Eight Months!

Our lil girl turns the big eight months today!

(I'm telling ya, the girl takes her photo shoots very seriously...)

Weight:  She's a solid 18 pounds these days.

Major Milestones:  Oh wow, has she grown and developed.
*She can now crawl (and is getting quicker every day).
*She easily pulls herself up and can stand for awhile.
*The past month her babbles started taking on "real sounds," such as "bbb," "ggg," and "ddd."  She even can make a sound like "dada," but we don't think she's intentionally doing it, though I think her dad just may claim it ;)
*She started eating chicken meat this past week, and well, we're not convinced that she's a big fan.  She is however a very good eater.  I home-make about 90% of her food and she does a GREAT job eating generally.

Other:  *It's safe to say we have a sleep fighter.  She generally takes one morning nap and one afternoon nap...anywhere between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours.  We put her in her crib for about 30 minutes leading up to the time she actually will go to sleep, and she will eventually fall asleep (because after all she IS tired).  Whew.  It's been our biggest challenge with her to date.  The girl is ENERGETIC and sleeping just isn't her best friend.
*She continues to love bath time
*She really has fun laughing at her dad :)
*We're also going through some separation anxiety right now...she's needing her mama lately (I love being with my girl, but it has proven difficult to leave her with others, of course).

Happy eight months, you lil sleep-fighting, chicken-disliking, crawling, babbling, standing, smiling, cutie, you!


  1. Happy 8 months, precious, little angel, Elise! We love you very much!

  2. Can't believe she's 8 months already! It just happens too fast, doesn't it!

  3. Adorable! She is so so cute! I'm hoping Immanuelle will top 13 pounds by 8 months! HA!

  4. Charity, That bow looks like the one you used to wear 'cept your was 85 times bigger. She is just beautiful.
