Umm, there aren’t any official 7 month pictures with this post because I’M A SLACKER MOM and I haven’t taken them yet! OR the 6 month pictures. Waaah! I’m having a little trouble balancing the fact that I have another blog now, too, and this one has taken a serious hit. I keep wanting to catch up – but then feel overwhelmed by how many things I should write about and all the pictures that should be posted. So this is an attempt to overcome the paralysis and not continue to get more and more behind!
Remy is 7 months – and she’s such a delight. Anyone who spends a few minutes in her presence comments on her smile. She’s on a second round of antibiotics for a stubborn double ear infection, and even when she feels lousy she musters up a grin for her dad when he comes into the room! A couple of weeks ago we went out to eat with both girls, and after dinner Remy was getting loud at the table so I headed out with her while Jay and Laine waited to finish paying. We had gone early, and so the restaurant was filling up and there was a crowd of people waiting for tables near the entrance. I was squeezing by a clump of people with my overloaded diaper bag, and Remy was on my hip and kind of dangling her head backwards to see everyone. I heard someone exclaim, “Look at that baby!” and glanced down at her to see that as we were brushing by some people sitting on a bench she was grinning right into their faces. It is so quintessential Remy that even in that millisecond interaction her grin was enough to warrant a comment from a stranger! :o)
Rem graduated to riding in the actual cart!
She wore the same outfit that Laine did the first time she rode in a cart.
She’s doing lots of baby planks and while she doesn’t have forward motion yet, she can make a lot of progress around a room scooting backwards and pivoting.
Laine, on the other hand, mostly moves by dancing. Also, “finning” (spinning). The past tense of this word is “fan”. Ballet is her usual genre, but she dabbles in hip-hop and krumping. Please note her ballet slippers (aka bunny slippers) and the pink bow in the center of her forehead like Angelina.
We have had crazy snow (y’know, for Raleigh and the South) – Laine hasn’t been to school in over 2 weeks because of snow days! There are more pictures of Remy being cute in the snow than Laine because Laine doesn’t stand still long enough to be photographed. :o) Not when there’s snow to eat, man! (The first few are from when Nonnie was here with the girls, and the others are from our big snow last week!)
Clearly the fact that she’s been tied to a chair with the dog’s towel BY HER NONNIE didn’t upset Rem in the least!
I love those girls and their smiles.
Do you wanna build a snowman?
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes…
