Lily at 8 Months

J was laughing with Lily the other day after all his cousins had gone home. He looked at me and said, “Mom I’m so glad I have a little sister, I just love her.”

Lily is pretty mobile even though she isn’t crawling. She rolls or scoots everywhere. She tries to crawl and gets so frustrated when she can’t.

She still sleeps great for naps and during the night. She occasionally wakes up with a cold, growing pains, or teeth! Yep, on Easter Sunday she was so sad and I figured she was growing or tired. J didn’t get teeth till about 10 months so it didn’t even cross my mind. Monday I was feeding her little pieces of dried apple and she bit down on my finger and I felt a tooth! Later that day I tried looking at it and discovered 2 bottom teeth!

She mimics a lot of sounds but still hasn’t said,”mama” or “dada.” Her fav sounds are the pig snort and a hiss.

When she’s mad she balls her fists and turns red(wee bit feisty)

She loves all food and will spit her binky out and grab for whatever you have with lightning speed. BUT she still does not like sweet potatoes but loves green beans and peas!?

Nurses 5x a day + 2 solid food meals and a few snacks

She waves hi/bye

While I’m nursing her she’ll pinch my neck, back of my arm or my finger.

Twirls her hands and feet constantly

Still laughs the hardest for Jackson

Her hair is a strawberry blonde

Lights up and squeals when dad comes home(this pic is when he walked in the room during our photo shoot:))

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
