Once again another month has quickly passed us by. Amelia actually turned 8 mos on the 29th of November, but I didn't have any current pictures to show you. So here we are about a week late. She doesn't mind.
The little booger has been growing up a lot lately. She's eating like a champ (nothin' new), she has two top teeth (finally) and two bottom teeth. Now she can chew lots of things including carpet pad, which she found under the rug this morning. I guess she was checking under there for a toy and found something so much more fun! Her jump-a-roo and cheerios and peas are her favorite past time. Oh. Wait, way to pass time I mean. She has a nice shriek going too. She practices it pretty much any time she doesn't like something. And sometimes just for good measure. It's loud. She also learned to crawl last week. Now she's chasing us all over the house so she can remind us that we are leaving her out whenever we aren't holding her. One problem she still has is getting stuck under the furniture as she slides backwards on the hard wood floors. She practices her shriek while she does these two things, too.
If it sounds like I'm not very happy with her it's because she won't let me sleep. Her shriek comes in handy in the night as well. Mostly at inopportune times, like when I've just finally fallen asleep. Should she still be doing this at 8 months old? Cause I personally think she needs to practice sleeping all night long. I mean really! What can she possibly think she's missing out on when it's pitch black and we're not even doing anything exciting.
But seriously, she's such a little chumpkin. (Daddy's word) We really wouldn't be happy without her, but if you want to send something for Christmas, could you please send sleep?
