Eight! Eight! And we can skate!

Well, not quite yet but it sure is great!!! I'm sure you all know what book my title is from....

It is so fun to go through all these baby stages again with my little girl! She is so much busier than my son was at eight months. He was content to sit and observe everything while she just wants to dive right in. Happily she'll roll around finding fun things to play with - anything paper is her favorite. She's still gagging on baby food but I found some bits of paper - letters on them and all in her diaper. As far as food goes she apparently has a very good gag reflex so that's at least intact.

Those of us that know and love her the best have affectionately nicknamed her "grabby". One example is pictured here!

She is literally days away from crawling. She lurches forward - it takes all she has - but she does it and she knows she's supposed to be up on all fours, it's just what she has to do while she up there she's questioning. This is fun but boy was I spoiled with big brother, he hardly moved before he was a year old! She's giving her Mama a run for her money.

When I just had one child I would sometimes question whether I would have enough love for another child and boy do I ever. It's as if my heart doubled in size the first time we heard her little heart beat and it's just welling up more every day. Love is one of those feelings that can be exponentially increased it seems!

I updated her six month post with stats and another picture of her back then. You can follow the link to get to the last baby update and one each post all the way back to birth!

I always told people when I was having my babies that my love didn't have to divide when each new one was born, but multiplied each time!!!
