Marley ~ 7 months old

On Thursday June 9, Marley was 7 months old.  Marley is becoming one of the happiest babies.  Her personality has developed so much in the last month or so.  She is so sweet!  She is also able to scoot around on the floor from one side of the room to another.  I introduced Marley to a sippy cup with water the other night to see what she thought.  She didn't have the best control over it so we will continue to try at that.  She is still not sitting up, not sure why... Hopefully she will be very soon because we have pictures scheduled for the end of the month. 

If I had to guess I would say Marley weighs about 17 lbs.  She does not go to the doctor again until her 9 month check up so I will have to weigh her at home.  Marley is still wearing mostly 3-6 month clothing but is now in 9 month sleepers.  She naps 2-3 times a day and sleeps very well at night. 

One of Marley's bottom teeth has officially broken through!!! Yea!  I thought this day would never come.  She has even been in a great mood which we are all thankful for!

Thursday morning I woke up before the girls did.  They usually both get up about 9 am.  They were both sleeping so soundly I wanted to capture their sweet slumber...

good morning Marley...

Lily is doing a wonderful job potty training.  She has had very few accidents and is telling us when she needs to go potty.  She has even overcome her fear of big toilets and public toilets.  I am so very proud of her!!! 

Friday night she spent the night with Aunt TT.  She only had one poop accident during the night... She even slept in the big bed and did an excellent job.  Saturday they went to the zoo and never had an accident.  In fact this was her first time using a public toilet.  Teresa said she did great!!! 

Today she even went to the bathroom all by herself while Brian was busy.  This evening we ran to Target to get a few things.  We had Lily use the restroom before we left then she and I went again before we left Target.  I can't believe how far she has come in just a week.  We still need to get her to completely empty her bladder so she doesn't go every 5 minutes.  Baby steps I guess.
