So much seems to change with small babies in 30 days. At times this can be such a blessing and at others it's just bittersweet. This month it seems to be a bittersweet one as I see you becoming more of a wiggly kid and less of a baby. (And apparently the same thing happened when you sister hit 8 months too because I went back and read her newsletter too!) You no longer need things to cushion your fall when sitting. You scoot around in circles and backwards. You plank for hilarious amounts of time. And if you get angry enough you start rocking on hands and knees...crawling is in the near future!

I'm still struggling to come up with a nickname for you. I realize it's not an absolute necessity but it's just what I do with those I love. I call you "Hay" a lot but that makes me thing of the Asian girl who was killed on the Serial podcast. We often say "Hey hey Haven" when we see you and Jeri always says "I have a cravin' for Haven." I'm sure inspiration will strike at an odd time but I do love the name I gave you so it'll be alright if I can't figure one out! I should probably call you by your full name as I confess when Liv asked me this month what your middle name was I went blank...all I could think of were the names we considered before we chose Ruth! Luckily a 6 year old's memory is better than mine and she remembered before I did then I felt horrible for a week about it...that's called mommy guilt and you will have it one day too!

Can you tell what time of year it is by these pics?
I submit that you CAN have too much pumpkin as is evident in this next photo.
Happy playing with toys and taggies!
