8 months old...

The time has flown since our precious Parker made her entrance into this world and blessed our lives. At 8 months old she's busy discovering the world around her. She is still not crawling, but seems to be more interested lately, as she frequently leans forward from a sitting positions and will sometimes balance on her knees and hands, but usually ends up on her belly (which she is not too fond of). She's become a pro at pulling herself up, and is even starting to side-step from one end of her toy chest to the other. She can even stand on her own a few seconds at a time! She can eat cheerios and some other finger foods, which she seems to really enjoy. Unfortunately, she is not a fan of vegetables anymore, so we are mixing them with pears and apples and sneaking them in! She loves bath time...even so much that when it's time to get out she pushes my hands away because she doesn't want me to pick her up, and will even throw a small fit when I do get her out! She calms down pretty quickly, though. We have begun to use the word "no" as each day she gets into more and more! Oddly enough, she does stop what she's doing, takes a moment to look up at me, then, with her eyes still looking into mine, will slowly continue to do whatever it is I told her not to do! And so here it begins... She is definitely showing distinct personality characteristics! :-)

I love that I am able to be home with her because she is changing and growing so fast...I don't want to miss a thing!
