7 Quick Months

Little Miss Audrey is 7 months today! I simply can not believe it! She has changed so much in the last two weeks - it is stunning!

For the most part, Audrey has become a happy person!!! I've been waiting for the day that I could say that! A couple of Sundays ago, we had lunch with Michael's family and the topic of her "contentness" kept coming up. They simply couldn't believe what they were seeing. (I couldn't either, really.)

She has left rolling behind in the dust. You can almost hear her say that rolling is for babies. She is almost crawling. She sure has figured out how to pull herself around. Each half day, I see improvements. She's better at night than she was that morning. The next morning, she'll be better than she was the night before. And she gets so excited about going anywhere in the room she wants! She kinda sounds like a panting dog - it's funny. The video below was taken a few days ago, so she has improved on her crawling skills.

Audrey typically goes to bed 7 or 7:30 and won't stir until 5. That's still an hour earlier than what the doctor said she should be able to do, but I'm not going to fight it. She goes right back to sleep after I nurse her. If she were a chubbier baby, I might let the feeding opportunity pass.

She LOVES running around the house with her daddy. She kicks her legs as they do this. I think she believes she's running on her own. I've noticed that when she hears the garage door go up that she gets excited and looks around for Michael to come in. So cute!

Audrey is still doing well on the baby food. Looks like the Apple and Blueberry Mix is boring her. I just keep buying it because it looks sooo good! I think her favorite is Plum-Banana-Brown Rice Mix. It looks like we lucked out on not being allergic to bananas. That's a pretty big allergy on Michael's side of the family. Whew!

Way to go Audrey! Isn't it crazy where they can move to, when they aren't officially mobile yet?

She looks so big in that chair! And all that hair to hold her bow...I won't show Morgan, she'd be jealous:)

Isn't it just amazing how God built all that inside one to know when to crawl, reach, etc. I find it just amazing. I can't imagine how fun it is to be Audrey's mom!

That looks like a completely different kid! Have we really been gone that long?
