Mostly, I find it difficult to carve out a block of writing time. I figured on using most of the minutes I waste on surfing the web, to write a blog.....but nope, doesn't work like that. I'm not frittering away quite as much time on the internet, but finding thirty minutes to sit down and think through a post hasn't happened. I'll keep working on it though because I know I miss seeing all of you regularly and hopefully you miss us too ( I know you miss Abigail, that's a given :o).
Without further rambling, here is her 7 month picture:
I think she's fallen in love with the camera, she really puts on a show whenever I bring it out. :o)
|Plus, she cracks herself up.|
Things she can do at 7ish months:
-Crawl. She doesn't rush off across the floor, but neither have I seen her belly flop in at least a week.
- Eat food. This has truthfully been a slow process, she's interested in a couple of bites but not a lot more. I've started grinding most things and that helps (thanks Mom for the new blender/grinder!)
Her current favorites are: meat, of any kind, but especially beef.
hot cereal all mushed up.
- Pull to standing! She figured it out last Thursday and now 45% of her days are now spent doing this. She thinks it's great fun even though 50% of her time standing is actually spent on the floor crying because she knocked her noggin' on the way down. The pain is apparently worth it.
- Jabber in consonants. This girl loves to talk ( surprise, surprise?) and if i could capture it on film I would, but she clams up when I pull out the video camera. She can say the 'dada' and 'mama' sounds but she doesn't associate them with us; at least that we can figure. And the 'mama' only comes out when she's whining. :o)
My favorite trick she has is clapping. Which she does a lot, even while standing (which results in another knock to the noggin') and has a huge smile on her face the whole time. She'll clap her hands together or whatever she happens to be holding in them; I love it.
|Amy, the blocks are a winner!|
