A (Couple of) Days Late and a Dollar Short

On February 19th Isabella turned 8 months old. Crazy huh? The reason I'm so late with the post is that I couldn't find the card reader thingy that I use to upload the pictures. Eventually it turned the bottom of my towel hamper. I can't even imagine how it got there, but that's just par for the course.

So anyway, my little boobala is getting to be such a big girl. She started eating table food. She loves scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, steamed carrots, and meatballs. She's tolerant of blueberries, but don't go anywhere near her with an avocado. She sleeps from 7pm-6am. Once in a while she throws us a bone and sleeps till 7 and other times she'll screw us and wake up at 5. She has 2 teeth. She's kind of inbetween sizes. 9 months stuff is getting a little snug, but the 12 month stuff is swimming on her. We're about to move her up to size 4 diapers.

She's still not a fan of crawling. She can get from a sitting position to her belly and from her belly to a sitting position. She's in kind of a licking phase. She licks everything. Her books, her toys, her monitor (because she pulls it down now), it's would be really gross if her tongue weren't so cute. She gives kisses, which are really more like sloppy wet licks, but she knows to go for your lips. And she'll clap hands, when she's in the mood.

She's getting to have such a little personality. It's pretty strong too. She's getting over her stranger anxiety too. We were at a party recently and she let me pass her around and she even smiled and laughed at strangers.

We took her to the aquarium last week and she studied those fish like it was her job. She loved it! She's at such a fun age. I think this might be my favorite stage so far!
