8 months

These pictures are getting harder and harder to take! Faegan is much more interested in grabbing and chomping on the paper than smiling for silly ol' me.

This has really been such a fun month. Your little personality is shining through and you are smiling and laughing constantly. You still love for your daddy to come upstairs just before bed time and you bounce with excitement when you hear him on the stairs after we have called for him. You love to play peek-a-boo where one of us hides behind the other and peeks around to see you. We are guaranteed to get laughs when we do this.

We did have a first little boo boo and Faegan got a bit of a black eye. She fell over and hit the edge of a board book. She was a trooper though and didn't let it bother her.

I ordered your convertible car seat just before our weekend trip to Georgia. You are still rear facing, but since you have gotten bigger, I don't take the infant carrier out of the car any more. I figured since I was leaving it in the car all the time, it would probably be more comfortable for you to be in your big girl seat. You really have never minded being in your car seat - just the buckling in process.

You still love to eat. We had some issues this month and had to add prunes to your daily diet. This seems to have solved the problem and your are happy once more.

One of your favorite activities is going outside to see the cows, dogs, and chickens. You pump your legs and say "mmmmmm" to every animal we encounter.

This is about as much interest as we have in crawling. You can get up on all fours, but you haven't started rocking back and forth too much.

Here is a picture of your bottom teeth. You have four coming in on the top!

You are an absolute chunk and a half. We don't realize how roly poly you are until you don't have any clothes on. I love this picture, and I love those rolls!

You are still wearing size 3 diapers and clothes range from 9 months to 18 months. I am buying 18m bubbles for the summer, but the 18m dresses are too long. I just got you some precious little summer sandals in size 2.

You still adore, me, your daddy, and Miss Jessica. It is so much easier to leave in the morning when I see her get excited to see Miss Jessica in the mornings. You also started waving bye bye! I was so happy!

You are still sleeping in all night in your room upstairs. You go down about 7 or 7:30 and wake up around 6:30 or 7. You don't fuss when you wake up, you just wait patiently for someone to come get you out of bed. You also don't fuss when it is time for bed. We have truly been blessed that we can put you down in your bed and you go to sleep on your own. You are still a thumb sucker, but only in your bed.

You also adore your bed, your blanket, and your bumper. You rub either your blanket or your bumpers until you fall asleep.

This is how I found you one night.

We are transitioning from three naps to two. We are trying to have a morning nap around 8:30 and an afternoon nap around 1:30. Usually you will sleep for close to two hours for those naps.

You are such a sweet baby and a joy to us. I thank God every day that he blessed us with you!
