The 8th month is such a happy month! There’s so much laughter, and smiles, and milestones.
We’re enjoying this time we don’t need to chase them around just yet, knowing that they’ll be crawling all over the place soon. Like, really soon, because just the other day we caught on video how Rain crawled from one end of the mat to the other end just to get a toy. A-ma-zing! I’m not sure “crawling” is the word I’d use to describe what Dawn does, mostly she’s rolling over and doing cartwheels. You know, cheerleader stuff!
There was a time last month when we would sing “Happy birthday to you” every single day because it made Dawn happy. Like, she would be smiling from ear to ear at the sound of the happy birthday song, as if it’s her birthday everyday. Rain liked it too at first, until maybe she realized that we’re just singing it to make fun of them. Smart kid.
That’s exactly what’s happening in the photos above. Husband and I were singing “Happy birthday to you”,
and Dawn goes, “Yay it’s my birthday everyday woohoo! And I have cake!”
and Rain goes, “They’re singing that song again. Oh, what is that bright, burning thing?”
Haha. These two.
Happy 8th month bebegirls. We love you.
