8 Months Old

Uncategorized August 20, 2009

It is getting harder and harder to get clear pictures of Wren because she is always on the go! (and I prefer not to use flash). Yesterday she turned 8 months old. She weighs in at 16 pounds (a far cry from the 4 pound, 9 ounces she weighed when we brought her home!) and while she may be small, she sure thinks she is a big girl! She crawls, stands, LOVES to walk and of course her favorite toys are not toys at all, they are dogs. She finally has some hair, and while it is really getting longer it is still soooo fine that you can barely make it out in pictures and I think it may even be a little red!


If you have not seen baby ruffles around you have to take a look! They are like baby legs, but are ruffled for girls and go over their feet too, which I really like. Oh yeah, and they come in the most elusive baby clothing color: black!

    Oooh! Oooh!! Where did you find your baby ruffles?! I use the baby legs for my DD & love them… but to have feet on them would be even better!

    Wren is too cute for words!! Congratulations on such a healthy & adorable daughter!

    So cute!
    A year ago while attending a baby and mommy class, the teacher commented on how she had never seen a child wear so much black…referring to my daughter.

    She is precious…and I LOVE her name!

    I was reading back through your entries and wondered, did you ever show the AFTER pictures of the bathroom redo you were beginning right before you went into early labor with Wren?

    She is such a CUTIE! It's funny, I hit 36 weeks today, and remember reading on your blog that you had her at 35 weeks. ;0) She has grown so much, and I need some of those baby ruffles!

    Oh my! I can't believe how big she's getting!!!! Isn't it so much different now that she's on the move??!

    I wonder if Isabel will be able to wear the ruffles? I have some baby legs for her, but she can't wear them…her thighs are too chunky!!!! (and i'm afraid it'll cut off circulation or something)
