K turned seven months on Tuesday.

Seven months.

I still can’t believe it’s only been seven months.

She was just this teeny tiny little baby.  Now, she’s thinks she’s full-fledged toddler.

She’s full-on crawling on all fours instead of the army crawl.  She loves to pull herself up to her knees and eventually up to standing on whatever she thinks can support her weight.  The night before she turned seven months, she figured out how to push herself up to sitting from being in the crawling position.

It’s just all too much for me to handle..

And she is seriously all over the place.  With M, we had a big mat and blanket on the ground for her to crawl on.

We’ve pretty much given up on that with K.  The minute she was mobile, she took every opportunity to move off that mat and blanket.  It became too much of a hassle and a tripping hazard to keep it on the floor, so we packed it up.  She crawls all over the carpet now.

She’s also learned that there is life outside the living room.  She figured out that she can crawl herself into the play/craft area all on her own.  She loves to follow her sister when M starts playing in that area.

There is no stopping little K.

I literally spend an hours on the ground with her in the morning just crawling around with her and making sure that she doesn’t try to pull herself up onto something that isn’t stable enough.  But believe me, she’s determined.  Sometimes, she’ll crawl over the item she knocked down to get to what is sturdier in order to pull herself up.

My girl knows what she wants.

Her sixth month was just filled with milestones.  I’m so proud of her.

I wonder what fun her seventh month is going to bring…

K is almost seven months old… can you believe it?

This sixth month has been such a whirlwind of milestones, I can barely keep up!

She’s been doing the army crawl since she was 5 months old, and she’s starting to master crawling with her belly off the floor.  It’s amazing watching her trying to figure it all out.

She’s starting to figure out how to sit down from being in a crawling position.  It’s funny how she seems so surprised when she actually pulls herself up to sitting.  She’ll look at me as if she was saying, “How did I do that?!”

Her latest obsession is trying to pull herself up to standing using whatever she can get her hands on.

She’s an expert at pulling herself up to kneeling.  She can get that done in an instant.  She loves pulling herself up to kneeling using my lap.  Then, she grabs my hands and together we pull her up to standing!

She also tries to pull herself up using various toys.  She hasn’t quite understood that some toys are more stable than others.  I’m constantly hovering over her to make sure she doesn’t knock a toy down and hurt herself in the process.

In her playpen, she can use the mesh to push herself up to a kneeling position.  She feel stuck when she can’t move her knees closer to pull up to standing and she starts to whine in frustration.  Sometimes, I help her, so she can learn the motions of pulling herself up.  Other times, I leave her alone.  I want her to figure it out on her own.  Sometimes, she gives up and lies back down.  Sometimes, she tries and tries until the frustration gets to be too much and starts to cry.  I know she’s going to get it.  She’s getting stronger and smarter and I know it’s all going to click one day.

It’s non-stop with her.  She constantly wants to be on the floor to try do so many different things.  I feel like I don’t do anything all day but crawl all over the floor with her.  She only wants to carry and cuddle when she wants a bottle and wants to sleep.

She’s an active little girl with such a determined spirit.  She will crawl over my leg, or her own sister, to get to where she wants to go.

I love watching her learn about the world around her.
