Yesterday, after Chloe's nap, I noticed her lower gum was super swollen and Lo and Behold! I toofer just ready to pop through! Today it was even more visable so I do believe she will have her first tooth come morning, or at the very latest by bedtime tomorrow.
Case in point #1: I was running Chloe's bath water and she was standing at the side of the tub watching. I looked over and saw her hike up her leg trying to get in by herself! When she realized it wasn't gonna happen, she started bouncing up and down like a crazy person! I was a little late with the camera, but she did do the leg hike again. We're gonna have to watch her like a hawk! Case in point #2: Um. She is just over 7 months old and is pulling up and cruising! I had a different video to post to show her cruising a bit better but it was rather long and kind of boring. And if her mother thinks it's kind of boring, pretty sure you would agree. So, here's a short and sweet, albiet less impressive one:
Tucker also sat, crawled, and pulled up early but then he stopped and finally started to walk just past the 15 month mark. It will be interesting to see if Chloe does the same or if she will be an early walker. My bet is she will be early because she's already cruising, which Tucker never had an interest in trying.
My pretty girl is now 7 months old! Chloe is crawling all over the place and pulling to a stand. She is still smiley and she loves to be tickled. We have transitioned her to her own crib now but she still ends up in bed with Momma in the wee hours of the morning, which I happen to love. There is just nothing like snuggling with a baby with their little bodies all warm in the footie sleepers!
She is fluent in Baa sounds, although she prefers the screech and scream. I have been saying this for a while now, but she is definitely going to be our Wild Child/Adventurous Girl. I can tell already that she will be the one to accompany Ryan on the excursions Tucker and I are too chicken to participate in (i.e. scuba diving, rock wall climbing, sky diving, etc.).
Her hair has the same coppery tint that Tucker's does! Two redheads on my hands! Her eyes are just gorgeous, a perfect mixture of blue, brown, and green. Multi-colored eyes are the best! I guess the technical term would be hazel? Her ears. Oh, her ears could have a post all their own! I love her ears! They are big and they stick out and they are almost the cutest thing I've ever seen! I like to say she sat so early because her ears helped balance her. :)
She loves music. I love the song "Say Hey" (which I have declared to be our Spring/Summer anthem) and when I hold her and dance to it, she kicks her legs and flails her arms like a mad woman! I am trying to get a cute video of it so I can share her adorable-ness. I am so in love with my girl!
