8 Months

Today Maggie is eight months old. This age is a fun one. She's able to play with her toys independently and is curious about the world around her. She loves to stare at people and usually gives them a sweet smile. Her favorite word, and only word so far, is mama ma mamamam mamama mama. Music to my ears. She enjoys spending time in her Bjorn and loves seeing the sights and cruising in her stroller. She rolls around on the floor and is almost ready to crawl. She gets to her knees and jumps, hops or rocks back and forth, unsure of what to do next. I haven't told her that she's preparing to crawl and have offered nothing in the way of encouragement or praise for nearly doing such a thing. I'm not ready to be a mom of a crawler. Just not ready.

Happy 2/3 of a year birthday, Maggie! We love you.

Maggie is going to be going all over the place soon. You'll get lots of exercise.

She is a doll - naturally,
