mama's big girl
dylan has changed so much in just the past week. she can cover a ton of ground crawling, although it's really more of a commando-style scoot. adorable! she plays happily on the floor with her toys, and i try my best to keep her out of the magazine baskets under the coffee table that entice her most of all. dylan sits up pretty decently and has begun babbling all sorts of baby talk in addition to the funny sound effects she already enjoys making. dylan most definitely says "mama," usually when she is sleepy, hungry, or otherwise sad. it is such a plaintive plea, and it would break my heart if it weren't also the most beautiful thing i've ever heard in my life! my eight-month-old baby girl calls for me by name. simply amazing.
