8 months!

Mia turned 8 months old last Thursday! Since it was the Gophers opener (and time for a 'real' photo shoot was nonexistent), she was dressed to watch the game. In the past month she's started crawling(!) and has broken through two more teeth (her top two lateral incisors). She's 'talking' more, likes to holler a lot, and is becoming more demanding all of the time (can you say red-headed temper?). She is eating more everyday and by this point she's made it through just about all of the typical fruits and veggies (she's still not too sure about bananas, but seems to mostly like everything else). It continually amazes us how quickly she is growing up - it seems like any day now she's going to get up, walk over to us, and start telling us about her day!

Hello red hair!

And here's proof of her crawling! This was taken in the tiny cabin we stayed at outside of Denali National Park in Alaska. Two things to note: 1) yes, she is crawling after daddy's bottle of beer! and 2) the area she is crawling in was the entire walkway between all of our beds.

I love those cute little cheerleader outfits--does she have a Vikings one too?

Of course! We lucked out and found both of them at consignment or rummage sales so we could easily splurge on them!

Awww, she is just like her momma, big fan of the beer!
