Aubrey, you are EIGHT months old!! I can't believe how fast the time has flown! You are still the happiest baby all the time. We drag you all over creation with your brother and sister, and you just don't seem to care in the least. Right now, it's T-ball season, so the weather could be just about anything. You just roll with the punches.
You still love going to "school" each day, and you are in LOVE with your teachers Mrs. Judy and Mrs. Linda. They both say you are the best baby all day, and you never get upset. Mrs. Wren, another teacher, was telling me that one day she came in to help with the babies, and you were a little testy about how quick they were about getting your bottle! She said that you very clearly yelled "Mama!" We have been working on that with you at home, but we haven't heard it yet. Maybe if I make you mad enough you will!
We are working on clapping and crawling, although once you start, I'm sure I'll wish I could keep you in one place. You are the funniest thing when it comes to crawling! You get up on all-fours and just rock back and forth. You look down at your legs and it looks like you're thinking, "I know this works for Alex and Braxton!" We know you'll get the hang of it soon, and when you do, 'Katie Bar the DOOR!'
Another funny thing is that you like being in your walker outside. We have been working out in the backyard on the "never ending pool project" for the last several weeks, just about every afternoon after work. Annaleigh is such a good helper with you, and so is Alden really. They bring your walker outside and keep up with you by attaching the dog's leash to it!
You are still eating about the same...and sleeping about the same, too! You usually wake up once per night. Sometimes, we try to wait you out on the bottle and see if you'll go back to sleep. That's also usually a waste of our time. Once you eat, you go right back to sleep. Spoiled? I'm sure. But you're my last baby. I'll wake up with you whenever you want. I can sleep with you're in college.
Right now, you are still wearing a size 3 diaper, and size 9-12 month clothes. We can't wait for summer to get here so we can get you in the POOL! I might have already bought you several adorable swimsuits to wear, since we Baggetts live in swimsuits! I can't wait to get you in that water!!
Here are your 8 month pictures!
First try at pictures...I realized after a few pics that this bow was really HUGE!! But you were just so happy, so I included it anyway!
Close up of really huge bow on really sweet head...
Equally happy baby with a better bow...
A little tired of posing...
Getting ready to try to crawl off...
Time for a location change!
Azaleas! These only bloom in March/April and they are gorgeous!!
They're called "Christmas Cheer."
Checking out the rocks...
If you look really close, you can see two teeth!
"Best pic you're gonna get Mom.
Now move, I can't see the puppies!"
"There the puppies are!!" Aubrey absolutely adores our two dachshunds, Abby and Alex.
Are you noticing a theme here? Annaleigh, Alden, Aubrey, Abby, and Alex???
"These rocks are dirty, Mama. You should clean them."
"They still taste okay!"
