Lyla {7 months old}

My little girl is 7 months old.
We are our Vermont trip this week, as we do every year and I can't help but remember our trip last year, being pregnant with this now 7-month-old.  What a way we've come.  I am so excited to take Lyla on this adventure...and a little apprehensive about the 9 hour car ride.

Lyla can crawl.  She can sit up on her own.  She can blow raspberries.  She can charm the socks off anyone who looks her way. She is quite the handful with this new crawling thing but her newfound independence has also made her a much happier baby.  She is great at keeping herself busy....even though sometimes this means she is chewing on the remote or grabbing the dog's toys.

We're still nursing and now starting to add more solid foods.  I love watching her reaction to each new food she tries.  Those little scrunched face expressions and puckered lips are too funny.  

She's also been testing out a sippy cup.  She pretty much chews on it and ends up with water all down her shirt.  But just like everything else....I'm sure she'll get the hang of it before we know it!  I LOVE this little peanut.

What a beauty inside and out! My little girl just turned 5 months. Sounds like crawling may be just around the corner. :) Happy 7 month birthday sweet Lyla!
