7 months

I almost forgot it was Claire's 7 month birthday earlier this week. It seems that this month has gone by faster than any other. She's so active and I really love this age.

She's almost at a crawl. She can scoot wherever she wants to go. She can sit and pull up, actually she pulled to standing at 7 months 1 day. I'd say she's pretty mobile, but I'm still quicker!

She is definitely preferring her mommy and has started crying when others try to take her from me. Of course her Grammy & Aunt Lorie are the exception to that rule. I secretly love that she does that. Makes me feel like an official mommy.

She eats just about anything, but peas are still a "no" in her book.

She loves reading and turning pages.

When she's crying, I sing almost anything and it makes her happy. Usually "The Green Grass" song wins out because I know all the words. Her daddy on the other hand usually goes with U2.

She got her ears pierced last week at the doctor's office. She was cute before and is still cute after.

She went swimming for the first time and LOVED it. That word is capitalized for a reason. She kicked and splashed and cackled. Then she came home and slept for 3.5 hours.

She is learning to wave "bye" and her personality has totally taken over my heart.

We certainly got our money's worth with her.


And, just a small peek at the July main kit MIND THE GAP and the PETROL add-on.
This is my favorite layout I've made in a while. Can't wait to share the full version on the 28th!

The Green Grass song! (green grass grows all around, all around...??) I haven't thought about that song in years! I can't believe she is 7 months old already. Are you bringing her to CHA this summer?

em, i toyed with the idea of bringing her, but in the end we decided she'll stay with my mom that week. I am going to miss her soooooooooooo much and will be sad every day I'm sure. But, it was just too much to ask her to come since I'd get an hour tops with her each day.

why do these decisions have to be so hard? ack!

My daughter is definitely a Mama's girl and yes, secretly, I like it, too! Loving your sneak- I can see that I am going to love this kit, too!
