Sybil Jane :: Seven Months

Seven months, little lady!

I'm writing this post a little over a week late and so much has changed even in this past week. For instance all of a sudden you're in love with food! Yay!

Maybe I've written about my great dislike of the solid food transition? (Probably in your sisters posts too...). It's one of my least favorite things...for a few reasons, but the big two:

-we're finally in some type of rhythm and then BAM--added new thing to do.
-the mess. holy moly.

With you and E I was slow to get moving on the solid foods. "They'll eat when they're ready..." was my motto. E was so very ready early on, but every time I let you try something you were fine with it, but just didn't seem too interested. Then this week it's like all you want to do is try new foods and it's so exciting to you!

The fact that you're loving eating makes it a little bit easier of a transition :) No one in our home is a picky-eater and if you continue what you're doing, it doesn't seem like you'll be picky either!

Your favorites include avocados (Hazel has hated avocados since she was a baby! You and E love 'em!), sweet potatoes, peas, and carrots. Oh and eggs. Okay, maybe you're loving a lot of foods.

We moved all three of you girls into one room. Your dad and I have been incredibly surprised at how smooth the transition has been...lets just say it was not this smooth when we moved Hazel and E in one room. Ha! You've had a few weird nights this past month, but you're back to sleeping through the night. Thanks ;)

Your sisters are still so smitten with you. Loving on you all day long. Eleanor turns two (!) this month and I can tell she's developing more--mostly because of the way she interacts with you.

"G'morning Sybie!" is what she says (about 100 times) when you wake up. She's only woke you up once since all of you starting sharing a room. You're just so much fun to play with!

Really though, you're a sweet, sweet little babe. You're sitting up all on your own, you army crawl like it's your job (please just calm down with that), you're in the dog food, grabbing your sisters toys, and making us all take a deep breath and smile. You're doing a great job, kiddo.

Oh and we just had to lower your crib because you're pulling up. As your dad was lowering the crib and I was rocking you, Hazel came over to you and I said to her, "We have to lower Sybie's crib because she's getting so big. She's not going to be a little baby for much longer." Sweet Hazel said, "Mama she'll always be baby Sybil." My heart may have just melted all over the floor when she said that. We love you so much, little lady!

Some of my favorite things from this month:

-you pulling yourself up into a sitting position like a boss and surprising the heck out of me.
-watching you eat sweet potatoes
-rocking you and laughing because you are SO BIG!
-your first Thanksgiving! We drove down to VA to be with my side of the family :)
-just you in general--you make all our days brighter, sweet girl. i'm so grateful for you, sybil jane!

We love you SO much!
