8 month Nevs News

Where does the time go? I thought yesterday I called Peter and told him I was headed to the hospital. Today, boom 8 months. Well 8 months and 4 days to be exact. I will try to give you a quick update on the last 3 months!
5 months- Nevs got her first 2 teeth! They seemed to pop up out of nowhere! One day she's a toothless old man look alike and the next day, hello teeth!! Between 5 and 6 months Nevs started sitting up. At first she sat there for a second and then fell backwards, but not too long later she found her balance quite nicely and has been a sitting champ ever since.
6 months. Nevs started army crawling. More like worm crawling. It was pretty rad to watch, but that only lasted a week or so before she came full force hands and knees tearing up and down the house. Now she could enter a speed crawling race. Especially if you put something awesome in front of her like: your cell phone, a piece of paper, a beer bottle. These are the things that seems to get Nevs especially physced. Don't ask me.
7 months. Nevs started pulling herself up on everything. Chairs, walls, people, ovens, dogs. We also recently (in the last month or so) discovered Nevaeh's love for animals! It started off with Mimi and Grandpa's dog Reka. She would get so excited whenever Reka entered the room, trying to get to her however possible. Then in continued with Nana and Papa's dog Tatum. Tatum makes her laugh and squeal! Then this last weekend when we were in San Diego, we discovered it's not just doggies but cats as well. She had one eye on a cat the whole weekend. Cats are a little more patient with her. She can pull their fur and they put up with it for a little but longer than the doggies do. Also Nevaeh started saying "MAMAMAMAMAM" And while it warms my heart, she doesn't know it's me. I discovered this when she started pounding on our vacuum cleaner box saying "Mamamam." I gently reminded her that the vacuum cleaner is not her Mommy, but that I am.
And now here we are 8 months. Nevaeh is getting three top teeth. One has broken through and two are visible. Everyday is a gift. I won't take one for granted. She lights up our life every day. Peter and I have been listening and reading all about raising children, and well we definitely know we have our work cut out for us. And we couldn't be more excited.
