8 months & growing



  • You have found your voice. I mean really found it.  Dinnertime is quite noisy and we try to coax you to use your inside voice. Inside voice? You don’t know the meaning.  You just scream and squeal!  You’re really starting to babble too.  Having little conversations with yourself, the kitties, your babies, Mama, Bubba, Dada, anyone who’ll listen.  You’ve said “mama” and yesterday you said “bubba”.
  • You like to play patty-cake but haven’t learned to clap yet.  You still don’t know how to roll from your back to your tummy either.  I’m beginning to think you just don’t want too.
  • You officially have 3 toofers now!  The top left lateral incisor just popped through yesterday (April 8th).  You have the top right lateral incisor and the bottom left lateral incisor working their way through.  I can see them but they’re still beneath the gums.  All this to say, you chew on anything you can get your hands on!
  • You light up when Colin talks to you. I hope that you two will have a special bond as you grow up together.
  • You still wake up during the night. I’m beginning to think you just wanna hang out with Mama and be reassured that everything’s alright and it’s ok to go back to sleep.  It’s hard to get up at 3am but I can’t complain…I do love the cuddle time!
  • You listen to the cd Blink by Plumb as naptime and bedtime
  • I love the nuzzle into the side of your neck.  There’s all kinds of baby goodness there and I can’t seem to get enough.  It also makes you giggle and that’s a bonus.
  • You don’t like your green veggies so mama has to sneak your greens with something a little sweeter, more appetizing such as peas with bananas.
  • You like to run your hands through Dada’s hair {see below} and you’re his little “bright eyes”
