Selah B, 7 months
Seven months old. Unbelievable.
Infants are so easy, and then they have to go and cross the 6 month mark and get all complicated! 🙂 Once they hit 6 months they start eating, they start crawling, they start becoming ANOTHER CHILD, rather than just a baby. One more mouth to feed during mealtimes, one more kid to chase after, one more little person to train… THIS is where having two kids starts to get REAL.
Oh, Selah B…how do I love thee?? Well, let me count the ways…
This is our lives…EVERY.DAY.
After begging and pleading with me, I finally allowed her to start some solids…
For a couple weeks, she would go into “push-up” position while on her tummy. Just toes and hands touching the ground. And then she learned how to get herself into the “moving” position…
Her very first “movement” was a crawl, but she hasn’t really “crawled” in the typical sense of the word since. But boy, does she MOVE! She mostly pulls herself with her arms to get around. And wowsers! She is ALL OVER THE PLACE.
With moving, comes exploring! She got to experience grass for the first time at the McCabe’s house!
This month, she has started having conversations with us! I love it!! Her favorite word is “Bap” but she also likes, Mamama, Bababa, and the raspberry sound. One night at dinner, she and Elliott had an entire conversation like this for a good 10 minutes. IT.WAS.ADORABLE. We only caught a few seconds of it on camera, but at least you get a glimpse of the cuteness factor!!!
9. Total and utter cuteness…
Happy 7 months, my darling, precious, standing, dancing, moving, eating, laughing, babbling bundle of joy!!!
