Anyway, I took some pics with the point and shoot.
Here she is! Our big, beautiful girl :)
Silly little girl, she LOVES to blow raspberries recently
And I love her little dimple so much!
Things I love about Ellie at 8 months, and things she's learning:
She gets soooooo excited about things, she shakes her head back and forth and just kicks her legs like crazy, she just can't contain her excitement when she sees something fun!
I love how she just sits taps her feet when she's on her belly playing.
I love how often as she's crawling, or in crawling position just playing, she sticks her bum up in the air and plays so she's just balanced on her feet and hands. Kinds like a monkey :) Hard to explain what I mean...but it's so cute :) Maybe I'll include a video.
I LOVE that she has a name for me. She calls me Nih-Nuh. Quite often if I leave the room, or when people come over and she gets nervous, she calls for me. It makes my little heart SO happy!
She eats like a champ. She can eat a lot of food, especially recently. I think she's in the middle of a growth spurt. Recently, She loves squash and the blueberry/apple combo.
She likes plastic cups, mom's chap-stick the straps on the diaper bag,her car seat, and anything that's not meant to be a toy better than her toys.
She's learning to wave, she flaps her hand towards herself every once in a while
I love her big, gummy, loving, sincere and abundant smiles :)
I love her little tiny tooth that's starting to interrupt that gummy smile, but I'll love it even more when it's done causing discomfort!!!!
I love that she sings with me! Anytime I start singing to her, she jumps in and starts singing along! She loves singing time, she gets SO EXCITED before singing time in primary each week! (Yes, Ben and I teach Primary now.)
My favorite song to sing to her is "Heeeeey, hey baby, I wanna knoooow if you'll be my girl". She likes to sing the Hey's with me, she's pretty darn good at it. It sounds just like a Hey!
Also, as of this week, she has learned to pull herself up to standing, and as of today, she has learned to open drawers! We're in trouble now! She seems to be at a peak time of separation anxiety, she hates when I leave a room or when visitors come. She also is developing object permanence, which makes sense to me that these two things hit at once.
