How did this happen?! 8 months already!!? I swear it was yesterday that Dave and I were anxiously waiting for those last few days of my pregnancy with her to finish, so we could meet her…and here she is 8 months old and it feels like the time just flew. I find myself wishing that I could stop time just as it is now, with my sweet boy at 2.5 and my daughter at 8 months…somehow it just seems perfect to me. I know I’ll love all their ages and I am so excited to watch them grow, but I do wish I could bottle this up and revisit it whenever I want. 8 months old is a great age – Siena has discovered crawling, which might possibly be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen when her little hesitant arms and hands hover before taking that next step. She is smiling all the time, laughing, even saying ‘words’ like ca for cat and da for daddy. She is also getting SUPER annoyed with her brother (rightfully so) whenever he gets in her face and aggravates her, which is hilarious to watch. She’s a great eater, a wonderful sleeper, and the epitome of an awesome baby.
I am so thankful that I am these kids’ mommy. I am thankful that I have the best husband I could ever ask for, live in our perfect home, my families’ health, an incredible job, tons of wonderful friends and family – I dont take for granted one single day all that I am blessed with in life. I hope your Thanksgiving is spent with those you love and that you have a wonderful holiday!
