8 Months of Scarlett

Watching your child grow and learn new things every day is probably the greatest gift ever!! I am constantly in awe of how much she has developed physically, mentally and emotionally in just a few short months! I am also at the same time so in awe of the fact that I already have an 8 month old baby! Where has the time gone?!

This past month, Scarlett has really tried to hone in on her skills and learn a few new things along the way!! I definitely think she has been laying a foundation for a pretty eventful 8th month! haha

Month 8 is going to be even more eventful AND special because this is the age she will be when we move into our first family home!!! I still can’t even believe it! We officially bought our first home last week and have been working on in day in day out to get it ready for our family! It will be so special to look back and remember that she 8 months old when we took on this new adventure!
