Since I’ve been taking monthly pictures of my daughter and posting them in my office at work, I’ve been getting rave reviews of what a cute idea it is. Well, I can thank all the ideas from Pinterest. For the next four months (OMG, I can’t believe it’s so close already) until Brooklyn turns 1 year old, I will post a blog about all our advancements in development, etc.
The most recent month is 7 months (but she’ll be 8 months this weekend)! By 7 months she recognized her name and turns to you when she hears it. She has been able to sit completely unassisted (though we’re still working on going from laying on the floor to a sitting position). She played on a swing at the park for the first time and absolutely loved it! She also started waving – though intermittently. She also started using her walker and motors around the kitchen and discovered that she can reach the knobs on the cabinets and think it’s a blast banging them. She still has those chubby cheeks and thighs.
For comparison, I have posted all the previous months below so you can see how much she’s changed. I’m so amazed at how much she’s grown and developed in just 7 months! While I’m sad the stage of her cuddling and not moving has come to an end, I’m anxious to see all that she still has to learn and can’t wait until she can talk to us and walk around! She’s such a joy – I can’t imagine life without her. She’s a blessing and I’m enjoying every single minute of it!
