Willa at 7 Months

Willa turned 7 months old and within a week started sitting up perfectly and cut her first two teeth! She's content to just sit and play, at least for a while. She still prefers her mama to hold her :)
She wakes up 1-2 times a night. I haven't been super vigilant with her sleep training because we're rarely getting her down at the same time every night. She takes 2-3 naps a day- usually one in the morning about an hour after she wakes up and then another around 12 or 1 with Jude. That nap is normally 2 hours or more. If there's time she'll take a quick nap before dinner so she can last til 730 for bed.
Willa loves baths and absolutely loves swimming in the pool.
She smiles at Jude whenever he smiles at her.
Even after covering her in sunscreen she's managed to get a pretty nice tan.
She loves her pacifier and uses it to sleep.
She loves real food and stares at us whenever we eat.
She's tried most vegetables and fruits now as well as beans, oats and yogurt.
She needs about 3 hours between naps now and pretty much refuses to nap in my arms at church.
She's pretty ticklish but it takes a lot of work to get her to laugh hard.
She's started taking toys out of a basket and has a lot of fun with that process.
She loves to pull hair.
It's so different having a baby that is so attached to me. I thought I would not like it very much since Jude was so easy going and went to anyone and was content for long periods of time. Willa will go to anyone but is always scanning the room for me. I have to say that I actually don't mind her attachment to me. Sometimes it's a little draining but I love that she loves me so much. She also still won't take a bottle so if we get the opportunity for a date we wait til she's in bed to go. Willa has definitely taught us patience and that we have so much love to share with both her and Jude.
