8 months

Abigail,
You’re turned 8 months today. I’m still having days where I’m like “wow I’m a mom. The past months have been a mix of emotions from doubt to excitement to thrill to fear to happiness and a bunch of other things. It hasn’t been a smooth sailing road but I’m learning to be thankful in everything. Yes EVERYTHING includes even the bad 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. I must say, as you have grown, so have I. They say learning never stops and it’s true. It never does.

When it comes to solid food, your progress is still slow. Somedays you do well. Others you don’t really want to know. It’s okay considering that you drink well and like yoghurt.

A couple of weeks back, you started hitting major milestones. You stopped crawling on your belly military style and started using your knees. Some days it’s hard to keep up with you. You only settle when you want to sleep and you rest for a few minutes and are back at it again.

You’re doing well with your attempts to stand you hold on to stuff and people and stand while holding on. Your legs are strong because you do this for a good period of time.

Your second tooth is on the surface now. So exciting except when you use them to bite me then that hurts. But that’s not everyday.

Ah your screaming competition, you’re still the reigning champion in that department. I can’t match you. Maybe another baby out there can but I’ve decided to not try.

Seems you feel stuff from your mouth. Stuff still ends up in your mouth. I know it’s a phase that you’ll grow out of in a year or so but it’s something unnerving still. Especially now that you crawl. Who knows what you’ll find along the way.

You’re an outdoorsy type of girl an this is so exciting to me because of all the outside adventures we’re going to have. I’m so excited. Truth be told some of bestest things happen when you’re outside.

Your freaking out at new people has reduced greatly. You only get fidgety when you’re tired and sleepy. Which I perfectly understand. Yes it still takes a lot of hard work to get you to smile for them and the camera as well.

You’re cool words like maama. It’s not talking but we’re getting there. You don’t really direct it to anyone in particular but you seem to like saying it. Ps I love it.

I am so excited for the adventures this new month is bringing our way. It’s gonna be sweet.
You’re awesome Abigail and as perfect as can be. Always remember you are loved by me and a whole lot of other really cool people. Above all, you’re love by you’re heavenly father.
