8 Months Old Today
Happy 8 Months, Baby Girl!
It is flying by faster than ever!
She is a joy and I love the way she gets excited to see me and tries to eat my face. I give her the puffed cereal finger foods in her highchair and she collects as many as she can in her hands. They stick there or either on her face. Once in awhile she gets one in her mouth and gags.
I also love the way she stands on her toes in her bouncer to see me at the kitchen sink. It is so funny to see those little eyes peering at me over the sofa. I am a celebrity at this stage of the game. She is excited at every siting of me and squeals and laughs if I just smile at her. She puts on a big fuss if I leave the room, but soon forgets about me.
She bounces or jumps excessively in my opinion. Even when she is sitting still on the floor she is bobbing up and down. She has figured out how to do it in the tub where she can bounce on her bottom and slide back and forth at the same time. It is incredible that she doesn't fall right over. Gosh, why can't I ever remember to video it?
When I am driving the car I hear her behind me playing and laughing. I wonder what she must be thinking to be laughing out loud.
I think this will definitely be the last month I have to put her down to play and not wonder where she went. She is doing the "airplane" and going short distances now. My husband keeps trying to teach her to crawl (so she can work off all that food she is eating) and I keep telling him to STOP! It is hard to imagine her next summer when she will be big enough to tell me NO and STOP!
