Week 18:  Sunny days

7.5 months old

This is one of those posts where I just couldn’t pick one.  Impossible.  Thursday was the first day that we really spent time outside with Lucy.  Not that she hasn’t been outside before, but she usually would freak out because it was too cold or windy or whatever other random reason a baby might freak out.  But the weather has been getting beautiful and so we spent the afternoon and evening at my parents place.  They have a lovely big back yard with lots of shade which is great for me and my ivory baby.

She’s getting so good at sitting on her own and rarely falls over now.  She prefers to play sitting up now, and gets frustrated when she is laying.  She has also developed a new…um…unique way of moving around.  Since she hates being on her stomach (and turns right back to her back as soon as you lay her) she is nowhere near crawling.  But, if she is on her back she will arch her back and balance on her heals and the top of her head and scoot around.  Whatever hair she does have is going to be rubbed off soon, I fear.

I got her a pair of sunglasses which she thinks are the funniest thing.  Every time I put them on her she gets a big goofy grin on her face.

She is desperately trying to walk on her own, and often tries to let go of your hands and go if you hold her up.  Seriously baby, you are 7.5 months old and not even crawling! Take it easy!
