Sweet baby girl,
Happy 8 month birthday to you! Oh my, 8 months! You are getting to be such a big girl. Mommy and Daddy (and everyone else for that matter) cannot believe that you are the same little peanut we brought home from the hospital just 7 months ago at 4 pounds 6 ounces. You weigh about 19 1/2 pounds now, though we won't have an official weight until we go to see your doctor for your 9 month appointment. You love to eat. Your favorites are oatmeal, sweet potatoes and bananas, though you really like everything we've given you so far. You are very ticklish...especially on your feet, your neck, and your belly. As soon as you see me coming for your neck, you giggle and try to make it so I can't tickle you. You are very smart! You are sitting up and playing with your toys all by yourself now. You are really pushing up on your arms and are starting to move your legs a lot...but you aren't getting anywhere yet! Before long you're going to be crawling and we won't be able to take an eye off you!
You are showing your little personality more and more each day. Lately, you've been coughing for attention! You also kick at your highchair tray when Mommy tries to put it on and smirk like you know what you're doing, you little booger! What you love most (besides your family of course!) are kisses, baths, walks, the swings at the playground, playing with Wrigley, people watching, and sleeping on your tummy. You also love the swimming pool. You are such a little fish! You are getting really good at giving kisses, though they are still quite slobbery. You have the concept down pat, though!
Most importantly, you are a very sweet girl. You are just so lovable, hugable and kissable. You are very mellow and love to cuddle while Mommy reads to you. Your Mommy and Daddy love you so much, sweet angel. We couldn't imagine life without you and look forward to every new day because it's another day we get to spend with you! Thank you for completing Mommy and Daddy's world! We adore you, Princess.
