Presley has blossomed in the short four weeks between her being
6 months old to now 7 months young.
Our Sweet Pea rolls everywhere, sits unsupported, and is beginning
to get herself up on all fours. She smiles, giggles, and babbles almost
constantly. She prefers her Mama's milk over anything, but she now
will drink water and milk out of sippy cup, and eat "real" people food.
She picks up treats off her tray, and holds a Mum Mum or Graham
Cracker up to her mouth to munch on. She loves to jump for hours in her
bouncer, and her eyes become glued to the television no matter what
show is on. She recognizes her family, and those people who she is
around a lot by welcoming them with smiles and coos. She will reach
her arms out to be held by a new person, and I swear she has waved
a couple of times at me. She LOVES her sister more then anything in
the world, and laughs and smiles whenever Giulietta plays with her.
Presley is a fan of music, especially Elvis, and you can hear her singing
along in the backseat of the car. She recognizes her name, and sometimes
the numerous nicknames we have given her (Pella, P, Sister, Sissy, Sweet
Pea, and P-diddle). Her hair is as red as the Crayola crayon in G's coloring box,
her eyes as blue as the ocean on a clear day, her smile as wide and open as her heart,
and her personality as wild as a firecracker on the 4th of July.
It's bittersweet to think that we are closer to her 1st birthday,
then the day she was born.
