Things I know now that I am 8 months old

Christmas was very stressful…all of those new faces, smells, people trying to hold me…it was just too much and I‘m so glad it‘s over.

I can now wave 'bye-bye' and play 'pat-a-cake.' I like to demonstrate these new moves when no one expects it, and then not do them when my parents want me to show someone.

My sisters fight over me and I think it’s totally awesome.

My mom can sit me down and I will play with my toys, only she is not allowed to leave my sight…ever.

I see absolutely no reason for you to have to clean my ears or my nose; a little ear wax and snot never hurt anyone.

Speaking of snot, have you seen my latest snot bubbles?! They are true works of art, just ask my brothers.

If my mother ever hopes to sleep again, she needs to quit fighting it and just hold me all night. When/if I decide to sleep alone, I’ll be sure to let her know.

I’ve concluded that ice cream is one of the greatest inventions ever; it ranks right up there with mocha frappuccino whip, grits with sugar, and my Daddy’s pancakes.

Nope, not crawling and not planning on it. Why bother? You guys already get me everything I need.

My mommy gets all teary-eyed every time she writes a new “Things I know” post. Yeah, she’s wimpy, but goshdarnit, she loves me!

Oh, and could you please do something about that four-year-old you call my brother?! UGH!

Love that last picture, it is so my little guy...in a shirt and underwear only. I can't get him to stay dressed for nothing. It's so nice to see that I'm not alone here. I miss having babies around, too cute!

Still the cutest baby ever! You should tell her to slow down now, though... she is growing way too quick!
I am completely envious of you, sleepless nights and all! I would love to have a baby to snug up and hold all night again!! I have 10 bio kids (youngest is 8 now) and I sure loved having those babies around!

Awww. She is getting so big. Those sleepless nights are just around the corner for me. Can't wait....
Her eyes are really remarkable. I imagine she gets EVERYTHING she wants with those!

Linda,
I am absolutely sure I will feel the same as you when she's bigger...missing all the baby snuggles. I am envious of you having all those babies! I just wish I was younger because I would have six more.
Stay warm where you are.

Abbie,
I hope you get to feeling better soon...you've been sick a while. Take some vitamins girl! LOL!
