Eight Months

Grumpster will be eight months old on Saturday. I think that's just beyond weird. She's hardly the same child now. Her personality is much too big for her body. She's constantly crawling all over creation and pulling herself up to stand on anything she can reach. She likes to do naughty things like sit on mommy's computer or try to feel daddy's brain by going in through his eye socket. She also enjoys saying "mamamamamamama", but only when she's whiny. During her other, happier moods, she likes to say "da daaadadaadada". I'm not sure how I feel about my name being associated with sadness. 

She's a little snot, but I love her dearly. I've honestly tried to imagine what my life would be like if we hadn't gotten pregnant immediately after our wedding, and I can't. Well, I can, but it's very... empty. As frustrated as I get with her, I definitely wouldn't want my life any other way -- stretch marks and all.


  1. LOOOOK at how precious she is. What a beautiful girl... grumpy and all :)

  2. Oh my goodness, isn't she a cutie! When you get to those monthly milestones it really puts things in perspective and makes you wonder all kinds of things like what you did with your time before a baby, what it would be like without them and whats it going to be like 8 months from now. I can remember in the first week looking at my baby girl and thinking "one day soon you'll be like 9 months old" and thinking how far away that felt, when it actually came and went faster than I could keep track of!
