You can sit independently (with only an occasional topple over).
You can even stand now (with a little support).
You have also started to try to crawl... You seem to have all of the pieces, but haven't quite figured out how to put everything together.
Our suspisions last month regarding teething were correct. Your middle two teeth on the bottom are now peeking through.
The most exciting development this month (in my opinion) is that you can now say da-da and ma-ma!!! You said da-da first, but ma-ma followed just a few days later. Supposedly (according to all the baby books) you don't really know what these words mean yet, but I beg to differ. A couple of times you have said ma-ma while reaching for me (I almost died)! Maybe you're a genius in the making..
We've started all of our new fall "classes." Mondays we go to storytime at the library, Tuesdays we have Rolly Pollies at Amma Maternity, and Thursdays we have ECFE at the Edina Community Center. Your favorite seems to be storytime at the library. You have really started to enjoy books! You sit on the floor in front of me and listen and touch the pictures on the page. We usually get through several books before you get bored. You also like looking at them on your own:
Last, but certainly not least, your great-grandma Berg passed away this month. I am so thankful that you were able to meet her, but wish that you had a chance to get to know her better because she was an amazing woman. On our last visit with her, just a couple of weeks ago, we played Bingo with her and her friends. Then we went back to her apartment where she held you in her arms. I'll never forget how she would hold your little hand in hers and gaze at you so lovingly. We'll miss her dearly!
Happy seven months peanut!
