letters to julia: month seven

dear julia,

i say this every month, but i can't believe how much you've grown.
you're now seven months old.

you are mobile.
you aren't quite crawling
(even though you want to)
but you roll everywhere.
you lay on your belly and spin in circles.

you're almost clapping.
you have a cool new dance move where you put your hands together
and move them up and down.

you've eaten a lot of new foods and you like everything except peas.
(nobody can blame you.)

your two bottom teeth are coming in and that makes you pretty uncomfortable sometimes.

we have been swimming in pools, lakes, and the ocean this month.
you like to splash but you don't like waves.

we also watched fireworks this month,
and you were enthralled by them.

the other day we drove eleven hours in the car to raleigh, north carolina
and you were so well behaved. we couldn't believe it.
you hardly cried at all.

you got your first taste of sand and saltwater.

 we are so blessed to have you, julia. we love you so much.
