Look who’s a big girl now.
Thus begins the journey from babyhood to toddlerhood. I can feel it coming.
This month has been full of so many changes. She went through a few weeks where she couldn’t sleep well and was so hard to get down at night. But as is often the case with sleep disturbances, we came out on the other side and BAM! New baby! So many developmental leaps happening right now.
She’ll cry when she sees me leaving a room. She laughs whole-heartedly at her brother’s attempts to be goofy and entertain her. She babbles incessantly. She loves the bath. She’s still crawling army-style on her belly, but she gets around fast, and much to my dismay, she pulled herself up on her crib railing twice last week. And we’ve mastered the purees and sippy cup, so I think we’ll move on to tiny finger foods soon.
I don’t know where the time is flying, or more importantly, I don’t know how babies grow this fast. I mean 8 months was not really all that long ago, but the tiny flour sack of a body is long gone, and we are full-blown active baby over here.
It’s exciting and painful all at the same time.
