Happy 7 months, Baby B!


Dear B-

Mommy is getting worse at remembering your month-iversaries? Birthmonthdays? Whatever. But, I managed to take one picture on the 29th and a couple other were super close, so I’m calling it a win!

Happy 7 months

Everybody comments on just how happy you are. You really are pretty happy. Except when you aren’t happy. And then you are mad, mad, mad. But most of the time, the mad is only at home. You really thrive on being out and about and while I have a rough outline of a schedule for you, you sort of basically tell me in not so many cries that you don’t really care.

You are getting very long, it seems but still pretty slender relatively speaking.

You have a lot of skills now. You babble and coo and love to hear your own voice. It’s not surprising coming from mommy’s side of the family. You sit up all by yourself. You are a rolling wizard and can easily get onto all fours. And you can rock up on all fours, too. Please don’t be our earliest crawler. From all fours, you can push yourself up into a sitting position like a champ. I am amazed at your skills. You must just take it all in.

At the beginning of the month, I noticed you putting your hands together, but pretended not to count it. But, you kept doing it and go so excited when I said “yay” that I knew you got it. You are a clapping machine. You clap for yourself, when mommy comes to get you from bed, and when your sisters do something that pleases you. You are a real encourager.

You really like it when people sing to you, give you their direct attention and talk to you. You very much dislike it if somebody turns their back to leave the room or especially when mommy goes out of sight. 

Happy 7 months

Basically, you fit right in and couldn’t be more perfect for us. Besides waking up at least once a night to nurse, you are pretty low maintenance and a go-with-the-flow baby.

We love you, Baby B!
