this face is my FAVORITE
My bitty Brighty girl is growing so much! I love it and hate it at the same time. I am in love with her personality and everything she is becoming. I always imagine her as like this silent genius hahah (I'm sure EVERYONE thinks this about their kids) She obviously can't talk but I always see the gears moving around as she tries new things and works hard to achieve new milestones. I'm 2 weeks late but here is B's 7 month update!
Brighton says mama + dada now! It was funny because we have been trying to get her to say dada for so long and as soon as we got to Iowa, she won't STOP saying it!! hahah so Jason has never heard her say it in person but I have filmed it our been able to catch her saying it on facetime so he has at least heard it for himself!
She has 2 teeth!!! I am totally a believer in those amber teething necklaces! She had 2 nights of waking up a few extra times and then a tooth popped up. A week later, another one popped up and I only noticed because I kept checking for teeth! She was never super fussy or sad or anything and I am sure the amber necklace she wears helped a lot! If you haven't heard of them, look it up!!! It helps with drooling, too. You just have to make sure it's real amber (aka don't order from amazon. I got mine on etsy!)
She started trying to crawl!!! Another Iowa accomplishment ha! She kept doing downward dog for a few days and then started lifting her body and moving her feet trying to go somewhere. She hasn't figured it out yet, but I would guess she will soon. It's so cute to see her determined and try new things and accomplish these milestones.
She started having some stranger anxiety. It isn't too drastic or anything but she's started to reach for me when someone else is holding her or gets sad if I let people hold her sometimes. I kind of love it because SHE WANTS ME! Like, Brighton, I want you 100000% of the day and you're starting to show you want ME! yay!!!
She took her first plane ride this month! She did really well on the plane which was great for me and all the passengers. She didn't sleep for very long but once we got to Iowa, she took a longggg 3 hour nap to make up for it. She has now been to Arizona, California, and Iowa!
Oh one more thing- I forgot to do a 6 month update but she got her ears pierced the week that she turned 6 months! I had to wait until I was 12 to get mine pierced and I always told myself I wouldn't make my daughter wait. I think they're so cute and she did amazing!!! She never touches them and it was the perfect age to get them done for her :)
I love you I love you I LOVE YOU BRIGHTON!!
