Kate is 7 months old

Kate, you are such a wonderful baby and I love who you are becoming.  You're always smiling and bring us so much joy with your big hugs and cuddles.  Everywhere we go, people talk about how happy you are.  You're also very observant- you're just taking it all in.

At 7 months you
-Wear 6-12 month clothes and size 2 diapers (you could maybe wear 3 but I have about 300 free 2's left so...)
-Weigh 15 pounds
-CRAWL everywhere.  You do not sit still.  You've been crawling for exactly one month and you haven't stopped except to eat and sleep.  You're a mover like the rest of your family-ha!
-Sit on your own and go from sitting to crawling and back again-seems so simple but it is so cool to me

drool anyone? ha!
-Pull up to your knees and a few times to your toes.
-Give the biggest smile when I come in to get you in the morning.  You have very deep eyes and they just light up.
-Sit in your highchair to eat
-SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT! You sleep from 7 to 7 and take a nap at 9 and 1

-Nurse 2 times a day and take formula bottles for about 4 other times
-Eat 3 baby food meals a day.
-Eat sweet potatoes (your favorite), peas, squash, rice cereal, prunes, apples, and pears.  You hate bananas (so did Harper).  We'll try some new foods next week.  You also love to eat MumMum rice teething biscuits.

-Sleep on your belly.
-Put everything in your mouth
-Are finally doing better on car rides.  You've actually "found" me in the baby view mirror that I use to see you.  My reflection bounces back to you and you smile (surprise) at me.
-Babble all of the time.  I'm starting to point out words to you like "cat," "dog," "bottle," "eat," "sister," "mommy," and "daddy."
-LOVE to read books.  Your arms and legs get to flapping around with excitement whenever I get one out!  Ha!  Your favorite is In My Nest.  You love books so much that when I put them away, you crawl over to the book basket and pull them out.

-Love to play with Georgia
-Will sit in your excersaucer or bouncer for a little while but would rather move around on the floor.

 3 months
 7 months
We love you Kate!  You've finally really connected with your father and I see you connecting with your sister too.  It makes me so happy to see you happy-and to see your world filled with love.
