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 :)
