My sweet little 7 month old

Baby Lily turned 7 months old on March 17th. I think I thought she would always stay 6 months old, but she keeps on growing! She is a good baby and life with her just keeps getting better and better.

At 7 months, Lily has started to push up onto all fours in preparation for crawling. She likes to be on her belly now and wiggle all around. She can rotate and scoot around in a circle and sometimes, even backwards. She also likes to sit up like a big girl and bite on her toys. This little 7 month old just started getting her first tooth! On Sunday, she was yawning at church and Brett said “Either that spot on her gums is a spit bubble or she is getting her first tooth!” so we started digging around her mouth and found a tiny white tooth poking through. It looks so small! We hugged her and kissed her and said “poor baby!” because she has been so fussy and now we know why. Lily also started babbling and saying “a-ba-ba-ba-ba.” It is really the cutest thing ever.

Lily loves to eat. Her favorite foods are rice cereal, pears, prunes, peaches, sweet potatoes, carrots, and peas, which is a shocker since she didn’t like it the first time we gave it to her. Now, I can’t shovel it in fast enough! The food she hates the most is green beans. She will take one bite and make the cutest face of disgust and refuse to eat anymore. Sometimes, I have to trick her by dipping it in to a fruit first before I give it to her. We still have lots of foods to introduce to her, but so far she’s liked everything except for those bad green beans.

Lily loves, loves, loves her Daddy. As soon as she sees Brett, her face lights up, she smiles really big and starts to coo at him. He makes her laugh like no one else can. They have so much fun together. She is definitely a Daddy’s girl!

But she still loves her Mommy.

Lily was being silly in the Jumperoo yesterday, dancing around and sticking her tongue out. She just barely started sticking her tongue out yesterday and I think it is so funny!

I’m so enchanted with this girl! It seems like there is so much development just about to burst right out of her. It’s been so much fun to watch her learn, play and interact with her toys, “talk,” sit up, and begin to develop a personality. I’m so grateful for this sweet baby! Just don’t grow up too fast, my darling!
