Happy 8 Month Birthiversary!

Things Magnolia has learned this month:

  • ++ To give kisses (she will even give you a kiss when we read about it in one of her books).  So fun!

  • ++ To wave hello and goodbye

  • ++ To put her hands over the side of her high chair tray where they get magically tickled and cleaned at the same time (Consequently, Otis and Trudy have discovered where to hang out at mealtimes)

  • ++ That she prefers one food over another (One day after eating banana for breakfast she was given her staple tofu for lunch. Assuming the tofu cube to be banana she immediately spit it out and started crying.)

  • ++ Moving her hands makes Mama and Papa excited. She is trying to sign to us lately. She has mastered rubbing her fists together (the sign for changing your diaper) but uses it for everything. A couple times, she has been able to sign for "more" when eating by tapping her fists together instead of twisting

Magnolia's Favorites right now:

Food - Peas, Avocado, Sweet Potato, Banana

Songs - Itsy-Bitsy Spider and Old MacDonald (especially when Papa sings it)

Book - Snuggle Puppy

She is growing up so fast! And I love the cupcakes, so cute. I realized this week that our little one could be born almost exactly a year apart (but she can't be a leap baby) from Maggie. I love looking at all of Maggie's pictures and seeing her go through the milestones and the seasons.

Did you get the stethascope?

Hello again. I talked to Angie today, and she has the stethascope but lost your phone number. She has it in her car and works mon-fri at the Firs if you want to pick it up. :)
