G at seven months

Today she is officially seven full months old.

Whew. I don't know where month seven of G's life went?? It was full of giggles, playdates, illness, travel, cries, and mobility.

Home weight: 16.3 lbs
Home length: 27"

Dear G,

This month you tried lots of new foods! Peaches, Apples, Pears, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Peas. You like them all. So far, you really enjoy eating. You've also drank from a sippy cup on several occasions--you like to hold it yourself, but haven't figured out how far back you need to hold your head.
This month you loved playing around other babies. We met up with Justina, Theo (& Siena), and also went to the Parents as Teachers playgroup. You like to crawl up to other babies and investigate them--sometimes trying to eat them.
This month you loved musical toys. Anything that sings, plays a tune, or jingles fascinates you. You also have recently started playing your little grand piano more.

 This month your sleep was crazy and very unpredictable. Some nights you slept through, while others you woke up 4 times. I try to do everything the same, but it doesn't seem to matter.
This month you got sick. You're still getting over whatever kind of tummy bug you caught. I hate it, because I can't do anything for you. You don't even want to snuggle sometimes.
This month you went to 'daycare' for the first time--at the gym. You love their jumparoo. I love getting to exercise more often.
This month we went to Grammy's house, got a new car, and spent time with family for Labor Day.
This month you got faster at army crawling and have pulled up from a sitting position. It's a tough workout for you, and you get really frustrated doing it. You don't pull yourself into a sitting position from laying down, but if you are sat up, you can pull yourself to standing.
This month, no teeth appeared. I'm crazy. You've gone through teething, I know you have, but no teeth to report...yet.
This month your giggles have gotten insanely cute. They were sweet before, but now you start giggling and it turns into a full on laugh. OMG, I can't get enough. Your daddy always makes you laugh, he loves it sooooo much, too!
We skyped with Grammy for the first time this month, you always try to eat the camera.
We've gone on lots of walks and trips to the store this month. You love being outside--especially now that it's so nice out! You now ride on my hip or back in the Gemini.

I'm sure I'm missing parts, but that's because you're growing so quickly! I love you so much little girl, you're amazing.

Love, momma
