8 months

Mckenna weighs 16.6 lbs (10%) and is 27.5 inches long (50%). She wears size 3-6 month, 6 month outfits and a very limited amount of 9 month outfits. She is in size 3 diapers.

Mckenna will sign more (when ever she is hungry and rarely when she is actually eating). She will sign her own version of all done when she is finished, it involves throwing her hands up in the air and smacking them back down on the tray. She also on occasion likes to imitate the sounds we make while signing, like all done *duh duh* or more *mu mu* She likes to say the words more than doing the signs, I try to make her do at least one or the other at each meal.

She loves to pat on things, we got her a little drum and she and I will just sit there and pat on it forever.

She has started crawling the real way 100% of the time now and she is FAST!! Her favorite thing to do at the moment is to stand up though.

She has mastered pulling up! She started pulling up last month but now she loves pulling up AND WALKING ALONG on anything and everything she can get her hands on. In the last few days she has even started getting brave and letting go and trying to stand on her own but ultimately falling over within a few seconds.

She smiles, kicks, bounces, and says Dada everyday when Kevin comes home from work. It's official,  She knows the word Dada and that's her first word. She will also wave and say bye. ( it sounds more like the word "I")

When Kevin is around she has learned that if she fusses daddy will always pick her up! she will let out this very cute, very pathetic, obviously fake cry and look over at him until he picks her up. its all very sad ;) lol

She recognizes her own name but I have noticed that she doesn't acknowledge me at all when I just call her Kenna. Is it possible she already has a preference on what she likes to be called?

Her words/ sounds
duh duh (done)
mu mu (more)
