Ady at 8 months

Today I tried to take some pictures of Ady at 8 months old. She is such a fun sweet little peach! At times I wonder if we can love a baby too much. Because she is spoiled! She is eating some solid foods and blabbing all of the time. She is not crawling yet, but she is rolling all over the place. I can say she is most definitely mobile. Today while I was trying to take pictures that was very evident! She just kept rolling over to Hailey to play with her. I could not keep her attention on me or the camera. I found myself getting frustrated and then quickly realized that this moment with Hailey depicted her perfectly at 8 months. She is cute and smiley, always rolling around and always wanting to play with Hailey. Hailey is so very kind to her and returns the love each time Ady offers it. I think that Hailey enjoys these "sister moments" as much as Ady.

Grumpy Baking

I absolutely love baking with my kids. I remember doing it with my Grandma when I was little. One of many bad winter days we decided to bake some cookies for FHE. I waited until Adyalyn was napping before we started because baking is not possible with a baby! But that turned happy excited Hailey into grumpy unhappy Hailey. She wanted Ady to help us bake cookies. I tries to explain to her that it would be very difficult to do, but she refused to help at all. (As you can see int he pictures) Ethan offered to let her do all of the pouring and stiring, but she insisted that she was not going to do it without Ady there to help. Ethan and I proceeded to bake some yummy chocolate chip cookies while Hailey remained grumpy. But the minute that Ady woke up Hailey came out of her funk and was happy again! I took a snap shot of the kids right after she woke up and it turned out to be one of my favorites of them together. I love that they make each other feel so happy!
