Eight Months

Dear Emma,

You turned 8 months old yesterday and I am amazed at all you can do! You are growing up too quickly. Some days I just want to freeze the moment and cherish it forever. Especially when you scoot up to me, say "mama" and want me to hold you. You are scooting around quite quickly these days and I'm sure crawling will be soon. You also love to pull up on things and stand. You will stand for about 15 minutes at a time, just looking around at everything. Now that you are more mobile, you are into everything! Your Mommy and Daddy are rearranging the house and trying to make things safe for you. We can't leave you alone for even a few seconds without you finding something to get into. You grab everything you can get a hold of, which includes (but is not limited to): hair, your kitties, noses, remotes, cell phones, tupperware, pans, and your most favorite is paper. You would play with and eat paper all day long if we would let you. You still love to eat and are now enjoying cheerios and avocado as new finger foods. You are also eating with your mesh feeder now and love to eat apples and pears. You aren't too sure about grapes and you still are not thrilled with vegetables (pureed or in your mesh feeder). Oh yeah, and you LOVE to play peek-a-boo! We love watching you learn and grow and are so proud of what you can already do!

Mommy and Daddy

I can't believe Emma is 8 months old already. She is growing up way to fast!

Also if you just click the word cover on the last fashion friday edition it should take you right to the website, two are from etsy and one is from an online baby boutique.
