One of our most delightful blessings turned eight months old yesterday. She spent much of her day being a very good baby for mom and dad (and all the passengers) on a plane ride home from San Diego.
What’s she been up to lately?
-the cutest baby babble and lip-smacking noises
-She’s teething. Two bottom teeth that have already broken through. Today she has the classic runny nose and low-grade temp that come with the territory.
-she’s been trying for months to sit up on her own. Keep trying, sweet girl! She can do it when she’s propped up on a pillow.
-she can sit for a few wobbly seconds.
-she has to have something in her hands to play with, or frustration begins.
-she can roll over both ways.
-she reaches over for you if she wants you to hold her.
-so far, she’s tried rice, oatmeal, peas, green beans, and bananas but doesn’t seem to be a huge fan of any.
-and just today…could she be starting to wave “bye bye” already? She was imitating Daddy a few times, so I think it was a genuine milestone.
Happy Eight Months, sweet baby! You are pure joy to our family!
