On Saturday Tessa turned 7 months. It's hard to believe how much has changed in her growth, development, and personality since she was 6 months old.
She's so close to crawling we just know that any day now she'll take off. She hasn't figured out that her knees are there to assist her though, so right now she digs her toes into the carpet and pushes/lunges herself forward to get somewhere. But, she certainly can move around the room at will. She does get a really intense look on her face when she's trying to move. She's bound and determined to get where she thinks she needs to and she gets there, one way or another!
She is sitting unassisted now which is so fun. She has figured out how to get from sitting to laying on the ground, but can't get to sitting from the ground just yet. She loves music and laughs at anything that sings, including American Idol, her toys, her daddy in the shower, and mom in the car.
She is wearing mostly 6-9 month clothes. She is still really long and skinny so depending on what she's wearing, she has different sizes. She's wearing some 3-6 months stuff and also has some 12 month onesies that fit her. It's crazy to look in her closet and see 18 month and 2t clothes because I don't think she'll ever be wearing them. Then again, I thought the 6-9 month clothes looked huge.
We just moved her to 3 meals a day and she loves to eat. We've also started introducing some finger foods for her to try. So far she just makes a mess but some gets in her mouth and it's just practice anyways!
