On Christmas day, Eden turned 7 months old! The pictures above were taken on Christmas morning. I'm pretending that in the first one she is thinking: "KITTY! Thank you, Mommy!" but really, she's just a great smiler. She didn't care too much about the kitty and had way more fun with the wrapping paper and bows than most of the presents our family members got her! Someday she will love it :)
The past month has been the best. I just love the age she is at now. Right around her 6 month birthday, she started sitting up on her own and showing a real interest in her toys (and non-toys like empty cups or plastic bottles). Don't get me wrong, I've always loved my kid to death.. but at 6 month she just got even more fun. She's more patient and will play by herself for a little while, better in the car and usually an angel during errands. She's smiley and happy and even ticklish. Her giggle is the best thing ever!
She still hasn't shown much interest in rolling, but will roll onto her side to reach for something. She still takes naps every 2 hours - usually only for 30 minutes each except her first nap of the day which is usually over an hour. She's still a night owl.. eventually we're going to have to work on that, but for now it works for us since I'm only working two days per week (and don't go in til 10).
Still just two teeth and no sign of any others yet (which is good!). Around the 6 month mark we started solids (purees) and she's done well for the most part. She loves bananas and hummus and will pretty much take at least a few bites of anything we give her. She's just under 23 lbs.
Hope you had a great weekend!
