8 months old!

Yesterday our little Cate turned 8 months old!

Last weekend we enjoyed a nice three days off.  Cate took her first dip in our pool, although it was a little chilly.  We also took an outing to a "local" (45 minutes away) cloth diaper store for their grand opening.  Hey, at least Erick got to eat at a good restaurant while were there! He was a good sport, though, and acted enthused as I talked about the different diapers!

Cate finally will do a "real" crawl with her tummy off the floor (when she feels like it).  She is also working on her standing skills.  She has had more than one bruise on her forehead where she thinks she can let go for a little longer than she really can.  She has started to move very slowly between pieces of furniture (or mom and dad).  She is also clapping and even waving! We think MAYBE she said mama one time (and Erick insists when she cried at night she was saying it, but I am doubtful!).  Unfortunately, one "skill" she has acquired is biting, especially Erick and I.  She doesn't seem to understand the concept of "no", yet, but we keep trying!  She has only bitten one of her teachers so far.


  1. Popping over from Stuff Parents Need. What a cutie you have!

    In regards to the baking soda shampoo, the newer formula I listed (3 parts water, 1 part baking soda) is working much better. I used it this morning and my hair feels totally clean! People say that after a week or so, you'll notice that your hair doesn't get dirty as fast and you can go several days without washing it at all. We'll see...that could be tougher in the summer, I think. I'll keep you posted! (btw, you might want to put your email in your blogger profile just in case you are entering giveaways and such...makes it easier to tell you that you won!).

  2. She is soooooo cute! Enjoy this time...it'll fly by!
