I'm 7 months old!



My mom is cleaning the bathroom and she's making me have some tummy time. Since I can now roll over both ways I commandeered the laptop to write my first post!

I'm 7 months old this week! Can you believe what a big girl I am? I always keep my mom and dad laughing. I have figured out how to growl in this low hoarse voice and shriek in a very high pitched one! I like to sing when I hear music, when I'm tired and when I think no one is listening, It's pretty easy to get a laugh out of me since I'm an easy going girl. The only time I get grumpy is when I'm really tired. Can you blame me?

I am fascinated with my hands, so I like to look at them and use them to grab EVERYTHING, especially hair. I love to read books. My favorite is about farm animals and I always giggle at the page with the fuzzy duck that says "Quack Quack".

I prefer sitting now to laying down. When I'm on my back I do sit ups trying to get back up. I also like practicing standing while holding on to things. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my fisher price jumperoo. I've figured out how to jump on one foot and swivel around to play with all the toys.

I'm a little bit picky when it comes to eating. I'll take green beans and peas over fruit any day!

I have big pretty eyes that are turning brown. Daddy is so happy about this. And everyone always comments on all my inquisitive facial expressions and my extremely long eyelashes. I'm loving this world that I get to explore and I especially love playing with my best buddy, Daddy!

Until next month....
Madeline

  3. Madeline - not only are you an adorable 7 month old, you are an excellent typist and have quite an extensive vocabulary! Im very impressed with your accomplishments over the past 7 months. I wont tell your mom that you stole her laptop. Though be careful... if you accidently leave some spitup on it, she is definitely going to figure it out. I look forward to more updates! And FYI - it can really hurt when you pull hair (and necklaces, earrings, etc). Let the rest of your baby-posse know that.

  5. She is getting so big. I can't even believe it. She is sure a cutie. I dont grab the camera for everything. The trick is to have a camera phone and I always have that with me. Then I have to pretty much blog it all so I can put it in my blog book. Easy way to journal what is going on in our lives.
