happy 8 months to my love bug

It's so hard to get a picture of this girl these days... she is always on the move!

- Mia is crawling!! She had the army crawl mastered, but as soon as she had crawling mastered she never looked back!
- In fact.... Mia just kept moving forward. The day after she mastered crawling (as in, no more army crawl) she started pulling herself into the standing position! The first time she did it was on August 9th... much to my surprise! This girl just doesn't stop :)
- We actually lowered Mia's crib on August 8th because she was pulling herself to her knees constantly. Good thing we did since she has pulled herself to the standing position every day since!
- She also LOVES to walk while holding our hands or balancing on an object. 
- Oh, I forgot to mention that Mia can also sit herself up! She never likes to lay down anymore.
- Diaper changes are quite the challenge these days. As soon as we lay Mia down she rolls back over and crawls off. I cant tell you how many times I've seen that naked bum scurry away, HA! 
- Mia is still eating pureed baby food mixed with oatmeal cereal. But she pretty much eats everything we eat (aside from meat. She got a bite of bacon on accident but I think I'm going to start giving her tiny pieces of meat now) and she does so well! She prefers fresh chunks of fruit over pureed fruit. And the girl still loves her veggies most! I'm too nervous to give her chunks of watermelon (she choked on that once) and pineapple so I put those in the mesh things and she loves to suck the juice out!  
- This girl gives the best kisses! She will totally lean over with her mouth wide open until she makes contact :) I love that she gives kisses even though they are more slobbery than I prefer ;)
- Mia thinks it's super funny to play the fake coughing/laughing game with mom and dad. She loves to hear us do it, and then do it back to us :)
- She is SO playful! We have the funnest, silliest and happiest baby ever. And yes, we know how blessed we are! 
- Mia is still wearing 6 month clothing.
- She is still in size 2 diapers.  


Mia truly is my little bestie! She is the happiest part of our lives! Eric and I are so wrapped... we love this girl to the moon and back (times infinity)!

RadiantKristen said...

The two of you together have some great facial expressions! Can't believe she's 8 months already...

Deidre said...

Both of you are just so gorgeous. I find it amazing that babies go from barely moving to moving so fast in such a short amount of time. I mean on the flip side it takes most humans 80 years before walking becomes a struggle - and only 8 months to master crawling at high speeds.

LOVESTRONG said...
