So last night I went and took a concealed carrying class with Luke. So Tommi was left with her daddy, pappy, big mama, and uncle Chase. I was gone for about 3 to 3.5 hours and when I got back she was still very happy which was good.

She had also learned a new trick:) When you say 'touchdown' she raises her arms! It is too cute!!

I was just informed by my mother that Tommi also tested out a dog cookie! haha She had found it laying on the couch and put it in her mouth when no one was looking and was just sucking on it when mom caught her!

This child is a hoot!

If you're happy and you know it...

Tommi claps now! She does it all the time and when you ask her to she will gladly show you too!

It is so much fun! So she dances and claps now...esp when music comes on! She has some rhythm down in her soul:)

I love her!!!

So here are a few really cute and silly pictures of Tommi in the past week or so...

Check out that big belly!

All smiles!

Goofy girl!

Crazy hair after a bath!

So smart!

I don't know if I mentioned it in her 8 month blog but Tommi loves to dance! It is actually rocking from side to side but when music comes on she does it and even when there is no music sometimes. But she knows what she is doing b/c we say dance and she does it. I make up songs all day long so she will dance whenever I sing to her and it's great!

She has now discovered how to go from her belly to sitting up. So the belly thing doesn't last long when she doesn't want to be on her belly. It is so fun watching her discover her own talents! She get so proud of herself!

I think she will skip crawling! She has no interest in it and LOVES to hold onto our hands and walk! Plus she can now stand up for a few seconds by herself! It isn't long but every "step" is closer to being independent!

I just wanted to post this pic b/c she is so happy in it...she was walkin with TJ!

8 Months!

Seriously can time please slow down! My babygirl is growing up so fast it is bitter sweet though. I miss that little baby that wouldn't move when I set her down but LOVE watching her discover the world and become more independent.

Tommi is able to sit up really well by herself now! She will go onto her stomach and get on her knees like she is gonna crawl but flops down on her belly as soon as she gets tired. She really doesn't seem to have an interest in crawling. But she does want to pull up and stand up on EVERYTHING! She is still trying to master this skill but she is working hard on it daily. She is silly though b/c she gets up then lets go like she is gonna walk to something else. haha She can't even take a step before falling!

She has a walker now and is getting very good at getting around. We have to keep things clear from the edge of tables b/c she will pull it down.

I have been blessed with such a happy little girl. She is grumpy when she is sleepy or doesn't feel good but otherwise she is always happy. I have even been told by other people that they never see her sad or fussy. I think it is b/c I stay on top of her needs most of the time so she hardly ever gets too hungry or too tired.

Her hair is finally growing! Still very short and thin but it is growing!

Her eating habits are equal to her size...not too big. She nurses 4 times a day and eats 2 meals (fruits for lunch and veggies for dinner) and has a snack of puffs after meals. Sometimes she gets a teething biscuit if we need her entertained while we eat. Some days she only nurses for dinner b/c she just isn't' in the mood for baby food. So she would be fine with one meal a day but I do more to get good nutrition in there.

Most of the time lately she has been sleeping with us. She will sleep 12 hours straight in our bed. Or if she starts the night in hers she will wake after a few hours and come to bed with us. We both get good sleep and it is all good!

She pics of the girl:)
