8 Months Old

  • August 22, 2009 12:59 pm

Another month has come and gone and Kira is already 8 months old.  She’s got two little teeth now, can stand up very well (although she can’t pull herself up yet), and is on the cusp of scooting around/crawling.  Her hair is really filling out and getting long and we’re starting to have to clip it back to keep it out of her eyes because we can’t bring ourselves to cut it yet.  She’s still the most awesome baby ever and goes to bed at night giggling away. 

Summer is nearing an end already and soon it will be time to break out the fall wardrobe.  That’s a good thing in this household, as Kira has almost outgrown every summer outfit she’s got and I don’t want to pay for anything new this late in the year.  Life is pretty routine for us, working during the week and resting on the weekends.  We’re trying to sell our house in New Zealand so we can pay off our house here, then hopefully be in a new place next spring. 

On an awesome news note:  In just over a month, Joseph’s sister from New Zealand will be here for a nice visit.  It’s been over 2 years since we’ve seen her (when we left New Zealand) and Kira can’t wait to meet her Auntie Simone.  Hopefully she’ll have gotten over her stranger anxiety by then, because right now she cries at most strangers who try to hold her (Kira, not Simone) 🙂
