8 and Great!

We're getting this one in while Lizzy is still 8 months old (barely)...things are well, busy around here. I think I should just say things are normal around here because I believe we'll be busy for the next 20 years or so. 

Lizzy has fully recovered from November-itis and her various viruses and infections that came with it and is having a blast these days. 

She plays SO WELL on her own and is happy, happy, happy most all of the time. She just moved into a size 4 diaper, weighs about 23 pounds and is in 18 Month clothes and a size 5 shoe. 

In the last 2 weeks or so she has learned to wave bye-bye and mastered clapping. She is soooo proud of herself when she claps. She's cute and she definitely knows it. She loves attention from anyone and often puts on a little show of smiling and jabbering and clapping OR she hides and cries for Mommy. She is basically totally unpredictable. 

She makes this funny face with her tongue pointing straight up ALL THE TIME! 

Mealtimes are all over the place--she's started eating finger foods (gerber graduates pasta and fruit pickups cut up, cheerios, puffs, etc.) will eat some table food and some baby food and yogurt. She's kind of a diva particular when it comes to temperatures--not too hot, not too cold--just right.

She squeals and jabbers all of the time, but no real words--just mimicking Jay--whom she ADORES. Good times all around!!

She is all about the Christmas trees and will scooch, roll, crawl, grunt, and reach until she's about to pull them down on top of her--which, thankfully, has not happened (yet, knock on wood). 

We'll go to her 9 month checkup next week and I just can't believe it!
