Penelope Darling: 7 Months

Weight: Remember how last month my guess was that she was 16 pounds? Well, now she is 16 pounds. She was weighed about 10 days ago and was 15 pounds 10 ounces. She is in the 20th percentile. 

Clothes: mainly mainly 3-6 months, but can pull off the 6-12 month leggings at baby gap! (if rolled, of course!). Its fun to dress her, now that she is really filling out and able to sit up and all. I adore getting her little outfits! 

Likes: Alone time. Its so strange, but pretty incredible at the same time. A couple of days ago, she was fussy and frustrated. I brought her to her room, set up some toys on her rug, set her in there, and left the room. I heard her cooing and having the time of her life. We both got a bit of alone time! She is in love with blowing raspberries (80% of her awake time today was spent practicing. She's a pro now), rolling over and over and over and over again, sleeping on her belly! We put her down on her back but she rolls over and stays put on that belly for the rest of the night. She loves when her dad plays his acoustic for her, it calms her down immediately, and she just stares at him in awe. It's the sweetest to watch at the end of each day. 

Dislikes: Having to put shirts on over her head (I mean ugh, right?) being bored (which is happening more and more quickly these days), being in her carseat (still), being tired/hungry.

Social: Such a little ham, of course. Adores everyone she meets, hasn't hit her clingy phase (can you not have one, dear?), so is happy with anyone. She is in our church nursery twice a week (during Sunday morning's and my Friday morning bible study that lasts a couple of hours), and does great! We wanted to start that young, so she hopefully will have a smooth transition when preschool 35 years. 

Milestones: She is a little tumbleweed, rolling back to front to front to back....she'll roll and roll and roll and has so much fun with the whole process. 

Little P. Darling sporting her adorable Vera Bradley booties. You can't tell from the picture, but there is a little white bow on the front of each bootie.
