Violet is seven months old. I can hardly believe how quickly she is growing up. She is such a happy girl and is so fun to have around. She really loves Greg, myself and the kids, not so much anyone else. She often cries when others even look at her. Although, I have noticed that her stranger danger anxiety isn't really present around children, which is interesting. There is always some child playing around her or with her when I work in the daycare and she seems to enjoy them. I just discovered her third tooth popped through yesterday. She's been putting those few teeth to good use, eating everything which we eat, that she can. She has also begun to prefer the bottle to nursing, which is just bizarre as in the past she has hated the bottle and formula! She seems to be gaining weight well since taking to the bottle. We've started the process of weaning her, which I'm a little sad about, but think it's for the best. This is what is going on with Violet at seven months old.
She has learned: to roll from her stomach to her back (she's had back to stomach for a while), to sit for a very short period of time and to wave
She likes: table food, her bouncer, being held, her family (she's really into Dad especially right now and will reach for him when I'm holding her sometimes), blowing raspberries, saucers, baby toys, rolling around on the floor, sitting up
She dislikes: being alone, losing her toy
Things she does that makes us smile/laugh: her very loud unfeminine laugh - sort of like a cackle, constant wiggling, how she has to sample a very small amount of her food at each meal before taking a real bite, big smiles and funny faces she makes when feeling her teeth with her tongue and lip
