8 Months with Kassidy

Kassidy literally became a celebrity on her 8th month birthday.

It just so happens that I needed a cute picture of a baby to accompany a story my office was working on related to infant motor development.

And it just so happens that I knew exactly where to find a cute baby.

And since the story got some nice attention from the media, Kassidy ended up in a variety of really cool places online.

Like Futurity, a national news site for top research universities.


Or as the feature story in TAMUtimes, Texas A&M's online newsletter.

And, finally, on the actual Texas A&M homepage (screenshot below...way below. Like at the very bottom of this post).

After her 15 minutes of fame were up, Kassidy decided it was time to start pulling up with our help. First on Mommy. Then on her Baby Einstein table. And then on the dog.

That was pretty funny — I won't lie. Because every time Massey would move, Kassidy would fall face first on the floor and just look up and smile.

And besides starting to pull up and stand like a big girl, she decided to pretty much gum an entire pork chop the other day. Says a lot about Daddy's grilling skills.

And with two front teeth starting to poke through, it won't be long until this child has four pearly whites to help her out.

She's still so close to crawling, but hasn't quite figured out how to move forward instead of backward. But I know she'll get it soon.

And then I better start keeping my floors clean. Ugh.

Now she has no choice but to become an Aggie. Good thing she looks way cute in maroon.
