Eight Months

Saylor turned eight months old today.  How is that possible? She is growing and changing so quickly, but we are doing our best to soak it all in while we can.  Before I list out the new happenings in her life this month, I have to list the most important thing that occurred in the past month. On January 16, we hit the milestone where she has been with us longer than without us, with a forever family longer than without one, with a forever mommy and daddy longer than without one.  I could just cry thinking about it, and my heart still breaks for all the children who are waiting to hit this milestone someday.  On January 16, Troy and I were once again reminded of God’s faithfulness in completing his perfect plan in creating our family.

As in previous posts, below I have listed what is new for Saylor over the past month. 

-she is now consistently clapping her hands, and she especially enjoys imitating someone else clapping

-she has an emerging army crawl that she just began demonstrating this week…..I have a feeling she will be into everything once she masters it!

-she has added blueberries and zucchini squash to her diet, and she is improving with her pincer grasp with eating puffs and yogurt melts

-she went to the nursery at church for the 1st time this past Sunday and she did great

- she has also benefitted from Mammaw’s great sewing skills which scored her the purple outfit as well as the Valentine’s dress in the pictures below
