Anna ~ 8 Months

Slow down, baby girl!  You are growing up way too fast!  In the past month, Anna has gone from just rolling around everywhere and doing her favorite pose ALLLLLLL crawling like a pro.

To the left...

...To the right!  I bet Anna has struck this post 1,000 times!
Here she is doing the pose again, but, *ahem* "somebody" jumped in the picture with his own insta-pose, ha!!

Then she did the army crawl everywhere for a week or two.  Somewhere in there, she learned to push herself up into the sitting position and now she can sit up so tall and strong all day without me worrying she'll fall over.

In a matter of days, she was then crawling like a pro and I can hardly keep up with her now!  Baby gates are going up this weekend! 

In her 7th month, we had a bit of sleep regression and now Anna's waking up to eat around 3:30 or 4 a.m. each night.  She's also napping exclusively in her swing because for some reason, her naps just fell apart and wouldn't last more than 20-30 minutes in the crib.  I thought maybe she was getting a tooth, possibly disrupting her sleep, but as far as I can tell, no chompers are coming through yet.

The more mobile she becomes, the more she chases her brother Ben.  She is absolutely crazy about him! Here's a game they play at night sometimes before bed:  Ben jumps off the chair, lands and rolls into a flip and runs over to kiss Anna.  Anna HEE HAWS :)  Now that I look at the picture below of Ben jumping, it is pretty funny!

Baseball season is upon us, and Anna has been to several games already.  She looks pretty pumped about it, huh?

Finally, we're still getting the hang of this eating business.  She's not that into eating the solids lately, and that means lots of spitting it out, grabbing the bowl and spoon, and rubbing the dirty face.  Unless it's bananas on the menu - this little girl will eat anything as long as I cover it up with bananas :)  So, she ends up looking like this a lot of the time!
