving those little legs all over the place with our assistance.

* You roll EVERYWHERE.  We really can't leave you by yourself anywhere (not that we LEFT you before but we always have to have an eye on ya), you are a busy bee who is a moving and a groving!!  I give ya another couple of weeks and then God help us all because there is a possibility that you will be crawling! You are already into everything so I can hardly wait to see the shit that you get into then!
* You are starting to eat solids way more!  You seemed to be pretty picky at first but you have definitely gotten better.  You LOVE puffs!!!  And it's so cute because you put them in the side of your mouth like you are actually chewing them.  Way too cute if ya ask me!
* You have TWO toofers!!  Yes, TWO!!!  Along with these two teeth is double the drool and double the Diva.  You are pretty well soaked in drool everyday as is mommy and daddy.  We don't really care though....sometimes I care a little when the drool runs into my mouth...but then I get over it cuz...well...what the's just drool I guess!  The Divaness has increased but thats to be expected because you ARE my child!  I have no one to blame but my parents myself!
* Your favorite toys are mommy's phone, the remotes, the computer and pretty much anything else that someone else has....and if we don't give it to you...well SCREAM!!!  Remember the whole baby velociraptor thing...yeah...thats it!!!

* You and your two little besties (Carter and Belle) play so good with each other...sort of!!!  You are all learning to guys always want what the other has and then when you do get it you want the other thing...and it's just a vicious cycle but it's so much fun to watch the three of you together...screaming and yelling and crying in each others faces!!  I can't wait to see you guys grow together!
* You started swimming lessons this last month and totally love the water.  I'm so glad that we started it with ya....I want you to be used to the water.
* You have the BEST laugh.  Your dad can get you going so's probably the best noise in the whole world.  You love when we make up songs and sound like a bunch of ass holes or dance around like a bunch of ass holes....pretty much anything that we do to make us look like ass like!!!
* For a while you had totally gotten away from the whole snuggling thing but lately you let me snuggle with ya....I LOVE it!!!  I'm so glad that you've given that back to mommy and daddy!!

* We were finally able to go for your first walk outside...I know.. sad... but the weather finally just started getting nice enough!  You LOVE outside! 
* You love seeing yourself in the mirror or pictures of yourself.  It makes you laugh...which makes me laugh!  I don't blame ya...I love seeing pictures of you too!!!

I know I say this every month but you continue to amaze us and you continue to melt my heart every single day!!  You are the best thing that I've ever done and can't wait to see what this next month brings us....hopefully more cute and less Diva!!! 

I love ya little munchkin!!!
