8 months old

Look at that, it’s only the 6th and I am already working on your monthly post.  Maybe one of these days I will finish Taylor’s 3 year old blog post Smile

Elizabeth’s personality is really starting to shine through and she can be the happiest baby and so loving!

July 11

Here’s a few things our girl has been up to lately:

  • size 3 diaper
  • 6-9 and 6-12 month clothes (almost ready to move up to 9 month for length)
  • not sure on height or weight, but we’ll find out in a month at her 9 month checkup
  • Nicknames: Lizzie, Lil’ Bit, Sister, Pickle(but only from KK), Chavalita(Lita says this is another way of saying Elizabeth in Spanish)
  • She started crawling last month, but now she’s a speed demon.  Obstacles are taken on as a challenge of something else to plow through and we now find her into all sorts of stuff.(I really wish I had my camera when she found the dogs food)
  • Elizabeth is also pulling herself up on everything and loves to see what her little hands can now reach.  She kept Chris on his toes while I was gone for a few days and decided to explore some of my nightstand drawers.


  • Meal times are getting a little easier as she is able to munch on Cheerios and puffs(picks these out first).  Elizabeth figured out how to use a straw when she grabbed my cup with a straw and managed to get a few sips out(luckily it wasn’t a Mommy drink was water).  Now she is fascinated with any drink I have with a straw!  I also have to watch out for little hands finding big sister’s cups now.  Strep taught us a fast lesson in this precaution among siblings!

  • Taylor never really showed a huge interest in Sadie, but Elizabeth is in LOVE!  Now that she is crawling more Sadie is not sure what to do or where to lay down.  Elizabeth finds Sadie’s toys fascinating and always wants to ‘taste test’ them for herself.  Good thing our dog is so sweet and just lays there until we make Lizzie give the toy back.

  • We have discovered that Elizabeth is quite the little water bug and enjoys swimming and bath time.  Chris even took her underwater and it didn’t even phase her.  She learned to splash and finds this quite amusing in the pool and at bath time.
  • Beware of our little one if you are sitting on the ground.  You might just be the next victim of her crawl by raspberries.  This entails her crawling over to your leg or arm and making a raspberry(or fake fart) noise on it.  Then she’s off again.

  • Those aren’t the only raspberries that Lizzie makes.  It’s hard not to laugh when she gets mad or frustrated and blows raspberries while she’s crying. 
  • Elizabeth also learned to play peek-a-boo this month and will go find her blanket in the diaper bag to play by herself.


  • I love watching the friendship and love growing between my two girls!  Elizabeth wants to do everything Taylor does and finds her toys so much more fascinating.(I’m sure this is just the beginning of many years of this)  Elizabeth loves to play in Taylor’s bed each morning when she gets up.  They laugh and giggle and are a great way to start my day!


Slow down little girl!  You are growing up so fast and I’m not sure I’m ready for you to not a baby for much longer but I love the little person you are becoming!
