Emilia is 8 months

My baby girl is 8 months and growing. This has seriously been the fastest year of our lives. It's so funny to me that when I am pregnant it seems that time is not going anywhere fast and then the baby comes out and time just flies by.

I love doing these monthly videos of her every month. I also love that the boys always want to join in. Here is her 8th month video.
She went through so many milestone this month. She started crawling and moving around the house chasing her brothers. As if that was not enough, she also started pulling up to a stand. This little girl will be running after her brother in no time.

When I started doing her shoot, she was wearing a onesie but she kept standing so I thought she was ready for a dress :). Gosh, my baby is wearing a dress, this is never going to get old
Baby girl is the queen of funny faces. She is so expressive all the time. I love making faces and talking to her because she totally hams it up and seems to be responding to my antics. I just love it
Does she have the sweetest smile or what. Her whole faces lights up when she is happy
I love the smiles that show her teeth the best. Her cheeks are just so juicy, gosh I love her so.
Her two top teeth popped through right before she turned 8 months. You can't actually see them but you can definitely feel them. She's had a running nose and cough for a few days now and I think it could be from the cold weather and these teeth. I hope she feels better soon.
Baby girl is completely done nursing. I gave up on trying and I just pump exclusively now. Though I don't love pumping so much without the rewards of nursing, I make so much milk that I can't justify giving up now. I'll keep it up until she is 1 or I just don't feel like doing it anymore.
She is also eating more pureed food regularly. Oh hi baby girl, I am talking about you and your precious self

She has been so mobile this month and we are loving it. She can move all over the house comfortably now. We are getting a new gate for our stairs. Her favorite thing has been to stand. At first her legs were just so weak but eventually she got stronger. She always makes such a serious face when she is standing

There she is going back down. She can stand for really long periods of time too
Even though she was not feeling her best, she was still so happy. I just love that she is such a happy and chill baby. She is such a joy to be around.

This was so funny, she was attempting to crawl and I snapped a picture. It looks like she is doing push ups, hehehehe, we start them young :).
I still can't believe that she is standing like a big girl all the time now. I was just bringing her home yesterday you guys

Happy 8 months to our baby girl, words cannot express how proud we are of her right now. She is doing so well with all her milestones. She is a happy baby and makes us all so happy everyday. We love you to the moon and back baby girl.

  1. Awww...Happy 8 months princess!!! I love her determined look. I know the feeling about pumping. Not fun but when you're making so much milk, it can be a challenging decision to make. You're doing great momma!
