7 months tomorrow

I cannot believe how fast the last 7 months have gone by.  A friend of mine recently said when her son turned 1 year old, "Never has a year with so many long nights passed so quickly."  Isn't that the truth!  Miss A is now sitting up, eating many different solids, about ready to crawl and incredibly social.  She loves the outdoors and meeting new people as long as those people are women - she has something against men who are not her daddy!  She is starting to sleep unswaddled and in a sleep sack on her tummy, a day I thought would never come.  She loves her Maclaren baby backpack, but hates the Ergo and all slings.  She is in love with the baby in the mirror.  She likes to try to kiss and hug her.  I am also the lucky recipient of hugs and kisses making her daddy jealous because he has yet to receive either...poor guy.  But maybe it is because he makes her do things like this...

This is how I found them the other morning after I finished doing the dishes.  Poor thing is being taught to balance checkbooks and pay bills at the ripe old age of 7 months!  I feel so lucky that I have been given another 4 weeks to spend with Miss A.  I am feeling that anxious feeling again as the new school year starts in about 2 weeks!  And again I have to remind myself to enjoy the time I have with her and not stress about the time I do not.

I hope everyone had fun celebrating Father's Day this past weekend.  I know we did!  Happy Monday!


  1. This year is flying by, isn't it? Camden just turned 7 months old yesterday. I can't believe it. He is also turning into a belly sleeper. As usual, Avery is just as cute as she can be- even while balancing a checkbook! :)

  2. Okay. my love. I cannot believe how stinkin' cute and BIG she is! I can't wait to see her in less than three weeks! Oh yes, and she DEFINITELY has your eyes. I know those eyes like the back of my hand...gorgeous, gorgeous!
