Emily | Seven Months

Officially closer to one than that newborn phase.  It certainly doesn't feel like it has been that long, but somehow it has.  Little things pop up everyday that remind me that our last baby is growing up... the swing is too small, she needs to eat dinner with us and don't even get me started on how she is flying through clothing sizes.

Emily at 7 months...

.You are rocking mostly size 12 month clothing, a size your sisters didn't get to for another few months.  I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping that all of the holiday outfits fit you when they fit your sisters.  My mama heart might break if you can't wear the same outfits your sisters wore when it comes Christmas time.

.You are pretty firmly in size 4 diapers, but we did have to rock some size 5 of your sisters when we ran out of yours for a day.. and they fit a lot better than I expected.

.You said your first word this month, "dada".  No breaking from tradition in this household.

.You are obsessed with Diesel.  You stare at him whenever he is within your eyesight.  He's still pretty indifferent and makes his exit swift when you get ahold of his fur.

.You give the best hugs.  When mama picks you up, you wrap your little arms around my neck and squeeze.  Same goes for dada, but you run your fingers through his beard as if identifying him as your dad.

.You still have two big fans in your sisters.  They fawn and hover over you like you are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

.You love food.  Eating one assisted sitter pureed food every night at dinner.  You also enjoy licking all of our food when given the chance to taste it.

.You are SO close to confidently sitting up by yourself.  I prop a pillow behind your back and you can sit like that for quite awhile.  You love sitting up and it is probably your new favorite position.

.You pass out smiles like parents pass out candy at Halloween.  It is the best.

.You still are not much of a napper.  You take short ones here and there and that is about it.  Sometimes I can get you down for a decent one in the afternoon in your crib, but that is pretty rare.

.You are very easy going and mostly go with the flow but you love to be in your bed by about 8.

.You have light brown hair right now that looks a bit red because of your cradle cap.

.You still nurse a lot.  First thing in the morning, mid morning, after lunch, before daddy gets home and before bed.  You like to nurse to sleep at nap time, but put yourself to sleep at bedtime.

.You have some stranger danger and don't like it when mama is out of your view. But otherwise you are pretty easy going.

Emily girl, mama loves you so very much.  Watching your little personality emerge has seriously been so much fun and I can't wait to see how the next stage of babyhood is going to go.  We love you so.
