8 months old!

Ok, I'm 4 days late but Mackenna turned 8 months old on Saturday! She is growing so much every day and becoming such a little lady!

She is pulling herself up on EVERYTHING. She started about a week ago. I was doing some work on the computer and I looked up and this is what I saw! YIKES! She is really strong. She can stand up and only have to use one hand to hold on. She is beginning to learn how to walk when her hands are held.

She is eating a lot of solid food now. She likes fruits the best but has had: sweet potatoes, peas, pears, apples, bananas, avocado, prunes, mixed veggies. She is also eating puffs and yogurt melts. She is getting better at getting them in her mouth! We are still waiting on a couple of teeth. She has been teething for what seems like forever without any popping through yet. She is sleeping a bit better than a couple of weeks ago. It seems like she has traded her lack of sleeping at night for lack of sleeping during the day, however. We are working on that!

She has learned to patty cake and almost to wave. She gets really excited anytime somebody she knows comes into the room.
We are have had and are looking forward to a fun week! Fun with Taylor and Jacob, Meredith and Joshua on Monday, Fun with Sawyer and Annika on Tuesday, Fun with Addilyn, Seth, Oliver, and Micah on Wednesday, Jacob's bday, Nana's trick or treating, and Madison's first orchestra concert on Thursday (AND moving into town. Yes, we are crazy) , gym day on Friday, Jacob's bday party on Saturday, and Halloween at the Dauc's on Sunday! WOOOOO! Somewhere in there is packing, moving, and unpacking, too! I think I need a nap just thinking about it!
