8 months

Hailey, you turned 8 months on Sunday! You weigh 17 lbs, 12 oz. You still wear the same size clothes and diapers as last month. You can clap now and you sometimes do the baby sign for milk. You love to pat, grab, eat, and bang on things (with your spoon, or whatever you can wave around)

You sit up very well now. You lunge forward to get on all fours when you're sitting and you want to get somewhere, but you don't move from that position yet. You can do a combination of sitting up, rolling around, and sitting back up again to get where you want to go. It's very cute.

You love to be outside just as much as your brother does. You like to "ride" in the Baby Bjorn, which so far has already been used for you more than we used it for Tyson! (Need to be hands free when there's a 3 year old running around!)

People get lost in your beautiful blue eyes. So far they haven't changed a bit, let's hope they stay beautiful!

You love to play with your toys, and Tyson loves to play right along with you. He makes you laugh all the time. He tickles you and loves to make you happy.

You still talk to us all the time. You are still very afraid of anyone besides Mommy, Daddy, Tyson, Ms. Lucy and Ms. Cecilia, even when we are in the same room with you. Your doctor says that's normal and that you will grow out of it in the next few months. You try to imitate noises and respond to us when we ask you questions.
You have little routines that you do ~ one is turning on the sink faucet every night while I'm getting you ready for your bath. You have learned that toys don't disappear, so you get upset when we have to take something away and you also try dropping your toys to see what will happen.
You are a very happy, fun, content baby when you're in a comfortable situation. We love you very much!
