She is 8 1/2 months old now. She's been crawling for three months, and only gets faster every day. I'm convinced that her main goal in life thus far is to join the bishop on the stand in Church. She squirms and whines and pushes against us when we try to have her sit on our laps. She nose dives off the bench when we try to sit her between us. And, she throws her toys in disgust if we try to keep her occupied. Then, when we're distracted fetching toys or apologizing to those sitting near us, she takes off! She books it down the aisle and up the stairs to the pulpit. Needless to say, one of us always goes after her and spends the rest of the service out in the halls. 8 1/2 months old and we haven't sat through a whole sacrament meeting yet! She is just so determined and stubborn and so very strong willed!
Her favorite food is quinoa and her favorite baby food is squash. She is currently getting her second bottom tooth in. She loves noisy toys and walking along side furniture. Recently, she has begun to share; she tries to stick her pacifier in our mouths. She claps and smiles and giggles when we tickle her. She isn't shy at all. In fact, she will push against me and cry to be let down and then crawl into the laps of visiting neighbors and friends. I have one friend who has a baby boy, and my little girl gets so jealous when she holds her son.
She keeps us so busy! And we wouldn't have it any other way! Love that little girl so much.
