Eight Months

What a month this has been! You took your first road trip, starting eating finger foods, dropped a nap, and started crawling! All within a few weeks too. You had been scooting everywhere (well, when you were motivated enough) but today you got up on your knees and kept going. You haven't quite mastered it just yet but I'm sure you will within a matter of days. This is what we were able to watch you do today (ignore the disposable diaper...she wore her skinny jeans and her cloth diapers are a bit snug in them):

(Did you notice what motivated her to move so quickly?! Hahaha)

We're so proud of you, munchkin. You're maturing so quickly and it's so exciting to watch you take everything in. Although, you've started to get frustrated when we don't understand what it is you're trying to "tell" us. In fact, you've perfected the whine (which drives your momma nuts sometimes) while trying to gesture to what you want. It's an interesting game we play to try and figure out what it is you want, but hopefully you'll start speaking soon. I know you're learning more than we can even imagine and we can't wait until we can have conversations with you about the things you're learning. The ladies in the nursery at church always comment on what a good baby you are and how confident you are. They were quite surprised that you didn't cry or whine the first time we dropped you off there, and they get so excited when we you arrive.

We don't know how much you currently weigh but Bri guesses about 16lbs. You're still wearing an assortment of sizes anywhere from 0-9 months, depending on the brand. You continue to sleep 12+ hours at night and take 30 minute naps during the day. You do surprise us now and then with a 45min nap, and the other day you took a 2hr nap! I was so excited! You love to give kisses and are SO nosy curious. Nursing you has become an ordeal if there is anything/anyone within earshot, and you love to stare at watch strangers; it's a good thing you're so cute!

Thank you for making our lives complete. You make us laugh and bring such joy to our home. You are a delight to be around and bring smiles to everyone you meet. Your sweet nature is an example of God's love in your life and we pray that He continues to have His hand on you always. We love you our sweet girl.

Haha I was hanging in suspense for what she was crawling after! At first I thought it was the remote which would have been a BOY thing and then I realized it was the SNACKS which is a gender neutral thing. Smart girl...Go get those snacks!!!!

omg this is SO funny...I was just showing this video to Brayden and he said to me, "Look mama, Baby Anayah is going for the "mote" (which means remote)!" WRONG!

If you look closely, you can see her cruise right by the remote in her quest to reach those snacks. She is focused! :)
