8 months!

I can't believe how big this girl is getting. Her fun personality just keeps getting better. She is still happy all the time and so content to just sit and watch everyone around her. She is getting to be really vocal and we all love the sound of her little voice. Max loves to growl at her and she has started growling back. It's just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. It can entertain us for hours. 

She is getting a little chubby and her cheeks keep getting bigger. I love to kiss and squish them. She is really ticklish on her sides and neck. It's the best way to get some big laughs from her. 

She still eats anything you put in front of her. I think her top front teeth are really close to coming in because she chews on everything and rubs her gums on anything she can. 

She had her first non check up with the doctor. She suddenly started coughing a really strange sounding cough one night and by the next day she was having a hard time breathing. We took her in and she had croup. They gave her some steroids and she got better so fast that it was almost unbelievable. 

She is still not even close to trying to crawl but she is getting better at being on her belly for a few minutes at a time. She's going to be a really late crawler but I'm ok with that. It's easier that way. :)
