7 Months

Still no teeth for my Abi girl, but she gums the heck out of spinach, baby bok choy, apples, pears, carrots (no joke), and celery. Her FAVORITE food is roasted sweet potatoes.
She can rotate on her belly, and sometimes she even gets up on all fours. (Her brothers have no idea what's about to hit them!)

The dog is RIDICULOUSLY jealous, but accepts that Abi is above him in the chain of command. She's not super gentle yet, but he still lets her pet him. He prefers to keep a safe distance though.

In other news, we have yet another new refrigerator! I alluded to it two weeks ago, but didn't specify: our other one caught fire (not kidding). The big tragedy there was that I had just bought ice cream...

It's totally worth handing the baby a lollipop you found in the bottom of the diaper bag. Times when you've had a rough week (ANOTHER fridge died yesterday), forgotten the pacifier when you went to church, and your baby has missed two naps already.
At least it matched her dress...

6 Months!

So... I'm feeling a little bad here, because Abi didn't get a 4 or 5 month post. I guess that just comes with being the 4th child. At least her pictures have been posted a few times, so I can prove to her in her teen years that she existed and I loved her...
Abi is sitting like a pro now! She still loves to pretend she's Superman, still loves to read Sally Sheep, and still fusses if I forget her headband. She took to sleep training pretty well, and has a regular routine of reading Sally Sheep, screaming while I sing to her, and crying for almost exactly 4 minutes every time I put her down. And then she wakes up happy. I'll take it!
Abi's favorite foods are sweet potatoes, pears, peas, apples, rice, oatmeal, and lentils. She eats EVERYTHING, and in quantities rivaling Jon's food consumption as a baby.
She's still happy 99% of the time, super sweet, and definitely adored.
