7 months (and 6 days!)

The baby girl turned 7 months last Monday, but we've been too busy to get the photos posted. In the last month she has grown a TON! She went from being just under 15 lbs. to being 16 lbs. 11 oz. in one month! It must be all of the yummy solid foods that she's been enjoying - in addition to the oatmeal, avocado, and mangos that she likes, we now know that she also likes carrots! She is just starting to drink water from a sippy cup, but mostly she enjoys either chewing on it or tossing it on the floor. She is scooting all over the place, and this week she has really started to push up on all fours. She's so, so close to crawling! She's also sitting up almost entirely on her own, which you can see below. She's becoming even more aware of her surroundings - she LOVES watching the dog and cat; she stops whatever she is doing just to stare at them (and she even gets to pet Syd's tail every now and then when he's feeling gracious). Unfortunately, this also means that she notices when mommy and daddy aren't around!

Finally, she fell down onto her tummy and took off after my camera strap! Pictures done.
