Miss Nora is some how 8 months old already!! Two thirds of a year has passed since I was in the hospital welcoming our 3rd little miracle into this world. Someone let me know if they find the pause button for life because time is going by way too fast!

8 months, she is growing up so fast! This past month has seen a lot of development for Miss Nora. This age is so fun and so many changes happen so fast. The biggest change is that she is now mobile! And, truly, she couldn’t be happier. She follows the cat and her sisters all over the house. I am in a constant struggle with the little toys that belong to the big girls. No matter how hard I try to keep the little things out of her reach I feel like I am constantly fishing something out of her mouth that she shouldn’t have. Now that she is mobile the possibilities are limitless and she just loves exploring and finding whatever she can that she probably shouldn’t have! She is a total stinker!
As you can see she is sitting up very well on her own now and has begun trying to get herself into a seated position on her own. I don’t anticipate it will be much longer before she has that perfected. And that is not all, she has even started trying to pull up on things as well. I keep trying to tell her I can only handle one big milestone at a time but I don’t think there is any slowing this girl down. She is determined and adventurous!
Breastfeeding is still going really well. She has started eating more solids and seems to really enjoy it. She has already entered the “I want to do it myself” phase. She much prefers chucks of food or a handful of cheerios on her tray to eating the purees. The two new teeth she has are making it much easier. And the two top teeth that are trying to make their way out will help even more.
I thought life was busy before but it just keeps getting busier. Keeping up with these three girls of mine is a full time job, and now that Nora is mobile and trying her best to keep up with the other two I’m really feeling outnumbered!
I love watching my girls grow up and seeing all the new things they learn and watching them explore the world around them, but I wouldn’t mind hitting pause and keeping things just the way they are for a little while. But, since that isn’t possible I will do my best to enjoy these fleeting moments.
