Lilly is 8 Months Old...

Better late than never!!

You are EIGHT months old now! WOW this first year is going by entirely too fast!

Your Pops and Meme bought you a wagon this month, and you have LOVED riding in it!

Your sweet little personality has really started to shine, and we've decided that you are a very laid back baby!

You still go to bed around 6:30 every night and sleep until around 7:00 in the morning. I have started to realize how little time I have left in the "baby" stage, so sometimes I go into your nursery around 10:00 at night and just rock you, love on you, and pray for you. It's become my new favorite thing to do. You are the BEST snuggle buddy. I hope you let me rock you FOREVER :)

You tried puffs for the first time this month, and you did not know what to think. You made the funniest expressions.

You also had your first taste of meat this month, and you HATED it! You were making all kinds of noises "fussing" at me!

This was your first Halloween, and we took you to the Parkway Trunk-or-Treat. You had a blast, and you loved wearing your cupcake costume.

You ate cotton candy for the first time, and you LOVED it! I'm thinking you are going to have a sweet tooth like Daddy :)

You loved all of your friends riding in your wagon!

You are getting to be a BIG girl! You wear mostly 12 and 18 month clothes and a size 3 diaper. You weigh a little over 20 pounds and are VERY long!

You love saying Dada, Bye Bye, and (occasionally) Mama!

You met your cousin, Emmitt, this month. You didn't just love him, which surprised me because he is much smaller than Chaucer. I think he just moves faster and it scares you!

You love to play "office" with all of Daddy's papers in his office.

You are so precious, Lilly. Daddy and I have smiled more than we ever thought was possible in these last eight months. You bring so much joy to our lives, and we look forward to what you will do next month! We love you SO MUCH!
Mommy :)
