Anna Grace 7 months old

It's hard to believe this sweet thing is 7 months old!  She has continued to be the happiest baby I've ever met.  Easy going, sweet, easy to please, happy, loves to smile and a little cuddle bug.  It doesn't get any better than this!  

This picture cracks me up!  She has the best little personality.  
I got this guys!

Ready for church.

Weight:  16 ish pounds 
Eating:  Little lady is still a great eater.  She eats food twice a day (once at school around lunch and dinner at home).  Over the last month she tried avacado, carrots, banana and sweet potatoes.  As of now, they are all her favorite. :)    
Development:  Baby girl got her first tooth right around her 7 month birthday!  I was shocked when I felt it coming in.  Her big brother was a year and a half before he got a tooth, so I wasn't expecting teeth so soon.  
Other:  Anna Grace celebrated her first Easter in Midland.  She met the Easter bunny and "went" on her first Easter egg hunt.  Once again, she did a great job on the flight to and from Midland.    
Things She Loves:  She fell in love with a set of play keys at my parents house.  This little lady will chew on anything and everything....these keys are the new favorite.  Sitting in her walker is also a new favorite thing.  Until now, she wasn't able to hold her head up enough to sit in these kinds of things.  I think she is happy to have some play time upright.  :)  
Things She Hates:  Tummy time is still at the top of this list.  
From The Doctor:  This is still a sensitive topic.  Month 6 to 7 was probably one of the most emotional months of my life.  One day I'll expand on this topic.  Over the last month baby girl was seen by a neurologist, had a MRI done, saw an ophthalmologist, got referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist and a neuro surgeon, she had an EEG done, urine tests done and had to have blood drawn twice (one of which this mama had to poke her for.....INSERT tears and lots of crying here).  Right before she turned 7 months old she had her physical therapy evaluation.  They confirmed her torticollis and recommended she be seen once a week for physical therapy.  To say we've been busy is an understatement!  With two parents working full time and running all over Houston for these appointments + just the normal life with our kiddos, we have been tired/emotionally drained, but feel so happy and blessed to have these two sweet angels in our life.         

Seriously.  It doesn't get any cuter than this.  She makes getting an EEG look adorable!

A sweet friend sent this to me during these crazy days:
Do not be discouraged by the fact that many of your prayers are yet unanswered.  Instead of letting difficulties draw you into worrying, try to view them as setting the scene for My glorious intervention.  Keep your eyes and your mind open to all that I am doing in your life.  

This baby girl is better than I could have ever imagined.  Before she was here it was hard to believe we could love another child as much as William.  I knew we would, but it was hard to wrap my head around.  Now she is here, and we ALL adore her.
