Exciting Eight {Months}

Oh Emmalee, you are 8 months old and what an exciting 8 months it has been!!!!  You constantly keep us on our toes!  You are crawling all over the place and you pull up on everything.  I think daredevil might be a future career path for you.  If momma or daddy holds your hands then you can walk around.  You also like to hold on to coffee table and walk around it.

You weight almost exactly 17 lbs and wear 6-9 month clothes, a few 9-12 if it is a one-piece with feet because you are so tall.  You wear a size 3 diaper and size 2 shoes.  You eat 4 6-oz bottles a day with a solid for lunch and dinner.  You really like mashed bananas, mum-mum's and bread.  At Thanksgiving you even ate some sweet potatoes and you liked them a lot!  You are definitely part momma because you have a big sweet tooth!  You still sleep like a champ.  You go to sleep around 8:00 each night and sleep until 6 or 6:30 each morning.  Sometimes  you wake up in the middle of the night, but I just give you your pacifier and blankie and you're back to sleep.  You still don't fuss much, although you are becoming a momma's girl more and more each day.  You are definitely more vocal than you used to be - if something is happening that you don't like then you are quick to let us know!

You still love your bath, love your toys and, of course, your blankie is still your favorite thing.  You love playing with "big" kids (like your cousins) and love being outside.  You like Dax and Kai - you like to pet them and love of them, but Dax sometimes knocks you down because he is so big.  But you're still buddies!  Your best friend is Aubree at Ms. Donna's.  You love to "talk" and play together.  Ms. Donna sure does love you and loves keeping you while momma and daddy go to work.

Momma and Daddy sure do love you!  You make our lives so much fun.  You make smiles and laughter fill our home.  We are so blessed to have you and can't believe how lucky we are to have such a special miracle like you.

Happy 8 months, baby girl!

I love you,
