If there are two things Gavin loves its pirates and donuts. His loves collided today for Krispy Kreme's annual talk like a pirate day. Talk like a pirate for 1 free donut, or dress like a pirate for a free dozen donuts. We surprised Gavin with the event when we picked him up from school, and he was more than happy to dress up when we got to the store. Amelia made "the face" when she tried a tiny piece of donut.

8 months

Yesterday Amelia turned 8 months old. Her 6th tooth broke through for the occasion, she now has 3 on top and 3 on bottom. She still is not big on solids, will eat a few bites here and there. She enjoys exploring everything and everywhere, pulling books off the shelf and looking at them, playing with toys, being held upside down, pounding on windows, and playing with Gavin as long as he doesn't get too rough. She often cries if I leave the room. She can cruise holding on to things and is starting to walk holding onto push toys. Her hair color is hard to describe but beautiful. It looks like a mixture of light brown, blonde, and a little copper. She is physically strong with an even tempered, sweet, and content personality. She is pretty easy going and usually does quite well running errands with me or sitting in a highchair when we eat out.
