Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

8 months

Maggie turned 8 months on August 27th.  Months 7-8 were more big months for her.  She is cutting her top two teeth and possibly some more.  She can now go from sitting to laying down and back up to sitting.  I looked in during nap time one day and saw her sitting up on her own.  I ran in quickly and laid her back down and then lowered the bed when she woke up.  She is getting around a little but not crawling.  She is getting up on all fours and rocking back and forth but hasn't moved forward yet.  She still loves food and enjoys eating with us at meal time.  She takes 2 naps a day.  One nap is usually short and one nap is longer.  She still sleeps awesome at night.  She had another ear infection which makes at least #5.  She was so happy though that the doctor didn't believe she had one until he looked in and said it looked terrible.  She is still very laid back and just goes with the flow.  The best baby!

Things she loves:

-her brothers!!!
-her daddy and mommy
-smiles from others
-bath time
-being on the diaper changing table
-sitting up
-her teething toys like Sophie
-her fingers

Things she doesn't love:

-being hot (which is difficult since we live in Memphis)

She weighed 18.9 at the doctor the other day.  

Some pictures of our sweet girl!

Miller stood over her and dropped the 8 when I told him too because as soon as she grabbed it she would rip it apart.

She also tried to eat it numerous times.IMG_9102
Still can't believe I have 2 blue eyed babies.  IMG_9105

My littlest guy decided to lay down next to her.  He cracks me up!IMG_9109
I adore these 2.  He is so good with her and truly loves her with his whole heart.IMG_9112
He wanted to hold her hand and keep her still because she kept flipping over.  IMG_9114 IMG_9116 IMG_9117
Happy 8 months baby girl!  We can't imagine life without you in it.  You truly make life so much sweeter.
