8 Month Update

My little girl is growing up faster than I'd like. Still is not really crawling, but I think she just doesn't care to put in the work. Unfortunately, I can't help but compare her development to Liam who was crawling by 7 months and saying 2 words by 8 months. But they are sooooo different and there are things Livi does that Liam never did. For example, if I let her she could probably pick up a sandwich and eat it. Swear this girl wants to eat everything. The way she picks up and chews food is amazing to me. But she also has digestive issues so she is stuck eating boring old pureed sweet potatoes and peas for now.

She is still practically perfect (when she is not teething :) She loves watching her brother play and gets a big smile on her face when she sees him or Daddy. She likes taking walks and observing the world around her. She is also much more adventurous than Liam is. She loves the swings at the park and Liam still won't go on those. For some reason, she likes to throw her head backwards and bend her back so she can see everything upside down. It's her happy place. She is getting her eighth tooth right now. She is 27 3/4 inches long and weighs 20 lbs. 12 oz.

I feel like it's going by too the face as she checks out the ducks. Priceless!
