It seems like only yesterday that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen welcomed their first child, daughter Luna Simone, into the world.

But in reality, that was in April — and the now-8-month-old is starting to really step up her communication game!

Case in point: “We miss you, papa!! Can’t wait for you to come home!” Teigen, 31, captioned a sweet Instagram clip of Legend’s mini me, outfitted in a long-sleeved pink Carter’s onesie and waving at the camera.

Teigen — who has previously experienced “mommy shaming” on social media — also took the opportunity to anticipate (and answer) a list of questions from commenters.

“Yes she has rosy eczema cheeks, yes we are taking care of it, no it’s not a gluten allergy, no it’s not our makeup, no it’s not from our perfume, yes she’s just a baby,” the model and cookbook author added to the video’s caption.

The couple’s daughter has been hitting milestones left and right lately. In October, Luna had her first savory bite — of green beans.

The following month, the little girl’s maternal grandmother Vilailuck cross-posted a photo of Luna and the family bulldog Puddy, captioning it, “Guess what? I got one tooth now.”

Luna’s flexibility in trying new things and developing her communication isn’t a shock, considering the emphasis her parents put on keeping her well-rounded already.

“[Luna] seems to be able to handle a lot of different environments because she’s traveled a lot with us already,” Legend told PEOPLE in August. “We’ve been to Italy, and to France and New York, and Mexico with her, and so she’s traveled quite a lot with us already. She’s been able to handle all that so hopefully we’re getting her prepared for the kind of life we live.”

Teigen and Legend — who recently starred together in the musician’s video for his new song “Love Me Now” — can currently be seen in Target’s The Toycracker. In the 8-minute musical, Legend features as The Nutcracker‘sRat King and Teigen the titular character.
