I'll eat you up I love you so

Man, look at those cheeks:) I know I'm a little biased towards my kiddies and so naturally don't ever get tired of seeing their toothy grins and curly locks even if some of you may:) But our little Lydia just hit her 8th month mark and she's grown a lot, so I figured this would be a fun time to re-introduce her to you guys:
Man though she's growing too fast! She's been just the calmest and sweetest baby for the last 8 months- happy and cheerful even when she was sick, and then it was almost on the day she hit the milestone that she really seemed to wake up! She suddenly wants conversation 24/7, and has this funny little squealy growl when we're otherwise preoccupied (and not giving her our complete and undevided attention) that sounds like a baby dragon! haha Maybe she gets it from our sessions reading Where The Wild Things Are.haha
Currently loves: tasting everything she can get her hands on, long sprawling naps, her yoga routine (favorites: downward facing dog, locust pose, and bridge pose:)) the kiddie pool, mashed potatoes, and playing the piano with daddy. Known for: her epic pouty lip, backwards crawling, her big appetite, never keeping her socks or headbands on, being doted on by her big sisters, and her hugely contagious giggling.
Outfit Details: Big shoutout to the Beaufort Bonnet Company for this amazing bonnet they sent for Lydia. I can't get enough of her in it! The people there are so sweet and the shipping was fast. I was also surprised that it fit so well even with the bigger heads our kiddies have, and it keeps the sun out of her eyes amazingly well while looking just too adorable for words:) The dress was actually a gift (bought at Macy's) for Eleanor before she was born and has been worn now by all our girls, the baltic amber necklace was a gift as well and has been on her neck for months, the shoes were also a hand-me-down from her sisters, from TJ-Maxx.
You are such a joy Lydia! You have such a sweet little soul and our family is so lucky to have you in it. I can't wait to see what you'll learn and experience next, and never forget how much we all love you.
Thank you guys for visiting today, and I hope you have a great rest of your day!

  3. Ooooooh, I can barely handle her cuteness. She looks so precious! You can tell she's Johns little sister, and she's got Ellie's beautiful curly red hair (I might be biased on the red hair though ;-) ) xo
