Happy 7 months

Today my Phoebe girl is 7 months old! This week she got her first two teeth. The bottom front teeth. She won't let me look at them or feel them, but when she smiles I can see them. Poor thing had such a hard time cutting them. The teething monster is a beast! I'm told the worst is over, until the next one comes in.

This week she learned to run in her activity center. Of course it was chasing after Monkie. She adores Monkie Du. No matter what she's doing, even if she's throwing a screaming fit, when she sees Monkie she stops and grins. It's really pretty funny to see. I keep trying to catch it on video but always miss it.

Daddy thinks Phoebes is tons of fun. She is thrilled to see him when he gets home from work. They spend quite a while playing every day. She loves to be tossed in the air. She loves to pull his hair. When he gets his bass out to play, either the electric or upright, he has her undivided attention.

June? Really, already?

Where did Spring go? I have no idea. I suppose I've been so wrapped up in the cuddly sweetness that is my Phoebe girl that I didn't pay attention to anything else. She just gets sweeter and sweeter every day. She's started hugging us. It's the best! She'll snuggle her nose into my neck and pat my back. It makes me smile just to think about it.

I've been sick this week. Strep throat is not fun. Now it seems I have a sinus infection. Boo. I just want to sleep, but I can't do that with a wiggly little girl. At least I can get her to take her afternoon nap with me. Today it lasted from 1:30 to 4:00. Ahhhhh.

When we went to Grandma's last week I got the plants for my garden. Roma tomatoes, Beefsteak tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, cantaloupes, jalapenos, and salsa peppers. I need to get some bean seeds. The ones I had left from last year got wet somehow. They were all rotten. :(
