7 months

Paislee Marie, you are seven months old, and it has been the best (and most tiring) seven months of my life.

You weigh ~19 lbs. You are in size 3 diapers, and wear 9 & 12 month clothes. You're a little ham!

You are such a happy baby and you are constantly making me laugh. You are also very spoiled and make me want to kick myself and cry sometimes too ;0) You have recently become VERY clingy, making it hard to be away from you for a second (not that I want to be away from you). Sometimes you cry when I walk out of the room! Scratch that, MOST of the time. You're a mamas girl and I will take advantage of that for as long as I can, and I can only hope that it will last forever!

You are starting to become very mobile and it scares the crap out of me. You have been sitting on your own for months now, but now you are rolling around to get to where you want to go. On the way there, you stop anytime you see anything that could possibly fit in your mouth, and you go to town on it! You are also interested in little balls of lint and pieces of paper. Looks like mama will be needing a new vacuum!

You love to be entertained with funny faces and noises, and you're starting to mimic things that I do. Yesterday, I clapped my hands and said "yayyyyyyyy" and you copied me! I love watching you grow and learn new things every day, and I can't wait to watch you develop into a lovely young lady, but not too fast!

You don't really eat baby food anymore, you don't like it. Instead I feed you any vegetables that you can eat from my plate, and you seem to like it much better!

You sleep 10-12 hours at night, most of the time going to bed at 8:00, and waking up at 7:30. Lately you have been waking up a little earlier than I would like though ;0)

You have started drinking from a sippy cup, but only water. When you realize it's milk--you spit it out.

It has been a busy month for us! Daddy had to go away for work, so you and I flew down to North Carolina to visit family this month. You did great on the plane, and I hope I can say the same thing after we get back to Maine next week! Usually you are fine as long as you have mama and as long as you're being held ;0) I know your daddy can't wait to see you and how much you have grown!

I love you very much little girl!
