Eden at eight months

Eden is eight months old today. Time is certainly flying by for me. Eden is growing up and we finally got her a bang trim to go along with her "older" age. Trimming bangs on an almost 8-month-old is not the easiest thing to do and so they are a little crooked. Oh well, we brush the bangs to the side and pretend they are supposed to be like that.

I finally dug out all of Emma and Avery's 12 month/12-18 month spring and summer clothing and added them to Eden's closet. I must say it expanded her wardrobe hugely! The girl should not be lacking in spring and summer clothes unless we hit a freak cold spell over the next few months. It is so much fun to pull out the other girls old clothing and remember them wearing the same outfits. And Eden is continuing to fill the clothes out at an early pace. The outfit she is wearing today and these pictures is a 12-18 month outfit.

Eden doesn't seem as interested in her bottle lately for some reason. I can only get her to take 4 oz. at a time right now. I'm not sure if it is because she is teething, has a cold or a combination of the two. It seems early to introduce the sippy cup but if she continues shying away from the bottle, we might try it soon. She does a good job eating her baby food though and we eat a lot of it now - morning, noon and night. And we have ventured into the meat foods (chicken and applesauce, turkey and rice, etc.) but I think her favorite is still the fruit. Give her mango or banana and blueberries any day.

She laughs a lot and her two big sisters love to help take care of her. She is sitting better on her own but I'm not sure how long it would last. She isn't crawling yet but she does still enjoy lying on the floor and rolling around or jumping around in her jumperoo.
