Splits!!

Love this girl. She won't crawl, but she will do the splits for anything! She came out of the womb wide legged and hasn't closed her legs since.

8 months old

It hit me the other day that I don’t just have an 8 month old – but I will have a one year old in 4 months. Here are a few things I want to remember.

-Lucy loves to be tickled – I love tickling her neck!

-Lucy knows the sound of the Kleenex box and immediately guards her face with her hands.

-Lucy is still a ‘legs open’ kind of girl. We have caught her doing the splits a few times

-She is just barely getting the hang of baby food – it has been a LONG 3 month process. Christmas day she finally opened her mouth willingly. Nursing an 8 month old full time is quite draining so I am thrilled we are able to get a little bit of solids in her.

-Her favorite foods of choice are sweet potatoes and pears.

-Lucy is our little Indian. When you tap your finger on her lips, she knows just what to do!

-She is still our little steam roller. We put up the gate last week because she was always finding her way to the stairs.

-Lucy is FINALLY sleeping better at night (still not much of a napper). Some nights are still horrible (waking up every 2-3 hours), but I can usually count on one 5 - 6 hour period. I am loving it!

-Lucy is such a talker. She just babbles, yelps, whines, screams, squeals, and makes donkey noises all day long.

-The past month Lucy has decided she hates to get her diaper changed or get dressed.

I love this little girl and I am so happy I get to play with her everyday!
