At 8 months 5 days 17 hours and 15 minutes Kerrigan....
...is suddenly outgrowing clothes.On Sunday I put her in a 3 month dress and it barely covered her bloomers...oops! She outgrew her pink shoes (sad day) and her sleep sack (that's ok, I love her footie pj's).
...has been sitting on her own for 2 months.
...has 5 teeth she will not allow to be photographically documented!
...has attended her first concert (Good Morning America's David Cook, KRIS ALLEN and Adam Lambert).
...is such a good baby, she lets us just strap her on and take her anywhere. Cynda and I meandered around Central Park/ NYC for awhile. Even though she had been awake since before 5 am (unheard of in her world) she did not cry once the entire day!
(pardon the AWFUL picture, my exposure compensation was at +1.5)
...has just discovered I put bows on her head, and enjoys removing them...RATS!
...Says mama if she needs something, dadadada whenever daddy is around, Ka for Kerrigan nanana just to make noise and baba for Uncle Ben. She also growls (more of a roar), and does not see the necesity of holding back during church.
...bounces on her bum like she is on a trampoline (refer any questions to Jason Arbuckle).
...does not see the point of naps, or sleeping in general. I used to be able to put her in her crib at night and she would fall right to sleep for 10-12 hrs. Now that I am putting her in her crib for naps she cries EVERY TIME she goes down, and is only sleeping8-9 hours at night. BLAH!
...likes to pull herself up on anything solid.
....enjoys a smorgasbord of foods. Yesterday she figured out how to pick up Cheerios and put them in her mouth- she is VERY PROUD of herself! A good thing, considering the fact that she will soon be getting weaned (she likes to exhibit her new teeth during nursing...I do NOT support the exhibition!)
...scoots around on her bum as her main mode of transportation. However, yesterday, this occurred (don't listen to my annoying voice, por favor!):
