7 month update

Baby girl is now 8 months old.  Time is sure flying!  What has happened during her 7th month?  She is still exclusively breastfed, 16.5lbs.  She has 2 top teeth now (so 4 in total).  She starting getting up on her knees and rocking back and forth.  She can sit unassisted for short periods of time.  Still no words yet but lots of babbles.  She loves to laugh at the kids and her laugh is so contagious.  She is such a happy girl but is still weary of strangers.  Definitely a mama's girl right now.
We also had excitement and an ER visit as our boy let a staph infection in his finger get out of control before showing us what was going on!!  He had it lanced and drained at the ER and put on a strong antibiotic.  We did use herbs and homeopathy as well, and his finger is healing up nicely.  Hopefully this has broken his habit of nail biting now!!!  Not the way he was hoping to spend his 12th birthday :)

    Baby girl has already turned 7 months!  She got her first 2 teeth (first one on her 6 month birthday) and got her first cold.  Fortunately it wasn't a bad one but she did have a croupy cough which sounded horrible.
    Hubby also had another surgery on his throat.  It's been 5 years since the last one, so we are very thankful for the extended length of time this time around!  We were able to visit with family whom we haven't seen for several years.  
    Kids are all doing well....getting through their school year, enjoying the outdoors, growing like weeds!!!  I think I now have 2 kiddos taller than me.  Our 11 (soon to be 12) yr old has been going through such a growth spurt lately.
Here's some updated pics of them all!!!

Visit to Grandma and Grandpa

Here are a few pics from our quick trip to Canada!  Baby girl was getting close to rolling over while we were there and finally did as soon as we got home.  She is so proud of herself :)

So we have had 2 more girls!!  It was so neat to see the twins born since we missed Dolly having her baby.  Molly's girls are officially named.
Meet Maddy(black) and Marley(brown).

Can you tell I love this little baby too!  I think the kids have settled on the name DJ for this gal (from the parents - Dolly and Jack)  Hoping our other female is pregnant as signs yet though.

Birthday pics

These pics come a week early, but our girl is about to turn 3 soon!  What a handful this little gal is.  She has a huge vocabulary and good sentence structure for her age (compared to our other kids at that age).  She definitely tells you what is on her mind and what she wants.  She is very expressive with words and facial expressions.  She loves being with all her siblings and especially loves her new little sister.  She certainly adds excitement around here :)  We love you!
