I edited this picture to have that bluish - black and white that old pictures have. I love the effect it gives the picture.

So last night marked the first time Annaliese has gotten a fever out of no where. At first i thought she might be getting sick but then it occured to me that she's going to be 7months old on Thursday and she still has no teeth. Ah, yes, teething...

I suppose my first clue would have been the drool, that combined with the fact she wasn't acting as though she felt sick. Nevertheless, i gave her baby tylenol before bed and again this morning when we woke up and i woke up periodically last night just to check on her. She was fine, sleeping like a log, most likely thanks to the tylenol.

These pictures posted today are from this morning, just a few hours ago. I decided to dress her in this dress that i got for her at my baby shower. [Probably the only dress i actually had on my registry]. I love it. But it's a 12m so up til now i figured it would be too big... Unfortnately, i think she will only wear it a couple times including today. Her chubby little arms are a bit snug in it. :(

This next picture i think is hilarious because i snapped it off right as she was blinking.

Sadly i havent posted in a while due to the fact my camera is dead and the charger is with Erich... in Alaska. So now i'm using my mom's camera. Here's one from today:

Goodness gracious, where did September come from!!?! It feels like just yesterday Annaliese was learning how to smile. The time is flying by so fast, it takes my breath away. Soon, Annaliese and I will be joining Erich in Alaska and starting our new life in The Great White North. I'm hoping that the strange day versus night ratio there will slow down my perception of the time passing.
Annaliese can now sit all by herself for any amount of time. When she can't reach something from where she is sitting, she leans over onto her belly and scoots to it. She can't quite crawl yet but it's surely only a matter of weeks now.
We tried applesauce last night with her cereal, at first she spit it out and then she got to the point she liked it. I was hoping the cereal later in the day would help her to sleep later last night. She didnt wake up this morning until 9am!
She's started to wake up in the middle of the night to eat and she'll be laying in her co-sleeper bed right next to me and she wont even cry, she just mumbles "MaMa" over and over again. Not "DaDa", not "BahBah", or "NaNa"... she says "MaMa". Part of me wants to believe she knows i'm mama. Esp, when i go to pick her up and she outstretches her arms and continues saying "MaMa". But then again, i can't be sure.. she also says "MaMa" to her rattle during tummy time.
