7 months today!

Ayla turned 7 months today. Where does the time go? She weighs 16 lbs now and is 26 1/2 inches long. She is getting to be a big girl. I think it is all the solids she has been on. She eats solids 4 times a day now.

She has learned and has accomplished many things during her 6th months. She definitely knows her name. We thought she kind of knew it before but we know for sure now. The other night she was in her swing minding her own business and Kurt was singing a song about her. She wasn't paying attention until he sang her name. She immediately looked over at him and started to giggle. She loves to hear her name.

She has started to say, "Ba, Ba, Ba." It is a lot softer than when she started saying "La, La, La" last month. She loves to hear her voice but it seems that she has toned it down a little, that is until she starts getting mad. She will start screaming "La, La, La!" She is so funny.

This was taken today in our kitchen.

Ayla has learned that she can stand in her walker and she knows now that she can push with her legs to get it to move backwards. Can you tell in the picture she is about to start yelling "La, La, La!"? She makes me laugh.

Ayla has grown into her shoes that Grandma Chris bought her 3 months ago. Aren't they so cute on her? Grandma Chris also bought her the Kansas shirt she is wearing when she went to visit her friend Val in Kansas. It is so cute. It has a tornado on it.

Ayla is really starting to get around. I can't leave her in the room for two seconds. She has learned to scoot during her 6th month.

One of the accomplishments for me was getting her crib in. Now she sleeps on her own and she seems to be sleeping through the night. Such a good baby! :)
