8 Months Old

That's right folks! My Bailey Girl turned 8 months old yesterday. I should have thought about that earlier and I'd say we met family from Alabama to celebrate for dinner. But I didn't. So I can't claim that. But we did indeed meet family from Alabama for dinner yesterday, too! Mom, Dad, Maggie, Bo, Chris, Erin and Andrew met me Sid, and Bailey in Tuscaloosa yesterday afternoon for supper at Lone Star. The food was really good and I think by the looks of the pictures of the table that Erin snapped, we all enjoyed ourselves. I got tickled at the pictures when I loaded them on the computer to look at them. Seems Erin had a little photo shoot with herself at some point. There's like ten pictures of herself that she took making different faces. I don't think Blogger lets you upload more than a few pictures at a time, so we'll see how many show up here and I may have to do another post to finish up the pictures.

But at 8 months old, this is what Bailey is doing: Just yesterday she was laying on her back propped on her poppy pillow drinking some juice and watching TV when she rolled over and then then sat up all by herself. I couldn't believe it. She can pivot around and her bottom and stomach and move all the over the place and is getting up on her feet and hands and rocking, but no crawling yet. She still just has the two teeth. Sleeping hasn't changed much either, still in the bed with us and still having to at least be a patted a few times each night. She will walk if you hold her hands and actually acts like she knows where she is going. She can scoot all the over the place in the walker. She is FINALLY holding her own bottle but usually only does it if she is in a reclining position. She loves juice and her favorite snack has become Yo-Baby Yogurt. (If anyone can find the Yo-Baby 3-in-1 meal thins with the fruit and veggie mixed in, please let me know where. We've looked at our Wal-Mart and local grocery store, in Oneonta at their Wal-Mart, and looked for it at Wal-Mart in Tuscaloosa last night.) Bailey is wearing all different sizes still, some things she can wear 9 months in, some things she can still wear her 6 months in, just depends on what it is. She LOVES LOVES LOVES her daycare. I'm sure she wonders why I kept her held-up at home all summer when she could have been going there everyday! I have had to watch her with the vanilla waffers because she is now trying to put the whole thing in her mouth. Ooopps!! She loves books and will now play with things more than always just trying to put them in her mouth. She loves to go, anywhere, it doesn't matter, and loves to ride in her stroller. This morning going out the door to church she has the biggest smile on her face because we were just going. haha! Speaking of church, she'll have to go to the nursery next Sunday because Sid had to take her out today. It was the first time, but she just tries to talk to the preacher when he's praying. Her reflux is 100% better, not totally gone, but is sooooooooo much better. She will now take about 6 ounces of milk at a time if she is hungry. She is still as high maintenance as ever and we love her so very much.

Here's the past 8 months and, goodness gracious, it's about time to start planning that big 1st birthday party!! Any good ideas? Enjoy the pictures!

Hi! I'm new to your blog...I think I came across it from a comment made on another blog. Anyway, we have a lot in common. I am a teacher- or was, now I'm a stay at home mama. I look forward to getting back to teaching someday. Our girls are just a few months apart too. And, we just moved to another state...and I miss my family terribly. I hope it gets easier! Just thought I'd say hi!
