The Seventh Month

What Norah Jayne is up to these days:

She loves to MOVE! Gone are the days when I could set her on the floor and expect her to be there when I turn around! She is crawling and pulling up.

She now says "Baba" which we think is her attempt at "Mama." We will tell her, "Say Mama!" and in response she used to say "Dada!" But now she stops and presses her lips together like I do when I say "Mama" and she says "Baba!"

She loves to play with her "toys" a conglomeration of items that look like "no nos" but are kosher- ac remotes that no longer work, an old calculator and Spelling Ace, pink measuring cups, etc... of course we do have real toys for her, but for some reason she prefers the "no nos." 

She is eating well! We have introduced all the fruits and veggies you can buy in a jar (which is limited) and of course she gets her rice cereal. 

She has TWO teeth, the lower middle ones (central incisors).

She loves to pull hair (she recently discovered Kirk's leg hairs are fun to pull) and to pinch noses and lips... Ouch! We are trying to curtail that behaviour. 

She now is pretty much always sleeping on her belly. I put her on her back, but she always turns over.
Did I mention that Daddy and I still like to go in and "spy" on her while she sleeps?
She is too cute to watch.

She is in to EVERYTHING- loves to explore every nook and cranny of the house. Usually she discovers the nooks and cranny's that we don't want her to... her favorites- outlets, cords, trashcans, the vacuum cleaner, electronics (DVD player, camera, computer, the computer mouse).

She is afraid of the sound of flushing toilets...? I don't know why, but every time we are in a public restroom and someone flushes the toilet, she starts crying. Hopefully this passes because when she is seventeen it could be a problem.

She loves music. Whenever we have music playing she stops and stares. She loves for her daddy to sing to her and he does frequently. We hope she is musically inclined.

 She is ticklish on her lower back and under her chin. It is sweet to hear her giggle!

I could go on and on...

Below: Snaps of Norah around the house... Her favorite hideout is under the piano bench.
 We call her crazy legs because she comes up with some interesting sitting positions!
