Dear Lily Bean,
Today you are 7 months old and changing so fast its hard to keep up. Some of the things that you did this past month were:
7/15 finally giggled at peek a boo. Up until this point you just looked at me like I was crazy.
Belly laughed for the first time on 7/5. You are still very hard to get laughing and as soon as we get out the camera its all over. You would rather look at the camera then anything else so of course you stop enjoying whatever it is I’m killing myself doing to make you laugh.
You enjoyed the swing we bought before you were born. You hated that thing and wouldn’t sit in it even for a minute before. Now you’ll put up with it for a max of 20 minutes but hey I get some dishes put away in that time so I’m cool with it.
You smiled at a few strangers, this is a big thing for us. You smile at Daddy and me all the time, but either just stare at unknown people or cry because they are looking at you.
Biggest thing is you got the all clear from the medical genetics from the children’s hospital. You’re small but fine. We knew that but now your regular doctor can relax and stop worrying us.
You can sit up pretty well if we put you in a sitting position. You can’t get there on your own, but its a start.
You are starting solids. I just don’t feel that you are 100% ready for them so we keep trying about once a week till I think you’re there. You eat something solid for dinner every day now and really enjoy it.
You didn’t start it this month but you’ve perfected it. You just about always have a finger in your mouth, usually its your index finger but sometimes you add your middle one in and every once in a while you replace it with your thumb. Usually you are just biting on it but sometimes you will suck it and it is the most precious thing in the world.
You do this really cute head rub sometimes. I wish I could get a picture of it because I can’t describe it. But it melts my heart when you do it.
You are the most amazing little person in the world and I’m so lucky that you’re mine.
