Seven Months Old!

Clearly even Ruby can't believe it! My little Valentine is seven months old today & I am seeing her little personality grow more and more each day....and by personality I mean sassyness! ;) The biggest new trick you've learned in the last month is how to sit up, as you can see in the picture above. You still do the occasional suicide bomb & fall over, but you've mastered this skill rather quickly. You have also finally discovered your feet which you haven't found to be nearly as interesting as your hands, but you do enjoy holding onto them while I attempt a diaper change, making the afore mentioned task quite the challenge. You love it when we hide from you and reappear, it gets quite a belly laugh. You also love to be tossed up in the air now, but you aren't so sure about being hung upside down. You have started rice cereal and LOVE it, you chow down like you've been eating forever. You have definately gained a bit of an attitude in the last month, you don't like it when we leave you in a room by yourself and you let us know by yelling and or whining. Speaking of strange sounds you also enjoy gurgling quite a bit & find it thoroughly entertaining. Your grams claims she has taught you to wave, and by wave I mean you move your entire arm in a machete like motion, but only with a lot of high pitched. encouragement and demonstration each time & even then, it's not a sure bet. Still absolutely no signs of crawling, but you do scoot a bit and you love to stand. So that's you, my little ru, at eight months, in a nut shell! i love you lots my little lemon!
