Letters to Eve: 8 Months
Mommy is a little behind with this letter. You turned eight months old over a week ago! I just can't believe how much you have changed over this past month. You interact with us so much more and you are all over the place! I have to keep an eye on you at all times. Your personality is growing and it is so fun to get to see it!
|Daddy thought it would be funny to put you in a drawer|
A couple of weeks ago you started to pull yourself up to a standing position! You first started doing it using either Daddy or me. Then you did it using the back of a bench at church. After that you started doing it all the time. You'll use whatever is available- the couch, chairs, your crib, boxes, open drawers. It is so adorable. It's your favorite thing to do right now.
You also started to crawl on your hands and knees a couple of weeks ago! You're getting really good at it. You rarely army crawl now.
Since you've been able to crawl, you've also been able to push yourself into a sitting position. No one has to help you anymore. You still fall over occasionally when you're sitting, though. You don't seem to quite understand that it's not a good idea to just let yourself fall backward.
|Wearing your cousin Lara's hat|
You don't really like to eat pureed baby food anymore. It's a struggle every day to get you to eat half of a jar. I've started feeding you cut up fruits and vegetables and you seem to like this a lot more than the purees. You still don't eat very much of it though. You are just not a big eater.
|The face you make when I feed you pureed food|
|Enjoying some watermelon|
In the past few weeks you have also become very chatty! You use syllables now and it is the cutest thing ever! I can't help but smile every time you break out in a little rant. I can't wait until I can understand what you're saying!
My one complaint is that you have changed your sleeping habits! You used to sleep from 10 pm to 7:30 am and then go back to sleep for another couple of hours. Now you wake up at 5am and then sleep till about 8am. I don't mind the 8am part, just the 5am part!
Daddy and I just adore you! You bring us so much happiness.
I love you more and more each day, little girl.
