Happy miss Sommertime is 8 months old! She is still a delight. Her accomplishments of the past month have been another tooth, this one on top; slowly creeping around the furniture; dancing; growling (I need to get this on video). Cannon has discovered that he too can carry her around the house and so he brings her to me at various times throughout the day because he can, not because she is crying. Seeing him do this often reminds me of a child carrying a kitten or puppy. Sommer is generally indifferent about this, she is just happy to be part of the action.
Yesterday and today these were the comments that she got from strangers:
"Those eyes are going to pop out of your head." and
"Could those eyes get any bigger?"
I'm taking these as compliments cast in a strange way. Her eyes are bright and blue and happy and watching her makes me want to open my eyes wider and smile back.
