Abby is 7 1/2 months old and I swear in the past week she has been hitting milestone after milestone!
It all started with her getting up onto her knees and crawling 1 or 2 paces… on the same day that she cut her first tooth!! I will admit that I cried a little when Noah got his first tooth, because I loved that gummy toothless smile. I didn’t with her though… she looks so cute with that little bit of white popping out through her gums. Her second tooth is right under the surface… so close that you can see it through the skin and I’m just waiting for it to pop through too.
She has gotten to be a little pro at crawling this past week and no longer army crawls. It takes her longer to do it the real way, but she is determined and loves every minute of it! She just gets this big grin on her face while she crawls… almost like she’s thinking to herself “Look what I can do! Now I can get to the cool toys!” and boy does she try! She loves playing with Noah’s cars… scratch that, she loves playing with any of Noah’s toys in general and prefers them over most of her own.
She also decided a few days ago that she wanted to move up in the world and has started pulling herself up onto her knees. She is moving so much faster that Noah did and it’s crazy. I have a feeling that she will be walking and talking much sooner than Noah was… though the only things she says so far are grunts, growls and gibberish.
She is still a great sleeper and goes down most of the time without much of a fuss. She’s really into her food and will let you know if you’re late in getting it to her. She’s still in size 3 diapers (has been for over 2 months) and is now wearing mostly size 6-9 month clothes. She’s a solid little girl… I’m not exactly sure of her weight right now, but if I had to guess… I would say she’s between 19 and 20 pounds. She adores her big brother and wants to be where ever he is and do what ever he’s doing.
She gives the best hugs ever! She snuggles up really close to you, wraps her little arms around your neck and then starts playing with your hair (or she pulls it… whatever…). She knows how to work her baby blues and can squeeze out giant sized crocodile tears faster than you can blink… she must have gotten her daddy’s drama gene!! 😉
I am so happy that she came into our lives and can not imagine a single day without her!
