Nora is 8 months old. She weighed only 17 pounds 11.5 ounces when I brought her in to the clinic becuase she was crabby and pulling at her ears (doctor said her ears look beautiful.....so she is just crabby!!!!)
feeding herself with adult food -she tried to put my whole special k bar in her mouth one day
trying to pull herself up on furniture -I went to check on her during one of her naps and she was standing up in her crib walking around, she saw me and got scared and fell over and needed some hugging to ease her pain
her daddy -he gets home from work and then needs 'a snack, to go to the bathroom, and to change' and from the moment he leaves her she cries until he gets back downstairs to play with her
crawling -she can get around so fast now and gets pretty excited that she can get places on her own
smiling for the camera -she knows what the 'big lights' are all about and most of the time starts smiling when the camera comes out.
babbling - she is really good at saying dadadadad but no mmmmm's yet (so no mamamama yet!)
sleeping -she has been sleeping all night long from 7:15-7:30pm until 8:30-9am. I think she is going through a growth spurt. I am loving being able to wake up in the morning and have a little alone time and to be able to brush my teeth before noon! Even though she is sleeping so much at night, she is still taking good naps! It really is too good to be true!
