7 months old!




I know I keep saying this, but I can't believe how quickly time is going by! Emma Claire is 7 months old today and it feels like she was my tiny little newborn LAST WEEK. I'm trying my best to savor every second with her because I know that this baby-ness won't last long. She actually put her head on my shoulder today and my heart just melted---she hasn't done that in ages!

Miss Priss had to go to the doctor today because she was running a fever and has been pulling at her ears, but thankfully she had a clean bill of health and just has a little cold. She is still a peanut, weighing in at 16 lb 3 oz. She has two teeth, is a pro at sitting up, and is getting better at tolerating being on her tummy. I don't predict Emma Claire crawling anytime soon, but that's fine with me! She has lost a lot of her hair but what remains is still brown---definitely nothing like Grayson at this age. By this point Grayson had lost all of his hair and it had started to come back in blonde. I am so curious to see if she'll stay a brunette or if she'll be tow-headed like her big brother....only time will tell! I'm still nursing (although she's getting 1 or 2 bottles of formula every day) and I have to say that I'm very proud of myself for keeping it up for this long---ever since I was in the hospital in September I've had issues with my supply so I feel blessed that I've been able to continue this far. :)

Here are some "birthday" pictures I took of our little angel today!!

She is so adorable! And I see TWO teeth! Very cute! Savannah has not gotten any teeth yet, but that's ok. Hope to catch up soon! Take care!

She is just too wicked cute - I love the dress too -- girl clothes are the best! :)

I love the last picture. I can't believe how fast the babies are growing up. Truman and EC must both hate their tummies. Actually, T isn't rolling yet. He sits just fine, just has no interest in rolling. If you put him on his tummy he just lays there the lazy pig!!

Margaret, the eggy thing is supposed to do that. You did it right.
