You're how old?!

Our girl is 7 MONTHS OLD today! We can hardly believe it. She keeps getting sweeter every day. She's still doing great with real food. I think her new favorite is bananas. She is so funny to watch and she mmmm's everything. I love the faces she makes on the foods she isn't quite sure about. For instance, we gave her mango last week and she LOVED it. I gave her some again tonight and I do believe she actually shuddered after the first bite. I tried a few more times and got a shudder after each bite. We are still sticking to oatmeal, fruits and veggies. We aren't venturing into the meats until at least another month or so.

As you can see from the picture, Mia is all about standing. Poor daddy's nose! When we try to sit her down on the floor, her legs are straight as arrows and she doesn't want to sit, she wants to stand. We think she'd be perfectly happy with skipping the crawling thing altogether and going right to walking. However, she has been practicing her crawling stance. I've been putting her on her tummy more and she's working on it. It's going to be so cute when she can follow me around the house.

The weather has been beautiful for the last few days and Mia and I have been taking advantage of it and getting some walks in. I will be so glad when Spring gets here and we can get out on a regular basis like we were doing before winter. She is so cute in the stroller. She has to hold on to everything and the stroller is not exception. It's so cute to look down at her and she's laid back, relaxed, and has her arm up on the side taking in all the sights.
