Month Seven With Little m

I dropped the ball the last few months and forgot to take the usual monthly pictures of Little m. Boourns. The good thing is that I have no shortage of iPhone pictures, as I take one almost every day to send to M at work and also her grandparents.
Little m, in your seventh month you started drinking playing with a sippy cup. You love eating mostly any fruit or vegetable in pureed form but your favourites include bananas, pears, and sweet potatoes. You also like trying whole foods such as peas. You do have trouble picking up such tiny pieces, but your pincer grasp is getting better the more you practice. You are enjoying swimming class more and more every week and are getting used to being fully submerged. You tried swinging on swings for the first time this month and were a huge fan. Both sets of grandparents visited you this month which was tons of fun, as usual! Your daddy and I love trying to make you laugh and have such fun when you break into a fit of giggles.
You already have such a funny personality and so many people tell me that you're the smiliest baby they've ever seen. Besides smiling all the time, you also like sticking your tongue out! You weigh around thirteen and a half pounds. You were never the most cuddly infant, but that is slowly changing. You'll now lay your head on our shoulders, like a sweet little munchkin should.
Month seven was probably the most amazing month for naps that we will ever experience. I'm talking two two-hour naps every day like clockwork. Oh, you make mommy so happy with these naps.
My favourite time of the day is when I nurse you to sleep at bedtime. Every night I look down at you and I still can't believe you're perfect and you're mine. At this time of the day you are so peaceful and content and often I want to stay sitting in our rocking chair extra-long, just holding you, because I know these days won't last forever. I'm trying to cherish each and every one of them.


  1. That's for sure you have to cherish each and every moment. The time goes by soooooooooo fast!! I remember rocking and nursing you to sleep and now here you are with your little babe. Little M is the smiliest babe around. It makes me smile just thinking about her smile!!

  2. I love the hair bows :)

    And we love our visits with little m - as few and far between as they are! Her smiles make our day - love the daily pics and videos!!
