8 month stats

17.6 lbs and 26.5-27 inches. We couldn't get the exact length because my poor baby was so tired and fussy.That's almost 2 inches longer in ONE month!And almost a full pound.My sweet baby is growing up so fast.
She had three shots and didn't take those so well.She screamed and cried like crazy.She also didn't want the pedi to measure her head.I almost felt bad for the pedi today until I remembered how much money he must make.

8 months!

Yesterday,my sweet baby girl turned 8 months.3/4 OF A YEAR! WTF for real.I do not know where time is going,but I wish it would slow the hell down.
I saw a woman at the mall yesterday with a newborn baby.. maybe a week old tops.I felt instantly broken. I was wearing Nattie in the Beco Gemini carrier and I just hugged her.I can't believe that those days are gone!
Everything new she does is so fun and amazing. She is learning and growing so fast I can't even keep up with her. I love to see her grow,but it breaks me apart knowing that one day she will not want me to hold on to her as tight as I can.
I took her 8 month old photos today.The lighting in my house is not the greatest so I didn't have much to work with..but you at least get to see this super duper adorable baby!!

Getting healthy for Natalie's sake

I guess when it comes down to it, I have never really cared enough about myself to be healthy for me.I do care about my health,but not as much as I should.So this is me putting in words that it WILL happen.
I do not want Natalie to worry about me growing up. I do not want her to lose her mother at a young age. I am not sick. I am just not fit and I do not have healthy habits.
All of this will happen gradually obviously.I am thinking of giving up something new every week that is in my diet that makes me unhealthy.
Week 1 - Soda.
I started today and have gone all day without a soda.This is really good for me!

Natalie is growing up so fast. She is working on her second tooth. I am pretty sure she hit a growth spurt because she seems so big to me now. She scoots all over the house and bounces all over.Her personality is so big and brilliant! She is everything to me.She is all smiles.She still plays peek-a-boo daily for about an thirty minutes each time. She gets so sad if we quit playing. She says dada and mama to both me and her dad.
I could not ask for more <3
