This sweet little Bee is already 8 months old. Be still my heart. Bee is the sweetest of sweethearts and I'm guessing we say that at least 100 times per day around our house. She steals our hearts clean away with her soft smiles, cheeser grins, friendly pats and cuddles, and that little lizard tongue that is always out and about. Momma and Bee (and the rest of Utah) caught a cold this month and Bee cut her first two teeth during the same week. She was happy and smiley through even the worst of it, and sometimes would just look at us sad and confused like, guys why can't I breathe? Bee was practically over crawling as soon as she learned. Crawling is now only a means to get somewhere to stand. She is getting pretty savvy at pulling up on the couches and coffee table and chairs and walls and beds and our legs and...anything! Her favorite hang out spots are the living room coffee table and the ottoman in her nursery. They seem to be the perfect height for her to stand and have two free hands for playing with puzzles and books. Sometimes she forgets that she can't yet walk and has taken a few good spills with a fat bloody lip to prove it. We always find her with her feet or legs crossed in her highchair or car seat. She gets excited at meal time and watches me prepare her food anxiously, kicking her feet and drumming the highchair. So far she has eaten everything we've offered her, even green beans and tofu. I'm crossing my fingers it will last! We have now fully entered the stranger danger phase and she becomes uneasy around even family these days. She is more than happy to be out and around people as long as mom or dad is holding her. I can't lie, sometimes it feels really good to be the mom she wants! Sweet Bee, we love you more than you'll ever know. xo
I do my very best on this blog to make us look perfect and insanely happy in every way. Which, indeed we are. However, you should also know that sometimes we disagree, we don't get everything we want or everything we pray for, I'm not a size 2, and our sink leaks. Amid all the craziness every day brings, we live each knowing that life is fair, it's just not over yet.
