8 months

It is that time again...time to reflect on one more month with our sweet baby girl. We are so grateful for the opportunity to be her parents and to get to love on her every day. The pictures are ones that I actually managed to take today, on the right day of the month for once!

This month she has gotten her first two teeth, she giggles and belly laughs almost as much as she smiles, she has learned to roll all the way across the room doing a log roll, she is getting close to learning to crawl, she is able to sit up pretty much as long as she wants, provided we put her in a sitting position, because she can't get up on her own yet, and she tries VERY hard to feed herself. But so far, the only things she manages to feed to herself are wagon wheels and biter biscuits. She still loves all of her veggies, and she is tolerating fruit. She just started meats last week and she loved the chicken and sweet potatos. The ham, pineapple and rice...not so much. We'll see what happens with other meats as we add them.

Her bedtime is 7pm, she wakes up between 6:30 and 7am, and she usually takes a morning nap for 45min to an hour and an afternoon nap for 2-2.5 hours. She wears size 3-6 month in PJs (and those are getting close to being too short) but most of her other clothes are still 0-3 month. She is so skinny! She weighs about 13.5 lbs. My friend Angie's 6 week old baby is the same size as my 8 month old!

Her hair has started growing a little more, but mostly on the top of her head. Brent calls her mohawk baby. I say that she doesn't have a mohawk yet, but that she looks like a kewpie dolll right now. I told my friend Jennifer that she looks like a kewpie doll and Jennifer asked what that is. I found a picture of one on the internet and showed Jennifer. The she told me that I'm right, that is what Samantha looks like right now. We still aren't sure what color hair Samantha will have. She still has most of her newborn hair, which is definitely brown, but the hair underneath appears blond. I guess we will just have to wait and see. Her eyes are still very blue, so we have started thinking that they will probably stay blue.

It has been a great month and we are so happy to be celebrating one more month with our sweet Samantha!

Found your blog through FB. Samantha is SO beautiful!! Our first, Norah, was tiny too. Not the case with Eli...he weighed more at 3 months than Norah did at 1 year!
