7 Months!!

So this post is waaayyy late. Penny actually turned 8 months old today :) My phone broke and is currently unable to sync to the computer so I can no longer take the pictures off my phone. I'm trying to take more and more pictures with our camera because the quality is so much better than my phone and its easier to upload them. I realize no one cares about these mundane details...

This month was a little hard on the poor Pen. She was sick for the majority of it. She had a cold for a couple of weeks and it just seemed to be getting worse and worse. Like the great mom that I am, I put off going to the doctor because I thought it was just a little cold and she'd get over it.

It turns out that she had a double ear infection and one of her little eardrums was just about to burst. It was very sad :(. What was even more sad was that the antibiotics they gave her did not treat her very kindly. She was so sick, poor little thing. We had some major poopage going on over here. That turned into a nasty diaper rash that would just make her scream when I tried to change her and on and on. Thankfully we've finished the antibiotics and now shes more back to normal.

In spite of all that, she is growing like crazy. She is so close to walking and standing on her own. I didn't expect it to start this soon but I'm excited for this next milestone! She loves her daddy more than ever and she won't take her eyes off of him if he enters the room. She recently started shaking her head "no" although I don't think thats what she means by it. She is a major joy to our hearts and we love her so much!!

Here are some 7 month pictures...

Little Pen spent lots and lots of time with her humidifier...

And feeling pretty miserable :(...

Having fun at the doctor's office (P.S. This is right
before she pooped on the Dr. & I had to bathe her in the sink. Not Fun)....

Playing with her new friend (pre-pooplosion)


One of Penny's favorite things to do is play under the sheets...

I am madly in love with her eyelashes :)...

Not the cutest picture ever, but I think her eyes
are getting bigger and bigger. They're gonna eventually
take up her whole face :)...

Penny also LOVES giving kisses!

One fun thing that Pen got to do is go to her cousin Ray's first birthday party!

A little walking motivation...

Penny & Mommy

The End!!
