8 months with Tatum

 this picture is out of focus.. but it's so cute I had to share!
despite her face, she loves this dog so so much.

Happiest 8 months of my life! Oh my gosh I am so obsessed with this little bug it's crazy! She is so funny, smart, and obviously ADORABLE. How did I get so lucky? I'm sure every mom says that, but seriously, I wonder how I got so blessed with such an amazing baby! Always been such a good eater and sleeper, that makes things a little easier! This is such a fun age, I love watching her accomplish new milestones, and starting to just figure everything out. She has started to feed herself little things of food I set out for her in her high chair. It's so funny to watch cause she will pick it up with one little curl of her pointer finger, look at it intently, put it in her mouth, and her face will just light up! Like "oh my gosh this is amazing, and I just did that all by myself!" It's the cutest thing to watch, couple things I love that she is starting to do, is when she is tired she will crawl over to me and lay her head on my chest to let me know she is tired. It seriously the cutest thing ever, and it melts my heart! Another thing is, she will stand up all by herself and take one step then of course fall on her bum, but she will immediately look at me with a smile and wait for me to clap and cheer for her ( like I always do) and then she will laugh and get all shy and hide her face. UGH so cute, just thinking about it makes me smile. Her love for dogs is so crazy, anytime she sees a dog she will start laughing, and flapping her arms cause she is so excited, she will spend all of her days crawling around chasing a dog just so she can pet it. She has this stuffed dog she has to have with her at all times. (Even though one of the dogs got ahold of it, and chewed off its nose.) She just snuggles it, and loves on it, and it is her most comforting thing. Whenever she is crying I just give her her "pup" and she snuggles it and stops crying. I LOVE IT. She even says the word "pup" I can't believe how big she is getting! She is already taking steps to walk! WHAT?! Yeah I'm shocked too, she is only 8 months old she can't possibly be trying to walk yet! It makes me sad but also I am so proud of her! These past 8 months have been challenging but sooooo rewarding. Being a mother is the greatest job in the world, and I am so happy she is all mine. She keeps me on my toes but she is my world and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Size: 3-6 months clothes some 6-9 month clothes as well, and size 3 diapers!

Sleep: Goes to bed around 9:00 pm and doesn't wake up till 9:30-10:00! such a great sleeper, takes 2 naps a day and they are never consistent, sometimes they are 30 minutes, other times they are 2 hours!

Food: eats three solid Meals a day, and has a Formula bottle every 3-4 hours. Her favorite fruits are apples, watermelon, and mangos. Her favorite veggies are sweet potatoes, white potatoes, and carrots. She loves those little puff snacks too! And the baby food in pouches where she can feed herself are a fave, she loves that she can feed herself!

Hair: Still not a lot of hair, but it's coming in a little more! It looks light brown!

Eyes: Super green in the sun, and other times they either look blue or brown, Still no set color! But they are so so pretty!
