8 Months

I am trying to just enjoy my baby. My last baby. I am trying not to think about how far behind the other kids she is. I am trying not to focus on the fact that she just recently mastered sitting, when the other kids were crawling and standing at this stage. I try to ignore her lack of teeth, when her brother and sisters had 4-6 teeth at 8 months, and were done with baby food.

It's hard to forget about all that stuff. But I am trying.

Today she had a banana muffin for breakfast.

With a side of apple juice.

Just like her brother and sisters.

And half of it ended up on the floor...just like her sister.
She sits, she rolls and she scoots in her walker. She babbles, sometimes non-stop. She screams when someone takes away her toy. She loves bathtime and splashes in the water. She would rather feed herself than have anyone shove a spoon at her. She is finally eating her half and half bottles. She giggles and plays with anyone who gets close enough. She loves snuggling ET's stuffed dog in her bed...and maybe chewing on his nose a little. She wakes up happy from naps about 90% of the time. She goes down happy for naps 75% of the time.
Maybe she's just giving me a little more time with my last baby.
I'll take it!

I'd take it too! It is so nice when they stay little longer!

That is exactly what I was thinking while reading the first part of this entry....that she is just staying a baby a little bit longer for you....letting you enjoy your very last baby.

I'd say for your last one, she's pretty awesome. I hope my next one is as awesome as she is. You know-- that it sleep and all that good stuff. Ru says thanks for more pics of No-nah.
