So everyone knows how sad i've been about the loss of my old camera, but i think i chose the best day ever to buy one. This Saturday, after a pricey but well worth it stop to Best Buy, Toni, my Mom, Lani, and I went to Grapefest in Grapevine. We had so much fun and i think Lani was super excited too.

Ok maybe it was just mommy looking excited in the pictures, but trust me she was very excited on the inside.

So after a few hours of walking around, and dinner at a cute Italian restaurant, we decided to head home, until we passed by the carousel.

The little man there was nice enough to let Lani ride and she loved it!! (once again its hard to tell on the pics, but she was totally laughing and slapping the pole).

My mom had the great idea to get a quick video on her cell phone. I cant wait until this weekend to take her to the state fair. She's going to love it!!

So today was one of Lani's bestie's, Beckett, 1st birthday party.  Both the babies and the mommys had a blast.  They loved playing together and all the attention from everyone.  Plus its always nice to have some other hands around for us mommys. Now since my camera is still broken, i dont have any party pics.  But as soon as whit or monica send me some, i'll post a few!!!

Cant wait til our next playdate... Halloween here we come!

~ She has had 2 ear infections
~ She is full on crawling, but seems to prefer the army crawl when in a hurry
~ She love love loves to eat!!!
~ She is more talkative
~ She pulls up on thing and turns around and lets go
~ She recognizes familiar faces 
~ Loves to eat mum mums (still), avocado, rice and beans, mangos, banana, and yogart
~ She officially has allergies and takes Zyrtec once a day (that's the Cummings in her)
~ She cries and screams when mommy comes to get her from daycare, or if anyone is watching her
~ She has had her first full on tantrum
~She has a boyfriend at daycare that she kisses through the crib and cries when he gets picked up early. 
~She is friendly to some people, but will give a dirty look in a minute 
~ She loves to jump and bounces when she hears music
~ She sings along to music
~ Her mumbling is starting to sound a lot more like words
~ When standing alone she tries to lift her leg and take a step

So as you can see there have been a lot of changes ... Seems like 8 months is going to be kid of a big deal!

Mommy's Next Top Model

As our little VS enter month 8, we were so excited when one of our besties (and one of her 2 Godfathers) took pics of Lani for us. I was super nervous since she had been cranky, but she did great.  Amir did an awesome job capturing her little spirit.  if you are in need of pics (family, weddings, modeling, etc) check him and our friend jay out at their Still Life Media Page. Here are a few of my faves....
