Here’s lookin’ at you, cutie-pie!
Growth spurt much?
Weighing in at 22 pounds, you definitely do not look like a seven month old baby. You’re still wearing size 4 diapers and 9-12 month clothes.
The time has come to put you in a bigger carseat; Your feet hang over the carrier!
Now that you’ve passed the halfway mark of your first year, it saddens me to think of you closer to a toddler, rather than an infant. I often look through the last seven months of pictures and videos that take up the entire storage capacity of my phone… This is just happening so fast! Time sure flies when you’re having fun! My heart overflows with joy!
Da-da was your first “word” this month, and you string those “da’s” together all of the time. You sure do love your daddy! The way your face lights up when he sings the Mickey song to you… the way his face lights up when yours does…
I never knew how much I loved your daddy until I saw how much he loves you.
We have a crawler! On July 7th, 2015, you finally went from rocking to rolling… aka full-on – hands and knees – crawling! You are on the move and you have no problem chasing us around the house. I hope to always remember the sound of those fat, little hands slapping the tile as you explore.
You are fascinated with the vacuum cleaner and love to chase it around. You mostly love the cord though!
Not only are you now crawling, but you want to be up, up, up! You are pulling up on everything you can get your hands on! Nothing is safe!
All throughout this month, you have made the cutest little face, which I have assumed is comforting to your gums. You will suck in your bottom lip and make a sucking sound (think Maggie from the Simpsons).
Then, without a warning, two teeth popped through in the same week!
Your diet consists of every little thing you can get your hands on. We’ve conquered all Gerber stage 1 and 2 foods, and you love fresh fruit. You’re not a fan of avocado, but we’re going to keep trying if you’re going to be a kid in this house!
One of my very favorite moments from this month was when you got into your daddy’s DVD collection and started pulling them all out onto the floor. One day I will tell you how many times he swore his child would never do that, but for now… I will leave you with this:
Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
