Adalyn: 7 Months

This has been my favorite month so far with Adalyn.  She has been such a joy to be with and has just blossomed into a babbling, giggling and super fun baby.  She is really starting to interact with us.  She knows her parents, friends, aunties and her loved ones far away.  She cut two teeth this month and is loving the transition to solid foods.  She's mastered sitting and I know she will be on the move soon.  She still loves to play under her play gym and can't get enough of Coco, the cat.  This month, Adi was a tutu model for a friend who is starting her own business.  Adalyn also celebrated her first Christmas and met Santa for the first time.  Here are a few pictures of our gorgeous sweet girl! 
She was great for her photo shoot!  Very cute
She has graduated to "mommy's" blocks
The foot goes in the mouth...right??
Upside down, is her new favorite position!

Adalyn's First Christmas

This was our first official Christmas in Penang.  Our last two years were spent on beaches in Australia and Thailand.  We had a lovely day and Adalyn had a great time opening her gifts.  We were able to skype with family in the States and share a few magical moments of Adi's first Christmas with them.  Eric smoked a delicious pork shoulder and I made all of the traditional sides.  Our friend Tracy joined us for dinner.  It was a great day!  Enjoy a few pictures from our tropical Christmas.
Adi met Santa at the annual Christmas Treat at the Hostie.  She was all smiles
