Seven Months


First of all, watch out world - baby girl's got a tooth!  If I were a more ambitious mom I'd stick my finger in her mouth and try to get a picture of it but since I'm generally against sticking my finger in other people's mouths you'll just have to take my word for it.


Baby girl's also got an appetite!  We started giving her rice cereal shortly after she turned 6 months and she took right to it.  Unfortunately that seems to be about the only food that she likes right about now.  You would have thought that we were trying to poison her by the look on her face when we gave her bananas and plums.


But best of all, baby girl's got a big sister who is incredibly sweet to her.  I have to say that I didn't have the highest of hopes when it came to O caring for her little sister simply because I knew that the presence of a baby around the house was going to rock her world.  But I have to say that I've never been more happy to be wrong about something.  O looks out for C and makes sure that she's not getting into toys that she's not supposed to.  She sings her songs and plays with her and brings her toys and books to look at.  And best of all, she wakes her up in the morning in the sweetest, most gentle way.


It may be getting cold around here lately, but I know that there will be at least one thing warming my heart.

  1. Sibling sweetness is the best! I wondered how my older daughter would react to her baby brother and if I was RUINING HER LIFE with a sibling (I can be a little over dramatic sometimes), but watching their relationship blossom is one of my favorite things about being a mom. Both of your girls are just adorable!

  5. Oh that pic where C is looking at O... divine! Yes I think little siblings can bring out the best in bigger ones. Pity someone has to be forever 'the youngest' eventually, really!

  9. AAAAAAAWWWWW. Cuteness overload for sure! Sisters!! I am loving watching Joe and Maggie develop their little sibling bond - sometimes they'll be "playing" (aka Joe will be doing stuff to Maggie) and they'll both look back at me with the unmistakable conspiratorial grin of siblings! Double trouble! You have gorgeous kiddos. :-)
