8 months

At 8 months old, my dear sweet Libs
  • has 8 teeth
  • crawls with her tummy off the ground
  • follows me around the house like a puppy dog
  • still tries to eat everything she can get her hands on
  • pulls herself up to a kneeling position
  • occasionally pulls herself up to standing
  • thinks it's hilarious when I dance ( is)
  • plays hide and seek - she covers her face with a blanket, (usually) waits for us to say "where's Libby?" and pulls it down
  • is totally entranced by the computer and printer
  • says Momma - Jared and I debate whether she is actually saying Momma or just making M sounds, but I think she says it with purpose. She usually says it when she is hanging on to my leg begging me to pick her up.
  • goes to bed at 7 PM and gets up between 6 and 7 AM, which would be totally awesome except for those 2-3 night wakings. We're dragging her crib out to the living room these days (so she's not in the same room as us) and it really helped the first couple of nights, but no such luck since then. I keep hearing these horror stories about babies who don't sleep through the night until they are 3 or 4 years old and it makes me want to crawl in a hole to even think that that could happen. Oh Sleep Fairy, please come visit us this month!
  • goes on hikes in the backpack carrier
  • just generally adorable. Love you, Libs.


  1. She's doing such big things! So fun!

  2. That first photo is totally are the others. I feel your pain on the sleep issue. It took A. a long time. He was over a year old. Even now, he usually wakes up to come get in bed with us in the middle of the night.

  3. Aw, precious. I LOVE this age! Birth to about 18 months is the best, in my opinion. Then they get sassy :)

  4. My husband and I like to go on hikes, too. That little backpack carrier will be perfect when we have children. You have a beautiful baby girl!
