Rory: 7 Months

Another month has come and gone in Rory Lou's life.  And her 7th month has certainly been one for the books.  I felt like every other day this past month she was doing something exciting and milestone-ish.  There were moments this month where I was seriously like, are you only going to be 7 months old because you are doing all these crazy things that I'm so not ready for you to do!

She started being able to sit up on her own at the beginning of the month and within a few days, had decided that sitting still was not gonna work for her anymore and went straight into crawling.  Unlike Ryan, she didn't army crawl first.  She just went straight for the hands and knees crawling and has become pretty good at it.  She also gets herself from laying down to sitting with ease.  Suddenly she is a very mobile human and on top of that, she thinks she's going to try pulling herself to stand as well.  She hasn't completely done it but she gets up to her knees!

She also popped teeth #1 and #2 at the end of the month.  I could tell they were on the cusp of coming through for awhile now and she really handled it all very well.  No real extreme fussiness and no real effect on her sleep which is always nice for me!  Speaking of sleep, she rarely wakes anymore at night and I can pretty much count on her to sleep about 12 hours straight at night with two naps a day about 1.5-2 hours each.  After having a child that was not a good napper, this whole napping thing is really amazing!

She takes baths in the big girl bathtub, sits in a highchair, rides in the stroller without the carseat, and now sits in the shopping cart.  She really is becoming one of the kids.  She still nurses/drinks a bottle 5-6 times a day and is now eating solids two times daily.  She likes puffs and most of the "first foods" though she's not a huge fan of the green veggies.  She does like avocado though.

She pretty much wants to be where Ryan and Mommy are at all times.  She's not a big talker but she is a people watcher.  Ryan is her biggest source of entertainment and the bond between them is probably one of the greatest joys for me as a Mom.  They already fight over toys and laugh with and at each other.  I believe that one of the reasons Rory is so mobile already is that she wants to keep up with her big sis.

Roars is a Mama's girl and I love it.  There are many times where she only has eyes for me.  I know that will change as she gets older, but for now I'm soaking it in.  She also loves her pink bunny lovey and I even purchased another one in case we should lose the original.  She gets super excited about bath time and has the biggest smile on her face when Ryan and I come in to get her in the morning from her crib.
She is, without a doubt, the sweetest most even-tempered little girl.  We are so lucky to have her in this family.  Happy 7 months to our little Roars!
