Happy 8 Months Hope!

Hopey and her Birthday Lamby


"YIKES! I am 8 months old already?"


"I am as cute as they come...eat your hearts out!"


"Mom, I am pretty sure I am outgrowing this tub...please just admit I am becoming a big girl and let me sit all the way in the sink!" PS Could she look any more like Ben than she does here?


"YUM YUM, Baby MUM MUM!"


I can hardly believe it, but my baby girl is 8 months old today! She is doing great and we love her to pieces!

Here is a little bit about what Miss Hope is up to these days:

She is sitting up all on her own and only topples over occasionally

She still pretty much rejects ALL baby food, despite the fact that Mommy even tried making her own.

She could live on Cheerios. :)

She still refuses to take a bottle.

She is still TOOTHLESS, but I am convinced she will be popping six teeth through all at once!

She can wave bye bye and it melts my heart.

She says mamamamamama and dadadadadada

She LOVES to stick her tongue out!

She is finally loving her baths most of the time.

She has NO interest in crawling since she has two little boys (and two parents) trained to jump at her beckon call. (and let's be honest...I am in NO hurry to chase her AND Ben!)

She is wearing 6-9 month clothes (except for the few FAVORITE 3-6 month sleepers mommy keeps stuffing her in)

She definitely prefers her cloth diapers.

She no longer will keep a hat or bow headband on for long but doesn't mess with the bow in the hair.

She has started sleeping in her crib for naps!

She spends the majority of each day in a sling on mommy's hip! (so why am I not buff?)

She is precious, Kristy!! I can't believe she's 8 months old already. I've been following your blog for a while now--long before Hope was born. Keep enjoying those little ones.

We call our Hope, Hopie too. She sure is getting big and I love that her hair is red! There is just something about a red head.
