I meant to post this yesterday... OOPS!
This month FLEW by... I mean, like, super duper fast. It is crazy how fast 8 months have gone by with my little bunny boo! She is growing up so fast, right before my eyes. Not only is her personality growing, but so is her size. She outgrows her clothes so often that it requires me to shop for her all the time... bummer, huh? I recently got a Gap card and I think it was a bad idea. It does make me feel better, though, when half the stuff I buy is on sale (snagged a $50 coat for just about $15 after all the discounts!) I can't wait to start dressing her up in snuggly little outfits!
Tonight we are going to our church for Halloween festivities and I just can't wait to dress her up in her costume. I tried it on her the other night and I just about died. I decided to dress up with her as well. My costume is more low key though - I'm wearing black leggings with a black and yellow striped skirt over them, a black shirt, and some boots. I also made myself a black and yellow flower headband.
So, to recap everything that has happened in the past month, she has started to talk a LOT, saying Mama, Dada, yaya, baba, along with making a scary growl voice. She also has this hilarious laugh that starts the moment she wakes up and doesn't stop until she goes to bed. It cracks us up... I think she does it just to see us laugh at her! She is now eating pureed chicken and little tastes of almost everything we are eating. She loves her bouncer, LOVES to crawl everywhere, and watches the Disney Channel all the time. Her favorite shows are Chuggington and Blues Clues. Her canine teeth are aaaaalmost poking through - any day now! I can't believe she has 8, going on 10, teeth right now. At least she is getting them all out of the way early!
We went to Disneyland on her 8 month birthday and she had SO much fun! It was all decorated in the Halloween theme and the weather was perfect. The park was only open from 9-6 but this ended up being perfect - she was pooped by 6:30. I loved taking her on all the rides and watching her eyes light up while we watched the parade. We sat in the front row on the curb and Princesses waved and blew kisses to Berlyn, it was the cutest thing. I never knew the amount of joy my heart would fill with just by watching how happy my daughter was. We went on Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, Dumbo, the carousel, and Jungle Cruise. It's a Small World was closed for remodeling for Christmas and I was super bummed. But overall we had a great time!
This weekend I will be posting Berlyn's monthly chalkboard pic!
