24 Carrot Gold

Markin tried carrots on Saturday. The orange smile says it all :) She also ate them in her new high chair!

7 months!

7 months! Markin weighs 17 pounds and 1.4 ounces. She is 26 inches long.

Likes: Eating! She especially likes her veggies :) She loves playing (getting these pictures was almost impossible - it took over 70 tries! She discovered that the caterpillar makes noise and just wanted to play with him.) Remotes, phones, the computer, and cameras are also favorite "toys." She also likes playing with her friends at day care.

Dislikes: Having people mess with her hair (and, unfortunately, it's necessary because I'm not ready to cut it yet, so we need to pull it back in a little ponytail on top of her head). Markin also doesn't like it when Mommy leaves the room, making it almost impossible for Mommy to get anything done! (probably time to invest in a ring sling :)

Favorite game: "no no no" -- she loves to shake her head no! She also enjoys dropping things and having Mommy pick them up for her.

New accomplishments: sitting up!

She amazes everyone who sees her with her bright blue eyes, long hair, and happy, contented personality. We went out with friends this week and she was perfectly content being passed around and also amusing herself in her car seat with some toys. I couldn't ask for a more perfect baby. I'm so blessed!

I like to eat, eat, eat . . .

. . . apples (1.24.11) and

bananas (1.21.11)

Well, guess Markin really only likes the apples, not the bananas. She loves applesauce!

Beans, beans . . .

. . . the musical fruit.
The more you eat, the more you toot!
The more you toot, the better you feel.
So let's eat beans at every meal!
The toots are a little smelly, but the diapers haven't been too bad :)

Squishy Squashy

Time to eat! Can't wait!

Oh, what's this? This doesn't taste like my peas . . .

Okay, I guess I like it! Can I have more?
