Hadley June, eight crazy months have passed since you were first placed in my arms and forever imprinted upon my heart. Life is with you is so exciting and joyful.
My little Hippo, at 8 months:
You weigh just under 19 pounds
You commando crawl, roll, scoot, and slither anywhere you want to go. I imagine you will truly crawl any day now
You can pull yourself up to sitting or kneeling
You get into EVERYTHING
You put EVERYTHING in your mouth (no teeth yet, though)
You sleep well and eat well
You love beans, chicken, yogurt, avocado, spinach, and anything with cinnamon
You love to feed yourself- with a sippy cup and baby finger foods
You are prone to ear infections
You just started preschool and the teachers wish every baby was as happy as you are
You sign "milk"... often
You chatter... Daddy swears he hears "DaDa"
You are loved and adored!
