Adventures of Rebekah: 8 Months

Rebekah Elise,
You are 8 months old! What an exciting month we had... 

Our biggest adventure last month was taking a road trip to Virginia so that Daddy could be a groomsman in a wedding. We drove, and you got to see 5 new states. We stayed overnight in West Virginia and you got to see your cousins and meet your Great-great grandma.

(5 generations all together ~ very special!)

(All dresses up for the wedding!)

You are getting more mobile every day. Your army crawl is so cute and speedy. When you see something you want, it takes no time at all for you to get to it. You love zooming around in your walker and like to chase Mommy and Daddy around and around the island in the kitchen. A few times you have even pulled yourself up from sitting to standing (a big surprise for Mommy when you did it the first time!)

(can you spot the new teeth?!)

Eating is always an adventure! This month you got two little baby teeth on the bottom of your mouth and wow are they sharp! Mommy had to teach you not to bite while nursing - a lesson you thankfully learned fairly quick. You still eat only pureed food - and your favorite is still avocado. This month we tried a few new foods like squash, mango, and nectarines. You like most food that you are offered, and really enjoy eating at the table with Mommy and Daddy.

Now that the weather is warmer, we have been spending more time outside. We go on walks and visit the park up the street. You got to go on the swing for the first time this month and you LOVED it.

You are such a happy girl. You are always exploring, learning, and growing. Most nights you sleep for 10 hours straight, and most days you take 2 naps. You have been doing such a good job sleeping in your crib in your own room. You are constantly wiggling and giggling and just a joy to be with! 
Mommy and Daddy love you so much, our special girl! 


  1. Precious memories for sure. She is a cutie pie.
