8 Months


Height: ?
Weight: ?
Head: ?

*We celebrated your 8 month birthday on Mackinaw Island with Grandma and Grandpa West. You fell asleep on the ferry, we rode bikes and even had a little cart for you, ate way too much sugar, and took you swimming in the hotel pool so you could show off your skills :)

It was no fun when Grandma and Grandpa had to go home but we are excited to see them again soon!
(I love this picture of you and Grandpa because you were trying your best to use those pretty eyes of yours to con Grandpa out of a cookie. You must know it works for Aunt Nessa!)

*You've been much more vocal and have started clicking your tongue on the roof of your mouth and sucking on your upper lip. We've heard lots of babbling and and even "dadadada" which may just be daddy...we're not sure yet.

*At 8 months and 5 days I felt your first tooth break through when you were chewing on my finger! It is your front right bottom tooth. About a week later we saw the tooth next to it come through. This means lots of drooling and chewing!

*You've figured out how to crawl/scoot yourself backward. One day I put you on your tummy on the floor of your nursery so I could get ready for work and a few minutes later I found you halfway under your crib!

*You are still pretty distracted to nurse most times except first thing in the morning but we are still going and plan to as long as you will. You've done great with cereal, fruits, vegis, and now meats.

*We celebrated your first 4th of July by taking you to the Lansing city parade and swimming in your backyard pool which you loved! We had every intention on taking you to see fireworks but you fell asleep and poor Norris needed us home anyway.

I of course had plenty of pretty outfits for you to celebrate the holiday in :)

*We had another photo shoot done. You are just too cute not too!

*Reagan Ann you have stolen our hearts and you are such a cute, sweet baby! We just love spending time with you and seeing your many faces and watching you grow!

Daddy and I are so grateful that we will be a family together forever! We love you more than you will ever know!
