finley & landry {eight months}



as you can tell, with crawlers, pictures are no longer as easy as they use to be 


finley marie



your feet are tiny and narrow like mommies and you cross them like this whenever you lay on your belly
you look like such a big girl sitting like this. i love it!
i love you hair in the picture. its beautiful!

at eight months, you:

weigh 14 lbs 10 oz
wear size 3 diapers
are in 9 month stuff but still some 6 month stuff
are on Similac for Fussiness & Gas and drink anywhere from 8-9 oz every 4-5 hours
you are now eating puffs and LOVE them!
you are also eating solids twice a day when mommy and daddy eat, you think you should eat
sleep about 10-11 hours at night
are BUSY. it amazes me how you go from laying to crawling to sitting to crawling to standing. it seems like you never slow down. 
you are finally crawling on all fours. 
you have become such a strong willed baby, stubborn, determined, hard-headed. . . . the list could go on
we have nicknamed you 'sassy'
you are saying 'mama' 'dada' bahbah'
you will wave 'bye bye'
you talk non-stop from the second you wake up to the second you go to sleep
have become very attached to your 'lovie'
you moved to a convertible carseat this month

this is your new 'face' 
you spend lots of time 'studying' things
you love your doggie

at eight months, you:
weigh 14 lbs 15 oz
wear size 3 diapers
are in 9 month stuff but still some 6 month stuff
are now on Similac for Fussiness & Gas and drink anywhere from 8-12 oz every 4-5 hours
you are now eating puffs and LOVE them!
you are also eating solids twice a day 
you still love anything with bananas
sleep about 10-11 hours at night
are BUSY. it amazes me how you go from laying to crawling to sitting to crawling to standing. it seems like you never slow down. you are crawling super fast now. it amazes me
i think you will be walking within the next 2-3 months
are not quite as chatty as your sister (mainly because i think you can't get a word in with as chatty as she is) but when you get to talking you are quite the talker too
you moved to a convertible carseat this month


your guys favorite toys are you v-tech table, dancing bear sit to stand, alphabet train, chuck dump truck and your talking bear
you guys both love to get in the bath tub and get excited but cry when its time to wash and get out
you guys have started to fall in love with Sampson, he's just now warming up to you guys some


Babies, my how it seems like you guys have changed so quickly. I feel like you are no longer babies, i feel like you guys are going into more of a toddler stage. It makes me sad and happy all at the same time. You are both busy movers and shakers and while some days it absolutely wears me out I am so thankful that you guys have been developing normally and are healthy 8 month olds. Somedays I think I am more tired at the end of the day than I was when you were newborns. We have started listening to music some during the day and you love to dance around in mommies arms. Its one of my favorite times of the day. My most favorite time that I spend with you guys in the morning is when you first wake up. You are so excited to see mommy when she walks in your room. It melts my heart everyday. I will never get tired of seeing that excitement. We have been blessed that you are both extremely happy babies. You very rarely ever fuss unless you are sleepy or hungry and then its very little because mommy knows your cues. I love you the amazing individual personalities you both have developed. I also love the bond you are creating together everyday. I pray you are the best of friends. I pray that you know how much your daddy and I love you. We treasure every single moment we have to spend with you.
