8 months old!

Dear Alice,
Again, where has the time gone? 
You're growing and changing each day. 
While it's fun, it's also a little sad. 
What happened to my tiny newborn?

Things you like:
Being in the stroller
Playing with Daddy
Strings, especially the strings on your boots
Eating puffs and other solid foods

Things you don't like:
Being held by anyone but Daddy or me
Pureed foods
Diaper changes
Clothing changes
Having your hair washed

(You look so old in the picture above!)

You're still pretty petite compared to other babies your age.
(Complete strangers love to tell me how small you are. 
I think they're trying to give me a complex.)
You're the perfect size!
Still very portable. :)

You have quite the little personality!
It's fun seeing you communicate and express your preferences. 
Recently, you say, "nuh, nuh, nuh, nuh" when you're mad. 
It's almost like you're saying, " no, no, no, no". 
You also say "da-da" all. the. time. 
Still no "mama", but I'm being patient. 

You're not crawling, but you're getting close. 
I'm hoping you'll wait until after Christmas to start. 
Maybe we can have one more tree spared from little hands?
Still no teeth. 
I'm really, really okay with that. 

Your sleeping has improved drastically from last month. 
Thank you!
You now wake up once or twice during the night. 
I can handle that. 

You are precious, Alice Claire.
You make our lives so fun!
We love you very much.

Your Mommy

Oh my goodness!! That first photo needs the caption "Santy Clause, why? Why are you taking our Christmas Tree... why?"
She's adorable and absolutely the perfect little bite-sized package of cuteness!
