Two Teeth and Almost Crawling

At almost 8 months, Peyton has two bottom teeth and is pretty close to crawling. She's definitely on all fours and rocking back and forth and moving backward. She can also turn herself 360 degrees from her tummy. She's growing up fast and going through lots of stages.

Right now she likes:

- Austen. Still no one can make her smile/laugh like Austen.

- Adler. Her second favorite. She enjoys getting kisses from Adler and grabbing fur.

- Her pink spotted giraffe blanket. It's her favorite blanket to sleep with and we will often find her with it under face like it's her pillow. I've also caught her sucking its ears!

- Playing in her brother's room. Since she's not crawling yet, it's still safe for her to play in his room. Put her on the rug and Austen brings her a ball and his Cookie Monster and Elmo cars and toy bus. And, sometimes, if he's feeling generous he'll even let her play with his Little People bus.

What she doesn't like lately:

- Riding in her car seat! My usually happy kid detests being strapped into her car seat and forced to face backward where she can't see anyone. As soon as I shut the door, I can hear her screaming. Makes for a nice car ride. Hopefully this phase will pass soon!

- The sun in her eyes. I'm sure most babies and kids detest this but she can sure whine when that sun hits her straight in the eyes and there's no way to block her from it in her stroller or the car seat.

- Leaving her. She's in that phase now if she's awake and you walk out of the room for a minute to go get something, she certainly will notice and let you know that she knows you're gone.


  • So cute Karyn! I can't believe she is 8 months old! Time flies!
