She's mobile!

And still all sorts of adorable. Still almost no hair, but what is there is red. Intense blue eyes. She's very ticklish and we love the anticipation laughs we get from her when she knows she's about to be tickled.

She's not very coordinated, but she can get around if she doesn't think too hard about it.

She loves solids. She'll put anything in her mouth and loves all kinds of flavors. If you hold anything too close, she'll grab it and try to eat it. She loves other people's knuckles, but still has no teeth. She'll drink from a cup but doesn't really know what to do with it. It's fun to watch, that's for sure.

She still sleeps through the night almost always. She smiles a lot and loves her jumpy chair. She's extremely wiggly. It's hard to get her out of the car seat because, being so anxious to get out she tries to push her way out and you have to put the handle down or you'll bonk her head on the way out.

She loves sitting on her dad's lap watching him work on his computer while she takes a bottle and she's getting just slightly more snuggly. Really she wants to see what's going on. She'll watch intently if anything is on tv or on the movie screen (she had a better attention span at 4 months than Felix does now at 2 1/2 years).

If she's rolling around on the floor and your toes are visible she'll try to eat them.

7 1/2 months, and Amelia is so very entertaining. How happy we are to have her in our family!
