7 Months

I've had a VERY active 7th month! I learned to crawl while in Columbus over 4th of July weekend, so I've been busy exploring. I have also been pulling myself up on furniture the last 2 weeks. And, just in the last week, I started walking along the furniture, while also learning how to pull myself up in my crib! Yikes! Now Mommy and Daddy REALLY have to keep a close eye on me! They've been baby-proofing the house in between the trips we've been taking. As I said, we went to Columbus to watch fireworks and see all my cousins over the 4th. Aunt Joni brought me a really cool toy that lights up and plays music when you push the buttons. It's one of my favorites now! Last weeked we were in IA and MN for a family reunion on my Mommy's side. I got another boat ride and went swimming in the lake with Gramma. Grampa gave me my first tractor ride on the farm too! I took the steering wheel and was ready to go!
I'm becoming a good eater. I still LOVE my sweet potatoes, but also like applesauce, pears, peaches, peas and carrots. I eat all kinds of rice cereal and oatmeal and still take the bottle with Mommy's milk. Mommy says she's ready to be done, but is holding out so she doesn't have to pay for formula.  We're also starting to work on the sippy cup. Oh, and my first tooth finally broke through! Yay!
