Seven Months!

Lily is now seven months old. Here's a quick summary of what's been going on with our youngest:

Mobile Baby!
Lily is rolling and scooting all over the place. She is always in search of the nearest scrap of paper, teeny hair clip, or other forbidden object. I have already had to snag a few things out of her mouth. It comes with the territory when you have two older girls who don't always pick up after themselves (ok, sometimes it's been me leaving things behind too).

I'm still making Lily's baby food. Really though, I've only made two more things because when you make a food once you have a good inventory in the freezer to last a while. So far Lily has sampled sweet potatoes, squash, carrots (store-bought but I plan to make some soon), apples, and pears.

You can't use the words "baby", "sleep", and "consistent" in the same sentence. One (or two) night(s) she'll sleep through the night when other nights she'll still wake up once or twice. Naps end up being 30 minutes to 2 hours long depending on if she's sleeping deeply and we're all quiet enough for her. Some nights she'll fall asleep on her own while other nights (when she's over-tired) we have to help her out.

Other Milestones
Lily is still toothless. Also, she can sit, but only with assistance still. She's always diving for the nearest thing she can stick in her mouth. Also, she does plenty of babbling and screeching and laughing.
