8 wonderful months

I cannot believe my baby girl is EIGHT months old today. Kind of discouraging that we are eight months in and I still don't have the two-kid thing down. But she is just so sweet and I can't get enough of her!

Her little smile melts my heart--I am constantly putting off my to-do list just so I can get her to laugh. She absolutely adores Grey and lights up every time she hears or sees him. He can get her to giggle harder than anyone. I love it!

I guess this perfect baby has to have some flaws---she is still not sleeping through the night and I am SO tired! We have been trying to let her cry it out the last few nights, but it hasn't worked just yet. Plus she is so tiny I want her to eat tons and fatten up!

Poor baby still has no teeth, but I swear she has been teething for the past month. She is still not too sure about food besides squash and all fruits. She yells/barks at me if I don't feed her fast enough.

At eight months, she is finally sitting up! I was starting to wonder... 

Thank you Elise for bringing us 8 months of JOY!

I love her smile too! She makes everyone happier for having been around her. : ) Hopefully she will start sleeping for you soon. Brenna finally did after we stopped nursing.

She is such a cutie! I'm just thrilled for you!
Sorry to hear she's not sleeping well. My 18 month old did that too. I finally tried a book called Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems, by Richard Ferber, MD. It worked for us. Maybe it will help.
A lack of sleep is awful. I figure that EVENTUALLY they'll be teenagers and want to sleep. :)
