SEVEN Months!

Seven months. SEVEN MONTHS....SEVEN MONTHS! I have to keep reminding myself that Caroline turned a whole 7 Months on Friday. And I have to keep reminding myself that I carried her in my belly longer than she has been out in the world... for some reason it makes time seem slower? Maybe because being pregnant seemed soooo long? Anyway, I'll be sad when I can no longer say that.

SO... Seven months! This past month has been a blast. So many Caroline firsts including her first Clemson football game, first Halloween, and her first time crawling. Thats right, we're on the move! Its more of an army crawl, but she sure can cover some ground quickly, especially if its in pursuit of Bella!

You are such a joyful girl. You have a huge two-tooth smiled. You are ticklish and make the sweetest giggle. You are also busy, busy, busy! Always looking for something to "explore", and reach for, and throw on the ground, and put in your mouth. You also love to climb all over our laps, and all over pillows on the bed. You even have started to pull yourself up on the coffee table. {You're welcome to slow down if you want!?!}

Bathtime is still your favorite. You love bath toys and lots of bubbles. You like music and gigglebellies videos. You also love all your toys that make noises, and your babydoll. This past month we have started putting you in highchairs at restaurants and riding in the front of shopping carts. It makes you feel like such a big girl. You also have discovered Bella on a whole new level this past month. You smile and call her "Ba-Ba", and "chase" after her as fast as your little arms and legs can take you. Bella loves to lick you and it makes you giggle. 

Bananas are your favorite food so far. You are also really starting to embrace applesauce and sweet potatoes {Thank goodness!}. Thanks for working with Mama and Daddy on this solid food thing. You are finally starting to get the swallowing-with-a-spoon thing down. 

You hate getting in your car-seat and you strongly dislike getting dressed. If your aren't tired, or hungry, or stuck in your car-seat you are a happy girl. You're an easy-peasy baby, I tell you! You sleep well - about 8 or 9 hours a night, and usually only wake mommy up once to eat around 5 or so. Thank you! 

Your hair is getting longer, and thicker, and more blonde. You're still in size 3 diapers, and we are still loving cloth diapers while we are home. {They look so cute on you, and daddy likes how much money they save us!} You are wearing 6 month clothes and some 9 month clothes. Your legs are so long, and you're quite long waisted, so you have a couple of 12 month pants for the length. You're such a beautiful girl, and we are head over heals for you!
 I was cramming too many things into Friday afternoon, and with daylight savings time, I missed some of the good daylight when we headed outside at 5:15pm, but I do actually love how these pictures turned out. Caroline was loving being outside and playing in the leaves, and the sun was setting so beautifully in the background. 
Carolne, you were singing Mommy a beautiful song, and I loved it. Your noises are precious!
 Pure Joy.
 Discovering the leaves. Thinking about putting them in your mouth...
Not too tasty, my love. 
 Cute pouty face.
Caroline, Thank you for another great month of being your Mama and Daddy. We love you. We are blessed to lead and guide you as you grow. We are thankful for the joy you bring to us daily. Keep up the good growing sweet pea, you are precious.
