8 Months

My Sweet Angel,

8 months, I really can't believe that it has been a whole eight months since you entered our lives. And such a blessing it has been. You are not an "angel" every day but you are definitely a keeper.

You sure have been busy this past month with all your learning and growing.

You have started clapping this month. We are giving the credit for teaching you this new skill to your Great Aunt Sarah because when we were visiting her in B.C. she was singing and clapping for you and you started clapping right back at her. It was just such a precious moment.

This month you have come have come a long way with your crawling. It started shortly after your 7 month mark you started to do the army crawl. You did that for a for about a week or two, then you started to get up on your heads and knees, then you started to rock when you were on all fours which made me think that you would start crawling at any moment. Then a funny thing instead of starting to crawl you decided that do some yoga was more important and you started to do a downward dog pose. It was so funny, to watch you rock back and forth and then go into your pose. But finally after a few days you started to crawl, you were a little slow and shaky but I sure that you will get stronger and faster with each day that goes by.


This past month due to your lack/very little weight gain your pediatrician recommend that I offer you some formula after I nurse you. Well you loved the formula, and I can tell that you are starting to prefer the bottle as it is starting to become a fight every time I try and nurse you. I'm starting to think that you won't be breastfeeding for that much longer which does break my heart a little bit. But the most important thing is that you are happy and healthy and if that mean you are taking only formula then I'm glad.

Each month it is a joy and a pleasure to see you continue to learn and grow. With each smile, each giggle, and even with each tear I love you more and more. I feel so honored to be your Mother and I hope that I can lead and guide you to become that beautiful women that I know you are.

Again I look forward to the next month and seeing the new ways that you will continue to amaze me.
