8 Months Already

I can't believe our bundle of joy celebrates her 8th month already today.  Time certainly has flown and before you know it, I'll be back at work full time again.  Cammie keeps growing leaps and bounds every day.

In fact, yesterday she finally got the "dada" sound down.  We think she even related it to daddy.  She's finally taken off with her start of crawling skills.  At first she was very reluctant to even try crawling as she wanted to just sit and play.  But we've been focusing on playing on the ground and this time has help her.

In the past month she has learned how to finally go from a sit onto her tummy.  She can turn in a 360 or flip from back to front.  She can also pull herself up with guidance and love to stand up much more.  Her successes come more with her agility and hand eye coordination which she probably gets from her mommy.  She's always fascinated by how things work which definitely is something she gets from daddy.

We also love to look out the window and watch the world outside.  Mommy was the same way when she was little.  She even seems to do this when she's in her high chair.  Cammie seems to know what she wants when she eats, which can be a little aggravating for us.  She's eating a lot more but seems to choose her foods even before they land on her tray.  At least she's eating a lot more and is showing more interest in eating unlike at her 6 month mark.

And lastly she's a talker.  We've always known this as she was babbling away at 2.5 months.  When she recognizes someone she loves to shout "Ha" in a very cute manner as well as babbling more than "Mamamama" since this past week.

She also know got to meet her cousins who moved to town within the last 2 weeks.  We are lucky to have family around and so excited to be able to see them a lot more.

Here are a few photos from the last few weeks.

I love sitting on mommy's chair with my tooth brush.

I'm very strong

Mom I'm crawling, it's not fun yet!

I love being puzzled by my tooth brush, which end is really up?

Playing away

Rocking in my tiny car seat that we just grew out of.

Eating.  I'm still not so sure about this stuff!

But I know how to wave on command.

Ready to go out in the cold weather.

Hugging my big cousin!
I've been bad about blogging but at least I do keep the photos coming.  We will have a busy December and January before I'm back into the working mode.

    Oh she is so gorgeous - I had a chuckle at the photo of her with the hat on all rugged up..just beautiful. My son is 20 months now and I am selling his baby things ready for the move. Out with the cot and in with a toddler bed, out with the highchair and the change table and the nursery wardrobe...I actually cried after the first thing was sold as it means my little baby is growing up
