Emma - 7 Months Old

This has been a big month for our little Em. She learned to crawl and sit up, she’s ravenously attacking solid foods, she’s cutting two new teeth, and she’s discovered a love of stealing Ben’s most prized possessions. Life is good for this little gal.

Through it all, she’s remained her happy, content self. When in new situations, she sits back and observes, rather than participates, but once in her comfort zoom she is determined and engaged. Ben can get her laughing like no one else. She is deliciously ticklish. She is also the most easy-going baby I’ve ever met. Until she’s hungry and then she needs nourishment now.

This was also the month that she stopped sleeping through the night, which has been a bit of a shock to her sleep-loving mama (me!). We’re hoping that the introduction of solid foods will fill her up enough so she’ll once again adopt her solid snoozing habits. She’s still getting the hang of eating: lots of attempts to feed herself but not much actual swallowing. It’s a process and we’re trying to be patient.

We love this little gal to bits and are so glad she’s joined the family. Life is crazy and hectic with two, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Love you, Emma girl.
