Eight Months Old!

(By Aubree)

Clara is Eight months old today! It's going so fast, and we just love our little Clara Bear more and more every day! She has such a cute personality, and it's been so much fun watching her change and learn new things.

Here's what Clara is up to now:

-She started crawling about 3 weeks ago, but has done straight crawling (no army crawling) for about a week or more.
-She pulls herself onto anything she possibly can. Her favorite thing right now is to pull herself up on the couch or a chair and stand up.
-She has 2 teeth on the bottom front.
-She says dadada and we have decided that is her first word.
-She has said mama, but only a couple of times.
-She makes this sound like she's hissing, but with more of a k sound. She doesn't do it as often as she used to though.
-She isn't stranger shy anymore. She got over that pretty quickly, thank goodness.
-She loves to flirt with the people sitting behind us at church. We try to move her so she can't see the people behind us, but she will worm her way back up to look at them.
-She can crawl up stairs.
-When she wakes up, from naps or in the morning, she will be standing up in her crib looking at the doorway, just waiting for someone to come get her.
-She eats pretty much anything, but recently she is getting a little bit more picky. She will still eat anything, but just not the whole thing if she doesn't fancy it.
-She likes to blow raspberries on my cheeks and arms.
-She LOVES when Jeff gets home and when he comes in the house he will say hi for a minute, and then go change his clothes, and she will throw a fit when he leaves the room.
-She's probably the happiest she has ever been and I think it's because she can get around on her own.
-She has stood up without holding onto anything for a few seconds at a time. I think she will be walking as soon as she possibly can!
-It seems like she can understand some things that we say or at least she's trying to understand.

Here's all of the things she likes to pull herself onto! (i.e. anything!)

The big girl crawling!

My parents came to visit yesterday and she had so much fun playing with them!

This is her waiting for me to come get her after her nap.

She gets into everything! I gave her this ribbon to play with and it was sealed, the next thing I know the seal is off, and half of the ribbon is unwound!
