7 Months Old

Aubrey is 7 months old today, time has gone by fast. She is almost catching up to her adjusted age! She's almost got eating rice cereal down pat and we hope to start her on veggies tonight (probably carrots). She always watches us eat and makes me feel guilty that I get to eat things and she doesn't! She mimics us opening and closing her mouth when we eat. She still hasn't rolled over, although has come really close. I think she just doesn't want to, she knows it means being on her stomach, so why would she? She will immediately roll off her stomach to her back though. She doesn't mind being on her stomach quite as much as she did at first, which is good. She moves around on her play mat like crazy, doing complete circles in minutes. She has found out that if she moves enough to get her feet off the mat and onto the carpet or wood floor, she can really make some noise hitting her feet on the floor. Sneezing makes her laugh. Usually after every sneeze she giggles a little or smiles and makes a funny face. She laughs when I open her diaper and it's poopy, like she knows that I'm not happy about it. She has two little bottom-middle teeth that are almost fully in and razor sharp as I found out when putting orajel on her top gums as she chomped down on my finger nail!
All in all, she is almost always happy, smiling at every stranger in the store, sleeps well both day and around 10 hours at night. Watch out when she starts crawling and walking, I think we're going to have our hands full!

My baby's not a baby anymore

I can't believe how big Aubrey is and how far she has come. She use to fit in our hands and now she can barely fit in both my arms. As I was testing the natural light in the sunroom, I put Aubrey in a basket I use for newborns to see if she'd fit, and though she could sit in it, she has definitely outgrown it. She was a newborn for at least 3 months and we thought she'd never get bigger and now she has 2 teeth and starting to eat solid foods - time goes by so fast.

Our Sunroom/Studio: Before and During renovations

Our Sunroom when we first bought the house. The fridge is now gone and a small chest freezer is in it's place.

Here is a photo of the same end of the room, but slightly different angle. We put up bead board paneling and painted out the brick, put down carpet and added curtains. We have yet to put up the moulding on the top and bottom of the paneling and then paint everything. I put up the black curtain rod in front of the brick to use to hold my photography backdrops. We still have to hang the basket chair up as well. The other end has a couch with a sheet hanging down from the ceiling behind it to block off a small part for storage that we have yet to get rid of.
