8 Months Old

8 months

You turned 8 months on the 11th, and almost immediately you were saying “mama” and have 2 teeth coming in! I noticed while I was feeding you the two middle teeth were coming in almost together. I can not wait to see your beautiful smile with teeth. Although, we happen to think your “no teeth” face is very funny too.

The fact that you say mama now just melts my heart, and over the last few days you just started to say baba now too. I can’t imagine what you will say next. We will see!

You are almost crawling now. You basically are crawling, but only do about 2 crawls before you decide to stop, sit up or roll over. I bet by the end of the week you are really moving.

Last weekend we went to Lindsay’s 4th birthday party. You were a good girl, and looked so cute in the chef themed party attired.

Aug 7-9 2010

So, Mommy and Daddy went to Ryan's Wedding this past Saturday in NJ. Your Nanny, Nana, and Aunt Bonnie watched you and they had a wonderful time. They said you were "perfect". For some reason whenever we seemed to go to Carmel or see them since you were born, you seemed to be having a fussy day and cried alot. They finally got to enjoy you and see the happy baby that I told them you were.

You went to Walmart with them, and then out to Applebees. They even gave you a tubby.

This was my first night with out you since you were born. I missed you alot. It was also nice for Mommy and Daddy to have a night out though. Ryan and Olivia's Wedding was right on the Hudson over looking the Manhattan Skyline. We drank, danced, ate and had a beautiful hotel room for the night.

On Sunday when we got home, I put you in a dress that Trish gave to us. It is Pink with roses on it and a matching hat. We sat out in the yard on a blanket and you played with your toys while mommy took beautiful pictures of you. Rowan wore that dress on her 1st birthday, for her birthday party. It really means alot to me, that they gave us the dress and that you got to wear it while it was still warm enough to wear dresses. You are a big girl. You turn 8 months on Wednesday and this dress is a size 18 months and basically fit you perfectly.

The picture I took tonight is of you biting your activity gym mat. You basically bite everything right now, but still no teeth.

You are growing up so fast. You look more like a "little girl" then a baby lately. You are about to crawl anyday now and when we put you up to the couch can stand and support yourself.

This weekend is going to be the very first night I spend without you. Mommy and Daddy are going to Daddy's friend Ryan's Wedding in New Jersey. I am going to miss you so much. The upside of it is, you will get to spend the weekend with you Nanny, Nana and Aunt Bonnie. They are coming to our house and spending the night tomorrow. I think you are going to have fun with all of them, and they are just going to love every minute of you.

Just a side note about the above picture. Our Chihuahua Ozzie has never bit anyone and we were right there as we watched Oz, just growl at Madelyn pulling her tail.

2. Jumperoo 8/1/2010

Madelyn has finally started to enjoy her Jumperoo for longer then 10 minutes. I swear she could have stayed in it for an hour today if we let her.

Josh put chicken on the grill for dinner and I made the sides while Madelyn entertained herself in the Jumperoo watching Baby Einstein on DVD. I highly recommend the series to new moms if you want to get anything done while your little one is less then a year old.

Here is day 2 of my 365 Challenge.
