7 months

I'm in utter disbelief that my itty bitty baby is closer to being one than she is to being my newborn.
I've been told many times that the second child (and I'm assuming all children after your first) grows up very fast. Yeah sure she is only 7 months old, but before I know it I'm sure she will be 7, then 17 (Oh how I dread those years... teenager girls...). Okay so I'll get off my bandwagon about how my girls are growing up too fast.



Here is what Miss Emmy is up to these days....

*Crawling and getting fast! She has discovered life beyond our little 8x10 rug in our family room.

*Pulling up and standing on anything she can... including things she is not suppose to. Emma is going to learn the word "no" pretty soon. She is definitly our little dare devil!

*She is eating a little bit of baby food. She has "tried" all of the Stage 1 foods and likes most the veggies to eat a few bites and a handfull of times she has eaten half a jar. This is much improvement from last month and better than Grace ever did with solids. She is also eating rice cereal and oatmeal and we are working on the fruits. She isn't a fan of fruits though... I guess they are just too sour? They sure do taste good to me! Oh and I was able to drop a feeding, so she is usually nursing 4 times a day.

*Emma enjoys her days with just her and mommy, but is SO happy when we go pick up sister. I think she misses her when she is at school.

*She is also going through a mommy stage. Separation anxiety has officially begun. I've handed her off a couple times in the last couple weeks to do something quickly, only to return (after seconds) and she is in a full cry. Of course once she is back in my arms all is okay. Little stinker.



Well off to go hang out with my hubbie and girls. Until next month!! :)
