Dear Sweet Cecilia,
Yesterday you turned 7 months old and for the first time since I began these posts, I am only a day behind. Your biggest milestone achieved in the last month is that you have pulled yourself up into a standing position a handful of times. I know once you get that mastered, walking won’t be far behind it. There’s no rush so feel free to slow down. You are still army crawling/scooting all of the house. You get up off your belly to crawl but just wiggle a little bit. I think you’ve figured out that for now you can get around pretty fast doing the army crawl thing. Your new favorite place to crawl is under the dinning table and through the chairs. I have to keep up with my vacuuming because we are constantly finding you raking up and eating little treasures of food that your brother has dropped onto the floor.
There haven’t been any teeth sightings in your mouth yet but you appear to be teething pretty hard. You like to chew on anything you can get your hands on and sometimes get fussy at night *we think* because your gums are bothering you. Hopefully a tooth will break through soon so you get can some relief. In the last month you have developed quite the appetite and prefer eating food to drinking bottles. I think a lot of times you out eat your brother. You LOVE to feed yourself “puff” and “yogurt melt” snacks (Mommy likes to sneak a few too, they’re delicious). You love all things having to do with your brother which can get you into trouble when he’s not in the mood for sharing.
Your hair has taken on a unique pattern. It is quite long (going over your eyes) and brown in the front and short and blonde in the back. I like to refer to it as a reverse mullet. You can look that up a mullet is when you’re older.
I love listening to your sweet laugh/cackle and your chattering. As always, you are such as a joy.
