7 months old.

Myra hit 7 months last week. She's growing so fast and her own personality is showing more and more. We lucked out with such a happy baby!!  

She's sitting completely unassisted, getting up on all 4's and rocking (crawling soon??), babbling lots (and doing a face her dad used to do, "possessed" - last photo of this post), and smiling all the time. We started her on solid foods a la baby led weaning a couple weeks ago and so far she's had carrots (steamed), bananas, avocado, toast, cucumber, kiwi, mango, mandarin oranges... I think that's it. Cucumbers are her favorite and carrots are a close second. Avocado was a big hit but anything mushy sticks to her and makes her eczema flare up, poor girl. 

Myra had been sleeping through the night (11-12 hours straight, no wake ups) for about 6 weeks, maybe even longer, but has recently been waking up once or twice to nurse (I assume). She goes right back to sleep and naps well (unless interrupted by poop...) so we're just going with it. 

Myra and Rowdy are becoming good buds! She reaches for him to pet/scratch him whenever she can, sneaks him her carrots and tries to steal (and gnaw on) his toys. Rowdy parks it right by Myra quite a bit. I'm sure once she can crawl, and especially walk, they'll be even better friends.

No teeth yet! I keep checking, but still nothing. We're still doing great with breastfeeding and I see no reason we won't make it to at least a year. It wasn't easy at first, but I'm glad I was so stubborn.  We've found a love for babywearing which allows me (or Trevor) to snuggle Myra while walking Rowdy, cleaning, cooking, shopping, etc. 

I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff, but I think I but all the big milestones. Here are some photos:

Steele County Free Fair.

Myra and I headed to our fair today with Jenna and Letty. Total tease since I can't eat dairy (cheese curds, strawberry smoothie, dole whips, etc.) but oh year!!

We just did the animal stuff, I was going to caption all the photos but they're pretty self explanatory :)

Letty wanted to feed this donkey because he looked sad.

We've forced camels on Myra a bit since Trevor was in land of the camels (Kuwait) for the year we had to wait to try again for a baby.

I think this fave means his tongue feels gross?

I have some more photos on my camera I will add...eventually :)

Splish Splash.

Spent the day at the Faribault water park with some friends (well, family I guess, but I'm going with friends) today! Myra has been in a pool before and loves the bath, but I think she's still figuring it all out. 

I'm worthless in heat, but love being outside if I'm in/near water, so this was perfect!

Fun, fun, fun!

Total blog slacker...again. Here's my weak sauce attempt at getting back in the game. A mobile, mostly photos post.

We've had a fun weekend! Two visits from Grandpa Rich, a visit from Grandma Christy, a girls night with Lynn, LOTS of walks (6?), a trip to the library, and a visit from Amanda, Jack, Jenna and Letty (those two came all the way from Texas!).
