8 months!

Our little girl just turned 8 months! It has been like a whole pregnancy already! I didn't realize how much faster it would be with two kids. I feel like time is just flying by! Sometimes I am glad though because there are days I just can't wait to be over.

Taryn is starting to learn her fine motor skills. She is starting to get better at feeding herself. She hasn't learned to pick it off the tray yet, but I can give it to her and she will put it in her mouth. She has learned how to clap with her hands and feet. Kind of funny that it is her feet too. She loves to say 'dada' and 'baba'. She is still working on sitting up. She is still struggling with that for some reason. We practice everyday since 6 months and she still struggles. Oh well. She is finally standing up better. I don't have to support her 100%. I am hoping the same will happen with sitting up.

I am still happy that she is content with just laying on her back though. There are other kids her age that are already crawling. I am so happy she isn't. I know it will be fun when she does, but right now I am not ready. We still don't have teeth either, but I am sure that is close. I still love the gummy smiles anyways.

She still loves big brother and he still loves her. It is fun to watch them interact, even though she gets beat up from him. I sure hope they remain close.

I can't believe she is 8 months already! Time definitely has gone by quickly! Love the new picture of her. She is definitely a cutie!
