8 months

Our little princess is 8 months old today! How time flies! I still can't believe it... But here is a quick update for you all... She got another tooth in on saturday. She'll probably be crawling in 2 weeks, before we get to Michigan. I think she had grown about 3 inches in the last couple weeks (okay - slight exaggeration, but seriously - I think it has to be at least an inch...) She still doesn't like to eat solid foods. I gave her some banana today thinking that she might like that better than the dry textured stuff, but she gagged over the banana too. Goofy girl. Well, that's all I can think of for now. I forgot to get pictures of her today while awake, so here are some of her sleeping.... :)
Miss Long Legs herself - all scooched up to the corner of the bed. I had to move the sensor for the monitor up to the top portion of the bed because she kept rolling herself up there and then the matress wasn't touching the monitor sensor and the dang alarm was going off 4 or 5 times a night! The good news - she's been sleeping through the night about 4 or 5 nights a weeks!!! :) *knock on wood*
Puppy pillow.
The puppy and the frog are her two sleeping buddies. She loves them and usually has one in each arm (or one under her head and the other in her arm!)

And a quick video for you... She doesn't like pancakes, brownies, cheerios or bananas - but she really loves duck! :)

Enjoy! :)

Another tooth!

That darn second tooth FINALLY broke through today!!! Belle must be feeling much better! :)

Had a great girls day out today with KP, Amber and Kelly. Lunch, manicures and pedicures and some much needed chatting time at Amber's. What a great day! :)

Tomorrow Nick and I are going on a date! woohoo!!! We are getting our first official baby-sitter - KP. :) Just trying to give her a little practice before her little man arrives! :) Harry Potter movie and some desert tomorrow! Can't wait! :)

We had a pretty good weekend here just relaxing. I hope you all did the same! Belle has taken up crying every time I walk out of the room which is just killing me, but we're working through it! The worst was tonight at bedtime. She fell asleep and I put her to bed and she woke up 30 minutes later crying. I gave her her paci back and her eyes went closed immediately and all was good. Until she saw (or heard?) me open the door... then it was complete meltdown. So I held her and rocked her until she fell back asleep and as soon as I put her down, she woke up and was screaming again... She really never does that, so I'm thinking another tooth is coming through (her gums have been pretty swollen for about a week) so we decided to give her some Tylenol. Then I had to rock her for another 30 minutes and finally she's out... I hope she gets some rest tonight. I was up about 8 times last night! That kicked my hiney! I am really getting used to this sleeping through the night thing! :)

Anyway, here are some more photos for you from Friday.
Sporting her pretty dress and eating her puppy. :)
In her pretty pretty princess p.j.'s - still eating the puppy...
Jake hanging out under my chair... Not really sure what he was doing??

Well, tomorrow it's back to work... :( Can't wait for the next weekend! Yea for girls day!!!

Oh - I added some ads to my blog... apparently you can earn money for doing such things. It's a per click deal so feel free to click away! :)

First a funny story for you - Belle pooped on her teachers leg today!!! haha!!! Miss Denise said "Never fails! I have somewhere to go after work and SOMEBODY *looking at Belle* poops or pukes on me!" Haha!! That's my girl! :)
