Seven Months Old!

Time is a cruel, cruel thing.  Yes, I realize she's not yet a year and she's not yet starting college or anything "major" like that...but seriously!? Where does the time go?

Ok, I'll stop now.

She's seven months old today, this one.  And she's just a bundle of joy.

At last appointment she was 16.6 pounds...I imagine she's closing in (or is already) around 17 pounds now.

Major Milestones:
*This has been a big month for her!  She started eating solids and so far has tried:  bananas, plums, peaches, avocado, green beans, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, rice cereal, oatmeal, and extra soft baby crackers.  She's not really in to the greens that much (surprise!) and loves the fruits (another surprise!)-haha.
*She's also started kind of crawling...but only backwards.  I guess maybe it should be called scooting backwards and not crawling.  It's too funny.
*She can kind of wave, but it has to be when she's focused and not tired, of course.
*Girl TALKS like crazy.  She's all about vocalizing whatever goes on in that little brain.  No real sounds or word resemblances yet, just mainly babbling, but babble she does!

*She loves rolling all around in her crib and putting her legs up on the side.
*She's got a great pincer grasp and always goes for the little things, which I find adorable.
*She doesn't mind being passed from person to person and is generally happy.
*She can hold her sippy cup the right way and can even drink small amounts of water from it correctly.
*She's super curious.  Anything and everything around her she wants to get her hands on...particularly glasses, books, hair, and all things that aren't toys, ha.
*She's not the world's best nurser (she gets distracted easily).  She's nursing about 4 times a day now, with an occasional 5 times a day thrown in here and there.  She's on a rough schedule, but depending on the day, things can change.  I'm good with it.

Two of my favorites from our "shoot":

Serious love for those tiny toes.

And then she reached her breaking point...

Alright, ma, seriously...I need a nap.

That's it.  I'm so over this camera thing.  (such a drama queen ;)

Elise Noelle, you're da bomb.  We LOVE you to the moon and back.
