Gabriella- 7 months old

     At 7 months, Gabriella weighs 20.8 pounds and is 29 inches long. She is wearing 12-18 month clothes (mostly because of her long torso) and in size 3 diapers. This month Gabriella mastered rolling....everywhere. She doesn't stay in one place long! She also became much better at sitting up and occupying herself with toys.

     We celebrated Valentines day by...doing nothing! It was perfect. Oh we did take a walk to the froyo place down the street (how convenient) and I gave Gabriella her first taste of froyo. She loved it!

     Speaking of Valentines Day, Gabriella had her first kiss with a the church.. #whathappensinthechurchnurserystaysinthechurchnursery

       My parents came for a visit for a week while Manny was in Las Vegas for business. My mom watched the little miss while I worked and they all spent lots of time outside. Gabriella loves to be outside. Manny was back in town for a few days before they left so of course we had to hit up our favorite bbq place-Lucille's!

    While my parents were here, we stopped by our fertility clinic to introduce Gabriella to our wonderful Dr. Norian and his staff. I was so glad my mom could also meet them! It was like a mini family reunion, and it was so fun to see them all and catch up. We love our HRC family and are so thankful for the journey we've been on and the blessing they (and many others) have been to our family!
     Gabriella is sleeping 10-12 hours at night and taking 3 naps. Nap time has been a bit of a challenge as a certain someone doesn't want to go to sleep.

     We can't believe how fast this month flew by. We stayed pretty busy with work, visitors, and chasing around a rolling little girl. She is very laid back and a tough. She hardly ever cries when she falls over, rolls into a wall etc....something she did NOT inherit from me :)

     I was extra motivated and made a bunch of Gabriella's food (hello cheaper and healthier?). Sadly, she much prefers the squeeze packs and baby food from the store :( At the end of this month, we are starting to incorporate table food.

     We've also packed up almost all the "baby" clothes and the infant carrier. Gabriella had practically outgrown her carseat and had mutilated the sun shade thing. Ooops! We love all the new things miss G does and discovers but at the same time are a little sad she is growing up so fast!

This month again flew by and you are keeping us on our toes even more. Rolling is your source of getting to where you want to go. You cover ground pretty quickly and we can hardly take our eyes of of you because you are quick to find things to put in your mouth (shoes are a favorite).  You are very happy and content. You LOVE the dogs, and they do pretty good with you. Most of the time they stay clear of you but every once in awhile they will let you near them...and then you grab on and they run! You aren't too interested in the food I've made you but love the baby food we get at the store...of course! You have started eating bananas (in little pieces) and love those. You really just love anything banana. Your face lights up whenever your dad walks into the room and you get loud! It has been fun to see all the new things you have learned and mastered this month. We should lose plenty of weight by just chasing you :)
