Hadley is now eight months and man she is on the go, go, go! She still can't get the transmission into forward so it's pretty comical to watch her back across the room while trying to reach a toy. Nursing has become a contortionist act, introducing lesser-known holds like "octopus" and "hang ten" instead of cross-cradle or football holds! I can't count how many times I've been kicked in the throat, and I sleep with a hair band around my wrist so I can get my tempting hair out of reach while still half asleep.
She's been waking ahead of when I used to get her up in the morning or staying awake after I feed her, so we've taken to hanging out together while I get ready and then playing in Arden's room while I get big sister ready.
She's got this boisterous personality and a belly laugh to go with it. She loves physical play and "don't drop the baby" gets her squealing and hiccuping every time.
She weighs in at 22 pounds this month using our scale at home. That puts her about 98th percentile for weight. I didn't get a length, but I bet she's still at the 97 - 100th percentile mark for that as well. I forgot to say last month that she had gotten her first tooth on April 26th and then the neighbor on May 30th. She did pretty good cutting teeth - a little grumpy and some drooly days but overall not too shabby.
I used some of the money from the One Kings Lane order to get a 50mm prime lens for my camera and I've been having some fun with that. This picture of Hadley is completely unedited.
She thinks her big sister is the best thing and just loves any attention Arden gives her.
