Dear Willow (8 Months)

Dear Willow,

You actually turned eight months last week but I have been such a slacker on the blog scene :s. The older you get the more your personality starts to shine. You are so hilarious and very feisty! This past month we have had visitors out every weekend so you have been snuggled & spoiled by many.

At eight months...

- We can't plop you on the ground and trust that you will be in the exact same spot if we leave the room for a second. You are a rolling machine!

- You haven't learned how to crawl just yet but you get up on all fours and do the rocking motion (we call it the happy humper)

- You went to Grandpa & Grandma's house once a week this month.

- You spent one whole week at Glamma & Pop Pop's house with me

- Your favourite words are mamamama, daddadadaa, and bababababa.

- You like to sleep with ducky.

- Your favourite foods are peas, cheerios & pears.

- You are such a great eater
- We just learned today that you are allergic to eggs. We thought we would let you try a couple pieces of egg and you really enjoyed it. But then we noticed right away that you immediately started breaking out in hives. We quickly wiped your face and hands down and gave you lots of water. And to the hospital we went. The plows hadn't made it out on the roads yet so we had to travel relatively slow. What a scare! The doctor told us to go and get some benadryl and to keep an eye on you for the next 24 hours. Before bed you broke out in a couple of more hives. Hopefully you will feel better tomorrow! The doctor made an allergy test appointment for us.

- You are getting better at feeding yourself.

- You are an expert jolly jumper. You love a big audience to show this off.

- You are starting to make strange with people

- You wear size 3 diapers.

- For clothes you are in 6-9,6-12, 9 & 12 months

- You popped your first tooth! It's on the bottom right.

-You are not a very good sleeper. You wake at around 10pm, 2:30am, 5am and up for the day at 7am.

- You are very ticklish

- You have the best personality! You are so funny and love to laugh

- When you are tired or hungry, watch out!

- You weigh approx 22lbs

- You don't miss a thing, you turn your head at any sound and you are very curious.

- You are still breastfed except for your feeding before bed.

- You love to clap your hands, give kisses, wave hi, and give high fives 

These pictures are from the last month :)

This is when you were first mastering the art of picking up things. You are now an old pro and LOVE your Cheerios

Morning playtimes in your nest

Trying so hard

Great-Grandpa and Willow xo

Hanging with your friends Grace & Carter

This frightens me

We love you to the moon and back Willow Rae xoxoxoxoxoox


  1. Love her outfits! And the photo of her crawling and lying down with her 3 friends, gosh too cute! :D

  2. Willow rae is soooo soooo cute! Lucy just hit eight months too and she's not crawling yet, but trying hard :) She also turns her head at anything new and looks immediately at whatever we are looking at, very curious and studious indeed. Our morning playtime nest looks a lot like that....cover those corners, pillows everywhere, she will roll, lunge, stoop, and now even pull herself up like that last photo there, oh yeah, scary! What a sweet bundle you are Willow. You can't go wrong with that amazing personality and that adorable face :)


Yessss, I love comments! Thank You xo
