Sanaa is 7 months old today and growing fast. I keep finding shirts that don't seem to fit as well as they use to. Earlier this week I tried to put a shirt on her and discovered that it wouldn't go over her head very easily. Oh, well.
Sanaa's new favorite activity is pulling the baskets with her toys off the bottom of our coffee table. It doesn't matter what she was playing with, if she notices the baskets she tries her hardest to reach them. Unfortunately, she has done a couple of face-plants in her attempts to get the baskets. Luckily she hasn't hit the low shelf on the coffee table. Once she gets one of the baskets she then proceeds to pull out every single toy. What fun!
Today was a fairly nice day, so Sanaa and I walked to the park. Well . . . I walked and she sat in the stroller. Sanaa really enjoyed the swing and playing with the giant tic-tac-toe. I'm fairly sure that as the weather gets warmer we'll be making more trips to the park because she loves to be outside.
One thing Sanaa has started doing with more frequency is screaming at the top of her lungs. Is this just a girl thing or do all babies go through this phase? I don't remember any of the children I took care of when I was a nanny going through a screaming phase. Sanaa isn't mad when she screams, she just likes to use her vocal cords to their fullest extent. Our poor cats don't like the screaming and have been spending more time outside. I don't blame them.
