Dear Avery,

You are seven months old today, baby girl!  SEVEN MONTHS OLD.  Wow. 

You eat like a chow-hound, Aves! Anything Mommy puts in front of you is devoured. This month you tried for the first time: lasagna, macaroni and cheese, corn, a little bit of ice cream, grilled cheese, tomatoes, green pepper.  You have absolutely NO interest in baby purees anymore!

And you are growing in leaps and bounds.  You Grammie and Gpa, who live in NY and don't see you on a regular basis, could hardly believe how big you got!

We went to visit them and you had a fabulous time on your second road trip to NY.

You got in snuggles with your Grammie and Gpa, played with brother's toys and sampled a few apples in the orchard!

You sit upright perfectly more wobbles or falling over and face-planting.  And at the beginnig of this month, you mastered sitting upright from a laying down position. Your legs are very strong when Mommy or Daddy stands you up and I think it's only a matter of time before you try to pull yourself up!  You are still army-crawler but super fast and efficiently. You go up on all four snd rock like you want to take off, but i think you realize how much faster you can go by dropping down to your belly.

You are also a VERY strong willed girl. 

Stubborn like your Daddy, determined like your Mommy! You can get frustrated very easy and aren't afraid to show it!

This month, we went pumpkin picking! 

Instead of the regular pumpkin patch, we went to a small local farm that had tables and tables of pumpkins of various sizes.

Your eyes were big and round at the orange surrounding us and you had a great time watching your brother excitedly squeal, "Pumpkin!" over and over. 

You were so tired out, you passed out cold, sound asleep for the first time in your...big girl car seat!

  Mommy still puts you in your bucket seat in her car but when we take Daddy's truck, the big girl car seat is in that vehicle. You rode great in it!

Your new tooth is coming down quickly and what a difference it makes in that usually gummy smile of yours! And you BITE now with that sharp little baby tooth. Sometimes, you bite down hard when nursing and make Mommy scream.  But thankfully, those moments are few and far between.

All in all, you are turning into the most FUN little baby girl ever, Aves.  We love you so much!!

Mommy, Daddy and Hunter
