Abby is 7 Months!

My sweet girl turned 7 months old this week!

She is such a fun girl. She is a mover and shaker, which explains why she looks miserable in this picture where I made her lie down. She would much rather be crawling, standing, climbing, and exploring!

She loves to sing and talk to you and will do anything to get and keep your attention! She is making lots of sounds like "ooooh, dadda, lala, yaya, and babba."

She is very into her toys and books these days, and it is so much fun to watch her play. She likes to bang her toys, play her little piano, and her favorite game is probably dropping things from her high chair. :) Nothing makes me more happy than how excited she gets when we read a couple of her favorite books.

I love when she reaches out to be picked up, held, or hugged. Plus, she has mastered the "cling on to your shirt trick" when being put down for a nap. Sheesh.

Abby is loving her Stage 1 baby foods, she is down to 2 naps a day (usually), and wouldn't you know she is back to waking up twice at night? :) Hopefully by next month I will have had the strength to just say no.... here's to hoping!

On the Move

This week was a big one for the munchkin, and subsequently for her parents and grandparents as well!! The girl's on the move!

I knew from the day she was born when she literally lifted her head off my chest and looked around that she was one curious little booger! That curiosity just continues to grow - she wants to look at and study everything! And this week she decided that she was going to go over there AND. SEE. IT. HERSELF!

And pull up on it. And let go.

Granted, her little leggies aren't quite strong enough to stand on her own, and her balance isn't quite there yet.

But chica is definitely going for it.

Love her.


P.S. Yes, that's her Common Grounds onesie. :) "Sleep is Overrated."
