bath time, 7 months old

seven months seems a lot like six months. huh, and people say babies grow up so fast.

vivi updates:

she likes her food like she likes her men, hot and mushy...

in the morning, she will sit in her bed quietly waiting for someone to notice her and pick her up

at night she will sit in her bed and wail at window shaking volumes until the neighbors notice her

she has amazing amazing care from 2 amazing sisters while we are at work...amazing

we are afraid to take her out of the house because of swine flu...is that overprotective or smart prevention? don't answer that.

she has a quick and ravenous shark bite that friggin hurts. i have been on the phone and screamed into the ears of listeners as she is going in for some blood and i am trying to prevent her from biting without hurting her (too much)

she misses her granny winnie...

she is annoyed by three dots in a row...

vivi is crawling, and playing, and eating, and refusing to go to bed. when she stops crying at night, she is sleeping in a sitting position swaying back and forth. quite maddening..

Little Scout rolls like a boss! She is generous with smiles and drool, but quite stingy with laughs. She loves peek-a-boo and will give up a laugh now and then. Rolling over and moving her head from side to side has rubbed out a lot of hair on the sides of her head, and she is now sporting a mowhawkish do.

Nolan continues to be a stellar brother and has been excellent at avoiding diaper duties!

I need to get some video of her laugh; it rocks. Unfortuneately I left my camera at a cousins in Kenosha. I sure hope I took some pictures of John, Danielle, and Abigail...

She loves Sophie the giraffe
