Comments for Eight Months Old

Harriet wavingEight Months Old: 05/05/07

Today Harriet turns eight months old. She can now sit unsupported and can feed herself but prefers to have me feed her.

Here is what I've learned about her so far:

  • Her favorite color is purple.
  • Her favorite vegetables are carrots.
  • Her favorite animals are: cats, elephants and horses.
  • She likes her baths hotter than her brother does.
  • She likes to sleep with her face under her blankets.
  • Her favorite book is My Yard.
  • She is looking forward to attending Sean's preschool.
  • Her favorite nursery rhymes are The Itsy Bitsy Spider and Three Men in a Tub.
  • She likes ice cream.
  • She does great impressions of elephants and cats; her brother taught her.
  • She has an ear for music; we've noticed her humming music we've played. She's especially fond of humming video game music.
  • She thinks that Elmo is funny.
  • She is very good with her hands. I have to watch her to make sure she doesn't take apart things she shouldn't be touching.

Harriet is beautiful. All her photos are smashing, but this one especially - that little cheeky grin :o) It never ceases to amaze me how quickly they grow!"

Thank you! They do grow quickly. Harriet is developing a lovely personality. She's witty, funny and cheeky just like her brother, Sean."
