Showing off how she stands on her own now. Not very safe when she's on a chair and I am three feet away taking pictures.
Trying to dive over the front of the chair. Eight months is a really great stage. Brynlee's personality is developing more and more each day. She is so curious and fascinated with her surroundings, particularly outdoors. Some of the tricks she's learned since last month:
going from the laying position to sitting upright,
pulling herself up to furniture,
feeding herself cheerios,
laughing herself silly when we tickle her neck or make funny noises,
drinking from a straw and a sippy cup,
saying little words like "Mama" "Gaga" "Baba",
mimicking noises that we make to her,
somehow finding hidden paper in every room and sneaking it into her mouth,
and signing her name in cursive.
She is just way more MOBILE lately, and much better at communicating. She's our little buddy and we love her more and more each day!
