We've got a picnic tomorrow, which isn't the first this month but we've been lucky(ish) with the weather. I thought I would come along and update with my regular Sophie picture post as well! I like looking back at these posts now and wondering how she has got so big without me really noticing! She's 8 months this coming Monday. She's crawling EVERYWHERE now, she can even pull herself to standing and loves to do it, she wants to touch and bite EVERYTHING and loves finger food. She can get herself into a sitting up position without any effort anymore. She has three teeth on the bottom front of her mouth at the moment and one just about to break through on the top. She giggles if you know where to tickle her, and loves it even more if you do it with your nose. If you say "kiss" and pucker your lips when you've got her attention (not the easiest of tasks) she'll open her mouth slightly and put it on yours.
But best of all she says (screams) "mama" when hungry and I'm not being quick enough with warming her food. I admit I might have had a few tears when she did that one the first time.
This is how messy she gets everyday.
