Seven months old!

Dear Goosey,
You are SEVEN months old now! And on your 7 month birthday, you pulled yourself up to standing! Well, sort of standing, more like leaning while your body was planked. You were so happy, you love to stand any way possible. I'm still hoping you'll crawl before you walk and you are showing signs of maybe being interested in moving while prone, but every chance you get it's STAND.  On your belly and sitting you rotate which way you're facing and seem to scoot a bit. Not very far and it doesn't seem intentional, but you are often not *exactly* where you were a few minutes before.

You love to eat and insist on trying whatever we are eating. It's a very specific grab and pull from my hands to your mouth. Though if I'm holding an envelope or a glass of water, you want to try that, too. You love sweet potatoes, broccoli, ground beef, banana, banana bread and apple. You are not very impressed with hummus, mashed potatoes or chicken, though chicken sausage is pretty great. You have an amazing knack for taking the teensiest bit of food and making the hugest mess possible. I swear it's not possible for you to have swallowed any food with how much is on your face, clothes, the table and the floor, but it does show up at the other end...

Though we read books a lot, you are not really into them. Even the ones with crinkly sound effects or flaps to nibble, you'd much rather be playing with cups or water bottles or blocks. You like music and will sometimes sing along when other people are singing to you. And, I swear you say "hi!" sometimes...
