8 months already?

i have no official stats to report. havey has been sick, sick, sick yet still happy, happy, happy.

weight: less that at six months! the poor girl wouldn't eat for two days when she was sick...but she's back in action eating more solids than ever and loving her rice husks.

length: who knows, but she is long

teeth: no. not even signs of them.

crawling: not sure what she's doing, but she looks like a little rock climber when she stretches out to get where she wants to go. she pushes up on her toes and puts a leg out to the side to direct herself. and boy, she gets mad at me when i try to bend her legs for her.

i love this girl. she's a smile-slut and will give her biggest and best smiles to anyone who will look at her. it's a smile that you can't help but smile back at. stevie calls it the football face: she scrunches her nose up so that her cheeks follow. they're so chubby that they push out to the sides while she simultaneously pulls her little tiny chin up and out. her left eyebrow does a little dance and she makes a happy little coo. it kills me.

I love the way you describe her crawling and scrunchie face - makes me feel better about missing the real life version. She is so stinkin' cute. Happy 8 months! I can't believe they are getting so old already! Before you know it she will be shoving cake in her face.

So cute! My son does the same nose scrunchie thing - we call it his tough guy face. Babies are the best. I can't believe she still doesn't have teeth!

Oh yeah, and yes, I'm in Utah now! It would be fun to meet you in person some time!

I CANNOT believe she is 8 months. I swear she just exited the womb. She is so darling. Sorry I'm a horrible commenter. I never did properly thank you for giving me a blog award :). You are too sweet.
