Baby Gaga turned 8 months old a few days ago. I can't fathom how quickly the 8 months have gone by. On every 19th of the month, I wonder how she could possibly be creeping closer to a year old. She is my sweet baby girl and the light of every single one of my days.

So much has taken place in the past month and a half. I missed her 7 month post, and I am a little pissed at myself. The last few weeks were a little rough... work, illnesses, and lack of sleep made for little time for blogging.

So here we are at 8 months sweet baby girl! At 8 months...

* our biggest accomplishment is that you are still nursing! You have only had breast milk, and I still doing everything I can to make sure it stays that way. It has not been an easy road, but it has been so worth it for the both of us! Lately, you seem to be distracted and looking around the room instead of nursing so I am wondering if this is the beginning of the end. Are you starting to wean yourself? I hope not.

* you are a GREAT eater! I have only given you homemade baby food, and you have eaten every single thing like a champ. Chicken, peas, yellow squash and broccoli, cannelloni beans, pretty much anything I puree, you will eat and smile. I am so relieved! We have a small stash in the freezer, and I am starting to give you some small banana pieces for finger foods. You love reaching out on your tray for those bananas. I should start giving you more finger foods, but I am in no rush!

* you just started sitting up on your own. You go from rocking on all fours to sitting up in the blink of an eye. You love sitting up and playing with toys! You are becoming more and more mobile by the second. I know you are going to be crawling in no time!

* your hand eye coordination is improving. I guess you think this means that you deserve to have the iPad every second. If you don't get said iPad when you want it, watch out. You throw a mini-tantrum that is simply adorable.You and your sister are going to have some battles... I am sure of it.

* speaking of your sissy. You love her. You stare at her and your eyes follow her around the room at all times (probably making sure she doesn't take your binky). Between her and Teddy Baby Boy, I am fighting for your attention!

* you FINALLY started sleeping through the night! After two nights of a little crying and no nursing, you are sleeping from 7:15-6:00. I am starting to feel normal again after getting some sleep.

* you are wearing 12 month clothes and you have the longest little torso. You better fit into all of your sissy's summer clothes, but you are growing like a weed.

* you have the best gummy smile and the clearest, blue eyes I have ever seen. Your skin is so smooth and without a blemish. You hair is soft and sweet smelling. Every inch of you is perfection.
