7 Months Old

Dear Rayna,

I cannot believe you are 7 months old!! You are such a sweet, good-natured baby. You are very observant and love to be outside.

You cut your first tooth this month! Your little smile with your one tooth is just adorable. You have one more that's on it's way! You also had your first (and hopefully last!) ear infection this month. Considering you were cutting teeth and had a double ear infection, you were a real trooper! You were still mostly a pleasant, happy baby.

You went to your first wedding this month! You slept through most of it, but still loved seeing all of your family and getting a lot of attention. While you enjoyed your time out of town, you did NOT enjoy the long car ride. Once we finally convienced you to take the paci, you did a lot better.

You've started to get a little anxious around strangers lately. You know the difference between someone you know and someone you don't know. You've been a Mommy's girl, which Mommy LOVES.

You are a very, very busy baby. You like to be held, but you like to be carried around so that you can see the world. You aren't content to sit on someone's lap. You like to get down and move. You are always moving! You can now "army" crawl, get from a crawling to a sitting position, sit independently, and pull yourself up onto your knees. You are very motivated to get where you want to go.

Your six month stats:
17.8 lbs (75th percentile)
28 inches (95th percentile)

We love you so much, sweet Ray-Ray!
