{Blakely}: 8 months

Eight months.  Man, it's flying by, and it's so much fun.  She's such a little love, and every day is a new adventure.  So much happened this month, between developmental milestones and fun trips, that we're having to really slow down and enjoy each day as it comes or we feel like we'll miss something.  
Her personality is truly blossoming, and man are we going to have our hands full.  She loves being around the action, and thrives off of routine and being on a schedule.  She plays well alone and with us, but definitely wishes she could follow big brother around everywhere he goes (and play with all of his toys).  She loves to eat, and will eat most anything I offer to her.  She definitely wants to feed herself, and loves exploring new foods.  Her current favorite are blueberry waffles, and she is always down for a Mum or two.  She LOVES sleep.  We put her down at 7:45pm and often have to wake her in the morning to get Knox to school.  We definitely lucked out in that department!

She now crawls all over our house, has two teeth, waves hi (though it's few and far between), and pulls up to standing.  She's still a bit wobbly once on her feet, so I look forward to her being a bit more stable so I won't have a heart attack every time she topples over.  

She is such a happy baby, and we are just so lucky to get to be her parents!

Here are a few of her pictures from this past month, with a few of our travels included:

I still melt any time she falls asleep on me

  1. So cute, and I love your hair! Where did you have farm fun in Fredericksburg? My dad lives down there and we're always looking for fun places to take the boys when we visit. (Kelly F.)
