8 Months... Wait! Where'd the time go??

Lucy Olivia

Today Lucy is 8 months old! 8 months going on 8 years... Seriously! She is such a special little girl and everything she does just blows me away!

At 8 months she:

•Is 28in and 19lbs!
•Has 2 teeth!!
•Sleeps through the night 8pm to 7:30am - amazing!
•Takes 2 naps a day - one at 10am and one at 2pm - like clock work!
•Eats all sorts of yummy food - cauliflower puree and peach smoothies are her FAV!
•Lovs Dora the Explorer! Watches it every morning while drinking her juice!
•Eats YoBaby yogurt for breakfast every morning - peach and banana are her favorite!
•Is obsessed with turning the iHome on and off - and turning up the volume :-)
•Sits herself up and can steady herself - even if she is about to fall!
•Is crawling EVERYWHERE!! Even up stairs - she's made it up 6 stairs so far!
•Still LOVES her binky!
Can pick up anything!! She has really mastered the pincer grasp!
Can feed herself - Cheerios, wheat puffs, yogurt melts, and Bananas!
Loves to play with the "baby" in the mirror!
Talks up a strom - she says: Dada, Yaya (Yia yia - grandmother), Mama, Upup (puppy), Yah, Uh-oh, Hi, and my personal favorite: Ok! We'll say, "Hi Lucy! I love you!" and she'll say, "Ok!" back - SO CUTE!
Loves to go to the pool - she is such a water baby!
Likes to sit on the on the edge of the pool and "jump" to us - really she just let herself fall in!
Can pull herself up on anything! She can even balance, once up, while holding on with only 1 hand!
Likes to walk, while holding on, all the way around the ottoman in the family room!
Loves to change the channels on the TV - we have to hide the remote!
Wears 9 month clothing and size "2" infant shoes - but never keeps her shoes on!
Loves to dance with her Yia yia - they are sooo silly!
Loves to read books - Her favorite is Alien Al! She will turn the pages for you :-)
Likes to go for walks in her "big girl" stroller!
Has been on 3 road trips and an airplane ride to San Diego - such a good traveler!
Has so much fun playing with other babies - especially her boyfriend, Mason :-)
Had her first ear infection this weekend :-( I hope she never gets another one!
Is the happiest, friendliest, most loving baby in the world!! We are SO lucky!!

Love you so much little monkey! You're such a big girl already!
