Molly 8 Months!

Lots of firsts for our girl this month!

Molly is wearing size 12 month clothes and size 4 diapers. She is not quite as chubby now that she is crawling. :)

She is nursing 5-6 times a day and eating solids 2 times a day. New foods: broccoli, pumpkin, pears, and gerber puffs. She is a great eater, as always. And I am making my own baby food now, out of necessity. 

She is taking 2-3 naps a day that are 30-60 minutes long (rarely longer, if I'm lucky). She sleeps 12 hours at night but I usually have to attend to her 2 or 3 times. We are still adjusting to a new country, house, etc. We are not really on a new schedule yet. 

She is CRAWLING! Molly started crawling about a week after we arrived in Uganda. She is all over the place.

She can now transition from laying down to sitting up on her own. 

She traveled internationally for the first time! Molly did so well, we were extremely proud. She slept a good deal and cried very little. She has now been on 3 continents. :)

She loves to walk in her walker that I bought here in Mbale. She is surprisingly fast! She likes to follow me and our houseworker Betty around in it.

She has a tooth! Molly's first tooth broke through the day she turned 8 months. *Graham's first tooth came in at 8 months as well.

She has hiked to Sipi Falls in her ergo carrier. She slept quite a bit of the way.

She is nuts about her big brother! He is not crazy about the fact that she can crawl anywhere now, including towards him or his toys. But he can always get her smile and giggle.

We are crazy about our easy-going girl! She wants to be wherever the people are, wherever the action is. I think that's why she naps so poorly, doesn't want to miss a thing! Unlike her big brother, she seems to be fine with her schedule changing at the drop of a hat. She loves to be held and cuddled and fussed over, but she's fine playing on the floor by herself. Our new teammates have all fallen for her. We are thankful for every moment!
