What a big girl!

Elizabeth is 7 months now and such a cutie pie. She has the chubbiest legs and cheeks, I just love kissing and nibbling on them. I love this age because her personality is totally coming out and it is so much fun to see her grow and observe the world around her. We went to the doctor on Friday for her 6 month checkup (yeah I know I am a little behind but I get to take Jack at the same time which is nice.) Elizabeth had 4 shots and she was so brave. She only cried for a few minutes and then she was back to her cheery big smiling self. She has been wearing the helmet for almost 4 weeks now and she doesn't even notice it anymore. It is working really well too, her head is becoming nice, round, and pumpkin like. There are a few things that I hate about it though. It is harder to kiss her, and snuggle with her and it makes her head stink. But other than that I am adjusting to it too. Here are some other things about Lizzy at this stage:

-she is sitting up unsupported
-she loves real food including fruit, squash, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, graham crackers, puffs, and cheerios. She hates sweet potatoes and peas.
-she loves her brother, especially when he plays with her in the bath or in her walker
-she hates taking naps but will sleep all night (I guess we can't have it all)
-she likes to stand up but hates sitting
-still loves doing Pilate crunches
-she likes playing peek-a-boo and can take the blanket off her own head which she thinks is really fun
-she still has gorgeous baby blue eyes
-if she wants something she will roll all over to get it
-she is mischievous , I don't know how she does it but you have to keep anything at least 2 feet away or she will get it
-she loves her toes
-she loves blowing raspberries and getting raspberries from her mom

She is such a happy baby and we love her so much. Here are her stats:

17.8lbs (75%)
27 inches (95%)
head circumference (25%) *her head looks bigger with the helmet on

I cannot believe she is already 7 months and that Jack is 2 this month! WOW! How long does Lizzy have to wear the helmet for?
