I can’t believe how time has sped up lately. I’d say five months was the real turning point from soft mushy baby to wriggling little person who goes every where and does everything but it has just gotten faster and faster every month. Here she is already seven months and I can barely keep up with her and all the milestones she’s hitting.
There’s the sitting up and hand clasping, the holding her own spoon and drinking from a cup. The banging and the grabbing at everything from my hair to her Daddy’s glasses to the leaves on the plants we pass by on our walks. There’s CONSTANT wiggling in general! I can barely hold her sometimes because she wants to wriggle right out my grasp. She loves her cousins and when my niece Rapunzel jumps up and down, she jumps up and down along with her almost flying right out of my arms. There’s the laughing and the “laaaaah laaaah” “daaaah daaaaaaah” sounds… No “maaaah maaaaah” yet but have I mentioned the CRAWLING!!!
Yes, she is starting to crawl. Thankfully it’s still a somewhat slow Army crawl with lots of belly time but I know it’s only a matter of days before I have to shut the patio door or she’ll be long gone over the edge of the balcony. Bye bye open spaces, hello baby gates. There so much to do and so little time to do it in.
Enjoy!(1.87 megs quicktime)
