one month older and wiser too...


Leah turned 7 months old on Saturday! She is now rolling over in both directions (although reluctantly still from stomach to back). She sits up on her own and bleats like a lamb when she laughs. She loves to hear her own voice and will scream...and i mean scream...out of the blue just for fun (she does this only when she's happy, not sad). I think the neighbors might be wondering what is going on! She scarfs down everything we feed her including peas, pears, bananas, rice cereal, carrots, sweet potatoes, applesauce, her hands, clothes, blankets and more...and stares at us if we eat and don't share with her. And yes, she still looks like a little bird waiting to be fed.

She LOVES when Ryan comes home to play with her. That is definitley the happiest time of her day. She goes running with me a few times a week and her favorite part of our runs is when she gets to drink the water out of mom's water bottle lid. Running is hard work!!

She is growing up so fast!

Just tonight, while cooking dinner, I thought, "Maren should have Leah's seven month pictures up by now." So glad you didn't disappoint. Those are great pictures! Your blog link categorizing, however, warrants further discussion. Uh, I think we go back to the Eagle days, so I safely fall into that category. I am feeling nauseated being under the "c" listing. And what will I do if George comes across that!?

Maren,

I can not believe I found your blog! I was looking at a friends list and saw yours on there. Such a small world! (We worked together at Grabit.com, if you don't remember me)
It has been a few years and to know you have a little girl is so cool! I am excited to find your blog. I also have a blog, emilymariethomas.blogspot.com

In case you have not heard Blair Thompson (who worked with us) died a year ago in a car accident after being married to Travis for a year. They were living in Washington, he was going to medical school.

I would love to hear from you!

Love the photoshoot of your little one. Can you believe these babies are already 7 months? They aren't kidding when they say they grow up so fast. :)

I love that she screams. Rachel used to do that in church. Sometimes we would take her out because she was too happy and loud. Go figure. Leah is so cute. Are you guys going to visit anytime soon?

Happy 7 months! She is so adorable. I love your new background for your blog.
