8 Months Old

Dave had his wisdom teeth out last Friday, so Katelyn and I have spent a lot of quality time together the past few days.  Here she is watching the rain:

The scrape on the top of her head is from the DVD player. She had pulled up on something and was a little over-zealous in attempting to walk unassisted. Lesson learned? I don't think so. After she stopped crying, she pulled herself right back up and tried again.

Eating a MumMum. If we're not careful, Baylor will snatch these right out of her hand. Who knew a vegetable-flavored wafer could be so good?

Katelyn's love of Target makes me laugh (and swell with pride!). I'll take her with me on errands to several stores, but she grins and kicks her legs in excitement when we walk into Target. It's so funny because she rarely acts like that in other stores. My little shopping buddy. :)

In the past week we've made major progress on sleeping through the night!! We seemed to have turned a corner right after she turned 8 months old. Some nights are better than others, but lately ALL nights have been a major improvement. Part of our bedtime routine is me singing to her. As I'm rocking her and singing, she becomes uncharacteristically still and has the sweetest, most peaceful smile on her face. Sometimes she will join me with soft "la la la" sounds.  Love. It.  Seriously one of my most treasured moments so far as a parent.
