Gonna get the doggie!

Gibson is a very protective older brother.  It is obvious that he loves his baby sister.  He will give her sweet kisses and if anyone else comes near her, watch out! He will bark and bark as if to say, "hey! you are not her mom! back off!"  

But if she comes near him...

Oh no she di'int!

Haha, now that Hadley is mobile, she is terrorizing the poor dog!  He was asleep on his chair and she just went over to say bug him..

She thinks it's hilarious!

Gibson.. not so much.  I don't blame him that much though.. when she does get her paws on him, she doesn't pet.. she grabs fur!  Ouchie!   I am trying to teach her 'gentle'.   Hopefully they can interact better together at  some point soon :)

Until then.. it's pretty funny...

Whoops

I kind of forgot about the 'ol blog here.  Sorry about that.  Let's just say life's been a little crazy the past few weeks.  Like a my-baby-gets-up-every-hour-in-the-middle-of-the-night kind of crazy.  I will try to get back on track soon.   In the meantime... here's a cute pic of Gibson!

The less and less Hadley sleeps, the cuter and cuter Gibson gets haha.

Hadley plays fetch with Gibson

I've been excited for Hadley to be big enough that she could play fetch with Gibson and she finally is!  Although, I thought she'd be the one tossing Gibson the ball, not the one that does the fetching ;)



Excuse my mess of a house and the fact that Hadley's outfit is not buttoned :)

8 Months

DSC_7043

Hadley baby turned 8 months on Friday!  And holy cow, SO much happened this month!  It's like she saved up all of her milestones to happen all at once.  First off, she's crawling!!!



After months of rocking and scooting backwards or in a circle, the girl all of sudden can crawl!  And she gets better at it every day. I'm truly amazed by babies!

She also can now sit up on her own no matter what position she is in.  It is so cute!  I now walk in to get her out of her crib and she's sitting up in a corner.  Adorable, I swear!  But it makes me sad that she is growing up so fast.  This is the first time I've really felt like she moving from being a baby to a toddler.  *Sigh* My sweet thing.

Another thing she does now.. she won't let me change her diaper!  As soon as I set her on her back, she flips over to her tummy and tries to crawl away.  So much fun!! (ha!)

Another new development.. she babbles like crazy :) Check her out in the tub:



She talks way more than me and her dad do! Such a little nut.  Oh and speaking of bath time... I can no longer leave her alone while I go get her bath ready, so I usually bring her with me and she sits on the floor naked while I fill her tub.  Well, she's been peeing EVERY TIME I set her down, so I broke down and bought her first potty!  And guess what?  She's peed every time I've sat her down on it! Is that crazy?  An 8 month old already starting to potty train?  Whatever, I'll take it :)


Other firsts this month...

Her first ride in a swing!

Oh and she can wave now!  Although, I'm not sure she really understands what it means.. but I'm trying to teach her hi and bye :)

In baby health news... Not sure if  you've noticed, but she has a red patch of eczema on her left cheek that we've been battling with for months.  It was so bad a month or so ago that it was constantly bleeding and oozing.  So gross.  Well, It is doing so much better now! Mainly because, since I am still nursing her, I have given up dairy :(  I know, it sucks.. but it seems to be helping my babe so I gotta do what I gotta do.  Still not sure that it is what is helping her or if it's just clearing up on her own or it's the lotion I bought her or what.. but I'm just going to keep at it.

In sleep news, she is not sleeping.   Well, I take that back.  She has become a great napper.  She usually gets about 3 hours of nap time a day, which is normal for a baby her age.  Nighttime sleeping is another story.  She's usually up every hour.  *sigh*  Right now, I am on day 5 of sleep training (the no cry method) and she is at least able to fall back asleep without me having to pick her up.  Only problem is that she does not stay asleep.  Separation anxiety is a big reason. Apparently it kicks in around 7.5 months for a lot of babies and it has for her in a big way.  For a few weeks straight she cried every time I got up and walked a few feet from her.  So, we're working on getting her used to me being away.  She's definitely getting better during the day, so maybe sleep will come soon.  Hopefully.  Or I might seriously become a zombie soon.

Ok, I think that's it.  Here are some obligatory cute Hadley pics for you! :)
