Eight Months

Miss S is two-thirds of a year old!  She loves to play peek-a-boo, and will put things (or her fists) on her forehead and peek out from underneath with a big grin.  She eats a bit of solid food now, and particularly likes banana chunks.  She's a cheerful baby who loves to babble and shriek and blow raspberries.  Her family gets to see that side of her - strangers, not so much.  I think to them she is serious.  If anyone tries to talk to her she'll just stare at them blankly.  And check to see that Mommy is still close by. 
She doesn't like to be held by anyone but Mommy or Daddy.  Everyone else is too scary, apparently.  She knows the words kiss, (leans forward for one) bath, (evokes a huge grin) where are you? (during peekaboo) and Daddy.  She still dislikes tummy time.  It will be a while before she learns to crawl. ;)

Wow, she is getting so big. When at first glance I saw that you posted, I thought it was a picture of Asher. Boy do they ever look the same! Can't wait to see you all this summer. Love Alicia
