Life with a 7 month old

I LOVE this age. Lucy is so much fun. I've said that a million times, but she really is. She becomes more interactive every day, and it seems like a new skill is learned almost every day too. There are tons of pictures b/c I haven't posted in a while, and here are some things she's doing at 7 months:

  • Says "dada" a LOT. We're still unsure if she has associated the word with her Daddy
  • I SWEAR she attempts to say "Heidi". It comes out more like "Hey duh" or "Hee duh". Its comforting that she tries to say the dog's name before Mommy's.
  • She tries to pull up on everything, but is usually unsuccessful without mommy's help
  • She prefers to eat whatever we are eating, and is on a nice breakfast, lunch, and dinner schedule, which makes feeding her and eating at the same time really easy
  • Her favorite toy is Heidi. Fortunately Heidi is very tolerant and lets Lucy do whatever she wants to her poor ears, face, and tail.
  • She's back to sleeping until 8am every morning. (thank you time change!)
  • We're working on playtime alone (independent playtime for you babywisers...) and she's up to 20 minutes in her pack n play without ANY whining. (this is a big accomplishment since we started with 10 minutes of all out screaming)
  • She is very social, but is starting to show her shy side whenever people come talk to her, especially people she knows. She usually buries her head on my shoulder, and after a few minutes warms up and starts smiling and talking to them. For some reason she warms up immediately to complete strangers.
  • There is no silence in our house. Except during naptime. She talks or laughs constantly.
  • Her favorite place to be is outside on a blanket.
  • She understands the word "no", but chooses to test it anyway. She definitely has mommy's strong personality. It's amazing how quickly their little personalities come out.

She's almost mastered the sippy cup. Sometimes she still tries to suck out of it while it's turned upside down.

Just another fun day at Wal-Mart

Celebrating Aunt Mer's birthday

Standing while holding on to her music table

Check out that stance

Love that sweet face.

Her 7 month picture. She can't hold still for one second.


I love this one of her outside. She's wearing the new dress Grandpa Michael got for her.

Trying to pull up on the tub. That's a no!

She claps whenever someone says, "yay!"
