Sunday: It's harness cleaning day! We got the ok to take the harness off to clean it last week. Washing it was the easy part. Getting it dry was a little harder. Between the heater vent and the hair dryer we got it done in about 2 hours.
Monday: Since we had an extra day of Thanksgiving break we scheduled a play date with one of my friends. There were 5 kids there, 4 of them under the age of 10 months. Poor Camden was the only boy!
Tuesday: Time to go back to work. I sure did enjoy my 5 day break. 4 more weeks until Christmas break... not that I'm counting or anything.
Wednesday: Handy got me a phone case like his. I didn't have a heavy duty case and was afraid I would drop my phone and break it. These ones claim you can take pictures underwater with them but I don't think we are brave enough to test that out.
Thursday: We picked up some jar baby food for the Girly on Black Friday and fed her some for dinner the first time this week. She slept like a rock. I was actually able to get 2 good nights of sleep before she hit another growth spurt.
Friday: Why yes, the dog's snowball and food dish are much more fun than all of the baby toys I have.
Saturday: This was the first Christmas tree we put up this year. I had seen some hot pink ones advertized and knew that one would look great in the Girly's room. We let her pick the bulbs that are going on it. She chose the pink, green, blue and purple ones over the sparkly silver.
Sunday: If the Girly is in the kitchen she is either trying to play with Bevo's food and water dish or heading to the laundry room to play with the cans in the floor.
Monday: You know you use a lot of honey when you buy it by the half gallon. Handy has been making home made granola bars and it's one of the main ingredients.
Tuesday: 54 degrees on December 4th?!?!
Wednesday: Happy 8 months Girly!
Stats: 17-18-ish lbs (this is just our guess, no well check until next month), size 6 months and 6-9 months clothes. Size 3 diaper. She sleeps well but still wakes up once at night to eat and is eating 3 meals of solids a day. She usually takes 2 naps a day and goes to bed by 8:30.
Still in the harness but crawling anyway. Loves to play with Bevo's toys, mirrors and pretty much anything else we leave on the floor. Shakes her head no, says: ba-ba, da-da, ma-ma and something that sounds a lot like Ella. Will eat avocado, carrots, peaches and blueberries, still gags on green beans and meat.
Thursday: Sweet girl + Christmas lights = Way too much time being spent taking pictures!
Friday: Handy stopped by his favorite bakery at closing time and bought a "value box". That's code for 30 donuts for $4.00. He was a pretty happy guy.
Saturday: We went to see Jacob play basketball. His team won and the Girly had a good time watching the cheerleaders. I sense pom poms in our future.
