Seven Month Joy

This past month has been so full of joy and I can barely believe a full month has gone by. I wish time would slow down. Sam and Rachel are changing so fast. It seems like every few days they are showing us something new. Here are some highlights:
Rachel can now manipulate her soother so she finds the right side to put in her mouth. It's adorable to watch her do this at night when her eyes are closed and she's mostly asleep.
Sam has a new funny face/noise. He scrunches up his nose, squints his eyes and purses his lips, then breathes quickly through his nose. It's hilarious to watch and the more we laugh, the more he does it.
Both can nearly sit unaided.
Sam is now doing bbbb sounds.
Rachel's sounds are more and more like singing all the time and they are getting higher in pitch all the time.
Both can roll around and can pull their knees underneath them but so far there is only backward movement by Sam and rocking movement by Rachel.
Rachel loves to splash in her bath and she's soaking the bathroom and Daddy with water every night.
Sam is sleeping through the night!! He's done this twice now, 9 full hours! Whooohooo!
Both are loving seeing the world upside down and often lean back to do so when you're sitting with them.
Both love the cat and can often get distracted from their other needs or activities when she's in the room.
Both love food some days and hate it the next. Sigh!
Sam likes to grab my head and give great big sloppy kisses.
Rachel is nearly holding her bottle herself.
They are babbling with each other more and more, noticing and laughing at each other, wanting to hold hands and pull at the other whenever they are within reach.
I love this! I love them! More and more all the time.
