8 months!

Sophie is now 8 months old (as of this past Wednesday). I had a heck of a time getting her to sit still for her pictures with her monkey. A lot of the pictures look like this:

Or this:

She is constantly on the move, which makes things like changing diapers very difficult. She is crawling everywhere. Last month, she was close to being able to crawl, but now she definitely has it down. She loves to pull herself up to standing and cruise along the table, couch or anywhere she can. Several times, she will stand up and then let go of whatever it is that she's holding onto and stand for several seconds on her own. She continues to be a great eater. She loves sweet potatoes, carrots, and peas. She also really loves apples and applesauce. She'll eat pretty much anything. We went to El Nopal last night and she loved eating the rice and flour tortillas. She really is a good girl (although hasn't been sleeping too well recently). I'm wondering if she's really finally going to cut some teeth, but it seems that she always wants to be close to Mommy and Daddy. Here are her most recent pictures:

And Sophie's first Halloween costume: 

Now it's time to gear up for the holidays! Things will be much different this year with this ball of energy...and I just really can't wait!
