she called me ’mama’ tonight...

my baby girl has melted my heart yet again.

Today was spent on the beach celebrating Charles' birthday. Switchfoot was there; that was weird. So anyway, tonight after a long (and fun!) day Miss Miah was wiped: she completely conked out on the way home, as predicted. We let her sleep in her car seat for a few minutes while we got the house settled. The plan was to take a short family nap (Aaron's been up since 3:30am) because we were all pretty out of it. So just before we're on our way to getting her out of her seat to trasport her into our bed, she wakes up, cranky, I might add. She's not fully awake; just awake enough to know she needs me to feed her so she can pass out again. (She had been so excited to be at the beach she didn't nap at all and couldn't focus on eating... so she was both exhausted and starving!)

So Aaron pulls her out of the car seat and starts to walk into the bedroom, saying, "I'm going to let her rest with me and you can come feed her in a minute, k?" but I'm certain that's not gonna happen because of the level of tired/hungry she's at. So I start to tell him to wait, because she needs what only a mother can provide (haha), while she's getting more vociferous with her protest of being carried away. She can see that she's not getting closer to the food source, and that's irritating! *L*

So finally she reaches around Aaron and out to me, and looking right at me cries, "Mmaaaa, mmmaaaaaa!"

Oh, my goodness. I can't tell yet with words how it feels. Poor baby was still hungry and tired, but all I could do was hold her for a minute, lovin' on my girl. So that's pretty much the news for today. She's been saying "dada" for almost three weeks now, but I'm not sure if it's ever been calling to him, or not. I'll have to ask Aaron and see what he thinks when he wakes up. ;)

Enjoy your tomorrow, everyone!

8 months...

Miah's getting so big. She continues to be the sweetest, strongest little girl I've ever met.

She recently mastered the "pre-crawl," which is a sort of tummy scoot resembling "the worm" (from your 80's dance moves repertoire).

She is always happy, even when she's teething and can't sleep. If she wakes up in the middle of the night, she does it with a grin on her face.

As you might gather from the photos, she really loves balls right now. I love her button nose. She learned how to crinkle it recently, as you can somewhat see here. She is such a doll!

I LOVE this face!! Can you believe my girl is nearing 8 months old? If genuinely feels like last month we brought her home. Time flies when you're having a BLAST! I love being with her; she has an adventurous spirit and is incredibly discerning. Everyone we talk to agrees; she is the best baby EVER!
love, the Gentry's

At the Wild Animal Park

I can't get over the expression on her face. She looks like she's about to declare some quippy or sarcastic comment! I love it! She loves being outdoors, in fresh air, more than anyhting. This was a beautiful day; our date day, but it started raining on us. Aaron prayed, and it stopped! A full 2 hours later, we got into the car, and within 20 seconds (with no warning) it started pouring! Jesus loves us!

This one's from Christmas... at Gramma Cindy's house in Texas. I was really sick, and
she just got a little runny nose AFTER we got home, Praise God! I felt like I almost died
from flying congested, I can't imagine if she had gotten it.
