Morgan Kate is 8 months old!

Morgan Kate...

weighs twelve pounds and three ounces. (As of Tuesday.)

is 24.5 inches long.

wears size 2 diapers.

still wears 0-3 month clothes and may continue to until she is 15. I don't really know. 

can roll from tummy to back and back to tummy. She rolls constantly. 

will NOT take a pacifier, but loves to chew on her bib.

is drinking 7 ounces of formula every five hours or so.

loves squealing really loud, especially when we are in the doctor's office.

laughs out loud when you tickle her tummy.

loves to watch our lab, Cash, do anything.

sleeps like a baby at night. Literally.

takes really short cat naps throughout the day, usually in my arms or in her swing.

loves to watch things.

is learning to sit up. It's tough work for a little girl.

I am sure that I am missing things. This little girl does so many new things each and every day. She continues to amaze Travis and I. We are so very blessed to be her parents and to have her in our lives. Words just cannot express how much I love my baby girl!

I am off to bed. I should have been in bed hours ago. Tomorrow is a big day for all of us. The walk begins at 9:00 and we are really excited. I already have MK's diaper bag packed and her outfit ready. Be sure to check back tomorrow for pictures!

Wow. It sounds like MK is doing well. My youngest daughter is 13 months and was 16 lbs 27 1/2 inches long at her 12 mo apt. She was born at 38 weeks so I think that MK is doing great. She is so pretty.

Have fun on your walk tomorrow. I will be thinking about you.
