Macey - 8 months!

Macey is 8 months old and is so much fun! She is a little sensitive sometimes, but we still love her.
Macey had her 6 month check up in August. These were her stats then, I'm sure they have increased by now!
WEIGHT: 17 lbs, 12 oz. - 80%
LENGTH: 25 3/4 in. - 47%
HEAD: 17 1/4 in. - 83%
Macey likes to just be part of the action. Whatever is going on, she is content to watch it happen. Sitting in the shopping cart, watching me cook dinner from her high chair, or crawling after Maddie, she is happy to be part of our family. And we are happy she is part of ours!

She loves her Uncle Derrick so much! She kicks her feet and flaps her arms and squeals when she sees him. He is so wonderful with our girls and we are so lucky to have him in our lives. He took Macey out to draw with sidewalk chalk on the porch one morning - so fun!

Macey's first ponytail! And the first picture of her bottom teeth! 

Macey shopping at JoAnn's Fabrics! She feels like such a big girl now that she can sit up in the front of the cart by herself.

Macey loves to splash and play with toys in the bathtub! Can you tell?

She is a happy girl and has accomplished a lot in her short life...
  • sits up on her own
  • crawls
  • pulls herself up on everything
  • says Mama, Dada, & baba
  • claps her hands
  • raises her hands above her head and say "Tada!" - my favorite!
  • throws a ball - and she has a pretty good arm!
  • stands on her own
  • walks if she can hold your hands
  • has her two bottom teeth
We love our sweet Macey bug, but no one loves Macey as much as Maddie does. These two girls LIVE for each other and can't stand to be apart.

We are STILL working on getting Macey to sleep through the night (don't ask) and when she fusses a little on her way to dream land, Maddie gets big, wide eyes and says, "Mom! Macey's awake! Can we go get her?" I have to physically restrain Maddie from running in Macey's room and thwarting my efforts of a full night's sleep.

This video is from a few months ago, but I love it. It shows Macey's true personality. She is content to just play on the floor by herself as long as she has toys to chew on.

Macey's other favorite past time is jumping. She loves to jump on your lap when you hold her hands, but she really loves to jump in the jumparoo Grandma bought for her to jump in. She literally will jump for 40 minutes straight. It seems like quite a workout and she is thinning out from her jumping sessions. She is so thrilled to be able to jump independently.

We feel so blessed to have our two beautiful little girls who bring so much happiness into our lives. They are so sweet and loving and bring the spirit of Christ into our home every day.
