Oh, hi!  I am jumping back on here to dust the old blog off and give an update on Gemma.  Our 8 MONTH OLD Gemma!  Same thing as always, I cannot believe eight months have passed.  Wow.IMG_9708

Gemma is a happy, laid back eight month old, and she brings so much joy everyday.  Her two-toothed smile is contagious and makes my heart want to burst.IMG_9103  She loves attention from her brother, and seeing them start to interact with each other is so sweet.IMG_9613IMG_9722

She is eating baby food about twice a day, and formula in between.  She’s not big on savory items yet, but she will eat anything with bananas in it like it’s going out of style.IMG_9725

A few weeks ago Gemma started sitting up on her own.  I came into the living room to find her sitting up and she hasn’t stopped since.  It’s really cute how proud she gets just sitting around.  A few days ago she started crawling on her hands and knees rather than inch-worming like she had been doing.  She’s pretty quick and it’s looking like some new baby gates might need to be put up.

Just sittin' around.

Just sittin’ around.

Gemma’s sleeping great.  Two naps a day and about 12 hours at night.  Woohoo!  Her morning nap is usually during a walk and then she and Ashton both take long afternoon naps at the same time.  This is glorious!  She goes to bed around 7:30pm (after Jeopardy!) (priorities).

Morning nap.

Other odds & ends about Gemma:

  • Her hair is filling in, and is the same color as Ashton’s was at that age.
  • She has two teeth, but I think a bunch more are going to poke through soon.
  • I’m guessing she’s over 20 pounds.
  • She’s wearing 12 month clothes and size 4 diapers.
  • She loves the Mickey and Super Why shows like Ashton.
  • She still sleeps in Zipadee Zip sacks from Shark Tank.

We love you Gemma Paisley!
