I don't even know where to begin. I CAN'T BELIEVE MY BABY IS 8 MONTHS OLD!
After getting through a long lonely winter- time has begun to go in mega speed and I can't keep up.
Here are some out takes from her 8 month photo shoot.

|Most of the time- She does.|

We are still going to play dates. We meet with a great group of mamas and babies every other week. There are 6 girls. I love our little group and i feel so lucky to have found them. We met through a group called Neighborhood Parents Network a group i joined when i was pregnant. We started with a 3 week- weekly meet up and continued to get together after the 3 weeks were up. Friends for life!
|L- R Layne (pink top), Mckenna, Ayla, Lola, Madeline, Sophie. Sweet girls.|
And her sweet friends (met through meetup.com) Cruz & Oliva.
I know i have mentioned all my meet ups before. But i highly suggest doing something like this if you are a new mom staying home with your kiddo. I was stuck inside all winter, and i started going to these meet ups when Layne was 3 months old. And it really brought me out of my winter funk. I needed it. I love it. It's kinda like internet dating. for babies. :)
Happy Father's Day Andrew! We love you and we appreciate you working so hard for us.

Long 8 month post. Jeez!
Let's see. At 8 months she:
Went to Blue's Fest, Rib Fest, Do Division Fest - more festivals coming up (I love Chicago in the summer!!)
Tomorrow she will go in the pool for the first time!! (cannot wait) (Chicago public pools open this weekend.) WOOT!
Sits up completely unassisted
Loves all food.
Tried & loves puffs.
Started drinking water (i think) more like spilling it down the front of her shirt.
eats 2 meals a day
Breakfast: Baby oatmeal and fruit
She's still nursing great!
Slept 10 hours without waking up (last night)
sleeps with a lovie in her crib.
We lowered the crib.
It's 1 am and she is crying in her crib now. Her ears must be burning from this long post! So much for sleeping 10 hours!
love you layner bird! This month... New York here we come! Andrew is standing up in a wedding. Layne is staying with Auntie Aimee.
and lots of POOL TIME!
