I wouldn't say we're that close to crawling, but we have some backwards wiggle movement going on. Fiona can slide backwards until she gets stuck in the corner and makes her struggle face. This makes CeCe pretty uncomfortable so I was amazed when I saw her laying so close on the floor this morning. Fiona officially passed the 7 month mark this week. She holds her hand out and babbles gagaga, bababa and dadada almost constantly (unless she has her thumb in her mouth or is busy holding her bottle herself!). We tried bananas this week with pretty much the same outcome. Just holding it in the front of her mouth, I'm not sure if she actually swallowed any! She still fits into 6 month tops, but has started wearing 9 month bottoms, she has long legs like her mama....cute, but harder to shop for.
The first week at the new daycare went great for Fiona and made my morning commute a little easier (win!) Besides really short naps, the teachers said she did fabulously and was pretty happy most of the day. We've been able to get some longer naps at home lately once we had a stroke of genius and decided to move her upstairs with the sound machine instead of downstairs in the play yard. And aHa, we should actually close her door all the way so CeCe can't get in there to wake her up. Why does it take so long to figure out these little obvious things?!
