Olivia, you're 7 months old!! I know I say this all the time, but it's crazy... one day, you'll understand. This by far has been the biggest month for growing. You're able to sit up perfectly by yourself now, and love sitting in shopping carts :) It's so much easier for you to see everything that's going on!
You're crawling like CRAZY!! I got home from work one night and uncle Skyler was so excited! It took a lot of coaxing, but you finally crawled to me, and I was so happy, I cried. The world is so interesting to you now. You love to explore and get into EVERYTHING, but I don't mind it as much as I imagined I would, it's just a habit now to put the DVD's back on the entertainment center every night.
Your toys are FINALLY getting used...
It's getting hard to get pictures of you now, because you always want to take my phone! You saw me taking this picture, and crawled towards me faster than I've ever seen a baby crawl.
You can pull yourself up now too, but you can't get back down and you'll cry. Anyone who sees you right now, will think I beat you! I can't even count how many times you've pulled yourself up and then lost balance on your way down. It's so hard too, because I want to just help you down, but then you'll never learn how to do it yourself.
Weekend mornings are my favorite; we wake up early and cuddle on the couch. You're finally showing me that you know who I am, and that you miss me by getting sad when I leave, and excited when I come home. You give loves, and you're starting to give kisses. I have been waiting SO long for this, and am loving every minute of it!
I love you more and more every day!
