7 months (and six days)

Nico has lot's of new tricks for me to tell you about. She has two teeth, says baba, blah, and dada, blows raspberries and she can now crawl. All these new things just happened about a week and a half ago pretty much all at the same time. Nico is now trying her hand at pulling herself up onto things, and I swear she is going to be walking before we know it. She is indifferent as far as solid food is concerned, unless we are feeding her something sweet.

Nico very consistently takes two two hour naps a day, the first one two hours after she wakes up and the second two hours after her first nap. She smiles lots and loves to see Mike when he gets home from work. She still likes being out and riding around in the bjorn meeting new people and seeing new things. She likes to be read to, or at least she tolerates it if we give her her own book to chew on. She is still very petite, weighing just over 15 pounds, but even though she is little she still has deliciously chubby legs, arms and cheeks. We are still completely in love with Nico, and are constantly delighted by her sweet little personality and curiosity.


You can see her teeth and the neck rash that the pediatrician said will most likely stay till she, "grows a neck".

This one was really blown out, but she just looked so cute I had to try and salvage it.


Sad story, about 20 seconds after taking these pictures Nico took a nose dive off the couch. Then we both had a good cry.

Isn't it amazing how quickly they pick things up? Jake is a maniac with crawling...he is everywhere! She is a doll Bille! :-)

Don't worry Nico, you will grow that neck and if you are lucky, you will grow 2 or 3 like Auntie D!

What a cutie! Glad to see that her seven month shots are rash free! It was so good to see you. It was wonderful to see you enjoying being a mom and loving little Nico. And devouring a 4 scoop ice cream cone was enjoyable as well. Wish we could have spent more time together. Love you!
ps. I have to tell you that when I saw you putting Nico on the couch to take her monthly progress pictures, I thought, 'I wonder how long it will take till she takes a nose dive?' I'm amazed she made it till seven months!

So so precious! It's crazy how it's so exciting to watch them grow and then so sad that they aren't so little anymore! Great pictures of your little beauty!
