8 months old
Where to begin. Avery you are getting so very big. Everyday you amaze us with something new you have learned. You are still a chunky little monkey just like we like you. You have the plumpest thighs and arms and have rolls all over. You are a beautiful baby inside and out. You are officially into your 9-12 month clothes and fill them out beautifully. You have the face of a perfect little doll and an amazing temperament to go with it. You are so easy going. Thank goodness because it is a rare occasion for you to ever get a day where you get all your feedings and naps on time or at all. I will say though that you have found your voice and are not afraid to use it. Especially when telling your big sisters you have had enough. You are finally taking to the baby food although there are still days when you seem like you could just care less and you still spit a great amount of it out. If you are into eating you grunt and yell if I don't get the next bite to your mouth. Something your dad thinks is hilarious. You are definitely not patient about all things but neither am I so I can't find fault in that. You definitely have a bit of your dads short temper though. Your cry is like no other. And while you don't do it often there is no mistaking it when you do. You have been crawling for a few weeks now and are quite proficient at it. Just this weekend you tackled the task of climbing the one step up into the kitchen. I guess I am going to have to do a better job of keeping the kitchen floor clean because today after a day of sweeping it with your belly you were filthy! You have yet to get the first tooth making you our latest teether ever. I think my favorite thing about you though is your laugh. You laugh like your big sister Ansley, from your belly and as soon as you hear someone laugh you erupt in laughter. It's the cutest thing ever. You love your sisters and they love you. I can't imagine life without you in it. It's hard to believe you have only been with us 8 short months and yet it seems like yesterday I gave birth to you.
