Our sweet girl is 7 months old and she is on the go! She is in constant movement. I cherish our morning snuggles now more than ever because the older she gets, the less snuggling time is in our day. She still wakes up with a sweet, sweet smile and wants to snuggle with momma. Patrick gets a little snuggle time in when she wakes up at 5am for a morning feeding and snuggle with papa before he has to leave for work.
After her 5am feeding she goes back to sleep usually instantly. Some days she will stay up until 6 or even 7 before going back to sleep. Then around 8:30am she is up and ready to roll... Literally. This girl loves to roll around. She can crawl when she wants to. Mostly backwards, but once she starts to go forward she realizes that rolling gets her to where she wants to be faster.
Between 9-9:30 she has breakfast. Usually consisting of some delicious fruit blends. Mango banana is currently rocking her world. After breakfast she stays in her highchair and watches sesame street while momma makes herself a protein drink, feeds the dog and gets ready for the day.
Now that we have had a break in the weather, we have been able to once again enjoy outdoor activities. We love play dates with my girlfriends and their children. The older girls ages 1-3 love baby Delilah. We go to the children's museum, Morton arboretum, zoo and the little red schoolhouse. All fun, educational places where the moms can get some fresh air, exercise and some much needed girl time.
Crib time is very difficult. ALL Delilah wants to do in her crib is STAND and soothe her gums on the iron bars. It doesn't matter how sleepy she is. She thinks that her crib is the worlds best playground and she is so amused with herself and all of her talents in her crib. Since the picture was taken, we have now moved her mattress down to the lowest setting. She can still stand up.
Delilah is an absolute joy to be around and I can not believe how quickly time is going by. She is hitting milestone after milestone which excites us but also makes us realize how quickly she is growing up. Next month is going to be another exciting month. Delilah now has a new baby cousin and we will be taking Delilah on her first airplane ride to California to meet my brothers daughter Easton Amiko!
