7 Months

Elle-my-belle my darling daughter,
This has been quite the month for milestones! You are growing and changing every day! I feel like this last month has flown by, I feel like we will be celebrating your 1 year birthday before we know it!

This month
*You weigh 15lbs 9oz
*You eat about every 3 hours and eat 3 "meals" a day
*You are in a SIZE 2 disposable diaper!!!! Even though we only use those when we are on-the-go
*You are in some 3 month clothes, but you can wear some 3-6 month and you even wore a 6 month onesie. GASP!
*You are sleeping from around 7:00pm until around 6:00am and then you eat and most of the time go back to sleep until 7:00-7:30 (except the mornings when mommy reeeeeeallllly wants you to)
*You take more consistent naps now for around1.5-2.5 hours.

You are always on the go. I don't even think you know how to sit still! This month you started crawling on all fours, you learned to sit up, you started pulling yourself up on the furniture, you started climbing all over everything (especially me), AND  you got your first tooth! Phew, I am tired just thinking about all you accomplished this month! You have started standing in your crib, I don't like that. It makes me nervous.
You had your first experience swimming fourth of July weekend, and you loved it!
You have discovered that you can make your hands open and close and you will catch them out of the corner of your eye and then stare at them in amazement while you make them move. It cracks me up. You have started laughing more and are such a smiley girl...when you want to be! Everyone comments one how you are such a serious girl. You don't think you have to smile back just because someone smiles at you, you are very observant and like to take in your surroundings. You don't have much patience, when you want something you want it now. You let us know when you are tired, hungry, done playing in your jumper, or when we aren't feeding you fast enough.
We had a sleepover with your Aunt and cousins last week and you had so much fun playing with climbing all over your cousins. It is going to be so much fun when we all go on vacation with each other!
Looks like someone was napping on their hand!

It is so amazing to watch you change and grow. We love you so much and are excited to see what God has in store for your future. I am so excited to see your personality take shape. You are such a sweet little girl and a wonderful blessing to our lives.
