Favorite activity: Sitting up and playing on a blanket with all her toys around her (at least it seems like it!)
Favorite food: Outside of breastmilk, mango (said in the voice of that weird SNL character)
Favorite spot: Sitting on her blanket, preferably with one or more dogs around her!
Naughtiest moment: Shoving sweet potato fries up her nose!
Important milestones: Retired the playgym, Transitioned to 6-12 month clothes!
How Mom's Feeling: I'm feeling pretty excellent. Hard to believe that Lorelei is 7 months old! Where has the time gone??? On the one hand, it's hard to remember what life was like without her. On the other hand, it seems like she was just born!
I packed up Lorelei's 3-6 month clothes last night. All her jammies were getting way too small! Fine in the arms, but too short in the legs and torso! Her dresses are getting short and her little khaki pants (the ones I love so much!) were too darn tight in the thighs! So I sorted through everything, kept the onesies and leggings that still fit her and packed up the rest. It's always a sad moment to pack up the too small things. For me, the hardest things to pack were the I <3 Poppy onesie and the Boston Terrier onesie I made for her. I was so proud of those!
Lorelei's new favorite thing to do is sit on a big blanket on the floor with a bunch of toys around her to play with. It certainly makes entertaining her easier! We were able to retire her playgym today, actually. We took off all the attached toys for her to keep playing with, but the mat itself is way too small, and she kept grabbing on to the poles, trying to lift herself up!
Here are some pictures from this week. Not a lot, but what we have is pretty cute!
