I do not know why I get sooo sad when I think about her growing up... Maybe it is a mommy thing or maybe I am just a nut (I'm not sure)
Anyway, as I sit on my couch while my little angel is asleep upstairs I can't help but reminisce over the past 8 months. It really does seem like just yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital. She rocked our world more than we could have ever imagined but I can honestly say that I have loved every minute of it (well almost every minute of it) haha But, I wouldn't trade one second of the time we have had with our first born baby girl.
It is amazing how much has changed in just the last few months. Josselyn now eats a wide variety of baby food and she loves puffs! She can even eat some table food (bananas, bread, & thanks to her naughty Aunties things like whip cream, cookies & who knows what else!) She loves being Miss Independent and feeding herself with her spoon and she is quite proud of herself now that she can pick up her puffs and put them in her own mouth. She has learned how to drink from a sippy-cup and yes even a BOTTLE (Hallelujah!!!) Josse can sit up by herself, clap her hands and even wave bye bye. However my very favorite thing she has learned how to do is give mommy big, wet, sloppy, open mouth kisses! Her baby kisses absolutely melt my heart. Josselyn has also learned how to be quite mobile... she can roll all over the place, follow after you in a baby walker and recently she has leaned how to scoot towards whatever object she has fixed her eyes on! She is a little chatter box and she can say words like "MaMa" "DaDa" "YaYa" "baba" and she even try's to say "hi" "bye bye" and "thank you". And like I blogged about last week my big girl has finally cut her first tooth (you can definitely see it now when she smiles)
Her personality has certainly began to develop as well. She can be soooo silly at times (especially when she is tired), or she can be the happiest, smiley-est baby you have ever seen! Sometimes she gets in these serious mood (and absolutely NO ONE can make her smile) and at other times she can be a bit strong willed (mainly when I am trying to change her diaper). I love watching her personality develop & I know she is going to become an incredible WORLD CHANGER!
I am certainly learning to cherish every moment I have with my baby, because as cliche as it is... they do grow up so fast!
HAPPY 8 MONTHS JOSSELYN GRACE ALCALA
