Bad Blogger

So I am such a bad blogger! I seriously don't have the time or the mental clarity right now to put my thoughts down on 'paper'. Josina is almost 8 1/2 months old already! For the past 2 1/2 months she has not been sleeping AT ALL, thanks to teething and easing onto solid foods. I cannot survive on 2 - 3 hours of sleep each night, thus blogging, etc. has been neglected. But the past 3 nights she has actually slept pretty much the full night so I am feeling like I am coming out of the hazy fog that is my world.

Josina is such a joy! I am still in awe that I am a mother and that she is my daugher. She has been crawling for about 2 - 2 1/2 months and at 6 months started pulling herself up on her knees and then to standing. She could do without sitting up, that is so last year! Never does she sit on the floor and play with her toys. She always, always, always has to stand...against the coffee table, sofa, bookshelf, fireplace, bar stool, high chair, stair gate, jumperoo, alligator piano, toybox...need I say more? I am a very busy mom with a very active little girl! I am astounded that she can stand against her toybox (vinyl storage ottoman) and hook her elbow against it for support and play with her toys. She has recently started playing at the coffee table and moving back and forth to the sofa and then back to the coffee table. I don't think it will be long and she'll start making the motions to walk.

Well, that's about it for now. Hope you all had a happy halloween. Josina dressed up as a cute. We went to story time at the library and to her friend's house for a halloween party. I only took her out to our neighbour and good friends' house for trick-or-treating just to share the cuteness that is her. By the time I got home it was close to meltdown time so we didn't go anywhere else. TTFN.
