Miss Marilyn is SEVEN Months Old!

Marley is Seven Months Old!



How old are you?
Seven months old (but wearing 12-18 month clothes!)

Do you have any nicknames?
I respond to Marley and Marilyn now!

What makes you happy?
Being tickled.  Funny conversations. Sometimes Peek-a-Boo Dolly.

What makes you sad?
Rice cereal.  It's so gross. Who would eat something so bland?!  Last week Mom tried to mix it in with some peaches.  She almost fooled me.  But I figured it out.  And then I made myself throw up.  Bet she doesn't try that again.

What is your favorite animal?
My golden puppy.  He has floppy ears that I like to hold onto when I wave him around.

What is your favorite thing to eat?
Peaches with carrots hidden inside.  And pears.  I could always eat pears.

What is your favorite thing to do?
Roll over in my crib at night. Fastest way to get Mom and Dad to run in and play with me!

What is your favorite song?
Ducks Like Rain by Raffi.  Mom and Dad are pretty sure 'duck' is going to be my first word.  I love ducks.

What is your favorite TV show?
Still Clifford.  We watch Clifford lots.  Mom says it's ok to watch an episode or two a day since I'm learning such great lessons.

What are you really good at?
Laughing.  I'm such a cutie pie.


What is your favorite movie?
Do World Cup games count? Because we've been watching a lot of those around here.

What is your favorite color?
Polka dots should really be a color. Stripes too. They don't get enough attention as just patterns.

Who is your best friend?
Uncle Gordie.  He's finally home and willing to make animal noises with me! We've been making lots of dolphin noises together.

What do you and mom do together?
We have tea parties.  We stole the tea set from Grandma's house and have many tea parties each day.  I always eat the chocolate cakes.  Mom gets the yellow cake--YU-ck.

What do you and dad do together?
We keep playing the paci game at night.  He puts me in my crib and puts my paci in my mouth.  Then I pull it out and hand it back to him.  Over and over and over again.

What is your favorite sport?
Soccer. World Cup--duh!

Where is your favorite place to go?
Anywhere there is a piece of technology I'm not supposed to have.  I try to get my little hands on as many cell phones and remotes as possible.  They look like good teething toys.

What is your favorite book?
Clifford!

What do you think about before you fall asleep?
How to escape.  So far I've figured out that I can shove my legs and arms through these crib slats.  I'm still trying to figure out how to stuff my body through those tiny crib slats.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
An etiquette teacher.  I love having tea parties, eating tiny cakes and drinking out of big girl glasses.  I'm still working on the art of sharing my chocolate cake and not dumping water down the front of myself, but I consider those things to be minor details I can iron out once I start my career.

 
Month 7 is over which means it is officially SUMMER! I have been waiting for this month since she was born so we can spend all our time together.  This month she has become so much more independent.  She continues to love baby food and will even eat some on her less favorite foods as long as they are hidden inside something delicious like peaches! She's babbling sounds that sound much more like words and shes starting to rock on her tummy like she's getting ready to crawl.  Oo yeah...and she got a third tooth.  I discovered it in the bath tub the other night so we're not exactly sure when she actually got it---working parents fail! Marley continues to be happy and healthy and we can't wait to see what this next month brings!

Alright mom...enough with the interview!

Miss Marilyn is SIX Months Old!

Marley is Six Months Old!

How old are you?
Six months old (but wearing 12 month clothes!)

Do you have any nicknames?
They've been using my full name a lot this month.  Mom says I need to know my real name instead of all these nicknames.

What makes you happy?
Quack, quack, quacks. Being tickled. Snuggles.

What makes you sad?
Still strangers. I use my big, crocodile sized tears to get back to Mom or Dad.  Also, being left to play by myself for too long.  A few quick coughs usually gets them paying attention again.

What is your favorite animal?
My new birdie from Easter.  He's so soft.

What is your favorite thing to eat?
Still pears and sweet potatoes.  Although I would really like something to bite into.  Enough of these purees.

What is your favorite thing to do?
Sit up by myself.  I have a much better view of the world from up here!

What is your favorite song?
All the top 40 hits Mom listens to in the car.  Sometimes they put me right to sleep...

What is your favorite TV show?
Still Clifford.  Such a cutie pie.

What are you really good at?
Sitting up by myself.  My balance has gotten better although I'm still a little bit of a weeble wobble.

What is your favorite movie?
Monster's University.  Those monsters are so funny.

What is your favorite color?
Pink, pink, and more pink!

Who is your best friend?
Daddy.  He's my go to person this month.

What do you and mom do together?
We swing.  I love the swing so much and Mom will push me for hours.  Sometimes she tries to eat my toes and I giggle and squeal.

What do you and dad do together?
He gives me kisses and I laugh hysterically.  He's so funny and he always tries to eat me! I even got a rash on my face from his scratchy beard.  Mom was pretty upset.  Dad kept kissing me.  Mom was still pretty upset.

What is your favorite sport?
Football.  I'm great at using all my strength to knock things out of the way.

Where is your favorite place to go?
Outside.  It's so peaceful!

What is your favorite book?
The Froggy books.

What do you think about before you fall asleep?
Snacks.  Or playing games.  This month I've been trying to eat my sleep sack or playing the paci game with Daddy.  Both are pretty satisfying.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A drama major.  This month I mastered the art of throwing tantrums at the drop of a hat.  I can cry whenever and convince any poor soul that my parent's are doing something awful to me.  Turns out I like to be in control just as much as Mom and Dad do..... 

 
Month 6 flew by! We kept settling into the house, raced through Spring semester, and celebrated my parent's 30th wedding anniversary.  Our little munchkin is growing up so fast! At her last doctor's appointment, she was almost 20 pounds!  She's looking older and older each day and wants to be just as independent.  She still loves going to Grandma and Grandpa's house each morning and reaches for my mom as soon as we walk in the door.  No new teeth this month, although the top four are just sitting waiting to come through.  She's still a wonderful sleeper and eater.  Her laughter is contagious and her squeals radiate through the house.  We're still fighting some stranger danger and our little one loves her down time.  Can't wait to see what the next month brings!
