Seven Months

Dear Lila,

You're at this stage of discovery where you love grabbing everything (Mommy's glasses, Daddy's beer, and dog-dog's fur to name a few). Your favorite toy, albeit expensive, is Daddy's BlackBerry. Any chance you can get, you grab it and try to eat it. One of your favorite games is playing peek-a-booty (see video below). You think it's way funnier if we scare you and say "RRAAAGGHHH" instead of peek-a-boo. It's kind of twisted, but I like it :)' Another favorite past-time is your Jumperoo. You go B-A-N-A-N-A-S when you are in it. You squeal, giggle, bounce, rock, and bat at things. It's hilarious!

You recently had your first cold. Boo! You were a little bit cranky and protested any sort of nasal drip control that we tried to enforce. It took a week to get over and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

You still don't have any teeth. You drool non-stop and chew on everything. I am sure that they will peek through soon. What's interesting is you like gnawing on everything with the back of your mouth. Is it possible that you could get your molars first? I doubt it. But it would be funny if you had all of your molars first and then your front teeth.

Your favorite foods so far are sweet peas and squash. Yummy scrumbos! You absolutely detested bananas and apples. Your reaction was priceless!

Your reaction when you see Daddy come home steals my heart. You kick you feet, wave your arms and stick out your tongue with excitement! This was a moment that we had once dreamt of and wept for--to be living it now feels so surreal. Happy Seven Month Birthday!
We love you Lila Bunny!

Love, Mommy and Daddy

What an adorable giggler you've got! :)
And I hear you on the jumperoo - my guys LOVE that thing - one of them could probably be in it for hours if we let him!
