Alia At Seven Months

Alia is now seven months old and it's going by too fast. I can't believe my third child is closer to one than she is to being a new born. It makes talking about having our fourth that much closer. NO we are not getting pregnant and having another one till 2011 but you know what I mean! The year 2011 is creeping closer.

Alia is bringing so much joy in our lives. She has the sweetest personality. She LOVES to give her mommy nice wet kisses and she's a very aggressive. She'll grab my hair, ears, face, and use her kung fu grip on my skin and pull me towards her. It hurts that crazy but makes me smile at the same time. She'll follow me wherever I go. I have to hide for her to pay attention to other people. Almost two weeks ago she started to army crawl and she will crawl in circles if that means keeping an eye on me. She'll get up on her knees every once in a while and maybe crawl with a knee or two, rock back and forth, but she mostly pushes with her feet and pulls with her arms to get where she needs to go. And boy is she fast! Drew and Brody get a huge kick out of her crawling. They'll stop whatever they are doing to watch her and giggle. We also got her ears pierced a couple of weeks ago. She was a real trooper and looks so cute with her purple earrings. Alia LOVES to eat! She will eat whatever we are eating and what she's allowed to eat. Whenever she sees us eating she'll start smacking her lips and eyeing your food. She'll even go the extra mile to steal if from your plate or fork. We have to be quick! If only her teeth could keep up with her appetite. She finally got her first two teeth and on the same day. She woke up from her worthless 10 min nap and I knew she was fussy because of her teeth. I rubbed my finger along her bottom gums and while doing so her left tooth popped through and then a couple of hours later her second. So far she's been my latest bloomer when it comes to her teeth but I am not complaining!

Alia really is such a good baby. She'll sit in her car seat the whole half an hour at Drew's swimming lessons and not pitch a fit once. She love to talk and use her tongue. She's still constantly sticking it out and chomping on it like it was gum. Twisting it in her mouth, blowing raspberries, and trying to talk. She still can't sit up on her own for more than ten seconds. We always joke that she'll be able to walk before she can sit up. She loves to stand and work her legs even though they are still so thin not to be mistaken for short. She's still long, skinny, small head and big feet.

I'll have to post better pictures soon but for now...

Alia is so very cute and makes me want another girl. I love hr earrings. We regret no piercing Taiamani's ears when she was a baby, now she's too scared to do it even though she wants to have some. Time sure flies...
She's really gorgeous!

She's so cute!! I love that little face. I can't believe how quickly time goes by, we've started talking about a 4th too and it's scary to think that that could be coming sooner rather than later too :)

Oh goodness, she's SO cute! I was laughing while reading all about her updates...I really think Alia and Ellie are perfectly adorable OPPOSITES in so many ways!....While Alia is tall, thin, small head and big feet, Elliana is not so tall, rolly-polly, takes after David's large head (hopefully the smarts come with that :), and just barely grew out of her newborn shoes! Also, I don't think Ellie will EVER crawl due to hating being on her tummy, but is a pro at sitting up! How funny...we've just GOT to get them together!!!

I wish not concur on it. I assume warm-hearted post. Especially the title attracted me to study the unscathed story.
