8 Months!



Maren is the first kid I have (almost) kept up with monthly. I missed last month with the end of school and moving. But we are fairly well finished moving in. We hung a few pictures last Saturday. We just have 2 pesky boxes left, mainly filled with all the kids art/craft stuff that I am not sure where to put....

Part of that is due to Maren's great changes over this past month. She now has 5 teeth. We have been giving her new foods just about every day and she is happy to eat. We waited the longest to give her food, including Cheerios, so she has figured things out fast compared to what I remember. On only the 2nd day having Cheerios she could pinch them to pick them up and not have to search all over her hand and face like I remember with other kids. My muscles have slowly gotten stronger, but now even I get tired carrying her for long. But good for her she also is so super close to crawling. She now can get where she wants with a mixture of scooting, rolling, stretching etc. She gets up on all fours but just can't keep going yet. So I am trying to think at least a little bit about what is down on all those bottom shelves she will soon be getting in to. She had been better at sleeping but moving messed that up. However, she did do this just the other day...
And now a few videos showing her attempts at crawling and her excellent back scooting....
