7 Month Update
My sweet baby girl is 7 months old - ack, make time stop!!!! She growing up so fast and she's so tall. A little over 28" -a few more inches and she will be half of my height. She even outgrew her carseat already. Remember that tiny baby in preemie clothes that I brought home 7 short months ago? Crazy!!! It has been a busy few weeks and Charlotte has accomplished so many new things. First up, she's started sitting in a high chair and eating her first foods. So far she's had avocado, butternut squash, applesauce and peas. I'm having so much fun making her baby food from scratch and she has loved all of it so far. We've also been learning to drink water out of a sippy cup. She enjoys riding in her stroller. She either sits forward grinning at everyone we pass or kicks her feet up on the tray and relaxes. It's quite cute either way. We still love going outside daily and have recently started blowing bubbles off the back porch. She loves watching them float in the air as long as they don't come anywhere near her, lol. Her personality is starting to come out. She loves to giggle and jabber constantly. She definitely recognizes me and Ross and will reach out for us. She has also started kissing. Either making kissing sounds if you do it to her or grabbing our face and leaving a huge slobbery kiss somewhere in the vicinity of our mouths. She recently started wrinkling her nose up when she smiles and it just about the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Thanks for all of the well wishes for Ross this past month. His surgery went well, but it has been a longer recovery than we expected. It has been a month now and his incision is just now closing up. His eardrum was sucessfully repaired and he is slowly getting a tiny bit of hearing back. Charlotte and I had a bit of a rough few weeks as well. I came down with a respiratory infection and she got her first cold. Let's just say we are hoping for a much better, healthier month!
