7 months

This time 7 months ago I had already been in the hospital almost 9 hours. I was admitted at midnight to start the induction process. Little did I know I had a long day a head of me. I still have about another 2 until I got the epidural. It still seems like yesterday, but it wasn't. It was 7 months ago. This post isn't about me, or the birthing process, this is about the sweet babes.

You are 7 months old already! Mommy cannot believe it. It seems like yesterday I brought you home from the hospital and here you are turning into a sweet little lady. You are always smiling, even when it is way past nap time. You make everyone around you have a better day. You now have 2 bottom teeth, and are starting to crawl EVERY WHERE. You are so determined, if you can't get some place fast enough by crawling, you get there by rolling. You love your dogs so much, you laugh whenever they are playing. You love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and are even starting to dance to the music.  You got baptized 2 weeks ago, and as always you made momma so proud. Your cousin Autumn got you this ladybug and you love it. It is definitely coming to come with us on vacation, it helps you sleep. You also love swimming. I know you could stay all day in the pool if I let you and I am not looking forward to summer ending and you not being able to swim anymore! I guess we will have to do swim lessons in the fall/winter. I am sure I have shared this picture before, but how can you resist this face?

In less than 2 months we will be going on our first vacation to the beach. I have NO idea how you will do, the sand worries me more than the ocean. But, I know we will have a blast, we do EVERY DAY! I just wanted to let you know that I fall in love with you more and more everyday and your laugh melts my heart. You complete me. I love you! Happy 7 months! Here's to many many more months and lots and lots of memories!

I love you more than all the grains of sand in the ocean.

she is more like you than her daddy, so i think she'll do fine at the beach. we'll take a trial run when you're on vacay next month. (and remember: we have the pool.)
