Miss L is 7 Months!

7 months ago this morning, a little princess entered our world. As we were expecting her arrival, it was impossible to imagine just how vibrant and pretty her blue eyes would be, how adorably cute she is {most of the time}, how fun of a personality she would grow or how fabulous our life is with her in it.

But it all has far exceeded our expectations.

Below is a current status update:
I don't have her current stats. I can tell you that as of 6 months, she weighed 14 pounds 7 ounces and was 25 3/4 " long.
Miss L is really starting to reach for things; especially our cat Mr. Cole.
She is eating solids like a champ, and breastfeeding well.
She began crawling 3 or so weeks ago.
Within 2 days of crawling, she began standing up against everything while holding on to things. Although from the beginning, she has always wanted to stand up on our this comes as no surprise to us. I imagine with her tiny frame, she'll probably be walking in no time.
She craws over the diaper caddy about...24 times per day!
Problem is: we can't get ourselves back to the floor from this position...yet.

She is beginning to play independently, often waking up and relaxing in her crib for about 15 minutes prior to actually giving me vocal cues that she is ready to be out of her crib.

This is how I found her today, sitting up in her crib corner playing with her silky.

Of course, we also are standing in our crib and learning to make noise by banging on the crib rails. Just lovely!

Today, we had a {mini} photo shoot with her lovely and talented Aunt L, who was in town visiting during her Spring Break; and of course brought her nice professional camera. Below is a snapshot of our fun today and earlier in the week!

We are inching closer to that 1-year mark, so this momma is going to hit up Pinterest for some more birthday party inspiration!

Happy 7th Month {Birth Day} Miss L! Mommy & Daddy love you sooo much.
