8 Months Old!

Addison is 8 months old today! We can't even believe it's been that long since she first made her appearance into the world! Here are some of the exciting things she's doing now:
  • Crawling
  • Pulling herself to a stand on EVERYTHING
  • She can wave hello and goodbye
  • Walks extemely well with our help
  • Turns the pages of her books
  • Drinks out of a sippy cup by herself
  • She can pick up her own finger foods and put them in her mouth all by herself
  • She's trying really hard to clap
  • Says "mama", "dada", and "nana". None of it is really in context of course so we don't count them as words but it's still adorable!

This kid is all over the place! She is constantly on the move. We're still working on getting some teeth and this, along with the crawling and standing, have really thrown a wrench into our system. Naps, according to Addi, are no longer necessary. There are way better things to do than go to sleep! We've sadly resorted to driving her around to get her down. The second we put her down into her crib though those eyes pop wide open and its time to go! This makes for very sleepy parents! Luckily, fingers crossed, she is still sleeping through the night though. Its a little bit harder to get her down but once she's asleep she usually stays that way until about 7am.

She's got quite the little personality. She blabbers and giggles all day long (throw in some whining there too...super fun) and the most random things send her into hysterics! She's never met a stranger either. We took her to church for the first time last week and left her in the nursery. That girl was in hog heaven with all of the other babies! She waves at anybody that sends a glance her way and flashes her toothless smile. She's such a sweet girl :)

Alrighty, enough bragging ;) I hope everybody has a wondeful week!
