Wow...I am behind! This sweet baby is almost eight months old....WHAT?!?!?! How in the world did that happen!
This summer has been a whirlwind! We have gone to the beach, gone to the lake, visited Granddaddy and G, taken swimming lessons, and enjoyed loads of great family time!
Chandler is definitely the light of our lives and keep us laughing and on our toes! Her smile lights up a room. She is a happy, bubbly, babbling baby and we are so very blessed. At her six month checkup, which was right around seven months, Chandler weighed 16 pounds and was 26 1/2 inches long. She is a very healthy baby.
These past two months have brought some big changes. Chandler is now eating purees, and aside from a short-lived affinity for yogurt only, loves everything she has tried thus far. She definitely still loves yogurt, but her other favorites are bananas, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, and pears.
Chandler took ISR Self-Rescue swimming lessons this summer and we have been thrilled with the "results". Chandler can float on her back and can enter the pool from just about any angle and still roll over underwater and float on her back! She is a little fish and we're excited that next year we get to start working on swimming!
This little one loves to shop, grocery store, children's boutique, Lowe's...you name it, she loves it! She is a friendly smiley shopper and charms just about everyone we meet. She has recently begun to babble and has the sweetest voice I think I have ever heard! I spend my day listening to her "blah blah blah" or "da da da" or "ga ga ga" and it is music to my ears!
Sweet Chandler has a serious case of bedhead...all the time! She has very full head of hair that likes to stand straight up! We love her disheveled, crazy hair and I think it matches her silly sweet personality just perfectly!
Chandler is a great sleeper and now sleeps at night from about 6:45pm - 6:45 am. She takes two naps during the day that each average out around 1 1/2 hours for a total of about 3 hours of naps each day.
We are so thankful everyday for Chandler. What a blessing!
Chandler, you are so special to your daddy and me. We love the way you laugh and they way your grin lights up your whole face. We are so proud of the way you are growing up and we pray every day to be better parents to you and to set only the best examples for you. We love you so very much and we are excited to have front row seats to watch you grow up!
