7 Months of Joy

I promise you can't look at these and not smile.

Brecken is 7 months today.  She prefers mommy but is ok with other people holding her as long as she can't see me.  She has what the doctor calls a "pearl tooth" in the front.  (A white little speck on her gums that looks like a tooth but is smoother and whiter than a real tooth that goes away in a couple months.)  She has started infant cereal and some baby foods.  She nurses 5 times a day, takes two naps and sleeps from 8 pm to 8 am with one feeding around 4 am.  We just lay her in her bed for naps and bed and she falls asleep quickly.  If we aren't at home it is a little more of a battle b/c she doesn't like to be held to sleep.  She smiles, laughs and flails her limbs to show she's happy.  Her best smiles are reserved for Taryn and Reni.  Yesterday she decided she would learn to crawl and uses a mix of knees, elbows and army crawling.  She is wearing 6 month sized clothes and size 2 diapers but we should probably be moving up to size 3.  She has a sweet disposition and while I would love love love to keep her at this age forever, I'm also so excited to see who she is becoming develop.  We're so blessed to have her in our family.
