Well, with facebook driving me absolutely up the wall I've decided to just get back into the swing of blogging.
So, here's what is new. Violet is just shy of turning 8 months old! Can you believe it?! She is crawling, standing, cruising, eating 3 solid meals a day and is also learning how to eat finger foods. She is still in cloth diapers and I'm still nursing her at every feeding. She naps once in the morning for about 45 min and once in the afternoon for 1-3 hours. She's usually in bed by 8 and wakes once or twice in the night. I only nurse her once in the middle of the night. Not every time she wakes. I am trying to get her to only wake once in the night and hopefully by the time she is one, she wont wake at all. (fingers crossed)
She loves to explore all over the house and is beginning to mimic sounds. (like a dog barking) She gives high fives, kisses, hugs, waves hello and goodbye and she likes to talk a lot. She says yaya, mama, dada, aaaa, oooo, eew, eye-eye, sssss, etc. Those are the most common. She just learned yesterday how to play peek-a-boo with a cloth all by herself!
She still doesn't have any teeth yet...which is ok with this nursing mama!
