Charlotte is 8 Months!

This is so so so so so late, but..... Charlotte is 8 months old

You are so very very very very MOBILE. Your 8th month of life was spent ON. THE. MOVE.

You love to eat... and are enjoying all sorts of solid foods. Your meal time usually results in a complete case of uncontrollable laughter for your brother and I since you are grabby and messy! And your brother is still your biggest fan. I'm so thankful for his help!

One of the major benefits of you eating so well is that you are sleeping SOOO well. The day you turned 8 months old you technically slept through the night... 9pm to 6am. You are down to a pretty predictable 2 feedings per night and still have about 6 bottles a day. You seem to be expending a lot of energy so we constantly feel like you are hungry... and napping :) 

Did I mention that your brother loves you? He TOTALLY loves you. A lot.

You two are practically my favorite things on earth (second only to your amazing daddy). 
Charlotte you are seriously the most beautiful girl I've ever seen in my whole life. I can't get enough of your bright eyes, your huge smile, and your sweet innocence. 

This month you learned how to pull yourself up to standing which is basically your favorite position. You have a little activity table you stand at ALL day to push buttons and make music. 

We also left you alone for an ENTIRE day this month with your Grandma and Grandpa. That was so hard but I desperately needed time with your dad. We didn't leave you overnight (mostly because we didn't want to put Grandma and Grandpa through waking up twice to feed you) but we spent about 10 hours away from you and you, of course, survived just fine. 

We enjoy you so much, you are hilarious and sweet and beautiful and mischievous and into everything. Our life is so much more fun with you in it.

Happy 8 months sweet girl!
