8 Months

Happy 8 months! You turned 8 months old on a special day, Easter. This past month you have changed more than any other. I can't believe how big you're getting! You have two new teeth on the bottom now, you can sit up much better on your own, you say "mama" ALL the time which I love, you have tried some more new foods and seem to like sweet potatoes the best so far(but you're picky and much prefer the real food, not the jars) you sit in a big girl car seat in the car and love to see out the window and "talk" to big sister, and you grab everything in sight. I can't believe how much difference a month makes! You simply complete our family. Your sweet, laid back and go with the flow personality is wonderful. You are always up for something fun and you're great about catching naps on the go. You love car rides, Praise Baby DVDs, playing with sister, mommy's phone, laughing at daddy when he is silly, chewing on anything and everything, being outside, and being sang to. I sing you "the baby" song every night just like I do for your sister and you just love it, seems to calm you and put you right to sleep as soon as you hit the crib. You are a great sleeper and have started to sleep much later just like big sis, yay!! You go to bed around 7 and get up at 9. You still wake one to two times in that time period to nurse. I honestly don't mind waking to feed you cause it's just part of the job for me and sleeping late is a good trade off! My favorite things about you at this age are how much you LOVE to be held and cuddled, I seriously think you would be super content to be on my hip all day long and never do anything else. I also love how you smile constantly and get so tickled by Avery. You can really tell how much you love her already. I couldn't go a minute without you in my world. I love you so much sweet girl!! Being a mommy to you and Avery is pure joy. I'll love you forever and as long as I'm living, my baby you'll be!
Love, Mommy

Oh I just love your sweet letter to her. I have written letters to my children on the birthdays over the years I am happy to be blogging now so they are more preserved than a piece of paper. Adalyn will cherish this in years to come. I love the sweet pics
