8 is Great!

I think all of the Christmas hustle and bustle caused this 8th month to whir by in a flash. Laney is getting so big. PLEASE let me bore with a few details. Pretty please? Great, thanks!

  • she started clapping her hands, although she only moves one hand when she claps.
  • she started waving some
  • she clicks her tongue and loves it when we click back
  • she says "da da da da da" regardless of how hard I try to have her repeat "ma ma ma ma"
  • as soon as we got back from Christmas break, Laney could pick up cheerios (which she LOVES) and put them successfully in her mouth. What a difference a week makes!
  • she can NOW roll over from her belly to her back...unassisted! Woohoo!
  • she has started eating the equivalent of 1 small jar of baby food plus some oatmeal and cheerios in one sitting.
  • she graduated from her infant carrier to a "big girl" convertible car seat.
  • tooth #5 started to cut through, making a very cranky little princess.
  • and when we took her to the ER the day after Christmas, she weighed in at 21 pounds.

Happy 8th Month Birthday, Alayna!

What a sweet little lady! She's getting so big, and definitely full of personality. Miss you.
