Rael is non-stop and too much cuteness to handle. She is now on the go and is crawling as they say, "monkey style." She is on all fours - on her tippy-toes and finger tips, while her bottom is up in the air. Folks, if you haven't seen it yet, you must stop by our house for a visit and you will have a smile on your face. She is so much fun and enjoys being involved in everything. Laylie and her are having a lot of fun playing together either on the floor with toys, in her room, or even outside in their playhouse. They are the best of friends and I am praying it will always be that way - sisters are a true gift. Rael no longer has the sweet baby cry. Now her cry can pierce your ears, and Laylie normally covers her ears until Rael is happy and jolly again. Maybe we will see her on American Idol when she turns 16. She eats anything and everything and still enjoys picking up little foods with her tiny fingers. She is a mama's girl and is becoming very attached, which i don't mind, unless I'm on a date night out with my love. I love her little body from her head to her toes and her little frame is so easy to cuddle. She is still is in the 9th percentile for weight, but she is growing healthy and strong. 8 months is such a fun stage and we are loving every moment of it. She is a true angel from above!
