What?!?!  This little sweet thing is already EIGHT MONTHS OLD?!?  I cannot believe it!

DSC_0013

This month has probably sneaked up on me because there have been so many milestones happening around here:

Teeth (two on bottom, SIX more showing through)

Crawling.  Here is the evolution in just one month:

And now, pulling herself up onto a step!! Her core is so strong, she can completely hold herself upright without putting her weight onto me and she also can “walk” if we hold her hands.  My new favorite though, is if we call her name, she will come crawling to us and crawl right up into our lap (okay, so a little dog-like, but who’s watching….:))

Lots more sitting

Lots more eating (yay!)

And lots of sleeping (biggest yay!!)

Bea is starting to notice all the little details in her world. She picks at fuzz in the carpet, will spend minutes trying to pick up a sticker discovered on the floor, and fascinates herself by turning the same toy over and around without getting bored.  She continues to grow more fun each day as she enjoys playing, not only by herself but also with MG.

MG is living up to her nickname, “The Baby Whisperer” as she often knows Bea’s needs before I do…

“Mommy,

Bea’ playing with something dangerous…no, no, Bea!  <<moves all of her toys onto high furniture, out of reach>>

I think she wants this {completely age inappropriate} toy…can we get it for her birthday?

I think she wants me to hold her.”

She can hear Bea crying from a mile away, “Bea’s cwying, Mommy!!  We need to go get her!!!!!!!”

(this picture just about sums up their relationship right now :))

and also can interpret her babblings.  “Bea said I can play with her dolly.”

In a way, MG has caused me to see Bea in a whole new respect.  She appreciates things about her that I just akin to babies, but because she likes them, I do too.  She is also Bea’s little cheerleader and together we spend a lot of time admiring her.  “Look, MG, she’s crawling!” “Yay!!  Look, Mommy, she’s still crawling!”.  This child will never want for attention, that is sure.

Finally, a picture for comparison:8mos copy

(though two blue-eyed blondes, two very different looking girls at 8 months)

Oh Bea, we are eight months in and look how much you have grown.  Each day brings a new discovery: you in your world and me about you. I’m not sure there has been a baby ever more loved and admired than you.  Between your dad, sister, and I, you’ll never want for anything.  Love (with all of our hearts),
