Crazy 8


Poor Madeline!  She technically isn’t eight months old yet, but as February doesn’t have 29 days this year, we’re probably allowed to celebrate early! 

  • Madeline *finally* got her front end and back end talking to each other, and she’s properly crawling!
  • Baby gate is installed so that she doesn’t back herself down the stairs to the basement – she’s lightning-fast at moving backwards!
  • Weighs 16 lbs, 14 ounces, and is 27.5 inches long/tall
  • Bathes in the big tub and it’s quite an adventure to keep her from drinking the bathwater or trying to taste the shiny drain *groan*
  • Continues to like spoons better than any food that they may transport, but she’s now tried green beans and butternut squash. 
  • Drinks sparingly from one of these Rubbermaid straw containers or the Avent sippy cups. 
  • Emits lovely little babbles!  She does say "mum-mum-mum" and "dad-dad-dad" but we don’t think that she’s talking about us, or to us, yet 🙂
  • Has figured out how to clap her hands, which makes "pat-a-cake" a lot more interactive!

  1. Congratulations on the crawling!!! I knew she could do it!! I also knew that I shouldn’t take that “backwards slide technique” to mean she wanted to get away from me.


  2. Congratulations Madeline!! You look just beautiful. Look at all these awesome milestones you have accomplished. And I think you say Ma-ma and Da-da on purpose 🙂
