8 Months old

 Today my sweet Alyssa is 8 months old. I'm a little sad that she won't stop growing, but such is life. She is still the best baby ever. She loves to eat. she eats and eats and eats. She will eat pretty much anything you give her now. That includes paper and broken crayons and pieces of toys. Hopefully, I can keep her from eating non food items from now on though. She prefers to feed herself, but I still feed her baby food at each meal.
She is taking after her brother Jake. Not just in looks, but in actions as well. She can pull herself up on anything now and will even attempt at letting go and stepping towards something else. Jake walked at 8 1/2 months old and she is following pretty close to that bar he set.  She crawls really fast and can get where she needs to go. If I'm not careful she will climb half the stairs (7 or 8 steps) before I notice. The other day she climbed the whole flight of stairs (under Randy's supervision.) Sheesh!

I'm glad, unless she is tired, she will go to anyone who wants to hold her. It makes life easier for me, especially at church. She smiles and laughs at her brothers and sister all day. They love her so much and the novelty of a new sister still hasn't worn off. I'm getting to know her sweet personality a little better. I think if I paid more attention she wouldn't ever fuss. It is only when she is neglected that she cries out for my attention. I love you dear Alyssa! Happy 8 Months today!
