Happy 8 Months

Lyla Faith Morris we love you more and more everyday!!!

What have you been up to this past month:
Weight - about 18lbs
Size 6-9 months and a lot of 12 month clothes (you little chunk)
Size 3 diaper

You are sleeping almost every other night through the night from about 7-6

You take your bottles really well at daycare and you nurse before bed and during the weekends.

You haven't wanted many solids since you were sick but you usually eat Yogurt or cereal for breakfast, a yogurt fruit/veggie mix for lunch and a fruit and veggie for dinner.

You weren't a big fan of the juice I gave you, you would rather have water...guess you get that from your Gigi :)

You still love your jumper but you don't stay in there as long as you used to.

You also will sit in your bumbo if we pile your toys around you to play with.

Still NO crawling but I know that she will get there eventually. You roll all over the place to get things you want and get up on her hands and then knees, just can't get them going together yet.

You have turned into a MOMMA's girl over the past few weeks after being so sick, it makes me happy and sad at the same time because your daddy wants to bad to love on you at times and you are not having it.

You can say Dada, Mama, Papa and Hey..we still swear you say dog sometimes and you will try and wave bye bye and you will mouth it like a whisper when we are leaving somewhere and I say it first. You always say it loud AFTER I hang up the phone with your Gigi after we have tried forever to get you to talk with her.

They call you Nosey Rosie at daycare because they said you ALWAYS have to know what is going on...whether it is what the bigger kiddos are doing or who is coming in and out of the door.

You are a camera hog..when I show you pictures or videos of yourself you think you are makes me laugh but your daddy always sings the song "you're so vain..ha"

You still love Zeus and just laugh and laugh at him and you really don't know what to think about Mason since he hasn't been around in awhile.

You still love your Baby Einstein videos and will stop whatever you are doing if someone starts singing on the TV.
We think you are cutting some more teeth which is why you are being so fussy here lately (at least we hope that is what it is)

We are finally getting your little eye fixed in two weeks (I am nervous and happy at the same time)

I love getting home or picking you up in the afternoons from daycare and seeing how excited you get when you see me..makes my heart melt!!

You light up our world each day and we thank God that he has blessed us with you. Your daddy and I love you to the moon and back!!!

Weeks 3-5

I am so far behind on blogging..Between getting back into the routine of work (getting up early and getting two of us out of the house by 6:30, back on a schedule, craziness at entire other problem within itself, open house, lesson plans, and the list goes on and on) I at times don't know which way is up or down. With that Lyla was fighting off yet another ear infection from starting daycare and we finally have that under control now we are just waiting to see the eye doctor next week about her clogged tear duct. It is getting better each week with balancing work and home but it is still a constant battle of where are my twelve sticky notes with my to do lists on them. :) So I am catching up today with our days of the week with all of her super cute outfits and even better facial expressions in each photo. I make sure we have that one minute in the mornings so I can snap a picture of her so that I can remember what each of these days were like because she is growing so fast and I know my days of keeping her still are numbered..ha!!

I am so glad that I decided to do this...not for the fact that this kiddo has way to many clothes just for the fact that these memories will be with us forever! She is such a blessing to our lives and we love her more and more each day. Her personality grows each day and as much as I don't want her to grow up on me I can't wait to see what amazing things she will accomplish as she gets older.
