Can you believe that Kirsten is now 8 months old. We weighed her last night just before she went to bed and she is 18 lbs 6.5 oz (8.35 kilos). Although she’s been teething on and off for a couple of months you can see the whites through her gums when she smiles, but still nothing actually there. Kirsten has also decided she’s not going to crawl. We go to storytime at the library on Wednesday mornings and with numerous babies around her crawling and walking she is more than happy to sit and watch. Admittedly at home she will use her lungs if she can’t get what she wants but otherwise she moves around by rolling and sliding backwards on the wood furniture. I even found her in the office the other day. Last week we bought her a walker so she is starting to get to grips with that.
I have to admit that we’re enjoying some quiet time at home. Last Saturday evening we participated in the Black Mountain Elementary School Lumineria Run. John did the timed 4 mile run and I did the 2 mile walk. Please be aware that this course goes up and down steep hills. Kirsten and I managed the 2 miles in 30 minutes so we were really pleased with our effort.
Mohawk and Charlotte are getting to grips with Kirsten. Mohawk is intrigued by Kirsten and goes to check her out regularly – as yet he’s not overly concerned by the pulling of hair. Charlotte on the other hand tends to steer clear – personally I don’t blame her.
No photos this time. I’m trying to work out some technical issues so hopefully they will all come soon.
