8 months old

Miss Makayla turned 8 months yesterday. Its gone fast. I knew it would. It went fast with Aiden and time is going even faster with Makayla. So what is Miss Makayla up to these days you ask? Well here's a small list to satisfy you curious readers.
-She is so very close to crawling. She can get up on all fours but she can't figure out how to move forward. She rocks back and forth and then scoots backwards.
-As of yesterday she can now get herself into a sitting position from her tummy.
-As of Saturday she started feeding herself puffs. I'm really excited about this because it keeps her more entertained at the dinner table and another few weeks and I'll be able to give her some table food.
-She sleeps all night (generally) from 8pm to 6am. She likes to eat at 6am and then go back to sleep until around 8am. Although this morning she slept til almost 9am.
-She loves to squeal and can reach pitches I didn't know were possible.
-Makayla absolutely loves her brother (Aiden is a bit taken with Makayla as well). She LOVES it when he jumps up and down to make her laugh. And to my surprise she thinks its funny when Aiden gives her a crushing hug, clobbering her over and making a Makayla sandwich between the floor and himself.
-Makayla plays really well with toys. Unless she's tired or hungry I can plop her down in the middle of a bunch of toys and she can keep herself entertained for quite a while.
-She enjoys riding in a stroller, whether it be shopping or jogging. She likes to look around and take everything in.
-She is in love with her daddy, giggling when he walks in the room.
-She has one tooth and the second looks like it will be through today or tomorrow.

Makayla is a joy to us. We thank God for both of our children everyday.
