Giana, my love, you are 8 months old today. You're napping now, so no pictures of you, I'll try my best to take some and post later.
You are as precious as ever. And your personality is really beginning to show; for the most part we see sweetness, little smiles, contagious laughs, your little "granny" face (as daddy likes to call it), and from time to time we catch your temper...but even your temper is adorable!
You have two little teeth, so cute! You got your second tooth on April 12th.
Your hair continues to thicken and it gets curlier by the day, ha! I think you may be a smidge more curly than you brother, but his is stick straight now, so you never know what that hair will do.
You crawl, you're not a pro just yet, but you can get where you need to go. You can pull up all by yourself and you love to stand and jump. You are very strong!
Clothes are mostly 6-9 months now and size 2 shoe. We are getting ready to bump you up to a size 3 diaper (as soon as we finish up with the 2's).
You have officially graduated to your bedroom and your crib, wow! You sleep well in your room too, so far it's been really good for you. The transition was very smooth.
Lately you've been going to bed at or between 9-9:15 and you wake up bright and early by 7am!!! WOW!
Mommy just started a new job at the bank, so at 8 months, mommy had to leave you, which makes me very sad. Gavin was 18 months when I started work, but we have to do what we have to do. But I think of you and your brother often...and I talk about you both lots! And I'm known to show pictures too ;)
Your big brother that you adore continues to pester you daily, hourly, minutely, sometimes secondly! But you continue to love him very much and he can bring out a belly laugh in you like no other. And he loves very much too, he just doesn't know how to show it in a gentle way.
You are a good girl in church, but you are beginning to let everyone know you are there, so we may be taking you to the nursery soon...I'll be putting that one off as long as possible!!!
You travel well, no excellent...the car puts you to sleep almost immediately...as long as it's moving, you're snoozing. But bring it to a stop and those eyes are quick to open.
You still take between 4-5 bottles a day, 6oz every bottle, but 5oz. on the last bottle before bed. You eat 3 times a day. Usually 1/2-1 full container at a time. You really love food.
I'm not sure on your weight, your next appointment is at 9 months. But you are growing like a weed and you have the cutest little chubby legs and cheeks ever. You are the perfect amount of lovable cuddly chubbiness!
Mommy and daddy (and brother too) adore you sweet little princess. You bring us so much joy and warmth. You are beautiful and sweet and every thing and more that I could ever want or need. God sure has blessed us with 2 amazing babies and as I always say I could never give Him enough thanks.
We love sweet girl---Happy 8 Months mommy's sweet flower!!!!
