Yesterday Sylvia turned 8 months, which is amazing to me. She's 27 1/2 inches long, which is exactly average. Pretty good, considering how far below average she was a birth.
Yesterday Sylvia got her first (semi) major boo-boo. I was opening a package in the kitchen with a knife while holding her (dumb, I know) and she grabbed the knife. Without even thinking about it I yanked it out of her hand--and sliced open her pinky finger in the process. It bled a lot, and she cried (though not a lot) and I felt really bad (still do, truth be told).
