8 Month Update

I'm a little bit late in posting this update. Life has been busy lately, so I apologize!

Hannah turned 8 months old on July 26. A lot has changed since our 7 month update.

In just four short weeks, Hannah went from just learning how to sit up by herself to full out crawling. She's extremely mobile now and crawls all over the house with ease. Yesterday, she also learned how to pull up to a standing position. She's only done that a couple of times, but I'm sure she'll be pulling things off of shelves in no time.

Hannah is more like a little girl than a baby now. My baby is growing up QUICKLY! Here are some photos from her 8 month birthday.







Hannah went on her first plane ride last weekend. She went with my parents and me to Pittsburgh while I attended the wedding of a friend. She was a breeze to fly with and didn't cry once on either flight. Everyone was commenting on what a happy, content baby she was. I was very proud! She did pretty well in the hotel, too. I'm really relieved that all went well. We have two big trips planned for the end of the year, and I'm not at all nervous to take her with us now. 

 Here she is playing on the floor of the airport while waiting for our plane to Pittsburgh. 
 Grandma Becky was a big help to me while we were gone. I'm very glad Hannah loves her and has no problem being with her for long periods of time. 

She was so pooped from her adventures that she slept the whole plane ride home. What a trooper! We were lucky that the airline had spare seats on both flights. They let us put her in the car seat next to me which made things very easy.

We've also spent a lot of time at the pool lately. When the temperatures are around 100 degrees,  it's the only outdoor activity I can do with her outside. She loves to splash and kick in the water. She's definitely not afraid of it!

She's ready to go back in the water now! 

This age has been so much fun. I can't wait to see what the next month will bring!
