Day 238-246: Elle is 8 months!

The sweetest chunker is 8 months old! …though she’s starting to lose her chunk 😰

I’m having serious mixed feelings as she keeps inching toward the 1 year mark. I LOVE seeing her personality come out and watching her grow but where did my tiny little baby go?!


Leighton loves to clap, wave at everyone, smile and TALK. She’s found her voice and she’s definitely going to give K a run for her money.

She’s adding a knee bend to her army crawl but still hasn’t quite put the pieces together – and I’m in NO rush for her to figure it out!

She’s enjoying trying new foods though she’s perfected her stank face when I give her peas. 😂 I can’t blame her. 🤢 Her favorite activities include kicking her legs, grunting, staring at herself, and taking the nursing cover off when I feed her in public. 🤦🏼‍♀️

And of course we can’t leave out big sis.

Kensie is…Kensie. 😂 Our ever so dramatic, hilarious source of constant entertainment.

Just getting ready for daycare…🤷🏼‍♀️
Her “photo face” 🙄

Kensie has had a fun week with friends, her B, being her usual diva self, and occasionally humoring me with a smile.

Her new favorite tutu. At least this week.

I’d like to take this time to give a huge shout out to my man, Santa Claus and whoever recently taught K about the tooth fairy.

K asks for every toy she sees and I keep telling her no and her newest response is “okay, then can I ask Santa?” I say “of course” and she goes “THANK YOU MOMMY!”, usually accompanied with a hug – Discussion over.

The only way this will backfire is if she remembers all 365 days of her requests in December. 😂

(Side note: she’s gonna rock a runway one of these days…😳😂)

Kens has also been telling everyone her teeth are growing and about to fall out. 🤔

She has 2 friends at daycare that lost teeth so it’s her new fascination. She told me and Chris she’s going to put her tooth under her pillow (as she yanks on her front 2 teeth 🤦🏼‍♀️) and the tooth fairy is going to come bring her a coin. A COIN?! YASSS. Seriously. Whoever told her that. I appreciate you. Quarters for daysssss. 👏🏼🙌🏼

These girls sure keep us on our toes but they also keep my heart so full. 🥰
