Little Miss Charleigh

So as promised here is an update on the baybo....Charleigh is 7.5 months old and we are loving every minute!!! She is doing so many things since the last time I posted about her. She can army crawl like no one's business. She gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth but then when she wants to move its on her belly or not at all. She is super fast, no more leaving her in the family room and walking away!
She is still sleeping through the night, though she has become such a creature of habit and any straying from her routine will cause her to have some nights where she wakes up at 2am. She doesn't want to eat or play, just wakes up, cries, we give her back her pacifier and she goes back to sleep. But normally she goes down around 6pm and sleeps till 7am. She still takes two naps a day, which is nice when I've worked the night before.
She is eating solids three times a day in addition to her bottles. She loves to eat whatever I'm eating so if I think she won't choke on it I usually give it to her. So far the only thing she has not liked was grits from the waffle house!
She "talks" all the time. Loves Nathan way more than me, I mean seriously, if he comes in the room she can't focus on anything or anyone but him. She will often start crying if he doesn't come give her a kiss or pick her up. She can be playing contently in her exersaucer and he walks in and she starts throwing a fit till he gives her attention! Its pretty cute.
She hates her car seat or long car trips...should be interesting when we drive home for Thanksgiving.
Doesn't seem to have any stranger anxiety at all, however, doesn't like being left alone in a room.
Unfortunately she loves tv. I mean the kid would be content to sit with me on the couch and watch Real Houseswives of New Jersey all day long.
She loves kisses and tries really hard to give them to you, however be careful as it usually involves her tongue!!
Everything she sees she tries to put in her mouth-super gross when you touch a slobber soaked piece of clothing!
And last but not least you can feel two bumps where her bottom teeth are coming in. Have been able to for awhile, yet they are STILL not poked through!!! AAAAHHHH!!!! However it doesn't seem to be bothering her at all.

Oh and her latest nicknames since we still never seem to call her just Charleigh are:
Charleigh Bean

Don't know how much she weighs but a month ago she weighed 15lbs. So we will get another weight check at her 9month appt.
Thats about it! We love our little girl!!! Can't imagine our life before she was here!
