Megan at 8 months:
can't really crawl but moves a whole lot
likes to stand
still eats mostly purees, but loves graham cracker and banana pieces
is almost always happy
doesn't have any teeth
laughs when her parents make funny sounds
is content to play with her toys for long stretches of time
loves to look at books
says "mama" and "dada"
Megan loves to look at books. We always read and/or look at 2 or 3 books before naps and sometimes Daddy will read a few stories before bed. I don't want to be a pushy mom or expect her to be a little valedictorian, but I would love for her to be a reader because I think that it is essential to future success.
She looks like she could crawl in this pose, but so far she always ends up back on her belly.

So she isn't crawling, but she can push herself backwards really well. Today is the first day she is getting her belly off the ground, so I thought I'd try and capture it. She is also babbling, mainly "bababa" and "dadada," but an occasional "mamamama." I'm pretty sure the mama counts for me, because she does it when she is crying at night.

Yep, Megan licked Adisyn. Oddly enough, we also have other pictures of her licking or trying to lick Adisyn and/or Jonathan. She was extra wiggly yesterday, I think all the extra attention and lack of naps were a factor.
Here is the main section. It's 8' x 10'.
This is the other angle of it.
One of my goals was to have as few cords and techno stuff showing as possible. I think this was fairly well acheived. The cpu and the components are all in one cabinet and the office supply/bill/mail stuff is in the other.
The rest makes up my beautiful SCRAPBOOK space! I have never been more organized and it is making my scrapbook time much more efficient. I know where everything is and can access it quickly. The first cabinet has my paper and projects in progress as well as my newly organized photo albums.
The lazy susan while not exactly what I wanted at first, is ideal for my jars of ribbon, buttons, flowers, etc.
In the middle cabinet, I used a tension rod to hang all my sheets of stickers, rub-ons and other flat additions. This way I can just flip through very quickly in search of that oh so perfect embellishment.
The drawers hold the tools so I can just grab and go. (Once I get scrapbooking however, I often still lose them under a pile of paper...)
We also installed some cabinets in another part of the room to house a mini-fridge, microwave, board games and other things we use regularly for entertaining. The cabinets are ideal for scrapbooking as they are just the right height to stand at a work surface (and tall enough that Megan will be like 6 before she can reach anything). We found out at our New Year's Party, they also work great for entertaining.
I posted pictures of the rest of our attic in May, if you want to see the before.

This page has been tormenting me for 3 days now. I just can't seem to get it right. Ditch the turkeys? Ditch the flowers? I'm not really into color blocking, but it seemed cute at the time. Not sure if I should call it done. (The colors didn't scan well, they really do match each other).

I'm trying to post more pictures to balance the scrapbook pages as I was informed by someone who will remain anonymous (but his initials are "Grandpa Warner") that he wanted to see pictures of Megan, not scrapbook pages...

If you don't look to close, this next one looks like she's doing a cheer, even though she is really just trying to break free of being held.
