Chloe, it's December 28, 2010 and you are seven months old today!
You just celebrated your first Christmas! More on that later...
Your naps are still going well. When you are tired, you are pretty easy to get to sleep. That may seem like an obvious statement. I know there are moms out there that can relate when I say that a sleepy baby does not always mean you'll have a sleeping baby.You are doing fantastic with solids. We have even tried a few table items like beans, french onion soup and wheat bread. I just give them to you here and there to see if you can chew, or use your pincher grip to get them in your mouth. We are also substituting formula some now. We started over the Christmas break and you seem to like it. It's hard for me to give up nursing completely. I think we both benefit from it.

You have four teeth now. You like to show off your teeth in pictures.

You sit up so well now. You won't put yourself into a sitting position but once you are in it you can maneuver around pretty well. You'll lay on your belly to grab something and then push yourself back up. You are getting so close to crawling. I hope by next month I can say you are...maybe I don't. haha.
My favorite thing recently has been my realization that you are actively imitating us. Since you were born, I've done this bobbing thingwith my head when your musical toys go off. Over Christmas, we all noticed that you were swaying your head when the music came on. You are imitating me and it is so cute. You also make a growling noise that is your version of what your Daddy and I do when we tickle you. It really drives home the notion that you are all eyes and we need to be setting a good example for you.
We love you, Miss Chloe!
