Santa's coming to town! (8 month update)

Have YOU finished your shopping?

I haven't! I am almost done though, I am always one of those frantic people at the mall spending unnecessary money to make sure I have enough for everyone. It is Jaliyah's first Christmas and I am SO excited. She's at such a good age for a first Christmas. I have to make sure my video camera is charged.

Jaliyah is 22 lbs 16 oz; She is in size 9-12m tops and 18m bottoms and can now..

Pull herself up on things - to standing
Walk along furniture
Stand alone without holding onto anything for a few seconds
Say da-da (and know who it is)
Self feed
Blow raspberries on me :)

Many of you know my struggle with getting Jaliyah to be independent. We are still co-sleeping but she can now put herself to sleep with no rocking/shhh-ing or anything. I just have to lay her down and she goes to sleep. She also is great playing by herself for awhile but she loves to follow mommy around too. She loves babbling and discovering new sounds she can make. I cannot believe how big she is getting. She is also (finally) on a great schedule for her and I! We struggled so much with this because I work and go to school, but I've had a few days off and was able to work on a good schedule. She is well rested and much happier, which means a happier mommy!

We did Christmas pictures on her 8 month birthday, so we will not be doing 9 month pictures. Instead we will wait until April and do her 1 year pictures! Wow, only 4 months away! I hope you all have an AMAZING holiday. Also, if there is anything you would like to see reviewed, discussed, or have any questions - leave a comment :)
