Maggie is 8 months old today! I can't believe she's so old! (Relatively old, but still.) Cody and I were talking about how it seems like she's really been here forever - I feel like she should be 5 years old by now. But I still want to pause time and have her be my little teeny, tiny baby all the time. Except for the middle of the night. We're sleep training and she is going in spurts of doing fantastic and sleeping all night, to, like last night, screaming for 2 hours straight. That was super fun, by the way.
At 8 months old, Maggie...
*Can clap! As of yesterday!! She was sitting on the floor with Preslie and Charlotte and all of a sudden they started screaming, "she's clapping!!" It was pretty exciting and now I'm thinking her first word will be "Yay!!" Because that's all we say to get her to do her trick.
*Wave, but not on command
*Has two teeth - bottom front two
*Crawls like a mad man
*Pulls up (and sometimes walks along) on all the furniture, and her bed in the middle of the night when she's screaming her head off
*We've decided she definitely has red hair!!! Sooooo excited about this one.
*Loves eating everything EXCEPT baby food (but including any and everything she finds on the ground). I think she doesn't like that there is no texture...maybe because the first food I gave her was pizza crust. Whoops. Cody said I'm ruining her. We're working on it. (Fixing her eating habits - not ruining her)
*Loves her family!! Anytime you say "Hi, Maggie!!" In an excited, high voice, she gives the biggest smiles. Charlotte is the best at it, but I'm still pretty sure I'm her favorite ;)
*Loves loves loves the swings! Cody put her in the swings a few weeks ago and she would not stop laughing. It was the cutest thing I've ever seen!
We love our Mags more than anything and are so happy she's in our lives!!
