8 months...35 weeks :)

Miya turned 8 months old on the 29th, and I can't believe how time has flown by. I look at her and am amazed by how she is growing and changing. She is up on all fours attempting to crawl, but it looks more like she is doing the "worm". She almost does belly flops as she attempts to propel herself forward. She is definitely getting more proficient in being up on all fours, so I think it's only a matter of time before she is all over the place! (which I will still admit I am in no hurry for!)

She also is all about fingerfoods these days. She has never been a fan of purees even from the beginning, which has made starting solids interesting! She wants everything we eat and she is a very...enthusiastic eater :) As soon as we sit her in her highchair she screams demanding food, and when the food is gone she cries hysterically as if the world has come to an end, yes that is our drama queen! She still has no teeth, but gums everything! She has eagerly eaten everything we have given her, which has been a big surprise. She even likes things we eat...like lentil casserole! She loves her food.

She loves getting out, it's so funny to watch her excitement as we leave our place and head out for a walk or to visit friends, seriously this girl is so content to just be out the house no matter where we go! She is a big fan of the grocery store too.

I was laughing when I got an email that said "your 35 week old" I thought "wow it's been so long since I marked Miya's age by weeks!". And I realized that in a few weeks Miya will have been in our world longer than she was in my belly. I just can't get over how quickly time is passing, and I can honestly say it is such a joy watching her grow before our eyes!

Our girl on thanksgiving...

Silly girl looked up at me right as we were taking it, it's very hard to get a picture with all of us looking at the camera anymore!
