Meera turns 7 months old today! This past month she's started to sit up pretty well -- she can sit on her own but still plops over after a minute or so (and then laughs at herself when she does). She's started chewing on teething biscuits (which she loves). She experienced her first big party in her own house (the Haiti Christmas Party). And she took her fourth trip to New Hampshire... this time for her first Christmas (a beautiful white Christmas to remember). She survived the 10 hour car ride (10 hours each way) and did really well (especially for a 6 month old!) during this 7 night Christmas trip. Meera continues to be a happy, happy, happy baby who rarely fusses and rarely cries. She laughs easily and often (especially when tickled!). She's smiling more than she's not. And she still sleeps like a champ. Her favorite foods are "rice and beans" (! --rice cereal mixed with pureed green beans); sweet potatoes; and Yo Baby Simple Plain Yogurt. This month she spent lots of time in the baby backpack on Braydon's back. She's had her first taste of winter weather and tends to squeal and screech with delight when the cold winds blow on her face. Meera is a baby who loves loves loves toys. She's entertained for hours playing by herself with all her little baby things. But by far her favorite thing to do is to watch her brothers and -- even better -- receive their attention and affection. Meera Grace is a miraculously ridiculously unbelievably easy happy mellow happy-go-lucky baby who delights us everyday by simply just being. We can't believe we've passed the 6-month-mark with her. She's growing so fast; we are trying to savor each and every day with this precious baby bundle.
