7 months old

7 months old tomorrow! I know, I can't believe it either, Birdie. This is a messy mix of carrots and vitamins. She loves both!

I'm finally convinced

If you're wondering why the background is so dark in this picture...that's because I took it at 4:45 am! Yes, a mere 15 minutes after Birdie woke up this morning. So, all of the books talk about the correlation between good napping and good night sleeping. Since she wakes up, oh, I don't know, 100 times a night, I was determined to get her sleeping better during the day to try and help both of us at night. I worked very hard and did everything I could to get her to sleep more during the day about 4 days ago. The next morning, she woke up for the 87th time (these are all estimates, of course; I usually lose count after the 50th time) at 4:30. After 45 minutes of no success, I thought maybe she was finally cutting a tooth and went to get something to give her. As soon as I turned on the lights, she smiled and was happy and ready to play. I thought it was a fluke, so I tried again yesterday, and she slept about 2 and half hours for naps yesterday, and boom--4:30 am wakeup. So, I'm finally convinced that she just doesn't need that much sleep. Alright, B, 90 minutes it is. I took this the other day when we were on our way out to run errands.
On our way to swim class this morning. My goodness, she is adorable. I could just eat her up. Finally, I was called "Andre-er" for the second time the other day. Time to go. Speaking of, I don't plan on posting for the next two weeks, because I'm busy packing. Although, she will be 7 months old this week, so maybe I'll sneak one in.

happy day

It's just not possible to capture the sweetness and joy of this girl on here. I was sick this week with food poisoning, and she must have known I needed a laugh, because she's been laughing non-stop the past two days. She loves it when I pretend to have hiccups. It causes her to laugh so hard that she usually gets real hiccups.
This morning I was doing a little packing (yeah!) and had her next to me in her bouncer. I would pretend to be engrossed in what I was doing and then look up at her with a goofy face about every 10 seconds. We just laughed ourselves silly. Man. What a great life.

hats off

Birdie's new trick is that she knows how to take a hat on and off. I thought it was a cute game I taught her while we were killing time the other day in a waiting room. It is very cute until she pulls off every hat I now try to put on her when we have to go out in the freezing cold!

almost there

This little one is seconds away from sitting up on her own.

Daddy's eyes

David's and Birdie's eyes are almost exactly the same color. These two love each other so much.
