Eight Months

From this: To this:


I am almost positive that any day now Meg is going to stand up, smile, and run at top speed down the street. She is all about movement right now. Whether she is bouncing in her bouncer, or rolling around on the floor, or sitting up and throwing herself back, she is always on the move. She is always moving towards something, and it is usually something being kept out of reach for a reason. Yesterday? She broke my Dad's glasses. He says before he knew what was happening she had taken them off his face and snapped them in two. Luckily he's smitten with her, so he didn't mind wearing the old pair that practically render him blind.

Meg is a big talker too, with an ever growing repertoire or words. She can say dog, and mama, and hi, so far; and Ryan swears that one day she said her own name. She is also a big fan or clicking her tongue and sticking out her tongue, which crack her up to no end. I really worry that some day soon I will no longer be the funniest in the family. Well, at least I will still be the most sarcastic.

We are spending more time outside now as the weather warms, and Meg really seems to be a fan. She loves watching birds, and taking walks, wrinkles her nose when the wind blows on her, and is mesmerized by flowers. She has always been a very observant child, but there is something about nature that really seems to draw her in. Watching her I find myself believing in reincarnation, because he isn't just seeing the world, she's drinking it in, savoring it like a connoisseur. I just watch her in awe, feeling so lucky to have her in my life.

What a wonderful girl. Oh, how I love her.

Don't worry Lib, you were never the funniest in the family - Dad has always held the title.

Ahhhh the beauty and joy of children at that age.

Makes me wish that mine were that age again.

A beautiful little girl you have there.

She is absolutely gorgeous, and she is fortunate to have such a loving family (extended family included) taking care of her. Here is to many more joyous experiences with your adorable girl!

What a sweetie! Not every kid is cute, you know - my little sister came out looking like a hothouse tomato - but she is beautiful.

She Said said...

Wow, she is growing up fast. I loved reading this; thank you for sharing.

You are going to love it when she starts talking. My best conversations by far these days are the ones with my 3 year old daughter. I wish I could freeze this moment in time with her because she is so much fun. Oh, except I'd like her fully potty trained first, then frozen.

I love her too!!!!!!

She is freakin' adorable! Seriously. It almost makes me want to have kids.

Almost.

Meg just continues to get cuter and cuter as the months go on. Soon she'll be running and running around! Good thing she decided to break Grandpa's glasses, those Grandpa's forgive anything that little girls do!

Aren't those changes just amazing? From six months on it's like a whole new world every day!
