My Sweet Baby Girl,
It seems like you are growing up in a flash! I can hardly believe you are eight months old. I know I probably say that every month, but every month it's true. Before I know it you will be a year old, walking, talking and doing all kinds of new things. I am so proud of you. You say Mama and Dada now like you understand what it means. You also say it just because and have entire conversations where all the words are Mama and Dada. You sometimes wave bye bye and you are losing your stranger anxiety for the most part. You warm up to people more quickly - female people anyway. You are still afraid of strange men, but I think that is a good thing. Recently you have been getting very excited to see Daddy when he comes home from work and it is so cute. You smile so big and throw your arms up for him to pick you up. Today you practically jumped up and down in your walker when Daddy came through the door. You are working on getting up on your hands and knees and rocking back and forth. I'm sure you will be crawling before we know it. Right now you only know how to go in reverse in your walker and you scoot yourself backwards on your butt when you are sitting on the floor. I'm sure you will figure out how to move forward soon. I love you Sweet Girl!
