Eight Months

Summer, as of tomorrow, is eight months and two weeks old! Hard to believe she's been in the world with us almost as long as she was inside my belly. I did not get her monthly picture with the bear this time as we were getting ready for our visit to McAlester that day (another post later). This one was taken a few days before that, so it'll have to do. It embodies so much of her personality! She loves to be in the middle of everything.

Month eight was a big month for Miss Summer E. She learned how to sit herself up from the floor and she also worked a lot on pulling up all the way. She actually started doing that before she was sitting. She usually just makes it to her knees and she can only do it on something very sturdy and low to the ground, but she is practicing more and more. Three days after she turned eight months she started to crawl! It happened in McAlester while we were visiting Bill's dad and family. I thought she might do it then since there would be lots of new and interesting things to see and I was right. The second day we were there she started moving forward. She skipped the army crawl phase and was hands and knees crawling all the way across the room. And she has become QUICK since then!

She again impressed all her McAlester family with her cuteness;) And boy is she LOUD! She loves to shriek and scream when she is happy, excited, or mad. We just love her to pieces!
