Lilly is 7 Months Old...

You are 7 months old, now! Here's what you've been up to this month:

You are sitting up SO well! You can also scoot around on your belly, but I'm still thinking it will be a while before you are actually crawling.

You said your first word this month: Dada!!! You are babbling SO much now, and your squeals absolutely melt our heart. I just love it when you get excited about things and start is so precious!

You also had your first day at "school" this month. You did great, but from what I hear you were REALLY excited to see Mamie when she picked you up! You stay at Mamie and B Bob's house every Wednesday night because Mommy has to work and Daddy has choir practice. You do so well at their house. I know they spoil you rotten, but we REALLY miss you!!!

You got a new "big girl" car seat this month, and you LOVE it! The first time I put you in it, you squealed the whole ride!

Your eating is still about the same. You eat baby food 3 times a day and have about three bottles a day.

You've started REALLY loving bath time.

You have definitely discovered your feet. Every show or sock I put on you, you manage to get off before we can get out of the house!

For the most part, you are a great sleeper, but you have been waking up at night for the last week or so. I'm thinking it's either teething or a growth spurt. Sometimes you will go back to sleep pretty quick, but other times you are starving and you want a bottle. You will also wake up and play in your crib for a while, talking and sputtering, and then you will just fall back asleep. Mommy and Daddy still consider ourselves EXTREMELY blessed in the sleep department!

You wore your first cardigan this month, and I think you looked ADORABLE!!

Daddy read you your first book and you were fascinated. I think you really enjoyed it!

I know I say this every month, Lilly, but I truly can't believe how fast you are growing up. It seems like just last week we brought you home from the hospital and just stared at you for hours not really believing that you were so perfect and that you were ours. You will never be able to comprehend how much Daddy and I love you and how obsessed we are with you. Every day, you have a new trick or sound you make that makes us smile! Your sweet, outgoing personality is beginning to shine, and Daddy and I are SO proud of you. You will never know how many times you've melted our hearts! We love you to the moon and back. Happy 7 months, sweet baby!
