Joelle is now 8 months old....my how time flies! Here is her list of accomplishments:
*She has been to 9 states and one foreign country (Canada).
*She has been on 12 airplane rides.
*She eats from a spoon very well. She loves fruits and cereals the best.
*She can successfully pick up cheerios with her fingers and put them in her mouth.
*She sits up to play and grabs toys out of baskets.
*She "creeps" on the floor....not quite crawling yet.
*No teeth yet.
*Hair is growing, just a little hard to see.
*She is still in her bucket car seat and can probably last a few more months.
*She LOVES listening to daddy play his guitar (she even holds the egg shaker and is the percussion section).
*She still sucks her thumb and plays with the pacifier.
*She loves to smile and laugh and sometimes scrunches up her face and laughs by blowing air in and out of her nose (I need to get a video camera to show it...it's so cute!).
*She still wears 6 month clothes and even some 3 month clothes.
*She loves to laugh at the dogs.
*She rubs her eyes when she's tired.
*She takes 3 naps a day and sleeps 11 hours at night. That totally makes up for the first 8 weeks of one hour asleep and 1 hour awake...that was terrible!
