The whole counting your age with the dice thing ... great idea when you were just a wee infant. Now they have posed quite the choking hazard. Exhibit A below. haha
I had to get creative...
I spy 2 little dice...haha
8 months old. Let's see if we can dig in these memory banks! Well, it was your first Christmas. You flew on a plane to Oregon and wooed every flight attendant and fellow child traveler with your social ways and cuteness. You are an amazing traveler! While in Oregon you met a lot of family members including 2 other 2nd cousins born within 2 months of you. You also got to see your cousins again!
(Grammy and Grampy with all the great grandkids. 4 years ago there were only 2! Now there are 9!)
Christmas is so much fun now that you are here! So magical. I can't wait to spend it with you in the years to come.
You've been sitting up for some time but you are definitely able to sit independently now without me feeling like I should "hover".
You babble and your favorite sound is "g". You have such a sweet voice.
You are most definitely into "solid" foods.
You tried a lot of new foods while we were in Portland including puffs. Now puffs are one of your favorites, your pincer grasp is developing right along.
You got a lot of fun new toys for Christmas and this month you took an interest in playing BY YOURSELF for quite a while. You are so cute to watch and sometimes I just want to read your mind.
You continue to be an ABSOLUTE JOY! As 2012 came to an end, your daddy and I looked on this past year and were amazed at how having you has changed our lives in the most fabulous way!
