Alara @ eight months

Alara @ Eight Months 
  • Alara has been officially evicted from our room! On Monday, my husband strongly suggested that it was time for Alara to move permanently into her own room. I was hesitant. She has been waking up several times during the night and honestly I didn't want to keep going from my bed to her room all night long.  But, he was insistent that she would sleep better in her own room and so far my husband had been right. Alara has been sleeping so much better and wakes up once or twice during the night. 
  • In addition to moving out of our bedroom, Alara's two bottom teeth finally came in. She has been rolling her tongue over her teeth all week. I don't think she knows what to do with her new teeth yet. 
  • She has mastered crawling. Alara can quickly crawl from one end of the house to the other. I've been keeping her busy by scattering her favorite toys all over the living room. Lucas and I enjoy watching her crawl from toy to toy. We both shout out encouragements and cheer when she finds a new toy.  
  • While holding tightly onto stationary objects (the sofa, chairs, the bed etc.), Alara will take small uncertain steps. It's only a matter of time before she is officially walking. 
  • She loves to eat! Alara has tried many different fruits and vegetables. So far she hasn't shown a preference for a particular food - everything is yummy!  
  • She loves soft things - teddy bears, cotton balls, batting fabric, blankets..etc. 
  • When Alara get excited she  will scrunch up her nose, squint her eyes tightly and kick her little legs back and forth as fast as possible. It is adorable.
