Almost Crawling

It's so funny, when you have a baby it seems like you sit around and wait for them to do something new and every little thing you kind of freak out and it's like some sort of weird celebration because the kid looks at you or throws up on you or something. Then all of the sudden they start doing so many new things that you can't even keep up with it.
Ellery has got several new things right now. They are all exciting for me, but I guess the most exciting is that she's almost crawling. She's gotten to the point where she can get up on her knees and rock back and forth. I hear that it's only a matter of time until they are actually going somewhere from that point. But usually after a few rocks she gets frustrated and throws herself onto the floor and starts licking the carpet. My child is a licker- and a growler. She acts like she's part dog or something. And I've turned into a total germaphobe since having her so anytime she starts with the licking, I get so freaked out, it's not even funny.

Ellery's next new thing will probably be much debated since she's only 7 months old, but I swear that she's saying "Mama". I don't mean like jabbering either, she does do that and I hear stuff like "mamamamampppppbbbbbabababa" along with a lot of spitting, but this seems way more directed at me. If I walk through the room I hear "Mama! Mama!" And she says it as she's reaching for me. So if she doesn't realize what she's saying that's an awful big coincidence.

More new things- dancing, with help of course, but she's definitely going to be a music lover. We get to hear lots of squeals and see lots of bouncing when music comes on. Kissing- oh man, I don't know if she's kissing or trying to eat my head! No, I know that she's kissing but she will grab me by my hair and make an "Ahhhh" noise and plant one right on my head. It's so cute and funny. I also think that it's pretty cool that most of the time when I say "Gimme a kiss" that she'll do it. Not sleeping- this is not a good one. She used to go to bed really early and sleep like 12 hours and then take a few naps during the day. Lately she's been staying up until 1 am or later, waking up early in the morning and then only taking one nap a day. I'm exhausted. Especially considering I'm not a good sleeper to begin with. So many bloggings may be done with RocknrollmcBaby right here in my lap.

So excuse any typos. Lol.
