I can't believe you are 8 months old already! Where has the time gone?
What a beautiful baby you are ......so happy.
You always have a smile on your face.....from the moment you wake.
You have a cheeky little personality starting to develop....you love to grab all the things your not supposed to have.....especially your brothers toys!
You pull some really funny faces sometimes, and you know they make us laugh so you do it
....your such a dag.

You are sitting up by yourself now.
You are also on the move!....not crawling as such....but rolling everywhere.
It's so funny to watch....you can roll so fast!
Just in the last few days you have started to get up on your knees and toes, while using your arms comando style to get things that are out of your reach....
so I'm sure it wont be long until you are crawling properly.
You idolize your big brother.......
You wait for him to notice you so you can give him smiles that almost break your face!
You love to snuggle up with him in his bed when the bed time story is being read.......and although you get a little impatient about the page turning, he is patient with you.
|Swimming at Cairns.
You LOVE food!
Any food....it doesn't matter what!
You have just worked out that the stuff Mum and Dad have on their plates is food....and it tastes yummier than your bland old baby food!
You love to taste everything.
|Piper tasting her first won-ton.
You do have a temper hidden under all those smiles and it only usually comes out when food doesn't arrive fast enough....or God forbid......food is taken away from you.....
Then you let rip with lots of yelling and leg kicking..
....but most of the time you are happy.
|Tasting her first spaghetti.
You have started talking.....
You can say "Ga-Ga"....the name you gave your dolly.....
You can say "Dad-Dad"....much to Daddy's delight....
You can say "Bub-Bub"......
And today....for the first time...you said "MUM-MUM"!!
It melted my heart.
As my last baby, I had planned on keeping you a baby forever.......
........I wasn't going to teach you to talk.........
....or sit.....or crawl......
...but.......there is no stopping you.
You are a darling girl and we love you so very much. You are so very special.

Love Mum xx
