Seven Months!

I don't know where the time has gone, blah blah.

We have been doing pretty well the last week.

First off, sleep. After a particularly bad night I ordered a bed rail to facilitate safe bed sharing. J installed it Thursday and the sleeping began. It isn't the same quality of sleep, but I didn't expect it would be and that's ok. Sleep is sleep and I'll take it, thank you very much. Not getting up to nurse, means being less awake and Grace and I have both been in a great mood the last few days. We had the best family weekend we have had in ages.

                                          Don't mind me, I'm just a cute little bed bug.

Solids are a slow start. Despite being curious about everything, my food included, when it came to actually eating, not so much. She will eat about a tablespoon of veggies or fruit mixed with cereal, then she's done and wants to nurse. I'm fine with this. I don't intend to wean her until she is ready, or the biting does me in. Considering she has seven teeth already,  I don't see the biting getting worse and it is manageable now. Another thing, in a long list, that surprises me about myself as a mother is my dedication to nursing.

                                                  This doesn't taste like pizza!

Movement and play have dramatically improved the last week. Grace does not like to play alone, which gets a little old. She has been able to roll sporadically for a while, but her skills have gotten much better lately. Now she can roll and scoot to toys. Yay! Now I can knit and goof off on the interweb clean and put laundry away! I still can't leave the room without the fussing, but we're getting there, right?

Life is getting more fun every day!

Oh that little girl is just SO beautiful! i can't get over it - I mean all babies are cute, but she's just gorgeous! It's cool to hear that she's getting mobile!! (and I suppose especially cool for you that she's kinda mobile but not TOO mobile!)
