Here is the a video of Samara's 1st time crawling forward (taken yesterday morning). I can't believe my baby is crawling (actually yes, I can believe it... I thought she was going to crawl a while ago already). Here she is yesterday morning as well, wearing her amber teething necklace. I am loving it so far and it seems to have minimized her discomfort while teething. I didn't have to give her any advil while her first eye tooth made its appearance this week. We are currently trying to figure out a safe way for her to wear it while sleeping. I tried looping it around her ankle and then putting a sleeper on but our baby houdini somehow managed to get it off her ankle, through her sleeper and into her hot little baby hands.

S.A.M (Samara Anne Marie) is 8 months old. I have not been taking any pictures lately so there are only a few to show sort of what she's been up to... took so many while we were away and then almost none since we have been home. Anyway she's a pro at sitting now and moves to and from a crawling position when sitting. She wiggles around the house and gets up on her hands and knee's but she's not officially crawling yet. She was a bit slow to start solid foods... gaged the most out of my kids so far until I discovered that she just doesn't like baby food. Now she's eating rice, potato, carrot chunks, apple, banana, naan bread, etc! She continues to be my best sleeper though she is cutting her 4th tooth at the moment and so is a bit grumpy about that. We could have easily named her JOY... she is such a happy baby... we all love her to bits. In celebration of her 8 month birthday she decide to start "blowing" today... not zerberts... just blowing air as if she were blowing out a candle... I guess she is getting ready for her 1st birthday which is coming in just 4 months time!
