Elizabeth continues to be an energetic baby and loves to get in trouble. At 8 and one half months (corrected) she is now sitting on her own. She is about 16 pounds and is now rolling on her tummy.
She appears to have her own agenda and will only attempt to move if she sees something that she can get into trouble with; wrapping paper is her new motivation. Elizabeth is doing excellent at her speech therapy and is beginning to babble using consonants and making sounds that resemble mama and dada. This is a huge milestone for her.
