June is 7 months old!
(and again, I am way late getting this up)
This month was busy, busy, busy! We were traveling for most of it. In fact, I just counted it up and we were only home for 8 days out of the month.
But June did great! She is so good at adjusting to new surroundings and just going with the flow. Of course, it didn't hurt that we were visiting Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles who spent the whole time loving on her. This girl loves being the center of attention!
A few exciting things happened this month. First, at the very beginning of the month, June got her first tooth (bottom left)! And then a day later, her second tooth popped up (bottom right). She now has two little teeth. Yay!
Second, at the very end of the month, June learned how to sit up on her own when we sit her up. She seems so much happier now that she can sit up. She used to get so upset when we would put her down, because she liked to be up where she could see what was going on.
June also discovered shrieking this month. That made for some fun plane rides :) She is so verbal. She is constantly making noises and babbling. And if she's got something to say, you better listen! She'll get louder and louder until we give her our undivided attention.
June is still a great sleeper and she still loves food, however, she's not a very good nurser. She gets so distracted and wants to watch everything around her. I have to go to a quiet place with few distractions in order to nurse her and even then she has a hard time. She's also VERY squirmy still. I've never seen a baby move as much as she does. She never. sits. still.
A few fun firsts this month...
first 4th of July
fist time in the ocean (here with Aunt Sara)
first time on a boat (here with Mimi)
first time in a "big girl" high chair
It was another great month with our June Bug. We just love to watch her grow and learn each day. I am amazed at how fast the past 7.5 months have gone by. We just love our little girl!
