Do I dare?!

Oh geez. Etsy gets me in all kinds of trouble!! Look what I have stumbled across and can't get off my mind:

It's a headband with FAKE hair to make it look like it's in little pigtails!! I am completely in love with this concept! :) And for 20 bucks, it just might be worth a try! I mean how stinkin' cute is this!?! But at the same time...I'm promoting hair extensions in an 8 month old! :) Do I dare?!?

(I'm thinking so....)

First Haircut!

It was time...

for the mullet to go!! :)

She got to sit in a purple jeep and watch Dora while she was getting it cut while mommy took a ton of pictures and actually, cried a little!! (I wouldn't let Jaycee see, so I kept the camera to my face, so I had to keep snatching shots!)

Just like someone commented on facebook:

"Looks like she is going to enjoy getting pampered!"

Her first trip on the river!!

I think we may have just found a new river rat!! This was her first day out and it was a success! Grandma Jo Jo and Steve bought a boat, and we were so excited to go out with them today and to see if Miss Jaycee would like it.

She definately enjoyed herself!!

Look at this girl and her personality!! We're gonna have our hands full when she gets older!! No fear!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! :)

How many falls can one girl take!

I tell ya....since this girl has learned how to's nonstop!! Literally! She is nonstop from morning until bedtime. But one thing I wasn't prepared for is how they learn how to pull up, but they don't know how to get back down!

One of her favorite things to do now is to pull up on the glass doors at the front and the back door and then bang on it like she needs out!! hahaha. She acts like she's here against her will!! ;) But when he comes time to get down or when she gets tired...she just falls...backwards, forwards, sideways...which ever way gets her down and if I'm not RIGHT there, her poor head gets the brunt of it (or it seems like it!) It's killing me! I've been trying to show her how to get into a sitting position from standing, but she's not having it!! Bless her heart, surely she has to get the jift of it someday right?!!

I am not doing too well keeping up on my blogging. So this blog is going to contain a bunch of stuff at once!!
We ARE 8 MONTHS OLD!! My goodness gracious, the milestones that we achieved between 7 and 8 months!! The things she couldn't do a month ago, to the things we are doing now!!
Here is a picture of my little princess with her daddy. This was taken a couple of weeks ago while we were in Chicago!! She's such a blessing!

Here is a picture of her over the weekend while we were playing one morning!! I l-o-v-e a baby in just a diaper!! :)

And now to the 8 month milestones:
*She can say dada!
*She jibbers other stuff nonstop all the time!! It's finally not all a scream or a "oooo" but you can tell she's definately trying to tell me something!
*We still drink about 24 ounces of formula a day and eat about 3 jars of baby food a day. Plus a little apple juice and the gerber puffs are our favorite snack! :)
*She is a solid 10 1/2 hour sleeper at night, and sometimes 11 hrs if she's worn out!! I can't complain
*We got our two bottom teeth at the same time. They finally broke the gums on July 10th!! (thank God...we weren't sleeping too well right before that!)
*WE ARE CRAWLING!!! She did the belly/army crawl for the longest time and honestly, it did nothing but frustrate me b/c I knew she could get up on those legs!! hahaha. Us mommy's can push us harder than anyone!! But on August 3rd she finally went forward on all fours to get nothing else but a dog bone!! :) Here is a picture of her in action below!!
*She is pulling up on EVERYTHING!! I was washing bottles one day this weekend at the sink and she crawled up to me, grabbed ahold of my leg and I could tell she was trying to pull up, and after about a minute I turned and looked down and she was up on her feet!! I freaked out!! And of course she doesn't know how to get herself back down to the ground, so she just falls!! This is making me a nervous wreck! She's bumped her head more in the past 2 weeks than she has her whole life!
*She LOVES cords!! Cords to lamps, computers, name it, she wants it!! And now that she can crawl to these things...I've got to get creative!! This crawling stuff is bittersweet!!
And while I believe that's it for the 8 month milestones, I think that's enough for one month!! I don't think mommy can handle much more!! Her personality is just the greatest!! She so sweet and friendly and right now, she still has no problem holding her hands out for anyone to hold her!! She's a big flirt too with the boys!! :)

Look at that face, and those thighs!!! How could you know eat her up?!?! :)
