8 months old!

Dulany is 8 months old today!

some new things about her...

she is starting to like veggies now.. even though its cause i have to put some applesauce in about everything (peas, greenbeans, squash).

she's laughing more and more each day and babbles. She'll only say mamma now when shes upset. sad day! we're working on dada now.

she does amazing going to sleep. she gets a bath, eats, bedtime story and we can put her down awake and she puts herself to sleep. No more swaddling at all! we're finally back on a schedule with ehr for the daytime with naps which means she's sleeping in later (no more 5 am wakings like after christmas!)

she has started to fall asleep on her side/belly... note picture.

she rolls ALL over the place. she perfers to roll than to crawl. (i put her on her belly to crawl, bam right back to rolling over)

She LOVES to stand. sometimes we'll try to sit her on the floor and she just wants to stand. so we'll sit with her and let her stand.. she;'s been able to stand for a total of about 12 seconds at the longest. She's too funny. She loves to stand next to her exersaucer while playing too.

so who needs crawling right? i wish. We're working on crawling but she just doesnt seem to want to do it. we'll keep going at it though...(thats why i dont really like going to a married student ward.. which means tons of babies, which means tons of kids to compare your kid too. which isnt good)

anywho, here are a few pictures from today/yesterday and a few videos.

here is a video of her figuring our she can use her foot to spin the toy. i thought it was kinda funny.

here is a video of her trying to get my camera. and when tom tries to put her on the floor to try to crawl to it, nope, she just rolls. thats what she does all the time.

here is a video of her just talking and saying "im 8 months old!"

here is another video of her playing with her tights. i could do this all day long at church to keep her occupied and happy.. she just laughs and laughs.

ok one last video. her standing up on her exersaucer. I had another video where she stands for a little bit when she let go, but i accidently deleted it.. whoops!

here are som pictures! notice the stinkin cute green sweater that grandma roseanne got her while we were in oregon.

I love how she is always trying to grab the camera and she is so cute in her church dress! She does really well at standing...maybe she'll just be a walker!

So cute!! I love her dress in those pictures with that little sweater. I can't believe that she is 8 months already!! She is looking so big.

BTW, you do know that Tommy never really crawled and walked at 10 months right? Like father, Like Daughter?? :) She is on her own time line. Every baby is different and she is doing just fine. I hate when people compare their kids - especially in a Student Ward!! :)

I miss her so much!! Thanks for posting those pictures and videos. I can't believe she is starting to stand like that!!! Pretty impressive. I love hearing her "talk" too. Give her hugs and kisses from me. Love you guys.

Dulany is seriously so darling! Thanks for helping me with my blogging issues. I struggle with basically anything on the computer.
