I have an 8 month old baby girl! WHAT!?! Facebook reminded me the other day of my bump photo from last year. It feels like yesterday, and yet, here we are with an 8 month old baby girl! Hudson is such a laid back, happy girl (during the day at least).She's also very very very busy. She has two older siblings to keep up with, and she isn't going to let anything slow her down. Right after she turned 7 months she started really crawling. What was her motivation you ask? Paper. Yup, this girl loves paper. Just before she turned 8 months she started pulling up like it was no big deal. She's walking around holding onto her little table. She also likes holding onto her walker with one hand. She loves reading books. And her siblings love reading to her. But if left alone (which is rare around here), she will flip pages back and forth, back and forth. I hope I have another one who loves to read as much as I do!Becoming an 8 month old baby girl also meant clapping all. the. time. She really loves clapping while eating. She gets super excited sitting in her chair. Usually Milo or Sawyer eggs her on and starts clapping too. To go along with pulling up, she loves standing and "walking" with mommy or daddy. She's not very stable, but she loves to try.
Slow down baby girl, your first year is going WAY TOO FAST!
But with the holidays here, I'm so excited to be watching (and photographing) her first Thanksgiving and her first Christmas. Milo was just about the same age for his first holiday season and it was so magical. So it will be fun to see her in action this year. I'm sure she will at least try to eat all of the wrapping paper, and maybe even climb up the tree!
