eight months

i love this chubby ball of eight month love. but how can you not love this girl?
here is what she's up to these days (i have to write this or i will forget and wish i had later):
*she just cut her first tooth this weekend and got her six month shots so she has been a little less than her smiley self and a bit more clingy to mom that i like, but she is so sweet. and she still loves that thumb
*she's given up "the worm" and started really crawling about a week ago.
*she started clapping which is so funny because she doesn't open her left hand when she claps, but does it whenever you say "yea ivy!" and she's working on her waving, if she does not do it when velzy wants her to, velzy makes her wave and she things it's funny.
*she is a pig and gets upset if you are eating and she is not, so she is really into cheerios, mum mum's, and those gerber star puff things.
and did i mention i love her? i do. a lot.

She's alreaday 8 months!?! She's still as cute as ever. I completely understand the writing things down so you don't forget cause Jon and I are kicking ourselves in the bum for not doing that this past year. OH, and I love the new family pictures.

That is such an awesome shot! Those girls of your are adorable. I bet you have a lot of fun with them. Wow, eight months goes by so fast!

I love the picture of Ivy and Luke. It's one that they'll treasure forever. I can't believe that she's 8 months old already. I think that she probably has the perfect tummy for a raspberry.

Those are great photos! I really like the one of you and Velz. Aaron and I had a baby craving in church last week and we were really wishing you guys were here. ;) Your kids are so darn cute!
