8 Months

Well as of today Kinzlie is 8 months and 1 week old. She is weighing in at a whopping 20 pounds (she has gained quite a bit of weight now that we're feeding her formula, baby food, and rice cereal). She can now roll from her belly to her back and her back to her belly. She is also trying to get up on her hands and knees to begin crawling. And, sometimes she tries to pull herself up on the couch but doesn't get too far. Kinzlie loves to watch momma blow bubbles, read stories, play with her toys, and go on walks.
She is getting so big, and learning more and more everyday. Jordan and I love to play with her and watch her learn and develop every day. She is the light of our lives and we both absolutely adore her :)

A few fun facts about Kinzlie Rae at 8 Months:
-She has found her tongue and loves to stick it out and blow bubbles
-She makes a lot of funny sounds including growling, screaming and babbling
-Kinzlie is a great eater, she eats rice cereal, oatmeal, every type of baby food we give her and especially loves french fries, ice cream, and snow cones
-She is now sleeping in her crib, and does really well at putting herself to sleep (we've been using the secure attatchment sleep training)
-She can now take off her bibs and her velcro cloth diapers
-Kinzlie hates loud noises like the vaccum, nose blowing, car washes, lawnmowers, and the blowdryer
-She can say momma and baba (but I don't know if she really knows what they mean but she knows she gets a response when she says them lol)
-She loves to take her hand to her mouth and make indian noises with momma and daddy
-Kinzlie also loves to take baths and even gets mad when it's time to get out
-We are continueing to teach her sign language and so far she is getting the hand of signing eat, i love you, and milk
-I have also been trying to teach her to use the potty so, whenever I think she is going I try to get her on the potty so it's not so hard to potty train her when she gets older. (She has gone on the potty once already :))

On June 23 Kinzlie was also in her first beauty pageant called beehive beauties. We all had a lot of fun getting ready and participating in the pageant (I especially loved making her costumes).  She did such a great job, and was bright and bubblily on stage. She didn't win the pageant but I think it was such a great experience for her and I both :)
