8 months


8 months and happy as can be! We often get comments about what a happy baby she is, and the fact is not lost on us. She has such a bright and fun personality. 

  • We introduced the sippy cup. We started with this cup, and it has been great! It only took her a couple of tries to get it figured out. She loves enjoying apple juice in her big girl cup (side note - mostly water, with a tiny bit of juice).
  • Between 7 and 8 months, we introduced mum mums and puffs. She loves them! 
  • Has 4 bottles a day and eats 3 meals 
  • Wears size 2 diapers, averages 5 a day
  • She likes to "blow bubbles" (or is it spitting?) when she is frustrated. It is hilarious. she scrunches up her face and blows bubbles to get her point across when she is frustrated. 
  • She loves peekaboo!
  • She has one little tooth about to break through. Teething has been accompanied by a bad cold, so I don't know what fussiness is teething and what is her cold. Thankfully, her sleeping hasn't been dramatically effected
  • She takes 2 naps a day, both about 2-2.5 hours. 
  • She likes to give pats. Sometimes when I am patting her back to burp her, she is patting my back at the same time. 
  • She has started the army crawl. I think full crawling will be happening any day now. 
  • She has started to squeal. She first squealed when she saw her cousins after they returned from their grandparents for Christmas. But now she has made squealing a daily occurrence.

The last 6 weeks we have battled multiple sickness, 'tis the season I guess. She has had the stomach bug, and two different colds.
All this sickness + a new tooth, makes me ready to get back to our normal healthy groove, but she has been a trooper!

7 months >>> 8 months
