Seven Months

Sweet little Avery, you are at such a fun age right now!  You are trying so hard to crawl!! You get up on your hands and knees and rock back and forth but when you try to move your arms you fall back to your belly.  You seem to realize how close you are to being mobile.  You can scoot around in a circle and can manage to go backward, just not forward!  You are reaching for everything, and you are so fast!  You don't miss a thing!   You still love to stand and are starting to try to pull yourself up.  You reach your hands up try to pull and look at me like, "a little help here would be nice".  Once you're up you can stand supported for a few minutes.

Your hair is finally starting to grow!! I cannot believe how much hair you had when you were born and then about 75% of it fell out!  It's coming in a little lighter than it was before and your bald spot is finally filling in :)

You are such a good baby.  You still go to bed around 7:30 and sleep 11-12 hours at night.  You are having four 7 oz bottles a day and baby food twice a day.  You seem to like just about everything I give you now, including gerber puffs!  You make a funny face at first but seem to enjoy them.  Speaking of eating, you got your first tooth (bottom left) about 2 weeks ago!!  You didn't seem phased by it at all!!

I absolutely love your sweet little laugh, it is so contagious!!!  Sometimes it is a challenge to get you to laugh.  I do something that you think is funny and you just laugh and laugh... but then I do the same thing the next day and you're already over it!!  It is so fun to watch you explore, you are a very quiet, observant baby.   I love your mild, easy-going temperament. 

You are such a blessing little girl, I fall more in love with you each and every day.


  1. I just adore your posts to her. I cannot believe she is 7 months. I feel like it was just last week we saw you both in church and you were still pregnant!

  2. I agree - I cannot believe she is already 7 months! Time is going by WAY too fast :( Soon she'll be one, walking and talking, dating...oh gosh.
