Seven month update

To my beautiful seven month old girls -

Your Dad and I look back with amazement at the past seven months and wonder where they've gone so quickly. We spend a lot of time savoring every moment with you as we know they will pass quickly and before we know it you will be a year old.

During the past month you both have become much more independent. You play by yourselves for up to thirty minutes at a time. You love to play peak a boo and giggle at your Mom and Dad as we try to make you laugh when you are upset. Your laughter is infectious, you both have deep cute belly laughs. I remember how we loved your fascination with your hands, well it has moved onto your feet. You grab them whenever you can and N, you love to pull your socks off!

You are both getting up on your hands and knees and rock back and forth - crawling is not far away. You also love to bounce around in your exersaucers and to play with the piano barnyard toy you got for Christmas.

You are still enjoying the mommy milk. Since you cannot have regular formula we've decided it's more important than before to continue pumping for N and nursing L. We are going to make it to a year, our goal was 6 months and we have definitely passed that!!! You are also eating solids 3 times a day. Usually a fruit with oatmeal for breakfast, a veggie for lunch & a veggie with some oatmeal for dinner. We still haven't figure out a favorite food yet but I'm leaning towards squash and sweet potatoes.

L, you began army crawling this month. It is too cute to see you set your eyes on something and go after it. You also got your third tooth this month. You are a growing girl weighing in at around 16.5 pounds. We moved you up to 6-9 month clothes in the past week.

N, you are our champion sleeper. You sleep through the night more consistently than L does and this has been briefly interrupted in the past couple days because you are teething. We hope you get that tooth soon. You also now sit up unassisted for a couple minutes at a time. Somehow you always tip over but it doesn't seem to bother you. You are just shy of 14 pounds and are making sure we make good use of the 3-6 month clothes.

We love you!

Mom & Dad
