{Happy SEVEN Months Baby Girl}

 Has it already been 7 whole months with this little buttery biscuit? It can't be?
 I can't believe it. I don't want to believe it..... 

This roly poly chunky butt has brought so much joy to our family. Her brother is obsessed with her-we're all obsessed with her (even if he sat on her head recently.....) I can't even remember life before she was here. I already see characteristics of her personality coming through. Just like when Conrad was a baby, he was a very reserved, calm, cautious baby & as he's grown, he is still a lot like he was as a little tiny man. She is very curious, silly, outspoken, content to be touched and to touch, I can see sparks of compassion in her already, & she has a tender heart. She doesn't have a "comfort" toy, pacifier or blanket. Instead, she insists on holding whatever hair she can get her hands on. Daddy's chest hair, beard, my pony tail or grandma's bangs.... if she can just hold onto it, she's happy. She sucks her pointer finger, but usually only when she's tired. She hasn't had solids yet or cereal. We're waiting as long as we can to introduce them so that her belly is nice and matured. She loves cuddling in bed with Conrad and watching Bear In The Big Blue House at night after bath time or reading books before bed on Dustin's lap. She is working on her two bottom teeth coming through, but she's been a trooper. It hasn't bothered her sleep schedule much yet. She goes to bed around 7:00 and sleeps all night-gets up around 6:30. If she's not up by then, we wake her up so she doesn't get off of her schedule much. She takes 2 1 1/2- 2 hour naps in the day and LOVES when Conrad wakes her up by being placed next to her in her crib. She hates her car seat. When I put her in it, she arches her back and fusses until I clip the buckle and she can get to her pointer finger to calm herself. Her favorite toys are Conrad's musical instruments. She's learning not to hit herself in the face with the drumsticks.... we're working on it.

She's not crawling yet, but scooting and kicking her legs. (Big bro crawled at 8 months & walked at 13 months). She's obviously much chubbier than big bro, which I love.

{Bobbie} took photos of Conrad when he was 7 months old at her house and I wanted to recreate those photos but with Elle, in the same outfit and with the same toys. I took these photos at my friend Sarah's house. You can compare and see if you think they look similar at this age.


{Happy seven months, darling.}

  3. Oh mylanta. Thank you so much for sharing these. Conrad and Elle look SO similar at this age! I can't wait to see what she looks like when she's Conrad's age. AH! Btw, so precious how she sucks on her pointer finger. My niece does that, but she sort of started this biting her nail thing before she even had teeth. SO precious. Love you, girl.
