Another month has passed and my Tay Tay May is now 8 months OLD! This is a big deal, folks!! 8 month olds are awesome! She is turning into a little person that is full of personality and cuteness!
What is Taylor up to these days??
Well, she is all about playing! She’ll sit on the floor and entertain herself by digging through her basket of toys. She’ll take each one out, play with it, and then go in for the next. She’s giving big, juicy kisses now too! She grabbed my face recently to lay a wet one on me…. that was priceless! Taylor is full of sounds. I’m pretty sure she is going to be a jabber mouth. We are SO close to getting a “mama” out her. It’s coming… SOON! Taylor is waving (mostly with her left hand) and totally gets when to use it. She smiles and waves hello and it is so sweet!
I hear all the time what an easy sweet baby she is. People really can’t believe how good she is! Since I have nothing to compare her to, I just take everyone’s word for it and enjoy every minute of it! I have so much fun hanging with my girl! She just goes with the flow and enjoys life! I am SO BLESSED! She reminds of that every day.
Tay sleeps about 11-12 hours at night and takes a few short naps during the day. She doesn’t really have one set nap time and I’m not sure if I need to work on establishing that or do I just stick with what works for her?
She’s drinking four 6-7 oz. bottles and eating two meals per day. At her 11 o’clock bottle, she has yogurt (sometimes with fruit) and for dinner she has about 3-4 baby food cubes. She’s loved everything she’s eaten so far except avocados. I was surprised at that. I am going to offer them to her again soon to see if her opinion on them changes. Avocados are so good, she doesn’t know what she is missing!
Taylor is happily sitting up and not looking to crawl just yet. She doesn’t have any reason to crawl since she has everything she needs right by her, so I am savoring her remaining immobile days. Oh, and still no teefers! I swear she has been cutting them for 5 months now, but still nothing. I’m guessing she’ll get a bunch all at once – that should be a fun week!
She is such a good sport in putting up with for our monthly photo shoots that include a few wardrobe changes. She’s even a trooper when I have her stripped down to her diaper outside in January. Before you turn me in for that, remember, it is Florida and was practically 80 degrees today! :)
I really don’t know what I am doing with photography, but I enjoy it and she makes any picture look great!
Oh, Taylor Baby, you sure do light up my world, and everyone else that knows you for that matter! It has been a blissful 8 months with you and I look forward to every other moment with you! I love you more than words can say!
