8 Months and a Whole Lot of Attitude!

Today, Kaileigh turned eight months old! She is growing by leaps and bounds these days. As of Last week, she learned how to crawl! We had to lure her with sweet potato puffs, but she did it nevertheless! We have seen, however, that she is not that fond of crawling, at least not yet. She would much rather make a fuss until you pick her up or just hand her the snack! Haha - hmmm... I wonder where she gets that stubborn streak?!? Also, she is starting to pull herself up! It is still at the beginning stages, as she starts to bounce once she is up and her balance just can't handle that! In addition to these physical achievements, Kai is starting to talk - she says "Mama" "Nana" and a bunch of other un-spellable phrases. She just says these things in general, unfortunatly not calling me "Mama." Kaileigh's hair has also continued to grow - we have officially achieved ponytail status!
Nik and I are also doing great! We are working very hard and alternating schedules working and being home with the baby! We may not see each other too much - but Kaileigh see's us all the time and that is what matters the most! I put out our fall decorations this weekend - even though you can't tell it is fall yet. I would love to buy some mums, but it is just not season yet, still way too hot. Boo! I can't wait for Halloween to come so we can dress Kaileigh up and go trick-or-treating with our friends!

Here are some pictures of Kaileigh in the past week - all smiles!
So serious !
Ponytail and Smiles!
All cozy and ready for bed!

And, here I come!


  1. YAY for being able to crawl and to talking! I can't believe how much she is learning in such a small amount of time. It is really amazing to read about all of these milestones and I bet it is really cool to watch! I LOVE YOU!
