Dear Audrey,

I'm not going to say how fast time is going, but I'm thinking it. You are 7 months old today! What an accomplishment. At your last doctor's visit (for your 6-month check-up and an ear infection:(, you weighed 15.4 lb. and was 26.75 in. long. Daddy and I thought you'd be much heavier than that, but we were wrong. I guess you're going to be a skinny little girl. You were in the 30th percentile for weight and 78th for length. 

You're sleeping in your crib now, full-time. It wasn't as painful as I'd thought it would be, thanks to our trip to the beach. You slept in the co-sleeper in our room while we were there, and when we came home, you went right to your crib (Daddy's idea). It was great, since it was like a new start. Daddy never even set up the co-sleeper in our room when we got back.

For 5 or 6 nights, Daddy slept on the air mattress in your room while you were getting used to the crib. Dr. W, your pediatrician, said it would probably take at least 2 weeks, but you're a pro. When you wake up in the morning, you look around and just take in your surroundings for a while. I'm glad you no longer wake up're very peaceful. Of course, if we don't come get you soon enough, you'll let us know about it! 

You've tried your first vegetable...peas. You were fairly disgusted the first time you tried them, but now you're eating them up. We're so proud of you. We'll probably start with some carrots today, and we hope your skin doesn't turn orange. That's what happened to your cousin when she ate too many carrots as a baby!

So, we'll take your 7-month picture today and just enjoy being together as a family. Since Daddy's off work for the summer, we get to spend lots and lots of time together.

We love you so much, Bug. Happy 7-month birthday.

With all my love,
