7 months

Scarlett, You are 7 months today! My oh my. Your daddy and I cannot get enough of you! When we put you to bed at night, we miss you! Your screams and giggles fill our home and hearts with so much joy. You are growing and changing ALL the time. Here is what has been going on with you lately...

- You weigh about 22 lbs (we think).
- You are wearing all 12 month clothing and some 18 month.
- You wear size 3 diapers.

- You are eating solids 2 times a day now. You have tried and love: peas, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, pears, zucchini, rice & oatmeal cereal. You tried apples, but they were a little too sweet for your liking. You are a very good little eater, but we are not surprised by that!
- You are still nursing very well.
- You have started, just this week, to take 2 naps a day instead of 3. You are exhausted by the end of the day.
- You have started going to bed at 7:00 pm instead of 7:30 or 8:00.

(Scarlett's pillow was made by my sweet, darling friend Jill.
You can see more of her amazing work HERE.)

- You are sleeping much better than you were a month ago, but you still get up at least once at night (the night before last you slept 11 hours straight and we were shocked!)
- You have learned to clap your hands and do it all the time. It is SO cute.
- You love to "make music" with your toys by smacking them together like cymbals, it cracks us up.
- You play SO well by yourself. If I need to clean up your room or throw in a load of laundry, I just put you in your crib with a few toys and you go to town!


- You are starting to get some "stranger anxiety." You really only like to be with your mommy or daddy in public.
- You are getting your 1st tooth! AH! Your right, lower, central incisor (according to daddy!) has popped through. It is a sharp little sucker. We call it your "shark tooth."
- You are really wanting to get places. You are often very restless when we are playing because you want to get to something that is out of your reach. You are showing some signs that crawling could be in your near future.
- You are still totally mezmerized by Callie. You squeal when you see her every morning. If only she shared the same fondness.

We love you SO much and thank the Lord for the precious, precious gift He gave us -- YOU!
