// Hannah turned seven months (WHAT?!) last week. It has been a busy/crazy/fun month with our little girl! And if you can't tell from the pictures above, Hannah is definitely getting some payback for Micah's playful, yet aggressive behavior with her early on (get him, girl! haha). Here are the highlights...

Weight/Height

The bathroom scale at home says she hasn't gained much this month as far as weight goes - still a little over 16lbs. I know she has at least gotten longer, because she has grown out of some outfits. But I think I remember that weight gain slows down around now once they start becoming more active (which she DEFINITELY has been!)

Sleep

Sleep is going great! Still taking two naps a day (unless we're out and about and then she may skip her morning nap) and sleeping a straight twelve hours at night.

Sizes

Size 3 diapers and 9 month clothing!

Eating

Nursing about 4-5 times per day, eating two "meals" (puréed baby food) during lunch and dinner and snacking (puffs, Cheerios) in-between. She has also learned to feed herself this month with her fingers, so that is another blessing! A busy mama of two definitely appreciates the little milestones like hand-eye coordination! ;)

Milestones

This month Hannah learned to crawl (army-style), feed herself puffs and Cheerios, and mimic sounds and actions (I raise my hands in the air and she attempts it too!) She's close to learning to wave too - she holds out her hand, now we just have to get the fingers moving! :) She now has four teeth - two bottom and two top. She is a very efficient xylophone player (or banger) and let's just say, her lungs have developed. There is no quiet at our house when the kids are awake.

Likes

Screaming (for joy, frustration, fear, hunger, pretty much everything), crawling, food (especially the kind she can feed herself), music, being held and talked to all the day long.

Dislikes

Being tickled! She cries instead of laughing! Poor thing. And currently, Micah is going through a phase where he loves tickling her. Oops.

Things I Don’t Want to Forget

We took Hannah to Disney for the first time this month and she absolutely loved it! She did so well! I am so proud of how easygoing and flexible she is. She had a great time and enjoyed all the characters and the rides that we went on as family. I wasn't expecting it to be as easy as it was - but we had no meltdowns or anything. So that is definitely something I want to remember! :)

Eden Elizabeth | 1 Year

I am so excited to share with you all sweet little Eden Elizabeth's one year old session! She is the daughter of one of my dear high school friends - Jodie. There are some friends that come and go during your lifetime, but I am thankful that Jodie is one of those friends that I've been able to keep in contact with through the years. I can't believe we are coming up on our 10 year reunion! And here we are both with little babies of our own. :) It was so fun to capture these photos of Eden in the home Jodie grew up in. Eden is such an adventurous girl at heart and loved exploring every part of the beautiful garden outside. I also learned of her incredible love for pillows! She was happiest when rolling around with them in the grass. It was the cutest thing! And I can't say I've seen anything quite like it before. ;) DSC_0024 _SnapseedDSC_0076 _Snapseed DSC_0120 _Snapseed DSC_0134 _Snapseed _Snapseed DSC_0142 _Snapseed DSC_0163 _Snapseed DSC_0167 _Snapseed DSC_0177 _Snapseed DSC_0301 _Snapseed DSC_0334 _Snapseed DSC_0339 _Snapseed DSC_0416 _Snapseed DSC_0423 _Snapseed DSC_0449 _Snapseed DSC_0516 _Snapseed _Snapseed DSC_0557 _Snapseed DSC_0587 _Snapseed
