7 months old

(started July 20)

Dear Makayla,

Today you are 7 months old. Time is flying by so fast it is ridiculous! I must admit I am a bit in shock you are 7 months. I didn't really think past the first 6 months and now you are closer to being 1 than a newborn.

You weigh 13lbs 13oz and are 25 inches long. Yes, you still wear 0-3 month clothing and I bet you will until the end of summer.

This last month has been a big month for you. At 6 months you started trying to crawl. You started out by scooting and at 6.5 months you began full on crawling. You are very good at it now and can go across the entire room to mommy or whatever it is you want. For now you still just crawl to what you can see. Soon I'm sure you will figure out you can crawl places out of sight to explore and find mommy when she is in a different room. Once that happens I'm really in trouble.

A couple weeks ago you also started pulling yourself to standing as well. You are a champ at this now and can pull yourself up onto just about anything. You are still learning how to get down though and I sometimes find you hollering, holding on for dear life because you are scared and can't sit back down.

You learned how to put yourself into a sit position.

You went in a park swing and a kiddy pool for the first time this month.

You started on solids and have so far had (in this order) rice cereal, squash, avacado, peas, green beans, carrots, oat cereal, sweet potatoes, Cheerios, pears, and wax beans. You are a big fan of the beans and cereals and don't like avacado or pears.

You get so excited to see daddy when he comes home from work. It is the cutest thing ever!!! This just started in the past few weeks.

Now that you are mobile you are a much happier and content baby! However you need to learn what sleeping is again!!! You've become too active for your own good and wake up ready to go at all hours!

Mommy is very proud of you.
