Yep, that's right folks....your eyes do not deceive you....our little Magster is......
8 MONTHS OLD!!!!!
So what has Maggie-Love been up to this month?
-Clapping, not exactly new, but sometimes you do it when you're excited or happy, or mimicking us
- Rolling all over the place and on both sides. In the morning or after naps, we have no idea where we will find you. (Although lately it is mostly parked right in front of the mobile. You love your mobile and have even mastered turning it on yourself. You either bang it with your pacifier and kick it until it turns on....you are resourceful.)
-You love The Little Gym. Every week you seem to master some new skill, like catching bubbles or pushing up on the bars. This week you were so excited and happy, your giggling and clapping were infectious. You made me so proud.
- You are still a bouncing queen. You love your jumper and your exersaucer.
- Tummy time is becoming more enjoyable and you can spend more time there. You kick your legs so fervently, like you really want to get somewhere and you occasionally put your knee up and you are a pro at pushing up on your arms.
-You love to play the "Sigh Game", which involves you sighing and then we mimic you and then you sigh again and we mimic you again, and back and forth. Sometimes you like to do this for awhile and sometimes you get tired of it quickly.
- You are eating your bottle a lot better this month and we realized the problem was that the nipple wasn't fast enough for you. (Hope you didn't inherit Mommy's vacuum eating style...)
Unfortunately right now you seem to have a little cold and it seems to be upsetting you at night. You go to sleep fine, but the last two nights when Mommy goes to check on you before she goes to bed, you wake up very upset and it takes us some time to get you back to bed. Your nose is so stuffy that we have to use the nasal aspirator and you HATE it. Daddy has to hold you while Mommy suctions and you cry the ENTIRE time. It is absolutely heartbreaking. We are really hoping that tonight is better.
Other than that little silly, you are a marvel. Everyday I look at you and I can't believe you are mine. How did we ever get so lucky??? Your smile just melts me every. single. time.
And now on to more pictures.....
Hope you are having a stupendous Sunday!
