It's here!

I'm enjoying my baby being a baby. She's not as antsy as Abrianna to get things done. So she been doing everything about a month later- which is okay.
Abrianna popped teeth through at 5 months. So at about 6 months, I started giving Abigayle some solids. Resulting in many suppositories and several nights of baby in tears from gas. My midwife's advice, "NO MORE SOLIDS till she has teeth!"She also said that babies digestive enzymes don't appear for solids until teeth break through. Interesting, huh?
Guess what? That worked.
Today I felt something sharp as she chewed my finger. What?? A tooth?? There it was.
This is the first baby I didn't KNOW was teething. Sure she was drooling. But no crying and gnawing.
I'm so blessed to have an easy teether. Now we have to wait till she has two "toofers" so she can try solids all over again.

Happy 7 month birthday precious

It's been an amazing month of changes. She is sitting like a champ, leaning over amazingly far to pick up objects.
She loves clapping.
She's unstoppable. Today I found her in the bathroom playing with the potty chair seat. ICKY! I believe that soon she'll move from commando crawling to her hands and knees.
She's attempting waving too.
She greets all with a smile, an amazingly happy little girl. Such an easy baby.
I hear many comment on what a contented happy lil thing she is. Thank YOU God for our littlest blessing.

On Mobility...

Mobility. A blessing or curse? Or is it both?
Abigayle is getting quite proficient at commando crawling. Consequently, she tries to chase me.
I heard her crying but didn't see her right away. I guess she figured that the closest distance between two points is a straight line, right? That is until you try to go under a chair and get stuck.
She stopped wailing for the camera. Twas
a little difficult to extricate her without bumping her head, but we managed.
