Marley at 7 Months

Seven months my baby has been making all kinds of milestones. For one month, we have gotten to witness them. While I will never know what she accomplished in the first six months without us, I do know that the last four weeks with us, she is making great strides! When coming into our arms at just six months old she:
  • held her head up
  • reached for objects
  • smiled, cooed and laughed
  • occasionally rolled over
  • could pull up chest off of floor
  • said dada
  • woke 2-3 times a night
  • weighed 13.2 lbs.
  • has a mouth full of gum
  • could not bear any weight on her legs
At seven months old, she can:
  • pulls up her chest off the floor and holds it
  • screams and has the most hilarious laugh!
  • rolls over and over
  • scoots backwards
  • imitates (scrunches her nose and smacks her lips)
  • blows raspberries
  • sleeps all night
  • using those leg muscles!
  • loves the johnny jumper!
  • started eating food, she prefers (pureed of course!)
  • weights 14ish lbs.
  • still no teeth
And because you are here for the pictures and not

I love it! Marley is so cute...and your son's curls - holy cow! They are gorgeous! The tigger on the front of that jump-up is pretty funny...something about it just doesn't look right but it makes me giggle!! Mari couldn't bear weight on her feet when we came home...amazing what a few days in a jumper can do for them. Merry Christmas!

Precious! Amazing what a little mother's love can do for these kiddos.

How did you get her to sleep through the night?! Oh my God! Email me! I'm so jealous!

We need to set up a play date for our girls. I think they are both at the same milestones.

She is so cute!

Could you email me at

I had some questions concerning what you guys are doing for citizenship. We have gotten a lot of conflicting information and just want to see what someone else has heard.
