7 Months Old

I can't believe that Micah Claire is 7 months today. It seems like just yesterday I was meeting her for the first time. I wonder if you ever forget the events of that special day; like how your little angel sounded the first time you ever heard her cry. I hope to God that those sweet memories never fade. You tend to forget how lucky and blessed you are to be a parent till you meet a couple who has been trying for years to conceive; or a couple has just suffered a miscarriage. We have friends who are going through both situations and we want you to know that you all are in our daily prayers!

Today Micah Claire weighed 18# 3 oz and she's 27 1/2 inches long! She is just growing like a weed. We've had to buy a big girl car seat because she's too long for the infant car seat (imagine that). I know one day she'll enjoy being tall, but for right now it's hard for mom & dad to keep her in clothes that fit.

This week we started Micah on peaches and she actually liked them. I was shocked because she's not too big on fruits. This week she has started doing more exciting things. She can now stand on her own and balance for a few seconds, wave bye-bye, clap her hands, and do patty cake. If you ask her for a kiss she'll now give you a BIG open mouth kiss. But, you have to
be careful because sometimes she'll try and slip you the tongue!

Cutie Patootie! The good news is that spring is here, and people will just think those pants that are too short are capris!
