8 months old!

Hard to believe that 2/3 of a year has gone by! Lydia is still tiny, but developing wonderfully! I think she may finally be 15 lbs, but that may be a bit of wishful thinking. She's crawling like a pro, and has finally figured out that if someone leaves a room she can actually crawl after them. She doesn't think twice about getting herself to a sitting position by herself, and pulls up to standing whenever there's something close by to pull on.

She's eating at least 2 meals of solids a day and loves cheerios and Gerber puffs. She doesn't seem to have any preferences for veggies vs. fruits -- they're all good to her. She has mastered her pincer grasp.

She doesn't nap often during the day, but sleeps well at night. When we're out and about, she's most content while riding in a sling and loves to wave. She passes things from one hand to the other with ease and explores everything with her mouth.

She's a happy, smiley, giggly baby who is an absolute joy.
