Alaina at 8 months

We are blessed that Laura and Aaron live close to us, and we're so thankful that we get to have Alaina stay with us on a regular basis. She stayed with us this weekend and as usual, we really enjoyed our time with her.


She is now 8 months old, growing fast and changing all the time!




She is now crawling, standing up and figuring how to get into all sorts of mischief! One thing that hasn't changed is her ability to wrap Bob around her little finger!




All that playing tires a person out, and Aunt Heather is always ready to snuggle.




Here she is, getting in a little play time before church on Sunday morning.




Alaina looked so cute in her little dress, that I took her into the backyard for some pictures after church. However, she won't sit still so the photo op ended quickly. :)




She is such a joy!

Y'know Mari, the more she grows, the more she looks like you. I think she has your smile most definitely...what a doll!!!

[love the sandals that match her darling dress]

What a precious little girl--so cute and adorable. I love that pic of her with her aunt. I have one of Abby with her uncle (my son) and it just melts my heart every time I look at it.
That first one is really appealing--you've got her not really posing and I like that half-smile.
But the last one just shows off everything: her joy, animation, terrific spirit, and beauty! For her being at a very active stage, you surely snapped several terrific photos, Mari! Great job!:>)

My goodness I can't believe she's 8 months old already...time just flies doesn't it?

So glad you get to stay close to her, she's grow up with wonderful memories of time with her grandparents :)

She does love spending time at Grandma and Grandpa's house! I think it might be because she gets spoiled.... :)

Such a sweet picture with Heather.
You got some great shots- love her!

I'm thinking your kids must have all looked a lot alike as babies? Because Alaina reminds me so much of your son -- those same cute chubby cheeks (hope that doesn't offend Andy. haha) and sweet smile.

That last picture makes me just want to scoop her up and give her a big smooch!
Did Heater get her hair cut? She's such a cutie!!

She's so big, I can't believe it. I remember waiting and waiting for the news of her arrival! I love the picture of her and Heather.
