Shirley turned eight months right after we got home from Malawi. A lot of things happened this month. Shirley flew in a plane across the ocean, she started pulling herself up on furniture, and two of her teeth grew in. (I'd let you see, but I didn't want to have to add another crying picture.)
She still has to don a headband to avoid the "he's so cute" comments.
Shirley has definitely started to reveal that she has a...ahem...will of her own. It is clear that she understands the word, "no." If she starts to touch something she knows she's not supposed to touch and I say "No, Shirley," she'll stop and look at me and grunt, making it clear that she's not happy about it. Oh dear. It starts already.
Yep. Mischievousness right there.
As you can see, she's still growing like a weed!
As always we love our little Shirley girl!
