Bubby: The Bald and the Beautiful!

Remember that one time when I thought I had to go to the bathroom really bad? Yes, it was 8 months ago today that Clancy and Shell each grabbed a leg and the games began. They played the role as my ultimate and most trusted friends. Our little creepy scootching ninja is 8 months old today! Happy Birthday Bubby!

She is just about the cutest, smiliest little thing you would ever want to see! She is still quite long in length but now has some serious cheeks and chubby legs! She has one little tooth poking through on the bottom. She demands attention and is quite particular about who she will spend her time with and who may have the honorable pleasure of her attention.

She's stealthy and is already she is a girl with a plan! She rolls her way quickly (very literally) into the hearts of those around her and will throw her arms out when she wants you to take her. She is very much a girl who knows what she wants and will let you know when she is not happy with her fake little cry.

She does the infamous 'gorilla stomp' in her bed when she is awake. This is the act of her bringing both of her legs up and strategically dropping them both down as hard as she can thus pummeling her little mattress! It is loud and meant to summon anyone in ear shot!

She has the cheesiest grin and will accompany it with squinted closed eyes while she throws her round and peach fuzz filled head back. It makes for quite the show and yes, she busts it out at all the right moments!

She's all about her fruits and veggies...except for anything green. I can't be sure if she discriminates based on color or if she really realizes that those taste worse! Either way I can't blame the girl and am just thankful that she is off the pricey Nutramigen!

She's had her fair share of ear infections and pulls through like a champ. Mark has manned up big time by taking her to all of her doctor's appointments. I can't bear it and so he plays the role of brave comforter. Holding her while they stick her shots doesn't really work for me.

And I shall not forget that our little Adalie is a tongue clicker! She will click her tongue, wait for you to do it back and then she graciously takes her turn again. She loves being able to communicate and gets so excited! She will also do this with her fake cough, silly girl.

Besides rolling everywhere she can also scootch backward and spin on her tummy with her strong little arms. She still does her sit ups when on her back, which still makes us laugh! She insists on sitting up but never stays still for long. We've got a mover and a shaker on our hands and I can't wait to see what she does in this world!

On the B Side: We are so happy to have her in our lives! She is the perfect compliment to our little family and is loved by all! She glows when her siblings give her their undivided attention. She brings us all together and I can't imagine our lives without her. She is an amazing blessing and we love her so much! Happy Birthday Adalie Elizabeth!

I love you all sooooo much! Precious little Adi is the apple that didn't fall far from the tree, for sure! It is little Britta all over again!

What a sweet little 8 month birthday tribute! Isn't it weird to think how fast they grow up!? My little Ella walked at 8.5 months... a feat I can hardly imagine now. They change so fast!

I'm so glad I got to see Miss Adi last week. Wish I could've seen her mama... but we can't always have our cake and eat it too! :) Love you!

She's adorable! My son's a tongue clicker too, even though he's almost a year old. He's been doing it since he was her age too. Give her lots of hugs!
