Arwen Mae - Eight Months

Yes, it is true. You say Dadada much much more than anything else. Here is proof. (Note that I stopped to film this, no car accidents here!) 

As for movement, you get up on your hands and knees and move forward mostly. You like to 'crawl' on the couch and your crib, not so much on the floor. When you are 'crawling', you put your face into the ground, push your butt in the air and move forward. One day I put you down in front of the stove to make you a bottle and I looked down and you were closer to the stove! You got so excited to see your reflection, you butt scooted your way towards the "baby in the stove". More proof.

The most exciting thing that has happened this month is your first real snow! You weren't too pleased, but you liked it better when we took you out later this month. You didn't mind the snow falling on your head and daddy took you sledding (but that's for next month's recap ;) ).

The least exciting part of this month was your first fever!! Daddy and mama were sick first and we knew you were getting the same thing as you were super cuddly. As it got later, your cheeks turned bright red like a clown and you started to get super fussy. We checked your temp and it was 101.7 and called the doctor. Just FYI - babies start getting fussy and uncomfortable once they hit 101/101.5. At least, that is what our pediatrician said. It was, as others have told me, so cute, but so sad at the same time. 

Daddy and I look at each other pretty much every day in disbelief of how big you are. You, my munchkin, my chickadee, my chicken, my baby girl are so incredibly special and so SO loved.
