Seven months!

Oh my goodness, this girl. Merritt got tubes this month--they've yet to magically transform her into a baby who sleeps all night... but at least I know her ears aren't hurting her anymore which makes me feel like a good mother. She's got four cute teeth that she likes to bite me with. She generally wakes up twice a night to eat (although technically I wake her up for the first one.) She's kind of a pain to feed... she prefers to nurse in dark, quiet rooms, which are kind of in short supply. I try to feed her when she's sleepy so she'll have a full feeding, otherwise she eats for a few minutes and decides she'd rather play.

She's still a wobbly sitter, but she's getting better. She's VERY good at clapping her hands--a skill I'm sure she learned so she could cheer for me while I ran the Boston Marathon.

She's fairly generous with smiles and giggles--her brothers crack her up!

Her sweet blonde hair is starting to come in a little more. We're still a long way from being able to put a clip in it--but its soft and feathery and maybe has a bit of a curl? Can you imagine how terrible it would be if I had three curly haired boys and then my girl had stick straight hair? Don't you just want to kiss her head?

I've sat her in the high chair twice to feed her and it's gone as you would expect. Bananas and sweet potatoes--she wasn't very interested in either. I'm planning on doing baby led weaning with her--so she's in charge of feeding herself. Nobody has time to spoon feed a baby. Even when they are this sweet.

Her thumb continues to be her favorite thing. I love this little pose--when she first goes for her thumb she uses her other hand to anchor it in there for a bit. It's so precious. We love this girl!
