Layla – 8 Months Old

Little Layla turned eight months old this month. She is growing and changing so fast! She now has six teeth (3 on top, 3 on bottom), crawls in circles (no forward motion yet), rocks on her hands and knees, and likes to stand and hold onto the couch. She loves being the center of attention and enjoys shouting at her brothers and getting them to respond. They recently taught her to roar at them, so we often now haveĀ roaring matches in the family room. She says ma ma, da, ba (bath), hi/hey, and babbles a lot. Layla also loves to wave, clap and dance.

Daddy walked into the room. Here is her reaction:

“Mmmmm, this sticker is nice to chew on.”

Here are a few shots we took while we were in Salt Lake City with out little lady.

January 2017

January is a long, dark month. It’s always nice to get the Christmas things put away, but then I start itching for spring and it’s still months off. We had lots to keep us busy though, so the time whizzed by and now as I write this it is already February 7th andĀ I am behind on blogging again! Here are my favorite pics from January in chronological order.

Kieron has been reading to Silas at night lately. When it doesn’t end up in wrestling it is super sweet!
