Last week little miss thing turned 7 months! It was a big month for her! She really took off crawling and has also started clapping her hands! She doesn't have any teeth yet and we keep thinking one will pop through any day! She is chattering with lots of ba ba ba's. Her favorite game to play is peekaboo, especially with her brother. She likes to play in her basket of toys, taking them all out one by one. She giggles at everything. She is such a happy and easy going baby. She's never fussy and is still sleeping like a champ all night, with two long naps during the day. She is eating lots of baby food. Her favorite one is a mix of brocoli pears and peas. She still loves going for walks in the stroller and taking her baths in the kitchen sink. She also loves the swimming pool! Her hair has gotten so long! We can put a little barrette in it, which is just the sweetest thing ever! She still gets a bottle before bed and every night she dramatically covers her face with her hand. She has so much personality and I love seeing her grow into a sweet little girl. I can't wait to see what the next month holds for her :)

Grocery shopping with two can be a challenge! Now that little girl can sit in the front of the cart, things are much easier. Yesterday, our trip to the grocery was actually fun #firsttimeever !! Little girl giggled the entire time. She loved sitting next to her brother, reaching for his hat and seeing the world! Little man held her hand as we went over the bumps in the parking lot and chatted to her the whole time - which she soaked right up! They were two peas in a pod. I love when they are so sweet to each other.

I kept reading good things about water beads and thought it was time I tried them out for myself. Usually they are used in flower vases to absorb/release water. They are very fun! They are squishy and watery and remind me of fish eggs or jello. They were a little messy (they bounced and rolled all over the place) so I'm glad we played with them outside. I picked mine up at the Dollar Tree and the were perfect for scooping and pouring (two of our favorite things!)

Today I took our little lady to the doctor for a checkup and her vaccines. She was a trooper and is doing fine now.
She weighed in at 19 lbs (86th percentile) and her length measured 27.25" (78th percentile). She is a growing girl and quite healthy!

Last weekend we hit up the zoo. The weather was perfect and the kids loved it! The dinosaurs were there and that (of course) was a huge hit. The hubs even took little man for a boat ride to "dinosaur island" and it was awesome.
Little man is at a really fun age. He liked to act out and imitate a lot of the animals, especially the monkeys, kangaroos and (naturally) dinosaurs. He also liked all of the "safari trucks" that were around the park. Baby girl snoozed through a lot of it and was just happy to be there!
Here is a look back at his last few zoo trips.
