Avonlea | Eight Months

Our smiley little girl is eight months old!  She makes Donald Duck noises & says “dada” all day long.  She doesn’t quite know what she means by it yet, but as much as Grayson says it to her & she repeats it, she will very soon!  She’s not crawling & seems to see no need…she […]
