gracie bell: 8 months

i can't believe my teeny tiny newborn is EIGHT months old!

you are the sweetest bundle of joy and a total mama's girl!

you are all over the place now and so busy, so much busier than your brother ever was!

i love comparing/contrasting the two of yall because yall are so similar, yet so different.

you are looking more and more like him everyday. most people think you always have, but i don't see it that often.

you recently have turned into quite the screech owl. it is piercing and for some reason you love to "screech" mostly out in public! oh joy!

you refuse to eat any baby food, although i still try quite often. i couldn't pry your lips open to save my life, if i wanted to.

on the other hand, you LOVE any other food, other than baby food. you love yogurt melts and puffs. and i have let you eat a few things here and there that we eat, that is bland and i can turn into mush.... you have loved everything you've tried.

you still have just your 6 teeth but you are working on quite a few more. your first six all came in at 5 months and within 2 weeks of eachother, so you must be getting ready to have a new "batch!"

on the subject of teeth, you are still only breast fed, but that might be changing soon because you bite like a pirranha! i want to do everything the same as i did with your brother, so im trying my hardest to tough it out til you are the least 10 1/2 months old. you also refuse to take a bottle, so that will be another challenge in itself.

you are a typical girl with mood swings.... mostly when it comes to your brother. most of the time you are beyond tolerant of him and how rough he is with you, and you think he is THE funniest person on the planet, but some days, all he has to do is look at you and you start screaming. haha! yall both just idolize eachother and i could sit and watch yall forever!

your favorite time of day, hands down, is bath time. you could not be cuter if you tried when you take a bath. you can make an insanely huge mess for such a petite young lady! you splash just like shamu and think it's the funniest thing ever!

happy eight months my angel! im so glad God picked me you be your and grayson's mommy!
i attempted to feed gracie yet again today. she hated it (shocker) so i just let her play!
this stuff is gross mom!

LOVE this precious baby girl!

for your viewing pleasure:
(and bc we can't have a post without joe cool!)

could not love them more if i tried!
happy girl

p.s. im thinking i might make three of these for the babes playroom. i have this one blank wall that needs something, and i thought they could be cute there, done in their playroom colors, obviously! OR i might make the letter canvases, since they have the same initials! not sure. i love the idea of the stripes on the canvases either way!
p.p.s. grayson peed in the big boy potty for the first time last night!!!!! WOOHOO!!! but wasn't interested at all today. potty training....what a joy!


  1. She looks soo much like you! Too cute!

  2. Oh my goodness I love this little girl! That picture of Gray kissing her is precious. And I LOOOOVE the peace sign project.. we may have to hit up Hobby Lobby and do this together, I also want to make Owen a shirt for our Valentine's Day get-together. Love you so much!
