8 months and 2 days

Makayla turned 8 months old on Sunday. Where has the time gone? I didn't post earlier because it was Sunday, then I didn't get to do it yesterday because I had to take her to the doctor. Turns out she has the common cold. Here are some pictures of my sweet 8 month old girl.

Dear Makayla,
How quickly you are growing up and trying to be independent. The Thursday before you turned 8 months old, we went to the beach for the first time, and you loved it. Mama will post pictures of that later. You are a speed demon when it comes to crawling, and now you are trying to walk. I have a feeling that by the time we come back from vacation with the rest of the family, you will be a walker. You love your Sesame Street walker. I have to keep my eye on you every second because you are super fast. You love to stand up by pulling on things, and you get into EVERYTHING! You still love swimming, and you cannot get enough of it. Your personality is starting to show, and you are a jabbermouth. You say things like da-da, and ya-ya, but I cannot get you to say ma-ma. I guess time will come when you say that, and I cannot wait. You melt every one's heart, and you were a source of joy as we buried your great grandfather last weekend. You have the cutest smile,with your 2 little bottom teeth, and no matter how sad I feel, you always melt my heart.
You are still wearing 6-9 months clothes, although I am getting ready to wash the "next" set of clothing. In the 8 months that you have been part of my life, I cannot imagine what life was like before you. You are super smart, and try to figure out how everything works, and what everything is.

You are so much like your mama and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I love you and I cannot wait to see how much you change this next month.

dear kiddo: you only need to know two words in your whole life to get everything you want - "pop-pop" and "nana." but "shaezie" and "love you please" will help a lot.

had a great time with you at the beach, can't wait to go on vacation! when your daddy is away i will gnosh on your cheeks a little. because you are that delicious.

feel better soon! love you. xoxo aunt rachel.

ps - you can just call me rachel. i still think "aunt rachel" sounds like some crazy old biddy who lives in boca raton.
