Hey Love Bug! It’s time for your monthly review, and you’re already 8 months! I know I’m doing the bare minimum here lately with your childhood memory blog. I’m trying to do better. But, I am soaking up every minute with you in real life!
You are growing so fast, and you are so wild, so curious, so determined, so loving, and so sweet.
I let you grow at your own pace. I let you do (most) things on your own terms. My philosophy is you will let me know when you’re ready for things and you really have. So, as your mom, I support, love, and encourage you as grow.
I parent you so that you will become an independent, self-confident, comfortable, and successful adult. If you’re these things at 18, great. If you’re these things at 28, that’s okay too. I’ll be here to encourage, guide, be a shoulder to cry on, and be a rock to lean on until the day I die. I will be here for you whenever you need me. You’re my baby today, and you’ll always be my child.
Please remember I am human and make mistakes. My intentions hold only good will and love. So, when I make a mistake please forgive me. My love is unconditional and your best interests are always my first priority.
Happy First Mother’s Day

- Crawling – you’re zooming around
- Trying to walk – you’ve almost got it! You stood up on your own the other day with no support! Just you and a DVD case.
- Being adventurous
- Eating carpet
- Eating any and all food
- The cat – you two are serious buds
You really don’t have many dislikes! I know as you get older these will develop. So, I’ll cherish these day to day easy going times.
Oh, and before I forget you’re getting your first tooth! You’re doing great with it.
