8 Months Old!

Pearl is eight months old!
Pearl has been busy this month.  She is such a fast crawler, I can barely keep up.  It's nice that she doesn't need to be carried around as much anymore.  She just crawls along behind me.  Pearl also conquered stairs.  She crawled up them with her pop-pop behind her this last weekend.
Our girl has perfected pulling herself up against furniture to stand and can now do it against flat surfaces (like walls and doors).  She especially likes to stand in front of our floor length mirror.  One thing she recently started doing was bending down to pick up toys from a standing position.  She still needs to brace herself against something though.  She also loves to walk around while holding onto our hands.
We transitioned Pearl to her crib.  Some nights go fine, but she generally ends up sleeping in our bed after 4am.
Pearl cut her first tooth and took it like a champ.
New foods she has tried this month include plums, blueberries, butternut squash, broccoli, potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, beets, yogurt, cheese, cheerios, and her favorite - puffs.
Her newest tricks include clapping, waving, and finally saying mama on occasion.
See how much she has grown!


  1. Love these pictures! It is so crazy how different babies even the same age can be! I cannot even imagine H crawling or pulling up or bending down to pick up toys! Amazing!!! Do you think she will walk soon?!

  2. What a sweet girl! How fun to see her learning and growing so much. I bet you all have a fun summer in store with her exploring the outdoors :)

  3. How cute! My littlest one is going to be 8 months in a week or so. I can't believe how fast he's growing up. So when did you start her on cheese? I wasn't really sure when to start my son. I have a 3 year old so you would think I would remember when to start certain foods but, he was/is the pickiest thing on earth. He wouldn't even eat cheese until probably 13 months! My youngest is obsessed with food though. He tried to grab my burger off of my plate the other day!



  4. She gets cuter and cuter each month!


  5. Happy 8 months, precious pretty Pearl!! She is such a happy girl!

  6. Kira, she's adorable! I really want to do this same thing on my blog when Teddy arrives! Love seeing her grow in comparison to her stuffed animals - great idea!!

  7. Goodness, Kira! She's going to be an Olympic athlete or something when she grows up, she's so physical! :) Happy 8 months Pearl!

  9. She's a doll! I can't believe what a jump the two to three month made for her! She really filled out in that time period. ;)

  10. I cannot believe how much she's moving!! Go Pearl! She's a little genius baby! :) So incredibly adorable as usual! xoxo
