8 months old

What happened to my little baby?? She's a toddler! Adelyn is ALL over the place! She is crawling- been doing the army crawl for over a month now. I don't know if she'll ever get on all fours! She can go from sitting to crawling and from crawling to sitting. She is also pulling up on everything! All she wants to do is stand up! This has kind of created some issues for nap time! She wakes up and sees the rail. It's too tempting. She immediately stands up and then won't go back down. Her naps are getting shorter because it's too much fun to stand and play instead! Adelyn is such a good eater! She'll eat anything I put in front of her. She really likes avocado, bananas, and yogurt. It's fun to experiment with new foods! She's getting her two top teeth in. One is halfway out and the other one is well on its way. Adelyn claps her hands now. Finally, all the patty cake has paid off! I am keeping Charlie (she's 6 months old) two days a week. Adelyn and Charlie are beginning to somewhat play together (i.e grab each other's toys or pat each other). It's so cute! I also got another tutoring student. Now I'm up to 4 kids per week! Yay for extra income! I am lucky to have Brenda keep her twice a week for me. I miss teaching, and this gives me a little taste of it. The kids are really sweet.
We went with Seth's family to Montana January 15-23. Emily and Thomas had a stomach bug the day before we left. By the end of the trip, Brenda, Melissa, and Bert also got it. Additionally, Martha (Seth's aunt) had a severe case of strep throat. Seth, Adelyn, and I slept in the basement and took day trips away. Luckily, we never got it! It was a great trip- Adelyn's first trip to Montana in the snow. Bert, Melissa, Seth and I went snowmobiling. It was a fun little adventure away from the kiddos! Here is the link to view the pictures:
Adelyn and I went to Tega Cay to see my family while Seth was in Daytona. We got a lot of snow, so we pretty much just stayed at the house. We did venture up to Hickory to see my grandmother. She just celebrated her 95th birthday!! Seth had his first Continental Tire race with Bimmerworld. He and his teammate came in 2nd!! Woo-hoo! Additionally, Seth got the opportunity to race in the 24 Hours at Daytona! He raced with 3 other guys and they finished 15th. I really wish I could have been at those races, but I don't think Adelyn would have enjoyed it so much. Next time, when it's shorter racing, we'll be there to cheer him on in person! Here's Seth's blog:
Adelyn will be 9 months tomorrow (Feb. 11) and I turned 32 today. I seriously don't know where the time is going. I'm loving every fast minute though!

Here's a link to a video of Adelyn splashing in the tub:
