I mentioned in my last 7/8 month update that I wasn’t going to do an update for 8 months, but Talisa added SO many skills in the last half of her 8th month, that I have to update! I should have updated about a week and a half ago, but the fact that I still don’t have a computer has really slowed down how much I am doing online. I can use Naren’s computer, as I am now, but I don’t have all that much time and I don’t have all my files, so it’s kind of a pain for me. But today I loaded a few photos from the camera, so I’ll share those and update on the new skills she added in the last 3 weeks!
Talisa went from pulling herself around on her belly to:
Sitting by herself:
Pulling up to stand by herself:
Crawling on all fours (very quickly!)
Cruising along the couch and other objects
Pulling herself to a stand and then purposely letting go and trying to balance by herself (she is successful for a second or two)
I have a ton of computer work to try and catch up on, so I’ll just end this here with some photos. Oh wait, one more important thing, Talisa started getting her FIRST TOOTH two days ago! She is sleeping horribly, but does not seem to be in too much pain. It is her bottom left.
Below is a photo of her big cheesy grin. We LOVE this grin, it cracks us up every time. She used to do it every day, but then she suddenly stopped one day. Now she does it once every couple days or so. This isn’t the biggest it gets. She really grins wide and throws her head back. It’s a hoot!
In this photo below Svara was trying to save her hair from being pulled too hard. Talisa’s favorite activity is hair pulling! Actually she’s not as adamant about it as Svara was when she was a baby, but she still enjoys it. Part of the reason why I cut my own hair! But Svara never whines too much about it. Actually she is pretty calm about it which is surprising when I consider how much she complains every day when I brush her hair.
