As you turn seven months old, I must tell you, you are just becoming a beautiful little girl. Physically, you have always been striking - people have been telling your dad and me that since you came out of the womb in the operating room. But, your personality is really what makes you beautiful.
You have just perfected crawling, which made your dad say, "Look! She's crawling like a little baby!" I think he thought you would crawl more like a wolverine, since the screaming lately has made you appear more like that animal than an infant. Also, many times when you crawl, you try to stand up, but you are only a tiny baby, so you just end up doing the "downward dog" yoga position.
You love oatmeal and peas, and you are giving other foods a shot too. You don't really like bananas, but when we mix them with your oatmeal, you eat it and give us dirty looks.
|This picture does you no justice. You're quite adorable and don't have demon eyes.|
Today, two days after you turned seven months old, we took you to the park. Your little eyes were closed against the sun nearly the whole time. Your dad gave you a stick and you wielded it like it was your wand. Even when you fell over, you didn't put the stick down to right yourself. We laughed and you were stoic.
I cannot wait until I am able to stay home with you full-time. I know we are going to have so much fun learning together and playing together. You are so absolutely precious to me and your dad, Daphne. We.Love.You!
