Rosalie at 8 months

Whenever I publish an emotional post like the last one (The People NFP Made) I usually a) go dark for a week to recover, and b) like to keep the next one light.  So here’s a photo-heavy post about a completely non-controversial topic: my adorable baby.  Hey!  There’s even a little video because I be totes fancy, y’all.

See?  I just can’t even write anymore.

Distraction! Rosalie!  She’ll be 8 months old by the time you read this.  8 months ago I thought she was never going to get here evereverever, and then ALL OF THE SUDDEN there she was. Since then she has completely stolen our hearts.

Currently:

  • crawls with this funny one leg-pushing forward move, pulls up, and sometimes lets go.  Aiiiiiiii.
  • eats anything off the floor, but she’s gotten pretty good about spitting stuff out (with a smirky grin) when I tell her to.
  • says: mamamamama and mehmehmeh, but mostly it just means she’s sad.
  • is a leeeeetle bit screechy and this I do not love so much. When Zeke was this age we called him the Nazgul and/or pterodactyl.  Rosie isn’t quite that bad, but Mass can be a challenge. (Churches with their awesome acoustics are my kids’ favorite echo chambers.)
  • understands a whole lot.  She gets very excited: (starts flapping her arms) when she hears the words: mama, daddy, milk/nurse, eat, more.
  • signs a little bit.  She may be my earliest signer.  She knows milk/nurse (we use the words interchangeably) but she only signs it when she’s being playful or actually nursing.  When she’s freak-out hungry or tired, she just throws herself at my chest. Other words: hi, bye, more

Here’s a cute video:

  1. Yes, she’s an absolute cutie and adorable and I can tell she is adored by all! I remember her sweet and beautiful face while you carried her at Edel! My baby just turned 2 and she signs too as she learned signs with “Signing Times” DVDs. Great videos that all my kids love and learn alot from, even my older kids! Your family is precious! Happy homeschool planning! That’s what I’m doing too!
