A sampling of things that are going on and around.

8 months

I could easily launch into a “where has the time gone” speech but I’ll spare you.  The first year is going by terribly fast, just like everyone says.

New things for 8 month-old Baby A:

  • Clapping.  First time on her 8-month birthday.
  • Five teeth.  Fifth came in over the weekend (May 15, 2010).
  • Crawling over or under almost anything.  Like under the wall in a changing room (shopping alone just got harder).
  • Eating a decent amount of baby food.  Instead of 3 or 4 bites.
  • Crying when D or I leave the room, i.e. separation anxiety.  Fun!
  • Standing in her crib and see over the top rail.   So she can pull on her mobile now.
  • Eating some real food, and actually doing it quite well.  Teeth are a big help.

I’m sure I’m forgetting at least a few things.  One of her new fun activities is pulling the dish towels off their rack.  And balancing herself precariously on furniture, sometimes one-handed.

This week we’ve stayed at home more since we all are sick and baby A has a runny nose.  We take walks when the apartment gets boring.

It’s been a cool year for Europe so far, so even though it’s May, we are still dressing like this:

Every day she understands more.  It’s amazing to see her figure things out, and to find new things to laugh at.  She is still a happy baby, or good humored, as D’s mother always says.  Today, balancing a soft toy on her head makes her crack up.

We love you baby A!
