Robyn’s 7 Month Portraits

Gallery Link

Can you believe I am seven months old?  So what’s new with me, you ask?

Well, I am eating baby food a couple of times a day.  I really like carrots, but also eat peas and bananas.  Mom’s milk is still my favorite, though.

I can now get myself up into a sitting position.  I like to scoot around backwards, and sit up, and grab whatever I can get my hands on.  I can get to just about anywhere in the living room – but not on purpose.  No matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to get where I want to go.  I have no idea how to scoot forward yet.  That makes me mad, sometimes.

You know what else?  I can pull myself up and stand if I have the right thing to grab on to.  If somebody offers me some fingers to grab on to while I am sitting up, I will pull myself right up.  I also like to prop myself up on daddy when he is lying on the floor.  And if I can get over there, I can pull myself up using Reagan’s toy box too.

I really like my big sister.  I watch her do all sorts of stuff, and she usually makes me laugh.  She is not a fan of me touching her toys, though.

I miss you all very much, and can’t wait till the next time I am able to see you.  I hope you like my pictures.  I have lots of fun taking them :)

Robyn is getting very close to crawling.  She gets herself up on all fours, and she can go backwards, sort of, but the whole forward-thing still eludes her.  Her latest trick is getting herself up into a sitting position, starting from lying prone.  She is pretty proud of herself.  She also likes to stand up – still with help, of course, but less and less.  She will be able to pull herself up into a standing position on her own very soon.  She’s getting good at propping herself un on daddy on her knees, but hasn’t figured out how to get her feet under herself yet.  She is growing up too fast for us, and is still such a happy little thing.
