Elise: 8 Months

IMG_8098

8 months! 3/4 of a year. Wasn’t I just in the hospital giving birth…? I guess not.

This is a good stage. We have a routine, which makes life more predictable for her and I. We thrive on schedules in the Waller household.

Elise loves:

  • Exploring
  • Climbing
  • Water (baths, rain, drinking water, the dog’s water bowl, a few drops spilled on the floor…)
  • Eating paper
  • Playing outside
  • Popsicles
  • Mom (still a liiiiiittle attached)
  • Being chased by Dad when he comes home from work

See? This is Elise saying, “Hmm I think I could climb this and get to those flowers.” I promise – it’s exactly what she’s thinking.

Firsts:

  • Walks behind cart
  • Says “mama”
  • Falling asleep at the dinner table

Ellie is also showing us that we might be in for it as she gets older. She has quite the stubborn attitude and loves attention. She goes from ‘happy and pleasantly eating in her highchair’ to ‘screaming her head off with two angry fists’ without warning. She sobs and sobs if we take away a phone (or computer or dog food or cookbook) she’s chewing on. And she likes to be with us. All the time. She might have a serious FOMO problem. Or maybe just a little case of separation anxiety 😉
