Colbie has learned how to scream. She does it all the time now and it drives me insane. But I can't blame her because when you are competing with a couple of two year olds for attention you have to pull out all the stops!
Some days, like today, she gets tired of me. She fusses and fusses. And just to prove to her daddy how much of an exaggerator I am, she puts on her happy face as soon as he gets home. What a little smarty.
This little rascal has mastered the art of being
She loves to eat solids. She loves them so much that the only time she wants to nurse is if she is trying to go to sleep.
When Colbie sees something she likes, she expresses her excitement with her whole body. She kicks her legs, wiggles from side to side, and fist pumps. Okay, she may not "fist pump" exactly, but it is her 8 month old version of it.
She has reached for me once, just to show that she can do it.
If I am holding her, and someone reaches for her she will pull back and turn her head. A clear and definitive "don't you take me from my mama!"
When she is tired of eating, she doesn't grab at the spoon or turn her head. She simply clamps her mouth shut. It is the cutest expression I have ever seen. One of these days I'll get a picture of it.
That pretty much sums Colbie up for now!
