Lyla is almost 8 months!

This picture is from like 2 weeks ago but is my most recent of Lyla. My camera is in the shop and will hopefully be back soon! Anyway, here is Lyla at 7 months but she will be 8 months in less than a week! I can't believe how time flies...

I am almost 8 months old.

My eyes are huge

When I am tired, my eyelids turn pink

I crawl everywhere

I climb stairs but can't climb down them

I pull myself up to stand and when I do my feet naturally go in the ballet 2nd position from my braces

I eat solids

I take a bottle

I scream when I am excited

I talk all the time but nobody understands me

I like to talk over people when they are talking.

I like to sing with my mommy and daddy when they sing to me and I like to sing to the radio when I am riding in the car

I have bumps on my gums but still no teeth

I look like my mom

I have all the same facial expressions and mannerisms as my mom

I always want to be held by mom and follow her around wherever she goes and I get frustrated when I try to follow her around but she keeps moving to get things done

I like to be tossed in the air by my daddy

I love to play with mommy and daddy in their bed when I wake up in the morning and crawl (and sometimes spit-up) on their faces

I like to be facing outward when I am being held

I love being around people

I love to eat: puree'd fruits but not veggies (except sweet potatoes), pieces of chicken, cheerios, every other table food, and paper (but my mom always takes it away when she sees me eating it).

I love to chew on everything,including rubber spatulas, but straps of my carseat, baby bjorn, and changing pad are my favorite. :)

I sleep through the night for almost 12 hours straight!

I take about 3-4 hours of naps a day

I am loved very much by my mommy and daddy and make them so proud!

I think it is amazing that she talks all the time and nobody understands her however she can write so clearly on the computer. She is so smart. By the way, Dori would be jealous of that picture

So sweet. I love baby commentary!

8 months, wow, it has gone by really fast! Hayden's eye lids turn pink/red when he's tired too. Glad everything is going so well.

Haha...Lyla is JUST like Jos! They are very similar in taste and likes. Maybe it's just the age, but I bet they could be good friends! So cute!

Jeff and Kira said...

Way too cute! I love the update from Lyla's point of view.

Isn't it amazing how much they change and their personalities shine in less than one year of life! She's adorable! I especially love the part about her singing with you and the radio. She certainly has the lung capacity for it - look out American Idol!
