8 months old

Amelia, you are eight months old already! You have been personality plus lately! Such a sweet fun girl still! I can't even believe my eyes when I look at you. You are one beautiful baby girl. Your personality has been showing more and I am loving it! You laugh all the time and love to play with momma and dadda. You have started "sharing" everything... paci, food, bottle, toys. You even hold them up to the dogs!
Speaking of the dogs.. you and them still have a love/hate relationship. You LOVE to crawl after them and pull at them and they of course hate it! Divot is much better at letting you"play" with him. You even have gotten the hang of shaking his toy in front of his face.... pretty darn cute! You giggly every time!

Here is your 8 month old Stats

You are the most amazing tiny gift from God! I still have a hard time believing you belong to us. I am overwhelmed with the amount of love I feel for you. Even on days that you are not so sweet and cranky you can flash one smile and the world stops. It is crazy how much your  sweet face can make my day! We love you so much princess!
