Letter to 8 Month Old Gracie June

Dear 8 Month Old Gracie June,
I can't believe 3 fourths of a year has gone by since the first day I held you in my arms! You are the sweetest little girl in the whole wide world! You are just so happy ALL.THE.TIME! I can't imagine life without you in it. Anytime that I'm around you, you make me smile. And I could just kiss your little cheeks for DAYS!

Here are some of your firsts from this month:

You stayed with Nona for 4 days while we took Caycen to Disney World. I know you probably wish that you could go, but trust me, it will be a lot more fun when you get to go when you're 2! You would've been exhausted. But you got to stay with Nona and you loved every minute of it! (and so did she!)

You tasted lemon for the first time, and this is your face:

You started scooting around while you sit up to get places. You're not crawling yet, but you are scooting on your hiney! haha!

You started taking a bath in the big tub instead of your big ducky tub.

You had your first St. Patrick's Day. We didn't really do much, but we had fun anyway. We went to Publix and you loved sitting in the cart with Caycen (until he started trying to tell you how to drive and pushing you).

Things you're loving:
Oh my goodness you love the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show so much! If it's on your are glued to the t.v.! It's so cute! And of course you love your little Minnie Mouse that Caycen brought back from Disney World for you.

You are sleeping so good!!! You usually take a short nap in the morning, a 2 hour nap in the afternoon, then your bedtime is around 8:30 at night. On the weedays, I usually wake you up at 6:30 to eat and get ready, but on the weekends you've been sleeping until about 7:45!!! I LOVE IT!

You love to eat too! You are still eating about 5 ounces and you have baby food twice a day.

You love trying to clap, music, eating, watching Caycen play, snuggling, sleeping, giggling, watching Sugar run around on the carpet, pulling hair, playing with your feet, taking baths, drinking sips of water from Mommy's cup, and SMILING at everyone!

I just love that I get to be your Mommy and have you as my little blessing!!!! I can't wait to see what you do this month :)

I love you baby girl!!!
