Where has the time gone? In just a blink of an eye I have a "grown up" baby. This week we have discovered that she has a tooth coming in! Bye bye babyhood...
At the same time, she is also getting ready to crawl! We are not just leaving babyhood, we are sprinting out of it. She now regularly gets up on her hands and knees. She is able to push herself backwards (which she finds entirely frustrating), but there is no forward motion yet. She is getting very adept at rolling from place to place though.
She still loves her squash and after a short period a couple of weeks ago of refusing to eat from a spoon, she is an eating machine.
She is still favoring her left hand, but we will wait to see the final outcome on that. She is also sucking her first two fingers on her left hand, upside down, which is funny to see. Unfortunately, you will have to wait to see it because apparently I don't have a picture of that (She is too much of a camera ham to be seen with fingers in her mouth when the camera comes out). The neat thing about this is Kevin's Grandma is one of the few lefties in the family and she sucked her fingers the same way when she was small! Funny the things that pass through the generations!
And on a side note, we celebrated Christmas again last week. The black and white dress Avery is wearing at the beginning of this post was one gift of many that she received. In fact, we all received quite the cache. Thank you family for the fantastic gifts and thank you Brad and Sandra for transporting them up here from Texas.
Look for another post soon, as Avery's 7 month birthday is on Friday!
