Bliss Mabry Poe: Seven months

Bliss 7 months 040
My sweet girly girl,
How do I love you? Let me count the gazillion ways!!! You’re the most precious little girl on the planet and make our days so very fun. Is it crazy to say that I miss you while you sleep? I’m sure it is, but I just can’t help it.

This month was full of firsts and fun. You were the most hilarious Princess Leia for your first Halloween and got quite the attention with your “wig.” Your brothers were so proud that you went right along with their costumes. Once again, you happily attended all of your brother’s events…Scarecrow parade, Halloween parties, birthday parties, golf, soccer, Thanksgiving feasts and more. You saw your first movie at the theatre…Big Hero 6. You loved the “short” before the movie (that actually had Kia/Krozby in it) and then fell asleep for most of the movie. Holding you wasn't a problem at all! Bliss 7 months 047

On top of all of that, you got to celebrate with us as your Biggest Bubba made the decision to be baptized. I love that you have him to help guide you as you grow and show you the joy that only Jesus can bring. What a precious example he already is to you of Christ’s love.

Not only were you around a lot of family for Quinn’s baptism, but we also, unexpectedly, were around a bunch of family when Pawpaw was in the hospital. What was a scary time turned into thanksgiving as we got good news from his tests. But, since he was there, we got to be with cousins and Mimi got to stay with us for 6 days. It was so fun being spoiled by her for so long…she loved on you like crazy! Having a great-grandmother is a rare and precious thing! Bliss 7 months 052

In your seventh month, we had your 6 month check up. You're still tiny and were such a big girl getting your shots. Nash was there to love on you as soon as they were over. Sadly, your flu shot made you a little puny for a few days. It was hard to see you not smiley. We’re glad it’s a thing of the past. Bliss 7 months 060

As far as personality goes, you’ve got plenty to go around. You are quite the talker…saying “dada” and “bubba” all of the time. You may not know what you’re saying, but they sure think you do. You love to YELLLLL, especially when you’re eating in your high chair. Nursing is still the only food you prefer…but you’re starting to be ok with sweet potatoes. Other than that, you gag or spit it out. We’ll keep trying. Bliss 7 months 067Bliss 7 months 068
You’re sitting up really well now and have even started rocking on your hands and knees a little bit. You have brothers to keep up with. Slow down, baby girl!

You would think that you’d be sleeping better with all of that busyness, but you’re still not consistently sleeping all night. You’re up once or twice most nights. You just want a little food and a lot of snuggles…then it’s back in your bed. You usually take one good 2-3 hour nap and then are on the go for your other naps. We’re pretty flexible.

I adore you, sweet girl. Your dimple, your giggle, your big bows, the way you love to suck on your toes, your sparkly eyes, the excitement when I walk in the room, you chubby thighs, you sweet, little yawns and so much more. May time slow down just a little…and may I savor every precious moment.

“all That We Behold is Full of Blessings.” –William wordsworth

What a picture perfect Thanksgiving…Bliss’ First!  This year, the day before Turkey Day, we took the scenic drive to EAAASSSTTT Texas to celebrate Thanksgiving at Matt’s sister’s house. Bethanie and Derin live on the lake of a beautiful State Park. Our kids were in heaven…perfect weather and all of the space in the world to run and play and imagine and be kids! I truly enjoyed watching them make up games and laugh together. On top of that, it was so great being with family and eating lots of yummy food too! I’d say it was a Thanksgiving that top most…and I hope for many more just like it. IMG_4616IMG_4621
