Seven Months!

{monthly onesie stickers from Clementine Baby}

How can it be?  Our girl is seven months old!  As of Monday, anyway.

She's sitting unassisted now and transitions from bottom to tummy without a face plant (most of the time).  She can hold herself up on her hands and knees.  She scoots and rolls wherever she wants.  She's eating baby food for three meals a day.  And she is constantly smiling.

Are you keeping up?  I barely am!

Someone once told me that with children the minutes can seem to drag on but the years fly by.  This couldn't be more true!

We definitely have our challenging days with Miss K, and on those days bedtime can't come soon enough.  But, really... where have the last seven months gone?

We had our second visit with K's birth family over this past weekend (which I will write more about in another post), and we reminisced about what was happening at this time one year ago.

On August ninth last year, Nate and I received a late night call from one of the birth mother counselors at our agency.  She wanted to tell us that J had looked at our profile book and wanted to meet us!

This year on August ninth we traveled to Columbus for the first day of our two day visit.  It was totally a coincidence, but made the day that much more special.

On August eleventh last year, we met and were officially matched with J.  This year Miss K is turning seven months old on that exact day.

Oh, how life changes in the blink of an eye...
