8 Months Old

Wow 8 months already...

-  C.S. figured out moving forward last Thursday, the same day her big sister started Kindergarten. She is sliding on her belly full speed now so nothing on the floor is safe. She has some kind of radar for electrical cords so I've been busy trying to distract her from all the cords that can't be moved.

- The top teeth are on the way in. C.S. has been sleeping extra horribly for the last week and has been extra clingy. I couldn't figure out why, then I saw 2 little holes in her gums yesterday morning. They haven't broken through yet, but they are coming, fast I hope. Not that I'm looking forward to being bitten with those teeth, I just want my happy baby back.

- I am a mommy zombie. Knowing the reason for the lack of sleep helps a little, but it still hurts. I keep doing things that don't make sense but then I can't even remember what happened. In the latest incident I registered D and C.S. for swimming lessons 3 weeks ago, but either I didn't remember which day D's lessons were or I registered for the wrong day. I have no idea which it is, but when D.G. took D for what I thought was her lesson on Saturday, she wasn't registered in the class. Oops. I guess I should be using D's time at school for naps, but there's just some much to get done around the house (and so much blogging to do.)

I tried to get our monthly picture, but someone had other ideas...

"C., sweetie, smile for Mama"

What's this?

 What's D doing over there?

 Ooh, what's back there?

Hey, I can put my feet over here!

Is there something else back there now?

 So we gave up and had supper. Apparently blowing shepherds pie out her nose makes her much happier than posing for pictures.

How is she 8 months already? I think I missed months 5, 6 and 7 somehow. She is just adorable. And I hear you on the zombie brain thing.

Big Love, Big Acceptance - or so I say said...

Love it! :)
