is how long it's taken for me to get below my pre-pregnancy weight. 8 months! Whatever, I'm here and it's not stopping, I'm getting to my goal darnit!
But let's not let this be about me. Because 8 months means something completely different for this little somebody:
Her favorite toy is still the remote control. She likes the Elmo one I got her just fine, but there's something about the real thing that just has this magical allure to her. Now she's noticing and trying to grab at mama's newest toy: the iphone! Yes, I made the switch over to Verizon to snag this phone so I could be as cool as the rest of 'em, and let me tell you, I'm so glad I did! I love love love this thing. So any suggestions for some awesome apps are totally appreciated. I'll fess up and say I love Words w/ Friends, Angry Birds, Hipstamatic, 8mm camera, Bejeweled, and oh yes - Oregon Trail. AND the amazing Red Laser, which is like a scanner thing so you can check the lowest price on anything by just scanning in the barcode. Seriously if you haven't gotten on the bandwagon yet, go get one now!
OK, OK I'll end my rave. Moving on...
She has two teeth, both bottoms. #2 came in on the first of the month, and I'm expecting a top one to come in soon because she's back to drooling like crazy. Over the weekend I picked up some teething biscuits and she adores them - along with the organic puffs we got her. Here's a little video of her trying to eat them that I shot on (what else?) my iphone (did I tell you how much I love this thing?):
We moved her crib down yet again on Saturday because she's pulling up on everything, so she's now on the lowest level! It's so crazy, her once-adorable crib now looks like a little mini jail cell to me. Next stop is the transition to toddler rails, which I'm not ready for for at least 13 more years.
Anyway, she's much much better from the little cold she had over a week ago. What amazes me so much about her is that even when she was clearly feeling crummy, she still was all smiles. She has the sweetest disposition ever (her daddy suggests she gets it from him!). The other day I was reminiscing on how we used to have to hold her for all her naps, and I realized that she hadn't been held for a nap in months. It made me kind of sad, but the next day she humored her mama and let me hold her for one :-)
