My Buddy!

As people my age will likely remember, there was this doll for boys who was called "My Buddy". The girl version was called "Kid Sister". Remember?

Now the reason I bring this up is not because I collect them or anything, but I want to tell you about MY buddy!

The song for the My buddy doll commercial went something like this:

My buddy is Cordelia, wherever I go, she goes. Cordelia is such a mama's girl. I am always holding her or carrying her around, she tolerates others holding her from time to time, but 10 minutes is about her max with someone other than Nate or I. It can be very tiring after awhile and sometimes I just want a break! But she really is a sweet baby. I would just like to say a few things about her, and what she's doing lately.

She is very nearly crawling. She digs her little feet in and pushes herself around the floor. I guess this is what is called scooting. She's also pulling herself to standing. She discovered this neat little trick a few weeks ago and has been doing it ever since. Sometimes I'll sit her down on the floor and she'll scoot over to get a toy, then turn around, scoot back over to me, pull up on my legs and wait to be picked up. She also has a penchant for diving off my lap to get something, which can be rather scary at times!

Cordelia is nearing 8 months and we have yet to really get going on solids. She does not care for the cereal or baby food, but she will gum a cracker to death. While we're talking about her gums, she also has yet to cut a tooth, or showing ant real signs of teething for that matter. That's okay by me since she is still nursing and I am not looking forward to being bitten.

She really is a sweet and funny baby. She's vocalizing a lot more and the "g" sound seems to be her favorite. Coco also does this really cute growling sound when she's focused on something.

She and Cecily love to talk and laugh together. I am really happy to have two girls close in age. It can be overwhelming at times, but they both really grateful for my sweet little girls!

And that's just a little about "my buddy"!

My kids follow me everywhere too. Even Aubrey as best she can. Usually its like a little parade. Joshua follows right behind me then Eliza and if she can keep up Aubrey right behind that. Sometimes I forget and turn around suddenly only to knock Joshua over and watch all the rest fall over like dominoes.
