Eight Months

I'm more than amazed at how much you've grown and everything you can do. When I think about how little and helpless you seemed, that all seems so silly now. You're hell bent on doing whatever you can, as often as you want. That may not go over so well shortly- but for now, we'll ride it out.

We have no stats this month other than weight, 23lb 14oz. You're not climbing the scale as steadily these days. A lot of that has to do with your insane desire to wiggle. Once you figured out how to crawl, self propelled motions became the name of your game

Margaret can:
  • crawl
  • pull to a stand
  • stand!
  • cruise!
Margaret likes:
  • standing and watching Sesame Street
  • standing in the front yard
  • yelling at cars as they drive by

We don't yell at all of the cars though. We sit outside and wait for daddy to come home most mornings. You get soooo stinking excited when you see him pull in the driveway. It's more than a little adorable.

It's amazing what a change in texture can do.

We tried to give you mango in a feeder- you weren't really down with that. It might have still been a little cold/frozen in the middle. Which might have been the cause for your, lack of interest. I found some pureed mango and you loooooove it. Don't believe me? Mr Uncle Jamey had to watch you eat some. He can tell you. And I didn't even slip him a $5 bill to say it.

And the list grows!

Pineapple too has now been conquered. Luckily for you there seems to be more in the way of fruit than vegs in the baby food department, so you're getting a whole heap of natural sweetness. I prefer that over the artificiality of freezie pops.

No foolin' here

You think Plums are pretty fantastic. There are going to be quite a few of these posts until you figure out crawling. You can feel free to start that any day now. Aaaaaany day now.
