I have an 8 month old. Say what?! Yes. An 8 month old. 8 months ago Ellie was just a little ball of joy inside my belly. I don't know how time flies that fast.
Here are just a few things that are new with Ellie.
+ She is a professional roller now. The instant you put her to sleep on her back she flips over. And, if she wants something out of her reach she will sometimes roll over to get it (and sometimes just stare at it and wish it would come to her). This includes the bathtub and my arms. It's pretty amazing.
|See it?! Just a little glimpse.|
+ The past month she has become pretty mom-clingy. She's even started to reach out for me. It's cute and sad all at the same time. Especially when I just want to put her down to get things done. If only all moms had four arms. Thank goodness for our Boba carrier!
+ She eats a lot more solid foods now. It makes me more weary of the days when we'll be weaning from breastfeeding. Which, by the way, is such a beautiful and relaxing thing when you aren't worrying about life's stresses.
