At 7 months Eliana, 

...has cut her FIRST tooth! The bottom left tooth in the front. The tooth actually broke the gums a couple days after she "officially" turned 7 months.
...crawls all over the place. Eliana actually does the "bear" crawl. 
...can pull herself to standing position.

...can stand holding on to things with only one hand. 
...she's learning to cruise around toys and furniture while standing.
...can return to sitting position from laying or standing. 
...says, "mama."
...reaches out for me to hold her.

...not sure what color her eyes want to be. Some days they are blue other green or grey.
...her hair is a light reddish-brown, with the cutest little curl in the front. That section of hair has been curling like that since she was born. We comb and brush it and after a bit, will return back to a cute curl.

...still nursing pretty exclusively. We keep trying solids with her, but she still struggles with swallowing them. She gags and ends up spitting them back up.
...when she isn't playing on the floor, she spends the rest of her time in the baby carrier on my chest. I don't complain, this phase won't last long.

...she has a billion of the cutest faces! Amazing that a baby can smile so many different ways.

She's growing up too fast...I'm so blessed that I can be a full-time mommy and not miss any of these moments with my kiddos.

Happy 7 months, lil' miss!!
