Natalie is 8 Months Old!

Natalie, you are 8 months old! I can't believe we're here, only a few short months until you turn 1. I'm kind of having a hard time with that all of a sudden, since you are most likely our last baby yet you're growing so fast! I try to get in as many snuggles as I can and I never want to put you down. I will treasure this picture of you sleeping in my arms forever:

You are in 6-9, 9 or 9-12 month clothes. You even fit in an 18 month one time. You moved up to a size 4 diaper and weigh at least 21 lbs. (I haven't weighed you in awhile). I finally got you down to nurse every 4 hours (so 4 times a day) and eat baby food in between. You've started doing better with your sippy cup and actually started trying to eat puffs. You struggle a little bit but get one down eventually :) Still no teeth!
First time eating yogurt this month too :)

You are taking longer naps finally and you're getting into more of a routine. You still sleep great, from about 8pm to sometime between 7-8:30am. You are getting more hair and it is very red still. I've decided for sure that your hair is going to be a tad darker than your sister's, as well as your eyelashes-yours are dark blonde/light brown and hers are light blonde. Y'all are still very close, though.

You are still not crawling but roll from your back to your tummy. However, you still struggle getting from your tummy to your back which makes you very angry. You are content to just sit on the floor as long as we give you plenty of toys or if someone is with you. 
Your siblings are very happy to give you stuffed animals to play with. Even if they're bigger than you.

You have moved to the big bathtub in your room because you splashed so much that you soaked the kitchen too many times. 

You are constantly happy and are the best sport about being in your car seat when taking and dropping off your brothers at preschool. For some reason you're always asleep hanging on like this.
You're the sweetest and so funny and we love you so much!
