April 17th means Cailyn is 8 months old!! How great and how sad. She is growing so nicely, she is such a pretty girl, great temperament and a pure delight!! Sadly, she is growing..no more little baby...now, a more independent girl. It is such a pleasure to share the days with her (and the nights..most of the time). Today I went to the mall to buy a birthday gift for Cailyn's little friend Tori who turns 1 this week. At the mall, many people stopped and commented on how cute or pretty Cailyn is. It is odd that people do this, or maybe I just think it is odd, regardless, it is nice of people to make these wonderful comments. We are working on Cailyn's eating independence, trying to get her to pick up pieces of food and self feed. She can pick up food, but getting it into her mouth still needs work.

7:00 am - wake up
7:30 am - have 5 oz bottle

10:20 am - into the exersaucer, try to eat the plastic tray in the exersaucer
10:30 am - squeal and cry in frustration or pain as the plastic is hard and does not taste good
10:45 am - out of the exersaucer, playing with mommy, giving mommy lots of full on open mouth kisses
fast forward to 3:30 pm - doing a day care inspection and interview, Cailyn leans over to kiss mommy and CHOMPS down on mommy's lip like a pit pull, locked in with her two teeth, crunching away on mommy's lower lip
9:00 pm - mommy's lip is swollen and hurts like hell
Happy 8th month b-day baby, we love you!!!
