Today was a big day.
C turned 7 months old today. I can’t believe how big she is getting. Just to give a reference to her size – I bought 9 months sleepers for her yesterday that looked HUGE. Hubby went to dress her for bed tonight and looked at me like I was crazy wanting to put her in this get up. Well, they fit. I must admit I was surprised too.
Let’s see what she is doing these days:
*sitting up well – the head still gets in the way a lot. 🙂
*talking a lot – making a lot of different sounds
*still not rolling over – no desire to do so either
*loves to stand
*really into textures and touches/observes everything
*really wishes she had teeth to eat whatever we are. she has started solids but it is hit or miss.
*already is a princess 🙂
I am sure she is doing a plethora of other things that I can’t remember right now.
We went to take pictures at a portrait studio in a retail store today. This is only the second time doing this (once with J and this time with C). The price is amazing but I don’t like it. I like going to a real photographer but don’t like spending the money they charge (especially here in Houston). I have had sticker shock at the prices here. A friend actually referred me to a local photographer who seems reasonable. Most places here charge $300 for a sitting fee. Just a sitting fee. I don’t think so. Anyway, I plan on getting family pictures when C is closer to a year.
Back to the picture session today. J wanted nothing of having C sit next to him. I only got 1 picture with him smiling. This session was really for her. I was able to pick a few pics of C that looked cute. So, 6 month pics – check!
Happy Mother’s day to all the mommas out there. We went to eat at my grandparents independent living place today. They had a nice set up with good food. Well, J went crazy towards the end of the meal. He asked me to take him to get fruit from the buffet. We are walking along just fine, when he drops to the floor and refuses to get up. They proceeds to roll across the floor and tries to pull the tablecloth off of the food line. Thank goodness it was one of those table skirts that velcroed to the table b/c if not he would have pulled down the carving station on him. I WAS MORTIFIED! Timeout ensued and shortly after we left. J woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. It is so hard to regulate J. We went to a friends house Friday night and J played with her two boys. They had a blast rough housing and wrestling. J who has a lot of trouble with social ques and interaction is now wanting to be physical with others/kids in not appropriate situations. This morning at the picture place J walks up to another kid and gives him the shoulder. I know he as wanting to interact and play, but it did not come across that way. Behavioral psychologist here we come.
Totally changing gears, I have been thinking about C’s birthmother a lot today. I want to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day, and we have her in our thoughts. 🙂
