Lillian is seven months old today! It’s crazy how fast time has been flying by and how fast she’s growing and developing. I’m worried that I haven’t been taking enough pictures, which may be a little irrational since I have about five gigabytes of photos sitting on my desktop right now.
One big development that’s happened over past month is rolling over. Lillian can reliably roll over from back to front now, although she still seems to have a little trouble doing the reverse. Sometimes during the night, she’ll roll over onto her tummy and then start crying due to being stuck, so it’ll be nice once she can do both directions more easily.
Mother’s Day — my first one as a mom — came and went the weekend before last, and we had a little family barbecue for the occasion. The weather was lovely, and we ate burgers and hot dogs and potato salad while sitting out on the patio. Lillian seemed to enjoy the time outside:
Aside from that, not too much has changed since the six month baby update. Teething hasn’t started yet, and she’s still not quite crawling, although she can push up on her hands really far now. Lots of times, she’ll roll over onto her tummy and then push up into a position like this:
And she still hates banana — we even mashed up a fresh one to see if there was any difference from the pre-made store-bought purees, and she made the most disgusted face, like we were trying to feed her a lemon or a grapefruit or something… hehe. It’ll be interesting to see if she eventually develops a taste for banana, or if this is the start of a lasting preference.
