For now, we are enjoying every second with this little eight month old! Ok, maybe not every second since she has some wicked teeth coming in, two to be exact. Poor baby! Even then, I love every second of her!
|She's SO silly and loves 'dancing' while you hold her!|
Weight: She's at 16.78 lbs as of last week when we took her to the doctor. She still hasn't doubled her birth weight.
Sleep: There was a really awesome period where she was sleeping straight thru until 7am. Then her cold happened and concurrently so did teething and jacked everything up. She's been waking up at least once and then up for the day around 6. Last night, she woke up at 11:30 and Ernest put her to bed with just her diaper and turned off her fan and she slept til 7! The (naked) magic charm?! Aside from the bad teething days, she's been napping like a champ! We finally started sleep training and it continues to go well. Unless there are too many distraction, like when her aunt and cousin watched her last Friday and she just wanted to party.
|Saturday 6am slumber party. Sooooo sleepy still!|
Eating: this post should just be called 'teething sucks' because its pretty much put a wrench in everything, including eating. There have been some times where she is just too fussy or grumpy to want to eat. Somehow she always feels fine for HappyPuffs though, hmmmm. We introduced peaches and butternut squash to the mix. We tried carrots again and she hates them! Along with peas and green beans, not a fan at all! She fake gags on them and then does her fake cough. Where does she come up with this stuff?!
Clothes: Mostly in 6 month but transitioning into 6-9 or 9 month stuff. The 9 month is still too big but they'll fit her soon enough. She has the best summer closet! I'd be lying if I didn't say I was jealous of her closet, lol.
Activity: Busy as ever! You cannot sit this little girl down without her getting into everything. She loves to grab anything...hair, necklaces, remotes, phones, straws, etc. She is this.close to crawling but just sits there and rocks. Mostly because her preferred mode of transportation is rolling. Yes, rolling. If you put her on one end of the room she'll roll herself all the way to the other. It's hilarious! She loves to scream, squeal, yell!

|She was so jealous of cute little Peyton and kept putting her feet on her! Stinker!|

|These little ladies are SO cute!|
Dislikes: Having her face cleaned! She makes the silliest, craziest noises when we do it. Green foods. When I leave the room. Getting dressed. Other than that, she is one happy baby!
Health: I don't know how much her cold was actually a cold and how much of it was teething. I read that all the extra drool causes a cough. Either way, she's had major teething symptoms...cough, drool, grumpy, sleepless, etc.
|This is how she rolls...Rambo style|
