8 Months

(July 14th, 2013)

Today you turned 8 months! Where has the time gone? Before we know it you will be 1! 
We sure do love our Livey Girl! 

- After enjoying months of sleeping through the night, you started waking up 1 or 2 times a night crying.
- Started teething and Mom can see your bottom right tooth under your gums. That is why you have been waking up the last few nights.
- You are wearing mostly 6 - 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
- Mom and Dad left you with your first teenage babysitter while they went to the Temple with Ayrika and the rest of the family.
- Since Mom stopped working you don't take bottles very well anymore.
- For 2 weeks you went to swimming lessons with Mom at Lindon pool. You loved laying on your back, playing with the toys, and trying to blow bubbles.
- Took your first bath in the kitchen sink.
- Celebrated your first 4th of July.
- Went to Lake Powell with Mom and the rest of Mom's family while Dad stayed home and studied for his Pharmacy boards.
- While we were there, you wore your life jacket and went boating. You loved swimming in your float, and played with Mom's cousins Dillon and Addison.
- Went on another trip with Mom and Aunt Andrea to St. George for a couple days. We swam, shopped, and ate.
- You are starting to pull up on things around the house and love to pull up on Mom's legs.
- When Mom is folding the laundry you like to help.
- You go to bed between 7:30 - 9, and wake up between 6:30 -8:00. You nurse after waking up and play for an hour. Then you take your first nap which is between 1 and 2 hours. We play until 1 or 2 and then you take another 2 hour nap.
- You are talking more and more each day. You say dadadadadada the most and a few times ma ma. But for the most part you just talk gibberish.
- Dad has been working long hours and when he walks in the door you clap and show that you are excited to see him.
- You are getting close to crawling. You rock up on your knees and then lay on your belly, but there is not too much of a forward motion. You can scoot backwards and turn to the side.
