I know I'm behind in posting this but our baby girl turned 8 months old about a week and a half ago. Here's what's new with her these days:
-She now has 3 almost 4 teeth! Her first top tooth finally emerged. I can tell that she's getting older and learning how to handle the pain of teething better. It still effects her sleep but not nearly as much as it did when she was cutting her bottom teeth. So thankful for that!
-She's learned how to shake her head "no". Not that she knows what it means but we get the biggest kick out of asking her a question and her saying no no matter what it is. "Reese, do you love Mommy?" "No!" We know it won't always be cute but for now we're enjoying her learning new things. :)
-As of two days ago she's really starting to figure out where her knees are and how they work for crawling. The only problem: she's going backwards not forwards. I had a feeling that crawling might be happening just as we were ready to put up our Christmas tree. We're giving her 2 weeks and thinking she's really going to get the hang of it quickly!
-Reese is still a little feather weight. We don't go to the doctor again till 9 months but our scale here at home said she's 16.5 pounds. She's stayed little a lot longer that way and wearing 6 month clothes.
-Hands down dad is still her favorite plaything. She loves it when he comes home from work or is home on the weekends.
-We are so excited to have her here this year for Thanksgiving and Christmas! What a joy to celebrate as a family of 3!
