It's hard to believe that time is passing this quickly, but Juliette is 8 months old already!! She has had a big month in terms of learning new things. She sits on her own, babbles quite a lot (mostly saying dadadada), she can now get down onto her tummy from sitting and is trying to get to where she wants to go. She isn't crawling yet, but she manages to roll and stretch to get to whatever it is she wants to play with. She has pushed herself backwards a few times, so I would expect some forward movement soon. She is a very happy and smiley baby and has been laughing quite a lot lately - she has a good belly chuckle just like Ben did. She really enjoys most foods she eats, but especially seems to be fond of the meats (which is pretty unlike Ben and Abbey at this stage). We will be trying her on some coarser foods soon in hopes of getting to table food before too long. She went in for her 8 month appointment and weighed in at 17 pounds, 2 ounces and was 26 and 5/8 inches long (putting her in the 40th percentile for weight). She is doing great and we are so proud of her!!
