7 months

Dear Lovie,

Seven short months ago, my life, thankfully, was forever changed the moment I heard your first holler out to the world. And the moment I finally got to see what you looked like, my heart filled with so much more love to give to you. I had no doubts I wanted to be your mommy, I had no doubts I would love you the way a child is meant to be loved, but I just never knew how much that love could grow- and on a daily basis! And it’s sincerely all because of you, my sweet girl.

Life with you these past seven months have been so incredibly rich and an absolute dream come true. You’re a healthy, thriving child whose smile and laughter can brighten the darkest of days. You love to sit back and observe absolute everything around you. And once you’ve grown accustomed to some one or some thing, you love to interact and be involved. Your favorite things are: 
  • the Seahorse (still)
  • stuffed animals (this has been a recent discovery but you get so much delight whenever you play with a stuffed animal: you love squeezing and nomming on them)
  • sitting and playing
  • nomming on the mesh feeder with frozen fruit
  • drinking water from the sippy cup (though you can get easily frustrated when the sprout thing pushes in- particularly if it’s almost nap or bedtime)
  • the “dining room” light fixture (you will actually smile at it sometimes)
  • Zoe the kitty cat, which I think you’ve actually said (Kitty cat)! I’ve let you pet her a couple times and you get so excited when you see her now though I’m terrified that she’ll be mean to you or scratch you with her deadly claws.
  • rolling onto your tummy at bedtime
  • sleeping on your tummy
  • scooting around the crib
  • getting into the crawling position (this is a very recent activity and you’re super close to crawling)
  • locking your legs into the standing position whenever we go to put you down or get you into the high chair
  • playing with the toys on your high chair
  • nomming on books
  • playing with your toys in the play pen
  • playing with toys out in the open and trying to crawl (until you get frustrated)
  • eating fruits
  • playing/trying to eat your little ducky in the bathtub
  • saying dadadada
  • squealing, screeching, screaming in delight
  • grabbing and touching ev.er.y.thing
  • yanking off my glasses
  • being the best, most awesomest, most sweetest, most cutest baby in the world

As tired as I am by the end of every day, I’ve never felt so rejuvenated, so alive in my life.

Happy 7 Months, my love!!
