My sweet 8 month old Hannah! Wow....it sure has gone fast. You are starting to show us your little personality more and more. You are still very content most of the time making sure to tell us if you are tired or hungry. You love to let us know you are here and "talk" to us (more screeching than talking). You are starting to make lala dada sounds and love to play with your tongue. I wonder if you will talk as soon as your sister.
You still love your bottle. You're starting to tolerate baby food better, but still not thrilled with food. You like pears, apples and bananas best and are starting to take a little water from a sippy cup.
You grab hold of anything you can get your hands on and put it straight in your mouth. You especially love to pull hair.
Poor baby had an ear infection the entire time we were on vacation. You were such a trooper and still acted like your happy self most of the time. The only way I knew something was wrong was because you kept waking at night for hours at a time which is not like you at all. You nap 2 to 3 times a day for an hour to and hour and a half each time. At night you are sleeping from 6:30 at night to about 6:30 in the morning (when you aren't sick). I have found you sleeping on your tummy a few times this past week, but you get mad when you wake and find yourself lying that way.
You are sitting so well and just play with all the toys around you. You especially love the little yellow ring that you have in your mouth in every picture. We have to watch you carefully while you sit because you still throw yourself backward sometimes. You roll over sometimes, but really DO NOT like being your tummy. Mostly you just roll from side to side to get to toys while you lying down. I love that you are content to just sit for now. You are alot like your brother in that respect.
You love to lay your head on my chest while I rock and sing to you before bed. I could sit that way for hours with you. I love it. You look up at me and just listen to each word melting my heart.
Love you so much, Hannah Beth.
