Mmmmom, mom, mom, mom

Finally, enough of the Da, da, da, da, das! Hannah has finally decided to bless me with some mom, mom, moms :) Today she's been doing it all day and it just makes me smile every time I hear it! I get so excited that she does it again just to see me smile and clap! Then of course I smile and clap more.

As for other less important :p Hannah updates, Hannah passed her hearing test with flying colors. She won't have to have another one until she turns a year old unless we start to notice any problems. From here on out she has them every six months until she's 3 years old and then we are completely in the clear.

She continues to eat like a champ and really seems to like absolutely everything we put in front of her. Nothing new shakes this kid. She's even warmed up to the barley cereal. We have noticed that peaches seem to bother her digestive tract a bit, but she likes the taste of them ok. Prunes also may be having a similar effect, but at the moment it's a bit too soon to tell.

Yesterday Hannah had her 7 month pictures done and her regular photographer was sick so we had a new guy. Hannah, who had been being absolutely adorable, took one look at this guy and decided that there was something she didn't like about him and began to scream! This theme continued throughout the entire session! I had to work really hard at distracting her so that she would not notice he was looking at her when he took the pictures because if she saw him even looking at her she would go into another round of screams complete with tears and a horribly runny nose :( There weren't very many cute ones this time so it made it very easy to choose which ones to order. I guess I can be thankful for that!

On Wednesday my new mommy-do was completed so now I can finally post that picture you all have been asking for. The reason I was waiting is because I decided to get a perm done too. I haven't had one of those since 6th grade so I was a bit nervous, but it turned out pretty good. I'm still getting used to it and I haven't been able to wash it yet so I'll let you know what I really think about it in the next post. I was a bit worried that Hannah might get a bit scared by it because I read in on of my books that babies at this age don't like big changes to their home or parents and this was a pretty big change. Hannah, however, handled it like a pro and was as flexible as ever.

Hannah's newest trick (of which I am NOT pleased) is throwing tantrums. She's decided that since she's wearing 18 month clothes she can start throwing tantrums like a toddler too. She does it when I wash her face after she's done eating, when I don't give her food fast enough, when I make her sit down after she has been standing for awhile, or when I sit her on the floor after I've been carrying her. So, I've started really working on teaching her the word "NO" and giving her a look that lets her know I am not pleased as well as ignoring her continued behavior until she calms down. Right now there hasn't been any progress, but I have a feeling this could be a VERY long battle.

I finally got around to uploading some more of Hannah's videos. To see the video just click on the link and enjoy.

The first video is just of Hannah talking and rolling around on the floor. Not too exciting, but for those of you who don't get to see her you can at least see how her personality is developing.

Hannah loves to get into the clean clothes while I fold laundry and she thinks it's funny to steal something I've already folded. She gets a really proud look on her face when she thinks she's gotten away with something!

Hannah frequently rolls herself into a corner and can't get out. She thinks it's funny for awhile, but then gets hostile if you don't rescue her when she's done playing.

Hannah currently obsessed with the dog beds. She loves to flip them over, kick them, or roll underneath them.
