Our Baby Girl Is Growing Up......8 Months Old!!

Our 8 month old baby girl!!!

Enjoying snuggles and kisses from daddy.

Hanging out with Cousin Olivia!

Auntie Ann, Cousin Levi, Cousin Olivia, and Maddie. "I LOVE MY AUNT!"

Auntie Beth, Auntie Ann, Grandma, and Cousin Levi.

She just loves looking at and wanting to touch Levi.

8 months old today!! Really?!?! So hard to believe it was 8 months ago today that we were anxiously waiting to meet this little girl. She has been such a delightful baby girl. Word just cannot express how in love we are with our little lady. She continues to amaze us each and everyday with her new found skills and personality. :-) She is sooooo close to crawling! She will get herself up onto her hands and knees, do a couple of movements with her hands in an attempt to reach the object of her desire, then flop onto her tummy as if she gives up. Guess it's time to baby proof the house!

She has really been expanding her diet as she has now come to really like tofu, yogurt, avocado, mango, and chicken with sweet potatoes on top of already really liking most fruits and veggies offered to her. She has been deciding over the last few weeks that she really wants to just feed herself so we've been working on trying to figure out the foods that will best suite a gummy 8 month old. Maddie is also incredibly interested in EVERYTHING that is going on around her. Often taking quite some time to finish her bottle or her breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

We have been so lucky to be having a visit from Auntie Ann and Cousin Olivia from Boston! We have all definitely enjoyed lots of family time over the last several days and look forward to more fun times together while they are here. We surely do wish they lived closer and don't want them to EVER leave! :-)
