Not So Small!
Our little Brooke is now 7 months old! I seriously can not believe how fast time goes by when you have a child!!! In some ways it is so exciting to see your little baby grow and change and learn new things, and in other ways it is so sad to see those same things happen. I just wish time would move just a little bit slower so I could enjoy each and every stage more before it is over! I have absolutely loved every single stage of this little girl's life. I just feel like it gets better and better! Every single day I find myself more captivated by this little person, I feel my heart grow every single day, I feel myself fall even more deeply in love then the day before. I can not even imagine how much I will love this little lady the day she gets married. If my love keeps growing the way it is each and every day, I am honestly frightened by the love I will have for her! The power her life has is amazing to me!
Brooke has brought so much joy to our home, so much laughter, so many smiles, I could not even imagine our home without her. I try to think back on the days before she was here and they just seem boring! My days are filled with joy! Her daddy and I are so smitten!
This past month has been a month of growth and discovery. I feel like it has been a window to a whole new world that is to shortly come! Brooke has gotten SO good with her little hands and fingers! She LOVES to point at everything, it is SO CUTE!!! There are moments where it looks like she is trying to sign something to me but at the same time what she is doing does not look familiar to me quite yet. She does the same thing over and over so I assume it means something? She can now pick up small things with her fingers and can place little foods in her mouth without a problem. Brooke eats all kinds of stuff, it is SO NICE that she is eating real foods and not baby foods because I just feed her pieces of my meal most of the time. We LOVE Submarina because she gets to eat a bunch of my veggies, meat and bread. The ladies at Submarina are IN LOVE with Brooke and even give her her own little plate. She is a GOOD EATER and has just discovered that she LOVES Mac n Cheese (which she also LOVED while in my belly)! Brooke is also making all kinds of new faces, noises, and gestures! She days Dada, Gaga, Rara, Bbbrrraaa.., but not MAMA yet! I do not think she knows what she is saying quite yet so I feel it does not count that she is saying dada first until she KNOWS what she is saying :) Brooke talks baby talk ALL THE TIME and gets quite a bit of attention because she brings it on to herself with her big voice! She is working on the crawling thing but has not quite figured it out yet! We shall see when that happens??? AND she just cut her first tooth this past weekend!!! It is still super low so you can't really get a picture of it yet but it should be up in no time. I am going to cry when it looks like she has teeth :( Brooke can also understand the words dada, mama, doggy, baba, binka binka (pacifier), blankey, bath, all done, lay down, nappy, and nigh night! Well it seems she understands them! I think that is the big stuff from this month. O and she still LOVES her Baby Einstein movie, she cracks up to it and gets SO EXCITED, it is SO CUTE!!!
7 month stats:
27 inches long
(these are done by mommy so who knows how accurate they are?)
Now for some pictures!
Now for the many faces of Brooke!
This face is SO Brooke!!!
Cute and Tired!
This is the best shot I have gotten so far of her new fishy lips face! She does it all the time and I can't get an in focus picture of it for some reason!
This is her new thing as well, she loves to turn her head sideways, what a silly goose!
This is the new toy, purchased with the money Papa Wyrick gave Brooke for Valentines day, thanks Papa!
Another form of soothing! Much better then a binkey says Mama!
Another new thing, grabbing her head and pulling her hair! Silly Kid!
Snoozing with Daddy!
Mommy thinks Brooke is starting to look more like her? What do you think?
And this is daddy, I think a little younger than Brooke is now but you get the idea right?
It has been a great month! Can't wait to see what this next month brings! Love you Brookie!
