A few days late on my 7 months post. Finally took a few photos today as this week has been nuts but more on that later. This has been such a great month with her (besides sleeping) but she is getting to be so fun and her little personality has really showed itself. She is crawling around like a mad women, getting into everything possible. Her toys are kinda whatever now and crawling all over the furniture is her number one mission. I haven't officially baby proofed as I'm in the midst of making her a playroom but I'm trying to teach her to stay away from things. I don't like to say "no" to her so I try and explain to her "don't touch" or "that's dangerous." I know it seems silly but I want a reason with things not just a quick no. Obviously there are times when a sudden NO needs to be said but for now we'll see if this way works. She is pretty responsive most of the time and if I call her name and tell her not to go over (to whatever dangerous place she is headed) she turns around. I think it's more the tone of my voice. Of course it doesn't always work but we'll get there. She loves pulling herself up on the couch and dancing around. She can move around pretty quickly on her two feet when holding on to something. She loves chasing the dog. Sierra is finally kinda starting to show an interest and for the first time yesterday played with her.
She talks and talks but still just mamma and dadda and babba. I think she says "hi" cause I always say that to her and I think she has figured out how to copy me. Copying is such a big thing. She will watch something I do and immediately try it. Pretty much the cutest thing to watch those little wheels turn in the head. She just started doing this thing where she shakes her head back and forth. She thinks its the funniest thing in the world. She can throw a ball and she is favoring her left hand. I know they say you can't tell at this age but she mostly throws with her left. She loves pounding her fists down and banging toys down. I think its the noise? She is obsessed with grabbing my face especially when nursing. Oh and the hair pulling. Totally brutal. Wearing my hair down isn't an option anymore unless I want chunks to end up in Olive's little hands.
We've introduced a few more foods like apples, pears, and zucchini and she still seems to love them all. I want to start trying two meals a day but so far its been kinda tricky to get used to that but we'll get there. She still loves the boob and eats every 3 hours. I can't believe how fast she can eat now. I remember in the first few months when she would nurse for almost 45 min to an hour at a time. Now its literally like 2 min and she is done.
I love to dance with her and she gets so excited and laughs when I get goofy and dance around the house while holding her. She is always up for a game of peek-a-boo and will use any toy she has to cover her face.
I just love her to pieces!!!
A few silly videos......
